    No, I don't think parents (grandparents) should coerce or pressure their children to choose any name they don't absolutely love. Even telling them "you can choose any name that means wolf" is severely limiting. If this is just a fun thing you & your sister want to do when naming your kids, thats your decision, but don't expect your children to follow suit. You wouldn't be happy if your parents or in-laws tried to put restrictions on you when naming your children. Don't be 'those people'.

    You get your chance to names your kids but you don't have the right or ability to dictate what futu generations choose. One of your children's spouses am have a name they have always love or a family name they want to use.. why should they be constrained by what you and your sister decided years earlier?

    I don't believe in family naming requirements. I think they are limiting and controlling of something that should be fun, unique, and special to each family!
