    Your grandparents' names??

    Does anyone's grandparents have interesting or newly fashionable names that they would use perhaps in middle or even first place? Or just names that sound nice and are interesting?

    My Indian grandmother on my mom's side is named Sumitra, which I think is beautiful. She goes by Sumi. My American grandfather on my dad's side was named Harry but went by his middle, Arden, which I would use on a girl now.

    What about your grandparents? What names do they have that you would use/that you like?

    My mom's parents are Eleanor and Ivo, both of which I LOVE. I absolutely plan to use Ivo as a mn someday and only wish I had the guts to use it as a FN. My dad's parents are Roy and Patricia. My sister used Patricia as a mn, so I probably wouldn't use that, but I think I'd like to use Roy as a mn someday also. This is slightly off-topic, but another of my sisters considered combining Ivo+Roy into Ivory for a mn, which I thought was very creative, but she worried it would come off racist or offensive somehow. She used Elicia (Eleanor + Patricia) instead.
