    Honoring Grandma

    We would really like to honor one of our grandma's with either a first or middle name for our little one due this spring. However, for various reasons we can't use their exact names. I'd love some help thinking of variations! Here are the options:

    Mary
    Louise
    Joyce
    Evelyn

    Thanks everyone!

    Ouen Amos, Cillian Ambrose, Oswin Maverick, Casimir Orlando, Oscar Phineas

    Trying to avoid repeats:
    Mary: Marietta, Maris, Marisol, Molly, Maribel, Miriam, Mariana, Mara, Maura, Marielle, Maren
    Louise: Lovisa, Lula, Louella, Lou
    Joyce: Joy, Joseline, Josie, names meaning or related to Joy (Blythe, Aliza, Abigail, Allegra, Felicity, Beatrice)
    Evelyn: Eva, Eve, Aveline, Evelina

    The four names there will make great bases for whatever name you choose. You're lucky they are names with so many variants and options.
    Girls:
    Catherine/Kathleen, Susan/Susannah, Anne/Anna/Annabeth, Jane, Margaret/Marguerite, Rose/Rosemary, Cecile/Cecily, Flora/Laura, Gwendolen, Paloma, Tabitha, Lucille, Beatrice, Harriet

    Boys:
    Frederick, Hugh/Hugo, Wilfred, Basil, Augustin, Edmund, Arlo, Timothy

    Family names are wonderful. Our daughter is named after my husband's grandma and she really love's having a great-grandma that shares her name (Great-Grandma enjoys sharing her name as well).

    You have so many great name variation possibilities! I prefer names to be as close to the relative's they are honoring as possible so if I were you I would go with

    Marie
    Louisa
    Joy
    Eve
