    Names to honor someone or someones!

    I'm not pregnant or anything, still a teen. But just looking for new names to add to my list, names that would honor family members. I'm going to leave my signature on so that you guys can figure out my naming style. I like some classics but I'm definitely not afraid to be bold. Most of the names on my signature list are moving to the mn slot because I realized they sound terrible with my three ln and I'm kinda heartbroken because of it, so I kinda need more names to inspire me again and what wouldn't be any better than to find names that would honor someone!

    Here are the names given special honor;

    Rosario (I might use my mothers name as a mn)
    Kenneth (three people got this name, grandfather, father and older brother, I'm not using this name)
    Jocasta
    Timotea (hardie, I know)
    Ramon (I'm honoring with Ramona)
    Henri/Honri/Beatrice (my grannie changed her name about three times, I do like Henry)
    Dulce-Maria
    Francisco (I already like Francesca, but would like to see other options)
    Susanna (I really hate Susan but I adore Lily, but like to see other options)
    William
    Julio
    Apollinaire
    George (I already got Georgina, which I love!)

    Thanks for everything and cheers!

    All of my names are meaningful, but most of them honor fictional or historical figures, not real people. The exceptions:

    First Names
    Faye (my beloved mentor)
    Jane (my aunt)
    Louise/Louisa (Louis is a family name, and one I love, but unfortunately it's unusable for me as it's my estranged father's original first name)
    Eve/Eva (my grandmother's name was Yvette)
    Thea (my sister's name is S0phie, which means wisdom, as does Thea)
    Sylvie (a soundalike of S0phie - and incidentally, Sylvie and Thea are both protagonist in another wonderful mentor's novels)
    Marigold (there are a lot of Marys in my mother's family, and it's her middle name)
    Marina (another Mary honor name - the sea also has a great deal of family significance)
    Judah (for my grandfather)
    Benjamin (the name of a dear friend)
    Abram (ditto)
    Ajax (Jack and John are family names, but both are too popular for me to consider as a first)
    Geneva (an updated version of Jean, the name of a mentor)
    Ruby (this is VERY roundabout, but my favorite memory with my grandmother is of watching ruby-throated hummingbirds in her garden)

    Middle Names
    Fritz (my grandfather's name)
    Frida (a feminization of Fritz)
    Selma (my grandfather's mother's name)
    Susanna (my mother's name is Sus@n)
    John (traditionally, the name of the firstborn son in my mother's family - I would use Jack as a first name, if only it weren't so popular!)
    Sailor (my grandfather and one of my mentors were/are avid sailors)
    Elizabeth (my mother's best friend)
    Tailor (a maiden name on my mother's side)
    Elfrida (a combination of two honor names)
    Abraham (the name of a friend)
    Columbine (I go to school at a big college with a soundalike name...pretty sure you can figure this one out)
    Jean (mentor)
    Simon Valor | Eloise Lily | Judah Sage | Thea Marina | Felix Orion | Iris Cordelia | Roscoe Benjamin | Lydia Wren | Jasper Conroy | Phaedra Naomi | Adrian Bruno | Lucinda 'Indie' Jane | Wallace Finnegan | Sylvie Winifred | Charles 'Charlie' Elliot | Juniper Faye | Julian 'Jules' Atlas | Matilda Sailor | Marlowe Charles | Alice Elizabeth | Jack Mariner | Marigold 'Maggie' Susan

    Just a grad student, dreaming ahead...

    Oh, it's such a shame. I'm not really feeling any of the "Rosa, Dulce, or Susanna" names. I just find them a bit bland.
    Out of the Kenneth names, I really like Kenji, maybe Kenya (if it wasn't a country) and Kenzie… or Mackenzie? I feel like this name is too popular? How about McKenna?
    Asta, my oh my, I looked up the meaning, it is very beautiful name! I like Jacoby too!
    Ramina is lovely too, but I think I like Ramona more. I don't know about Ramsey. I feel like you have too be one of those people who just don't shock you, "ballsy" people and while I have a huge personality. I'm definitely not those.. lol
    Enrique, I think it's so funny how my mother named me after a song by Julio Iglesias who just happens to be the father of Enrique Iglesias, so maybe its meant to be? haha. I like Hendrix. Beacon and Beamer are warming up to me. They just sound so cool.
    Roscoe, Willow, Liam, Julius, are middle name contenders, especially Julius.
    Apolline is very beautiful name. But sadly in spanish, two L's next to each other makes a J sound and the whole name sounds like "Ahpo-Jenie" or "Apple-Genie" (lol) so I guess thats a no.
    I also thought Giovanni was a stretch from George? But I like it!

    Thank you so much! I'll be adding some of these to my list. Maybe it can get my hopes up, it kinda just sucks that the first of my last names starts with a Kirk-. I noticed that names ending in A or E just sounds better with the harsh Kirk.

    Thanks again.
