    Rory in honor of Richard?

    Can Rory pass as a legitimate variant of Richard? They both begin with R and Rory means king, Richard means ruler so...similar enough?

    Also, general thoughts/opinions on Rory?

    Thanks!

    I'm not a fan of Rory in honor of Richard. Have you considered Frederick? That's my go-to to honor my grandpa Richard.

    There's also Enrique, which isn't technically a form of Richard but I think it works.
    Current favorites:
    Cora . Louisa . Lydia . Mary

    I think the similar meanings are a cool way of coming up with an honouring name, personally if I was going to use an honouring name I'd want it to be more obvious but if you don't want it to be obvious then it's a cool idea.
    I really like the name Rory!

    I love Rory. It's a stretch but it works indirectly. Though it might be a tough sell to family.

    Richard who goes by "Rory" might be better. I know they're different names, but Rory is so informal sounding, I think it could work as a nickname.
    Some current considerations:

    Cora Madeleine | Etta Rosalie | Hazel Miranda | Margot Eliza | Sylvie Coraline | Vivienne Esme
    Archer Daniel | Callum Sawyer | Emmett Sebastian | Ezra Byrne | Leo Vincent | Rhys Anderson
