    Dolores
    Grace
    Lee
    Martha
    Morgan
    Taylor
    Veronica

    I think it's neat to honor family when naming.

    I really love Grace (even though its popular) and Veronica for first names. The rest I would prefer as middles.

    Ashton, Morgan, and Taylor I really like as a girls names and have met one girl of each. Althought Ashton spelled her name Ashtyn, which I am not crazy over.

    Here is some combos of the list you gave...
    Morgan Lee- really like this
    Taylor Morgan- also really like
    Dolores Grace- also really like
    Martha Grace
    Martha Lee- this as well
    Veronica Grace
    Veronica Lee

    I love old fashioned names that are typically considered "grandma names" and give them some youth by cute nicknames for them.
    Dolores- Dolly, Dottie, Lola, Dora
    Martha- Mattie, Martie, Mary
    Veronica- Vera, Vivi (vee vee), Ronnie, Nica (knee-ca)

    Ellie {9}, Anna {19m}, and Hope {nb}.
    Also Smitten with these beauties...
    Emilia/Zelda/Jocelyn/Arabel/Thalia/Mavis/Vivia

    I adore Grace and would use it as a first name or a middle name. It is such a gorgeous name. The other names I would personally use as middle names. I like honoring and having names with special meaning. To make them even more interesting and special I like to find ways to honor that only close family and friends would notice. We can then share with those we wish to. It also allows my child to have their own name but a name that is extra special.

    I do love this idea! I've often thought about combining 2 family names or using something like Lola to honor Dolores.
