    Naming after my mother by association with her name and personality. Suggestions?

    That's a long thread title but I didn't quite know how to describe it.

    My mother has one of the world's most unpractical names ever: Marrigje. Yeah, that's painful. It's just the name on her passport, she doesn't use it in real life. However, in real life she uses this other not so practical name: Marry. I kid you not, two 'r's, the verb in English. My mother's Dutch so she didn't 'suffer' much and she was named after her grandmother and it was a fairly common name at that time where she lived so to her her name just seemed very uninspired. I want to honour my mother in some way if I'd ever name a child, I'll say it again: not pregnant for a long while. She absolutely hates the name Marie because that's what people thought she was called but she wasn't and someone even named their dog Marie to tease her. So all Maria derivatives and such are out, and she'd consider that a cop out anwyay.That's why I thought why not name a *potential* child after who my mother is? And that does include her name.

    So my question to you, can you find names that you associate with these words/have meanings that are associated with these words:
    Marriage
    Nurse
    Sun
    Pragmatism

    Both girls and boys!

    Could you possibly use your mothers middle name/s or maiden name for more inspiration?

    Sorry, I didn't know if you wanted names for a boy or girl. Hope that has helped somewhat.
