Honoring a grandma
My husband would like a middle name or a first name to honor his grandma.
her name is Linda Kay Lee. we would like a name to come from hers but not be directly Linda, Kay, or Lee. And no we don't like Kaylee.
(My husband is still not in love with the name Rosalie like I am which I think Rosa-lee would be a great way to honor his grandma and still have something different.)
What do you think?

I would like to suggest Rosalind with the nickname Lindy! It's a lot like Rosalie, but it honours his grandma's first name and so he might be more into it? Lindy is so sweet!
Lilike / Lilika - would be something really different, but I like that it has Li- from Linda, -li- from Lee, and -ke/-ka from Kay. Awesome middle name material!
Kalindi / Kalinda
Lily / Lilia
Lina / Lena
Linden / Linnet / Lilac
Leandra - Quite similar to Linda actually!
