    I kind of agree with rkrd, Georgiana (Georgina) and Annabeth (Ann) honour family members, but I love those names anyway, and for different reasons so it's more coincidental. Those are pretty much all the variations on family names I like.

    My grandmother's name is a Japanese name meaning spring child (Haruko), and I would honor her by using Aviva which means spring.

    I intend on using the actual names, but another nice idea would be to use a concept or figure important to your honoree. For instance, my grandmother admires Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt on a really deep level. If I were to use Franklin or Eleanor, I would be honoring her as well as the actual namesake. My great-grandfather grew orchids in a greenhouse as a hobby, and actually bred a new species, and my uncle named his boat the Orchid after that. (Not a child, but still.)
