What are you and YOUR siblings named?
We all want to create the perfect names for our children, but what are the names your parents gave to you and your siblings? Would you ever pick those combos for your children? How/why did those names come about.
My name: Stephanie Anne - Stephanie after my father (Stephen) and Anne after an aunt.
Brother's name: Glen David - Glen after my great-grandpa and David after an uncle.
Stephanie & Glen. Steph & Glen. I would not choose either of these names for my own children but I do think they go well together. I could be biased though.
