Is this a weird idea? (Titanic Names)
With the 100th anniversary of the Titanic shipwreck coming up on April 10th, I decided to look up the victims list and had the idea that using names from the victims list would be a cool way to honor the dead, especially the children who didn't have a chance for life. Like one little 2yr old girl named Helen Loraine. Or naming after people in the heroic engine room workers who kept the ships electricity running until 2 min before sinking even when they were allowed to leave. Or other useable names from the victims list like, Elin Ester Maria, Ida Augusta Margareta, Ellis Anna Maria, Ebba Iris Alfrida, Sigrid Elisabeth or Filip Oscar, Adrien Finnin, Edward Gifford, Pierre Giuseppe, Alfred Flemming, etc.
My husband thought it was a bizzare and strange idea.
What do ya'll think. Cool way to honor the dead, or just morbid?
Here was the website incase anyone was interested:

I think you're crazy. Sounds way to creepy to me.

I don't think it's a bad idea. There are probably some cool names on the list.

I think it's beautiful, in a ever-so-slightly morbid way. You could probably find some beautiful and classic names on that list, and what a cool thing for someone to be able to explain their name from. I might reserve it for a child born on that exact day though, unless you're really into the Titanic yourself.
