FantasyandPrayer Says:


I think I want to use this as a middle name for a girl. It was my grandmother's maiden name and I've wanted to use it as an honour name for a while but it's never quite felt right on a boy, it feels too clunky. But on a girl it seems right, it feels very strong and solid, and i'd hope it would form a connection between my daughter and my grandmother, one of the greatest, strongest women I knew. After all, if you can name a girl James why not Stafford?
