Family Baby Name Traditions

Today’s Question of the Week was inspired by a comment on our Facebook page, noting that names that end with the letter A were a “family tradition” for that berry.

How interesting!  While family name traditions are more conventionally thought of as calling all the oldest child Joseph or Elizabeth or giving children names that start with the same letter, there really is no strict definition to what might constitute a naming tradition.

So we put the question to you: What are the naming traditions in your own family?

Does everyone have mom’s maiden name in the middle?  Maybe you all give each other unexpected nicknames?

Beyond your own family, what interesting family baby names traditions have you heard?

Or maybe there’s a naming tradition you’d like to start?
