    Giving your daughter your mother's/grandmother's maiden name is, to me, the Southern-est of Southern naming practices. You can most certainly venture further off into other branches of your family tree also.

    Unfortunately this isn't a workable solution for everyone (I doubt we're going to be seeing people naming their children Pulaski or Berkowitz anytime soon) but that's probably why this practice remains confined to Southerners of British or French extraction.

    I have a soft spot for Reed - it's my mother's maiden name and it would be at the top of my list for a son or a daughter.

    Some of the other heirloom names I knew/encountered/heard growing up were:

    Girls: Adair, Ashton, Britton, Carter, English, Ferron, Hollis, McCall, Merritt, Morgan, Perrin, Yates
    Boys: Baker, Britt, Burke, Butler, Fielder, McCormick, McKay ("Mac" as nn), Pierce, Walker, Whitton (nn "Whit")
    Favorite Names:

    GIRLS: Abigail — Adelaide —Alice — Anna — Averell — Caroline — Clara — Consuelo — Edith —Eleanor — Ellery — Emmeline — Georgiana — Hadley — Holland — Isabel — Judith —Kerr — Lilly — Louisa — Lucienne — Margaret — Maria —Martha —Michaelle — Mireille

    BOYS: Aaron — Andrew — Benjamin —Charles — Christopher —Durand —Everett — Ezra — Henry —James — John — Leith —Reed — William —Wright
