    Question Family Ties

    Okay, so question:

    Is it better to name a child after a treasured family member is the name is workable and "okay"

    or is it better to go with a name you really love.

    For instance, I LOVE the first names in my signature, so those won't change, but 'Dwyn' and "Kevin" are both family names that I think work, but I don't LOVE the way I would love Cytheria Violet or Sequoia Jonathan.

    Now my first instinct is to say just go with what I love, but then I imagine my son smiling as he plays with his grandpa that he shares a middle name with, and the affection and bond that it might create, and I question what the right way to go is.

    Anyone else have a similar conundrum? What did you do?
