    Honoring Family Without Using There Name

    Any names to Honor these without actually using the names like variations of them I could use as a middle or first name.

    Edna - I can think of Eden but that's it.
    Amelia - I already kinda honored this one with my daughter Amy.

    Sibling Amy-Louise surname Kitcher.

    Other people already gave you some great name variations, but I'll offer a different idea. Some of the names I have considered to honor certain family members have nothing to do with their names at all...

    - their birth flower or birthstone or even the month they were born in (i.e. June, May, Violet, Rose, Pearl, Ruby, etc.)
    - something having to do with their personality (i.e. husband's grandmother was OBSESSED with all things Gone with the Wind, especially Vivien Leigh so we could use names such as Vivien, Scarlett, Tara, Clark, Rhett, etc.; my mother's favorite song is "Hey Jude" by the Beatles so we could use Jude; if my mother-in-law had had a girl, she loved the name Blair; my mother's favorite animal is a pig so I could use Portia
    - my mother was born on the first day of summer so I could use Summer

    These are just some examples to help you see how you can be creative with honoring someone and it doesn't necessarily just have to be a variation of their name. Sometimes it's even more special and personal when you find a more unique way to honor them.

    Good luck!
