    We don't have many "honor" names on our list anymore, but a few still exist.

    Some are family names (Powell, Dominic, Alena, Emilia, etc.)
    Some are heritage-related (Enzo, Soren, etc.)
    Some are symbolic (Ellis after Ellis Island, since our families mostly came to the US, not were born here; June, after the month we met and married in, a couple of years later)
    Some are after famous people (Ewan....and Callum, who isn't famous, but is the son of Vloggers we watch)

    Rosemary is a special case, because it is almost a Frankenstein type of honor name. I did have a great aunt named Rosemary, but she died when I was young. Instead, Rose honors a few relatives/close friends who have the middle name Rose. Mary is after my great-grandmother and after a few relatives who have the middle name Mary/Marie. So...it covers quite a few bases.

    Odette is the French version of my father's MN (Otto) & my mother's maiden name (Oddo). It essentially combines the two.

    Not currently on my list but a possibility when I have children:
    Pearl / Marguerite ~ honors my mother b/c pearl is her birthstone.
    Catharina / Catherine ~ MIL's middle name is Catherine.
    Anouk (any "Anna" name really) ~ means "grace" which is MIL's FN.
    Elena ~ mothers MN is Ellen.
    Otto ~ See above.
    René ~ Honors my MN, Renée.

    I also have a lot of names that would honor mine & my SO's heritage.

    Bronte Isabella is to the Bronte sisters and for Isabella Linton from Wuthering Heights (some of my favourite writers and one of my favourite characters)
    On my long list, I have Ginevra Snow, which is a nod to another favourite Bronte novel and character (Villette. Lucy Snowe and Ginevra Fanshawe) and Ginevra can also mean Geneva so it's a nod to Mary Shelley and Frankenstein
    I have Henry in several of my combos too, which is a nod to Henry Clerval from Frankenstein

    I don't really like the idea of honouring family members, but I do like literary connections/honourings in my combos
