    Subtle Theme for Names

    To start with, I am not pregnant right now. I am, however, thinking of what I would like to name my future children. I want a larger family (4 children), on my own or with my future husband (provided he agrees).

    I have the names mostly figured out, but am stumped on one of them. Each of the names I like honors a family member or close friend (both first and middle), although some are variations on the actual name. In addition, I wanted double middle names (the names are all pretty short but packed with meaning), with all to be nature themed without being obvious -- yes, I figured out how to do this while still using honor names (i.e. my MN, Lee, means meadow).

    3 of the names hold to this, but the 4th is a sticking point. I like the nature themed middle name so much I would like it as a first name, but it would break the mold. I am not sure what I should do. Do I stick to the pattern set for the other 3 or do I switch it up and break the mold for that 1 child only?

    What would you do in this situation?

    If you love the name and it's still full of meaning, I'd still use it, even if it broke the pattern

    I appreciate the quick response. I believe that I will stick with the first name I love and use the other as a MN. The name on a whole will still stick to the "theme" I want, just in a different order than the others.

    Thank you.
