Named my son Anders David, Anders came from a grandfather from Norway, David from my and my husband's fathers.
To answer the question, my oldest has my brothers name (Garrett) as his middle name bc my brother asked me to use it, and I love the name.
My middle sons first name is after his deceased uncle on his fathers side.
My youngest has names that I chose bc I like them.
I don't feel bad.
To answer your question, my son's first name, Gregory, is after his grandfather who passed away when his father was 16. His middle name, James, is a popular name in my family. My grandfather, uncle, great-uncle, and cousin share that name. My dad and brother have it as a middle name.
I'm not a fan of Gregory's first name, but I promised his dad if we had a boy we would name him after his dad.
After I had Conner and Hunter, I wanted to keep with the "er" theme so named my third Spencer. He was originally supposed to be Carmine (after a character in the game Gears of War) but I couldn't part with the "er". So this baby was going to be Porter for a boy and Piper for a girl. My husband begged for me to stop the "er" and I suggested Harley for my dad and my husband yelled "Harley Quinn" and I was like YES! I don't want her to hate us when she's older and realizes she was named after Joker's psychiatrist in Arkham Asylum who fell in love with him and kind of went crazy, but I'm sure she'll hate us for something when she's 16, so why not this. I may still add Viola as well though.
If we have a boy the middle name will be Tyler after SOs best friend (they where like brothers) who passed away when he was 14 in an accident. The crazy thing is my due date is five days before his friend Tylers birthday.
all three of DD's names are after three different people.
originally, we wanted all of our kids to be namesakes, but now i don't know.
i love DD's name, but idk about future kids.

it's just that a name like that opens up a lot of opportunity for her to get laughed at. But w/e, it's your choice.
My dd was named after my aunt, and also a lady I met years ago who I found very inspirational.
i love it!! i always liked the names chapel or priest too....from spawn comics..lol
dd mn is after my grandmas mn
Harley is terrible, especially for a girl. It's a name suitable for motorcycles and dogs, that's about it. I picture Harley as a 40 something chain smoking biker with a Tweety bird tattoo. Harley Quinn is even worse.
Anyways, my son has my maiden name as his middle. My daughter is sort of named for my mom. Her middle name is Jean but we didn't really like it, so we went with June, which is her birth month as well.
What about Viola Quinn.
If you're having a girl after 3 boys why are you giving her 2 boys names?
My exs mum did this lol, after 6 boys she had a daughter and her name is Toni, not even short for Antoinette or anything.
My sons middle name is my brothers name. Corban.
My dear daughter is after my Aunty who passed away when I was pregnant with her. Nicole.
My baby isn't named after anyone. She just has names we liked.

I know two grown ladies named Quinn. I wouldn't choose it for my own kid, but it's a nice enough name.

In know that they can both be used for a girl but it just sounds really manly both together.
I know 1 Quinn and 2 Quintins. All male
