So it is a tradition in my H's family to name the firstborn son with the grandfather's middle name (my H has his grandfather's middle name, and he wants this baby to have his father's). However, we have also been talking about a way to honor both our fathers, especially since mine has passed away, and we were very close.
My father's name: Melvin - he hated it, and I am not a fan, either.
H's father's name: John
Is there a way - or maybe a name? - that could honor both? I really don't want to give him two middle names (ie, Baby Melvin John or Baby John Melvin), especially because my father didn't love his name.
This might not be possible without doing just that, though. Just wanted to throw it out there and see if anyone had any good ideas!
