I am due in a few weeks with a girl and we have decided on Lorelei for the first name. For her middle name I would like to use a family name, either Jane (my grandma's first name) or Ellen (my other grandma's middle name). Last name is two syllables and starts with T. I think I like the way Jane sounds better, but I am torn because my grandma Jane passed away several years ago, while my grandma Ellen is still alive. This will be Ellen's first great-granddaughter and I know it would mean so much to her if we used her middle name. Any thoughts? I would love to hear opinions on Ellen vs. Jane as a middle name, and also what you might do in this situation. Thanks!
