    • Our son Steven was chosen from his dad’s middle name...we reversed it as hub is Robert Steven and son is Steven Robert.

      My name was chosen as it was my grandmother’s name Mary, and my middle name was chosen as my mom like the actress’s name Susan Hayward.

    • I lived 20 yrs of my life assuming my mom sort of picked the worst possible name she could randomly find.  No, turns out she loved the movie Gone with the Wind.   frown  

      Since I have a long difficult to spell name, I wanted all my kids to have nice short names. First daughter was one I just liked out of the baby book.  First son, same thing.  Middle names were family names.  Second daughter, given the scandanavian form of her Czech grandmother’s name. Idiot son, I let his father name him and I’m pretty sure he named him after a chick he had the hots for in highschool and still does to this day.
