My grandmother's name was Iona, which she hated but I think is unique, and my husband's grandma is Ruth Beatrice. My greatgrandmother was Jeannie, which I also think is lovely. I love the idea of going with family names. As for boys some unique family names include Willis, Francis, Howard, Herald and Fredrick.

Reuben: 1890. aw, close enough.

I love the middle name variation you have going: 1, 0, 2…

(we have a doubler middle, too)

Daisy happened when were visiting NYC one summer and we walked past a mother and 4-year old daughter. Not even pregnant yet, I heard the mom say, "Come along, Daisy!" and knew that 'if ever', I would name a daughter Daisy. (Ironically enough, we moved to NYC 18 months ago!) McAllister is the name of my son, we chose it b/c it's the MAIDEN NAME of a well-loved and amazing great-grandmother whom I actually remembered growing up. Well after his birth I researched out her father and grandfather and found out they were amazing men in their own right.

So:
London Emilie
McAllister J (just the letter after my FIL)
Daisy Caroline (which to this day I still dislike the middle name, it was all my husband's idea. When we fight, 4 years later, I'll still say, "and I don't even like Daisy's middle name!")

Good luck with the names!

Sat, 14 Nov 2009 14:07:56 +0000 http://www.gabrielleblair.com//?p=254#comment-69936 When we named our son, we had similar criteria as you: unique, but not too weird. So we decided on Hugo Simon. Now, faced with naming baby boy #2 due to arrive in February, it's an even bigger challenge to come up with a name.

Thus far our list consists of: Malcolm, Jasper and Angus. Such joy to name a new baby!

My middle name is Earline (pronounced er-lean) it's a family name. I love it as well though it often does get mispronounced.

For boys I like Spenc.

As soon as he said it I felt the baby move for the first time. We figured he was telling us something and the name stuck!
