Did you name your child after someone?

When I was in high school (like 15 years ago lol) my principal vowed to name his unborn daughter after me. I thought he was joking because it was the first time I ever met him. However, years later when my little sister started high school she had a class with his daugther and she had the same name me. My uncle also named his daughter after me. I feel so special lol. My name is Lisette btw, but people call me Lisa.

    I don't have kids yet, but expecting my first baby in march. It's going to be named after itself. I don't like naming them after famous people or family members. Last name already states a family name. It's own name should be unique in my opinion.

    With this I don't mean that there will be nobody on this planet with the same name, but just that we don't want to name him after someone specifically.

    My partners named after his fathers nick name and his brother has his fathers name as a middle name

    Personally im not to keen on it ... Maybe family members names used as middle names or a variation used as a main name.

    I wouldn't call my child after somebody i knew because i like unusual names and try my hardest to avoid names that people i know have got.

    Saying that i would like someone to name their child after me ;)

    I named my first born daughter after my dad...Her name is Laura and my dads name is Laurence. I also named my 2nd born daughter after my stepfather...her name is Jamie, and his name is James.

    My son is named after his dad and kind of after my brother as well. His first name is Muhammad, after his dad, and his middle name is Haroun<---HA-ROON, which is the Arabic version of the name Aaron. My brothers name is Aaron.

    My 3rd born daughters middle name is after my mother-in-law and her Grandmother, Rais<--RY-EECE.

    My 4th born daughter is Aleena...and she isn't named after anyone...we just liked the name.
