Is there a recurring name that crops up in every generation in your family? One that is brought out as often as possible?
Rebecca was the name of both my grandmothers. It was also the name of my husband’s mother. This was in a culture where we don’t purposely name a baby for a living person; it was pure coincidence.
I am writing a story for my granddaughters about all the Rebeccas, including their Auntie Rebekah.
Probably Scott, since that was our grandfather’s last name and several people have used it for first names for children.
Lydia was my mothers name and her grandmother. Now it’s our oldest’s name ,my great niece’s name and will probably our first great-granddahghter’s name.
Caroline. I was hoping to use it, too, but got a Caleb instead.
Mike or Michael. If you holler out “Michael” at a family reunion, eight people turn their head to answer.
My great grandmother was Pauline Ann, grandma was Lodema Ann, mom is Paula Ann. So my mom tried not to name us after anyone in her family. But my sisters and I got right back into that tradition with our boys.
