Convinced DH to name baby's middle name after my mom!!

So for a while we were trying to figure out a middle name for Jenna.. my mother's name is Gloria (not the best name esp for today's world). If my mom's name wasn't Gloria i doubt i would use it but i am not sure any baby will ever be named after my mom and I am naming this baby's first name after DH's deceased mom. I kind of felt a little bad that i haven't included my mom in any child i am having.

I like Jenna Glorianne. Cool way to use Gloria too. I love family names. DS is named Joshua Todd after my brother (Josh) and DH's brother (Todd), but we cell him JT. If this baby is a girl, she is Eden Elise (Elise is my middle name and SIL's middle name) and if a boy he is Jordan Scott (Scott is DH's name).

I would love to use my deceased mom's name, but Pamela Patriciais just not good, anyway you try and use it! We especially like family names and Biblical names.

I think that's really very thoughtful and a nice way to honor your mom while also paying tribute to your deceased MIL. I strongly prefer Jenna Glorianne -- only because I don't love the two names ending in "a".

Jenna Glorianne the double a's sound off together... i love the names with meaning opposed to the made up not really a name you can pronounce names :)

I like Jenna Glorianne. I think it is a wonderful way to include both moms.

i think it's an awesome idea to wait until she's born to announce the full name, and for your mom to find out then!!! would pay to see that pic!

Yeah, i think i'll do that...I know she was talking about it at my baby shower with DH's cousin. who said they both liked Glorianne..( i mentioned that variation that I liked instead of Gloria -for an option as a middle name). I said to them, well if DH goes along with it.... I havent' spoken about the middle name since. :)
