Would you use a last name as a first name to honour a grandparent?The first and middle names were 'old-lady-ish'& hubby likes using the last name of his grandma..They will name her:Kelly Natasha..Yes it's a bit 80s to me,but love that it's not overly popular now..So what do ya'll think?

I wouldn't use EVERY surname on EVERY child in honor of someone–some just don't work, either at all, or on one gender or the other–but this one seems totally feasible to me.

Looks like a perfectly nice name for me! :) Names with history or family significance always seem to get my vote. I think it makes them extra special.

I think that is a nice choice... and works well as a first name. It is a nice way to honor someone, IMO.

Yes, I would definitely do something like that IF I also liked the name. I know someone whose maiden name was Cole, so she named her son Cole. My Mother's maiden name is Taylor, and I would consider using that for either a boys or girls name, she always said she wanted to do that.

Honestly, I don't think there's anything wrong with it!
