Just about the highest form of flattery is having someone name their child after you. And when selecting baby names, the best place to start is by taking a look at your own family tree for some inspiration. Even last names can sometimes be an unexpectedly wonderful new baby name!
I was named after my Great Aunt Ashley (on my Dad’s side) who must have been great if I was worthy of being named after her! It is a wonderful tradition for your family, and a great way to carry on a legacy of relatives past. And by all means, if you’re a Junior or “the III” keep the tradition alive! What a wonderful way to pass down the stories of this person & their life to a younger generation.
