Their 2nd names are after my parents.
It's tradition to name children after your parents for us, but we decided to use them as second names. Me and my siblings are each named after our grandparents, I have my paternal grandfathers name

DS's middle names are mine and DF's grandfathers, both on our mother's side.
This baby's middle names will be mine and DF's father's names.
Their first names are just because we liked them

We both agreed on our son's name, Jeremy, as it reminded us of one of favourite songs. He wasn't named after the song, but we both loved the name and the song as well. Also, DH's fave book is "To Kill A Mocking Bird", and there's a character called Jem in the book, which DH always loved. So we named him Jeremy and we call him Jem for short. I love that his name is not extremely common, but still a strong, classic name. Also, "J" names run in my family, so the name is perfect for us.

DS's middle name is my fathers nickname growing up, no one in my fathers side of the family has used his given name in nearly 60 years so his nickname seemed more appropriate
DD's middle name is handed down from MIL side of the family, it is MILs middle name and her mothers maiden name so it has a bit of history behind it
First names don't have any family history, they are just names that we liked, though apparently DD has the same name as her great great grandmother

DD's middle name is a family name of sorts (my mum's middle name and DH's grandmothers first name)..
Her first name came from a character from our favourite sci-fi tv show.
