    Default Honouring someone but not using their actual name..

    Not pregnant but we want more kids one day..
    I was thinking of honouring a few people in my and dp's families..

    Christine is his mum's name.. I like the names Chrisanthy (kris-ANN-thee) and Chrishelle (Krish-ell) for a girl..
    My mums name is Sandra so I thought for a boy maybe Xander..

    My grandma past away last year and her name is Leonie so maybe Leo for a boy. Or I would consider Leonie or Leona as a girls middle name..

    Dp's grandpa passed away even before dp was born so be obviously never got to meet him and his name was George.. What about Georgia for a girl?

    Are any of these combos good? Bad?

    Chrishelle Leonie
    Chrisanthy (not sure about a middle name but I love Rose but is it too flowery?)
    Georgia Leonie

    Xander Leo
    Xander Leslie ( both our maternal grandpas are named Leslie)

    Thoughts?

    Georgia Leonie, Xander Leo and Xander Leslie are fine

    But Chrishelle and Chrisanthy sound like something out of Twilight ala Renesmee.

    Xavier is nice. But the girls names sound made up, not really a fan sorry.

    Totally agree.

    Christina is another option if you really want to use a Chris name.

    It's becoming more accepted to give girls a traditional male middle name. DD3's middle name is a boy name in honour of her uncle. We didn't bother trying to turn it into a girls name.

    I don't mind Xander, Leo and George/Georgia and but I agree I'm not a fan of your girls names. I generally find if you need to explain how to pronounce it by putting it phonetically in brackets it's probably not a name I'll like but that's just me.

    I really like Leo and George for boys and would go for Alexander rather than Xander. Christian and Christopher and nice too.
    I like Georgia for a girl. Georgia Christine?
