My father passed away suddenly about a month before we became pregnant. I like the idea of honoring him via my son's middle name (if I can get DH on board), however I know that my father did not really like his own first name. His middle name was John but we already have several Johns and a Jon in the family. My DH tends to like unique middle names so I don't know if a name that hints at my father's favorite hobbies (reading and traveling) or his profession (teacher) would also work. Any thoughts?
Even though you already have several John's in the family, I wouldn't keep that from using it if you want to.
Did your father have a favorite author? Maybe you could use the author's name. What did he teach?
I can't think off the top of my head a favorite author and I think my mom may have given away most of his books unfortunately. He tended to like non-fiction. He taught math, physics and chemistry.
There was a physicist named John Dalton that was one of the original to propose the idea of atoms as the smallest building blocks. So maybe Dalton. I'll keep thinking as I have a background in chemistry.
Also, do you know what his first name will be? What letter does your last name start with and how many syllables is it?
As a side note we have been overlooking "C" names because both our names start with it however may consider for middle name.
What about your father's last name/your maiden name?
