I posted this on the Baby Names board but wanted some input here as well:
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 name was Terrance which he did not like being called. He always went by Terry but I don't think I would just use that alone for a middle 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?
