Long back story sorry, So my dh and I are ttc and we of course off and on discuss names, we have several we are in love with! however, recently decided to also search for his biological father of which he never really knew, sadly to discover he passed away a couple years ago and has been looking for dh for 30 years, the family has welcomed us both and we are learning amazing things about the amazing man that was his father, we always thought we might honor his father and dh by naming a baby
but we know now too that DH is named after his grandfather first and middle name, I am tempted to honor this tradition and this man by using the name
while a great strong classic name and I am partial and kinda love the nn Howie I am a little apprehensive because it wont truly go in our sibset the way my others favorites will. we currently have Zachariah Vincent and Melody Grace So I am torn between something a little more out of the box or going completely towards classic and honor the tradition that his father did by naming a son after his grandfather like Dh was.
Also I should mention while being cryptic but our last name starts with H and if we use howard he will have the same exact name as a famous filmmaker. and I am unsure if that also should detour me.
I love that you want to honour your DH's father. However, I also think it is important that you love your babies name & that it also fits your sibset. Personally, out of all the names you mentioned, I like Samuel Howard best as a name & in your sibset.
I did not know about the film maker but I did look it up. If it's what I think it is, then I think it would be fine. If it were a more unusual combo, then it might be a problem.
While I think Liam goes better with your other children's names, Howard nn Howie would not feel out of place to me. You could also do Samuel Howard instead of Howard Samuel. I favor Samuel a little more than Liam and Howard but I think it's nice you want to honor your husband's father.
