Meaningful Yet Modern--Suggestions Needed!
My husband and I are expecting our first :) We, like many parents, want a name that honors family and has a sense of tradition or meaning behind it, yet is still modern. So far, our top picks are Colt or Abigail, however, neither feels like "it" to me.
Family names that could be incorporated or honored in some way are:
Unfortunately, none of those names are ones I would want to specifically use, but anything "inspired by" those names would work. Creativity welcome! (For example, we like Colt because Phillip means "horse lover" and Colt means "young horse") Also, my maiden name is Italian (Panaggio) and I would love to incorporate that in some way, but my married name is Glissman, so anything too Italian-sounding doesn't work well with that. We had thought of Giana for a girl's middle name (taken from the letters in Panaggio) but I'm hoping for some more suggestions.
Ideas for a meaningful yet modern name? Any suggestions are MUCH appreciated!
