I have out family name. My great Gran is Ethel Charlotte, my mom is Carol Charlotte, I am Charlotte Lesli and my daughter is Lorelai Charlotte. I love the idea of family names, I know it is very old school, but I love it. Amandalynn Nora my eldest is named after both my gran (Amanda) and her gran (Nora).
