Don't wish to out myself so am trying to explain this situation with equivalent names rather than the real ones...

Is it narcissistic to name my DD with a variant of my own name? For example, if I were named Eleanor and I named my daughter Helen.

I know a little girl whose name is a variant of her mother's which is a variant of the maternal grandmother's.

It's unusual, for sure, but very sweet.

I've always thought Nigel and Nigella Lawson were an odd combination.

I don't like it. Better for dc to have their own identity.

My DH is called a very similar name to one of my face girls names like Stephen and Stephanie type close. I'm not using it sad
