DH step-dad just died (v.suddenly) and we think it would be nice if DC had the same initials.
He was Richard Wilhelm Matthew Surname.
Now as our surname is very like one of them we can't use the name (an actually we don't really like the names enough to use it)

We already have a DD called Alicia Rae but she gets called Albie (All the time it is never Alicia).

So any ideas? Something kind of 'normal'/'traditional' but slightly different at the same time, we are kind of stuck.

Thanks

I have no idea but Alicia Rae is a lovely name btw smile

Could you post some names you like so we can get a feel for your taste in boys names?

Or might it be a girl too? Are you looking for both?

the Wilhelm mn does that mean that his step-dad was german?/german background? So maybe something german?

Wow
Italian yep we would prefer it in the order RWM
Ponty I thought it was Rhiannon/Rhian for a girl - am I wrong??

cat64 We can't use one as it is far far too like our surname and the other two we don't like enough to use really. But I think we, them and the rest of the family will know about the initials. letspick yep his parents were german - I like the idea of that. Maybe that would be better something german along with initials?

Yes it's usually rhianna with an I but my DSD is Rheanna which I like much more. Admittedly I may be a tad biased grin
