How did you pick your kids' name(s)?

@alex We picked ours by total spitballing off the top of our heads and seeing what we liked. Middle name is a family name, though.

@alex Asked a friend for names. We wanted an Indian-ish name to give home some sort of connection to his heritage on mom’s side. She found Zayn, I decided that his last name would be enough of a disaster to learn to spell so I went with the Americanized Zane. Middle name is mom’s maiden name.

We've got a mix. Three of ours have a biblical first name and the name of an author as middle names. We have a nature middle name for one, one has first and middle literary names. No family names though.
