Middle name to honor family vs. OR vs. Give kids their own name???

What do you think is better...to give kids a middle name that honors family OR giving them a name that is all their own??? I can’t decide. I love the idea of using family names and giving kids a sense of belonging and history, but I also think it’s nice when kids have a name that they don’t share with anyone. What do you think???

I personally don’t like it when people use the exact same names, like with JRs. I think kids should have thier own name, but I think it is okay to use the middle name after someone. That way they have the history but aren’t called the same thing.

I think it is great to honor family, but a nn is a great way to give your child his/her own name. For example, my daughter is named Katherine, after my MIL. My MIL goes by Kathy and my daughter goes by Kate. I think we get the best of both worlds. Good luck!
