November 10th is National Forget-Me-Not Day. On this day in November, it is especially important to remember family, friends, and loved ones. Remember to always stay in touch with those you love, you would not want them to forget you! Today, remember a loved one who is no longer with you and think of the good times that you had that live strong in memory.
If you are expecting a child, naming them after a loved one is not only an honor but a way to never let your child forget about someone held very close to your heart. Many times this name is best suited as a middle name, giving the parent the ability to choose a first name as well. Shortened versions of longer, old fashioned names work well, too. Ex: Freddy might be more appealing than Frederick and Bella might be a better fit than Isabella.
Here are a few names for your child that people are sure to remember:
Arabella (Latin): Answer to a prayer; beauty
Giuliani (Latin): Youthful; Jove’s love
Lara (Russian): Lovely
Ophelia (Greek): Helpful woman; Character from Shakespeare’s Hamlet
