Thomas James and Catalina Maria Magdalena...

I'd definitely go with Tamsin for a girl (contracted form of Thomasina), because it's one of my favorite names to begin with. It has the added bonus of being (imo) a quintessentially British name, and he's definitely proud of being from the UK.

A boy's name honoring me is definitely tougher, because I feel like Catherine and Magdalene variants are completely feminine. That leaves me with Marius (sketchily related to Maria), or a name that means black (relating to my surname, "of black" in a Romance language).

So:

Tamsin Hero and Marius Valentine.

Tamsin after Thomas, Hero because he's completing a degree in classics.

Marius after Maria, Valentine after the patron saint of epilepsy (which affects me).
