It depends on the names, of course. Some family names - Cecil, Edgar, Bella, Nellie - I would avoid at all costs.

My son's fn honours a friend; his first mn is a form of my birth ln; his second mn honours two friends and, with his first mn, echoes my initials.

My first daughter's fn just seemed right for her; her two mns honoured her grandmothers.

My second daughter's fn honours my mother; her first mn honours her step-grandmother; and her second mn - Anne - is mine and was my paternal grandmother's mn.

If I'd had any more children, I'd probably not have used so many honouring names, though there are some - Jean, Fraser, Robin (m) - that I could have used quite happily.
