Hi Amanda–Aunt Jo here. Loved your article. WE too struggled with names–except for my daughter Clare Louisa, who was named after two of my cousin best friends, thus honoring a childhood pledge. For Jed, we wanted to honor both grandfathers; ERgo Jed (for Jack GArfield) and as a middle name, Herbert (my father’s real first name. Both were alive at the time, by the way. fortunately (i guess) we weren’t aware of the no naming after living relatives dictum. For cory we chose to honor the grandmothers. Thus Cory for Clae, my mother and Alexander for Anne GArfield, the paternal grandmother. Both of them were still alive, too! Mea culpa . Well anyway, we meant well, an so far no terrible curse has fallen on them. Lots of love to all three of you. By the way, we loved Lenard a lot , too.
