"NTA. Give her 2 middle names and pick a completely new first name? Or if there is a way to combine your mom's name and her mom's name to create a new name, that might be cool. Orrrrr, maybe you could suggest something like Corinne (could be spelled different ways like Korrine or Karyn - this is my middle name and it's spelled Caryn) or Carley (Karlie, Karley) or Ren? Then it's kinda still got some of her mom's name in it to honor her, but also gives your daugther her OWN name, too." 💡
