I have been racking my brain trying to come up with a way to honor my grandmother, who was more like a mother to me. She passed away and I would love to have some way to name my daughter after her, but am stuck. My new last name will be Ventimiglio (g is silent) and everything sounds really forced.
Any ideas? My fiance really loves the name Alice, which I do love, but it doesn’t sit well with Beverly.

Could you have 2 middle names? Maybe adding something between those two names will make it flow better.

Well I second ladyartichoke if you really dont like the way Beverly Alice sounds…but honestly I think it sounds great.

I agree with @ThePrincessMaggie. I like the sound of either Beverly Alice or Alice Beverly, whichever you’d want to go with.

What about Everley instead?

Okay, so now he’s telling me that he would like a Hawaiian name for her. He liked Alice Noelani, and we both did, but I really feel strongly about this. Our boy name is Kainoa Gabriel, Gabriel being his deceased grandfathers name. Oh well, we have plenty of time to think about this.

did your grandmother have a middle name? or a nickname?
Could you use Eve or Eva? or Evelyn? or Lee?
Is there a place or something you associate with her that you could use in some way
googling it it means stream or meadow – could you use a different name with the same meaning – try some of these:

I love peppy’s idea. Everly would be a beautiful tribute.

@Mrs.Sunflower: My last name has a silent g as well – not that anyone ever knows that hah. Anyways, I really like the name Alice Beverly or vice versa. I’m sure you two could possibily work out some sort of compromise though.

I love the name Beverly for a little baby girl, so cute! I think it should have a one syllable middle name like Rose or something.

WHat was your Grandmother’s middle name? Maybe that would go better with Alice.
