    not Christina, just Tina.It’s my mom’s name. since we Plan to TTC in the next year or two we’ve been kicking names around quite a bit and while i’ve been settled on Jolene Marie (marie is mom’s and sis1′s MN) for a long time now if my mother would let me use her 1st name(in either the 1st or MN position) i’d love to. problem is she hates it. i was thinking maybe if i could get the right name combo maybe she’d let me.

    any ideas or is Tina just unusuable? she’s already shot down Tina Jolene and Tina Lynn (lynnis sis2′s MN)

    I’m not sure about any ideas for combos, but do you think she’d be more open to a “tina” name? Like Valentina? It might spruce up Tina a bit. There’s also Florentina, Christina, Clementina, Augustina, Celestina, Justina, Leontina, etc. I don’t know if any of them appeal, but I think the sentiment’s still there, and she might like having a more exciting name that still honors her? Just an idea.

    I’m with Ashley. Tina just seems extremely dated to me and, well, just over all a not very fun name. I have a friend named Christina and she’s made my very fond of the name. Also Valentina is a GP for me.

    i dont care for it. but i think its perfectly usable. some people might consider it outdated. but im getting annoyed that many great names seem out dated. its good not to have a name in the current top 5.. tina marie is pretty or tina jolene is wonderful

    I think Tina’s really pretty as a nickname, but like the others, I find it a little outdated and flat if it’s not a nickname. I don’t think I’ve ever met one under the age of 40, but it’s a pretty name, and Christina is common enough that I’m sure there are little Tina’s out there…

    I think Tina Marie sounds better better than Tina Lynn or Tina Jolene, but I like both Lynn and Jolene better than Marie as a middle name, honestly. But would Tina Marie be an option? Or are there more family names you’d be willing to use?

    I think Tina would be fine as a middle name. Plenty of people have more “dated” middle names since family names are often used in that spot. I agree that Christina would be easier to use if she’d be open to you using that in her honor instead though.

    the “Tina” names are pretty but i’d never use them.

    all the good family names are taken, except Lula (hubby put his foot down on that one a long time ago.:[ ) amd Sarah, neither of which would go well with Tina. i suggested that we could go with Tina Lynn or Tina Jolene and just call the hypothetical child by her middle name but mom seems dead set against it. she just REALLY doesnt like her name. she keeps saying “But it’s just sooo ugly!”

    She said today that she’d really like it if i used my name. She thinks we should go with Amy Jolene, Myriah Jolene or the original Jolene Marie.

    Honestly, if she really doesn’t want you to name after her, I would really consider honoring that wish. My beloved grandpa felt the same way about his name. If she doesn’t want you to do it and it’s hard to work with, then just go with Jolene Marie. Myriah Jolene is pretty too. She will still be honored knowing that you wanted to honor her in that way! :)
