I mean you could call her that as a nickname - but don't actually put it on the birth certificate. Say the whole thing aloud, without thinking about "cute" potential..!

Oh, o.k. grin

Merryn Wren is ridiculous, please don't! She'll develop a nickname once she's here.

Does Merryn Wren go together? I quite like the nic name Merry-wren. grin

I think Merryn Alice is lovely.

Merryn Rose is nice.

Thanks everyone. smile We were going to use Ivy as a middle name, but my SIL has recently had a baby girl and used that as her middle name.

My boys name is Barnaby. smile

Too many Alices definitely Merryn. Theres a rash of Alices round here it may be the new Eve.

Alice

Merryn. I always recommend it (amongst others) when people are looking for timeless, undateable names.

You can do better than Merryn May though - anything is more interesting than May in middle name terms. smile

Oooh, Merryn is lovely smile

Alice has been done to death the past 15 years or so, so I would definitely choose Merryn!

HollyGoHeavily Thu 11-Oct-12 21:34:54

Both lovely but for me Alice has the edge - it's beautiful and classic.

exoticfruits Thu 11-Oct-12 21:31:30

Definitely Alice.

My dd is Merryn! She is 21mths and everyone comments on how its unusual and lovely!

Its cornish/old english and yes means joyfull and lighthearted. It is also linked to the sea as well. Its a lovely, lovely name smile

Alice. Definitely. Classy and classic and feminine but strong.

AvonCallingBarksdale Thu 11-Oct-12 21:12:28

Both lovely names, but have always loved Alice, so I'd go for that.

WineOhWhy Thu 11-Oct-12 21:11:47

I like both names. I am guessing from your name that DD1 is Lucy. I think Alice goes better if that matters to you, but merryn is more interesting.

Merryn Alice
Merryn faith
Merryn hope

What is your boy's name?

I have a Dneice Meryn, she is adorable. It's a lovely name.
