She looks like she would suit a robust name, iykwim? I like:

Matilda
Theodora
Tabitha

Which do you prefer? Ideas for middle names welcomes! Would like a short middle name!

Thank you so much - we are struggling!

Oooh congratulations! smile

My fave is Theodora.

How about

Theodora Joy
Theodora Hope
Theodora Jane
Theodora Anne
Theodora Pearl

Maybe try out one name for a few hours and see if it suits her? Would you abbreviate Theodora?

Our robust dd is called Martha and her bf is called Matilda smile

MikeLitoris Fri 04-Jan-13 21:32:02

I love Theodora. Very nice.

MoonHare Fri 04-Jan-13 21:35:16

Tabitha! Fabulous name, although I don't see it as 'robust'.

NarcolepsyQueen Fri 04-Jan-13 21:40:19

I am slightly leaning towards Theodora at the moment. How popular is Matilda do you think? What about Bo and a middle name? Rae? She is luffly!

Matilda. Don't like Tabitha or Theodora much.

Matilda Joy
Matilda Faye
Matilda Claire
Matilda Louise
Matilda Faith
Matilda Hope
Matilda Eve
Matilda Dawn

Bo Rae would get doh a deer sung at her...

KittyBreadfan Fri 04-Jan-13 21:42:27

Matilda is just on the right side of unusual I would say, there are a few but not LOADS. I love Matilda Rae!

Congratulations btw. smile

I like Rae.

KittyBreadfan Fri 04-Jan-13 21:43:49

Theodora is nice, didn't Robbie Williams call his daughter that recently though? Could have a surge in popularity.

Matilda nn Tilly

Have a lovely friend called Rae and my goddaughter is called Tabitha so
Tabitha Rae for me.
Congrats!

MikeLitoris Fri 04-Jan-13 21:47:42

I do like Tilly.

Startail Fri 04-Jan-13 21:48:10

Congratulations

Matilda
Megan
Elizabeth
Genevieve

Those are what spring to mind as robust, but Feminine names.

SecretNutellaFix Fri 04-Jan-13 21:50:03

Theodora.

Joy
Claire
Lucy
Jane

NarcolepsyQueen Fri 04-Jan-13 21:50:19

I meant Rae or Bo as a middle name rather than first names. 'Bo Rae' made me laugh! A quick Google search says that Robbie Williams called his daughter Theodora Rose. Bugger. Do you think that will make it 2 a penny now?

Matilda

Middle name Ivy, Ida, bea,

I like Matilda.

Theodora is lovely but you might get a lot of "ooh like Robbie Williams" or "do you like Robbie Williams" etc.

AmandaPayne Fri 04-Jan-13 21:55:15

Theodora is lovely.

Theodora Anne
Theodora Alice
Theodora Hope

Not massively keen on Rae personally. May? Faye?

AmandaPayne Fri 04-Jan-13 21:56:04

No - I don't think there will be a massive surge because of Robbie Williams. You're fine.

smornintime Fri 04-Jan-13 21:57:17

Tabitha. I also like Meredith.
Middle names....Kate? Anna/Anne? May? Ellen?

GeordieCherry Fri 04-Jan-13 21:58:11

Iris
Norah
Esther
Esme
Jodie
Audrey

I like Matilda best from your list but might not get to use mine at all, so just thought I'd add them smile
