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!

Nannyof3- Matilda Rose is the name of my DD. Love it. Good choice ;)

Most girls at the moment seem to have either Rose or May/Mai as a middle name so I would avoid both of them!

Grange Sat 05-Jan-13 18:52:37

If I like a name it wouldn't bother me at all if it was ubiquitous. Go with what you feel suits her.
Congratulations BTW

Tabitha Rae - no contest.

Seraphina
Valentina
Anouk

Those are robust to me. Congratulations smile

Right. Think I am almost sold on Theodora as a first name!

Theodora Rose?
Theodora Grace?
Theodora Bo/Beau?
Thoedora Belle?
Thordora Rae?

I have a Matilda but if I hadn't used that I really like Cordelia with nn Dilly.

Matilda Eloise

Theodore Roosevelt - nah

Tabitha - definitely gives me a twitchy nose grin

Of course she's your adorable DD, so you get to choose, but Matilda Eloise is what you should choose!!

If I have another DD she will be Elinor.

Madeline
Theora

Out of yours Theodora Rae sounds best smile

Congrats!

Lollybrolly Sun 06-Jan-13 01:13:01

Theodora Rose gets my vote

Theodora Grace.

I had never even considered this name until recently. Robbie Williams is in no way still famous enough to have an impact on people using the name imo.

I've recently warmed to Theodora a great deal.

Theodora, love it!

williaminajetfighter Sun 06-Jan-13 01:20:23

Matilda! Mt six year olds name and still love it. Goes by Tilda or Tildy.

Love Tabitha and was our second choice (so good taste OP!) but not great if you have a lisp!

I love the name Pearl and
Matilda Pearl sounds a great combo!

Or call her Winter. Cute! smile

AuntyAnna Sun 06-Jan-13 01:21:23

I like Theodora nickname Thea smile
Theodora Anne is nice do you have any family names you would like to use?
Theodore Willa, Theodora Ruby, Theodora Fay, Theodora June, Theodora Letty.

If you want some cool strong names that are quite strong mythic Greek goddess types I have known both an Elletra and a Medea. Both fabby names.

louisianablue2000 Sun 06-Jan-13 01:40:02

Love Theodora, I spent an entire episode of Graham Norton (the one with Robbie Williams on it obviously) raving about the name. A very classy and strong name.

delilah88 Sun 06-Jan-13 16:19:27

What about Tabitha Elodie?
I think that sounds good.

PepsiCoco Sun 06-Jan-13 16:20:58

Matilda. It was my name for DD but she was a DS!

booklava Sun 06-Jan-13 16:27:49

Like Tabitha, was going to have Matilda for DD1 but found Matya instead which is so unusual (don't know any other) so she is Matya Kate nn Matty
