So we're having a third baby, still early days but thinking of names whilst its still fun! The only girls name I really love and goes well with the other names is DC2's middle name. I know this is a bit weird but is it passable or really bad?
Thanks!

There are so many names in the world surely you can think of a new individual name?

Look op, your children really will not care. i never give the fact that my sister and i share names a second thought. if you love the name use it

I have this dilemma, really like the name Eliza but DD1 middle name is Elizabeth. hmm

There are thousands of names. Pick another. I don't think your DC3 would be pleased to think you couldn't be bothered - yes, I know that's not why but that's how the child might see it.

We did. We could only agree on two boys names so we blew them both on our first. And then had a second boy.

Fgs its not like youre sharing first names and will have 2 children named the same thing. your children will not give it a second thought

Why not? FIL, DBil and DP all have 2 names, but share 3 names between them - eg Jack John, John Mike, Mike Jack, and my cousins also have the same thing. They find it a little amusing but don't give a damn, its not an issue at all. Go for it.

How old is DC2? if Dc2 is still really little and not yet aware of her middle name, perhaps you could change Dc2's middle name to something else...?
