Think we will hold onto Mia as a future name and use Rose for her middle name, I think it does flow better now I've read it out loud a few times.

Thanks all! Knew mumsnet would help, as we aren't telling anyone in real life our baby name yet!

Isla Rose is beautiful!

Isla Rose gets my vote.

Isla Rose flows so much better - I know Rose is a popular mn, but it is very pretty and you have a family reason to use it too. I'm not keen on having first and middle name both being short, 2 syllables, ending in a, I'd def hold on to Mia.

Isla rose is much nicer and theres a good reason to have rose as family connection

Keeping names is an interesting thought. I've got 3 DDs with 2 names each and so technically have used up my top 6 names for a girl. Never thought about it like that grin

What about all 3 names, OP, as another poster has said: Isla-Mia Rose.

That's a good point, this is DC1 so very possible we could use Mia in the future I guess

Isla Rose, it has a better flow. I agree you might want to keep Mia in case you have another daughter

Just cannot decide! I like each one equally and so does DP .. Thank you all so far smile

I prefer Isla Mia (my DC's surname is Harvey too!)

My niece has just been Christened Isla Rose smile Very pretty.

I like the flow of Isla Mia though. Sounds like a warm greeting in a lovely exotic language if you say it without a gap smile

Isla Rose flows better and (IMO) is prettier. smile

I much prefer Isla Rose. It flows better.

If you still like Mia, keep the name incase you have another daughter

I actually prefer

Isla Mia Rose

as Isla and Mia both end in A with the same amount of syllables so Rose puts a lovely end to it. smilesmile

Isla Mia Harvey or Isla Rose Harvey

Mia was our original baby name but we now prefer Isla as a first name but i do still like the name Mia.

Rose because baby is getting my partners surname, and Rose is my middle name so she would have a name from each of us if that makes sense!

Which do you think flows better?
