Hi everyone. I would really appreciate opinions on our shortlist for if we have a girl. We're down to a choice of two first names, Lorna or Megan, and are playing around with ideas for possible middle names.

We want to use two middle names. One will be Ruth, after a family friend I adored, or Martha, a family name from DH's side. Not names we particularly like, but they have huge sentimental value. So we plan to use one of those and pick another middle name we actually love the sound of.

So Lorna/Megan + Ruth/Martha + name.
Or Lorna/Megan + name + Ruth/Martha.

Ideas so far:

Lorna Alice Martha
Lorna Alice Ruth
Lorna Juliet Martha
Lorna Juliet Ruth
Lorna Ruth Juliet
Lorna Ruth Scarlett
Lorna Violet Martha
Lorna Violet Ruth

Megan Juliet Martha
Megan Juliet Ruth
Megan Martha Alice
Megan Martha Isabel
Megan Martha Juliet
Megan Martha Ruby
Megan Martha Scarlett
Megan Martha Violet
Megan Scarlett Martha
Megan Scarlett Ruth
Megan Violet Martha
Megan Violet Ruth

Which do you like best? Would also appreciate any other suggestions for a third middle name. Thank you!

Much prefer Lorna to Megan. I like all your middle names. If I had to pick one it would be Lorna Ruth Scarlett

Lorna is nicer than Megan; not as popular and quite classic. Lorna Alice Ruth is my favourite combination.

Lorna just makes me think of a lawn. a nice grassy lawn.

Megan is a classic welsh name.

I love Lorna.
Lorna Alice Ruth
Or
Lorna Juliet Ruth

Thanks all. Not bothered about Megan being popular as we have quite an unusual surname and love the name too much to care if it's over-used.

Lorna Alice Martha - just perfect imo smile

Lorna is so much nicer than Megan as its really classic and underused.

Lorna Ruth Juliet

Amazing!

Megan is much nicer.

Lorna is 40 something frumpsville. Sorry Lornas.

Lorna Alice Martha is my favourite. I love Megan and Lorna but not keen on the idea of so many names for one child!

I like Lorna Alice Martha too. Megan is a lovely name, but I have a very dear friend called Lorna, so it's my favourite!

My personal faves from your list are
Megan Martha Juliet
and
Megan Martha Ruby

Megan not too popular these days. My lovely Meg is in a year of 180 girls and there are only 2 of them! So Megan , probably not with Martha though

Lorna Ruth Juliet.

I like Lorna Alice Ruth best, or Lorna Scarlett Ruth. They both roll of the tongue ever so nicely and have a good rhythm, too :-)

Lorna is beautiful and I like Megan but not as much.

And I'd use Ruth and Martha and have Lorna Ruth Martha smile

Megan Juliet Martha

MortifiedAdams Sat 28-Sep-13 12:27:41

I have a Meg (just Meg), who is Meg Alice, so id say Megan Alice Ruth.

Allalonenow Sat 28-Sep-13 12:30:37

Lorna Juliet Ruth is my favourite.

saintmerryweather Sat 28-Sep-13 12:31:20

peachmint Sat 28-Sep-13 14:54:43

Thanks all. Still undecided!

firawla Sat 28-Sep-13 15:00:02

Megan is much nicer than Lorna! Both mn are nice

sleepingbeautiful Sat 28-Sep-13 15:00:22

They are both nice names but I prefer Lorna. Maybe a little more chic grown up in my head than Megan. Plus I like Lorna Doone.

Lorna Ruth Scarlett - I like the v down to earth Ruth with the more adventurous Scarlett for different possible sides of your DD.
