What do people think of this?

And what middle name would up put with it (something short and classic)?

We we're thinking:

Miriam Ann
Miriam Grace
Miriam Emily
Miriam Rachel
Miriam Sarah

Thanks!

I really like it. Mim is a cute nickname too. It's on my list but it is a colleagues name which might be a bit weird...

HenriettaTurkey Sun 08-Dec-13 10:32:53

We were talking about Mim as a nickname too!

HenriettaTurkey Sun 08-Dec-13 10:34:01

Just read my original post 'would up put' clearly should read 'would you put'.

Sorry grin

Love It.

Under used and very pretty.

Lovely name, and Mim is a fab NN.

I know a Mirren and. Murren but no-one called Miriam :-)

RutaSkadi Sun 08-Dec-13 15:07:48

Miriam's lovely, she could be a Mimi.

Thank you all for your really positive comments! What do you think about the middle names?

Miriam is great. IMO single syllable middle names would work best and prefer Ann to Grace from your list

Miriam is my great grandmothers name, she was Persian Jewish. Beautiful name.

Love the name Miriam. I know one who is about 5 and is just adorable and smart and funny. Middle name wise I think it depends on the surname. If it's a one syllable surname then I'd go for a 2 syllable middle name as the rhythm flows better. If 2 syllable surname then I'd recommend a 1 syllable middle.

I LOVE Miriam. Wanted to use it for DD but DH doesn't like it :-(

Go for it, the world needs more Miriams!

ZingSweetPea Mon 09-Dec-13 03:48:18

we have a niece who is Miriam.

it's a lovely name and because of her role in Moses' life as a baby I associate the name with someone loving, caring and smart

cashmiriana Mon 09-Dec-13 14:21:43

We have a Miriam in the family. It's a beautiful name (and she's a beautiful, funny kid.)
In fact I was gutted when her mum used it. I wanted it for my DD2!

I love it. Didn't occur for my DD but a friend has one. I agree short and classic for the middle name and I like Ann best of your options but I don't dislike any of them. Although said together you do kind of get Miri-uh-man but I don't think that matters smile

glorious Mon 09-Dec-13 16:10:15

Friend's is Miriam Helen btw.

SS3J Mon 09-Dec-13 18:02:00

I really like it. I would go with Miriam Grace from your list.

TallulahBetty Mon 09-Dec-13 18:09:44

In my top 5 most disliked names. Sorry, you did ask sad

TallulahBetty Mon 09-Dec-13 18:12:09

Posted too soon. I would suggest Marianne?

HenriettaTurkey Mon 09-Dec-13 19:39:23

Thank you all for your responses - positive or negative it's great to have feedback.

Glorious, that's my favourite too, but I was wondering about the 'man' sound.

Our surname is 2 syllables.

HenriettaTurkey Mon 09-Dec-13 19:40:07

Oh, and Tallulah, I think Marianne is lovely too, but sadly DH isn't keen.

Miriam is great! Not enough little Miriams around.

Only muddle name I dislike from your list is Emily, think Miriamemily is a bit of a tongue twister!

I secretly like Mirabelle too. Maybe Miriam Belle? smile

HenriettaTurkey Mon 09-Dec-13 20:05:25

I think you're right about Miriam Emily.

Hadn't considered Mirabelle. Isn't it a plum?

lottiegarbanzo Mon 09-Dec-13 20:44:42

I secretly like Mirabelle too! Mirabel is an airport in Montreal though.

As for your middle name, I think something starting with a consonant is best, so they don't run into each other. Agree which one depends how long your surname is.

Of your ideas, I think Grace sounds the best. Rachel and Sarah make very biblical names.

Miriam Amelia is a pretty combination of you like Emily
