If DC3 is a girl then we have narrowed down our choices to these three names - which shall we choose? Also, please suggest a middle name to go with your favourite.

Thank you!

I love felicity is the boys ha been a girl I would have chosen that.

I would say felicity Jane...just because I haven't heard a Jane for years :-)

I agree Felicity Jane is an excellent combo but DD2 has already used up Jane!

I personally love Verity. But they are all lovely, all of a similar vein iyswim.

I like Verity and Felicity.

Penelope sounds a bit priggish.

Brankolium Tue 05-Jul-16 14:32:32

I love Verity. The other two are both nice too though.

Verity Kate

Verity Anne

Verity Sophia

I don't like Penelope ( it's my nieces name though), I just think it's a bit stuffy and I don't like the way it looks written down - it looks like it should rhyme with antelope to me!

Penny is sweet though but I prefer your other choices. Verity is very nice!

They are all lovely, but I think Verity is my favourite.

Verity Marguerite is a pretty combination, and uses a flower name a bit more unusal than Rose.

TwoAndTwoEqualsChaos Tue 05-Jul-16 18:14:29

I think they are all beautiful. Rose or Anne make good middle names after a multi-syllable first name.

nancyclancy123 Tue 05-Jul-16 20:15:54

My dd is called Felicity Ellen. Penelope and Verity were on my list too, but Felicity just stood out that little bit more for me!

hamrollplease Tue 05-Jul-16 23:22:58

Thanks for all the ideas, I think my current order of preference is
Verity
Felicity
Penelope

I think DH might be reverse order though! Will show him this thread and see if we come to an agreement.

Middle names can be problematic as surname begins with a T so vowels best avoided to prevent unfortunate three letter words! Felicity Ann definitely not a goer for example!

PopsicleBopsicle Tue 05-Jul-16 23:28:53

Penelope v v popular at the moment if that's a factor!

KoalaDownUnder Wed 06-Jul-16 03:38:43

I really can't stand Penelope. It sounds prissy and 'ploppy' all at once.

I would go for Verity, followed by Felicity.

julfin Wed 06-Jul-16 04:45:43

I like Felicity most, then Penelope. I'm not so keen on Verity, which feels too much like a pious virtue name to me.

Felicity Clare
Felicity Rachel
Felicity Kathryn
Felicity Rose?

MyFriendsCallMeOh Wed 06-Jul-16 04:48:40

I have a Verity Elizabeth, love her name!

MyFriendsCallMeOh Wed 06-Jul-16 04:49:34

And her initials are VET, she thinks it's great, she's determined to be a vet when she grows up too....

BoboBunnyH0p Wed 06-Jul-16 11:46:25

I like Felicity and Verity.
Middle names that would suit both:
Hope
Grace
Anne
Eve
