Decided on Hadley for girl baby name - now just looking for a middle name! None of the family options suit. Any ideas? smile

That's a funny one, maybe something simple in case she wants to use it in later life like Louisa?

Sorry but Hadley is 1) a surname 2) name of my aunt's dog

emilystrange2013 Sun 28-Apr-13 13:48:56

Well I never asked for opinions on the name that I carefully chose for my unborn baby but thanks anyway for pissing off a heavily pregnant woman!

Hadley Boo Radley grin

Thanks for the nice suggestions. I'm thinking a shorter name all right for the middle, maybe one more "girly" than Hadley as it can be a unisex name (or a surname, or dog's name for that matter, like a lot of first names are)

I like Hadley Ava but the initials with our surname will spell something a bit funny so don't want to do that...

Hadley is very cool, like it a lot.

Hadley Grace
Hadley Iris
Hadley Claire
Hadley Jean

Think short, classic names would be best?

Hadley rose

May or Rose both sound good.

Caladria Sun 28-Apr-13 16:49:38

I'm suggesting Cleo, zoe, aimee.

My DH is suggesting Diane.

(Well done you for standing your ground to rude posters!)

MoominsYonisAreScary Sun 28-Apr-13 16:52:29

Mae, grace or Rose all sound nice I think

Hadley Elizabeth

I think it needs a long rather than short middle name to make it more feminine.

umbrellahead Sun 28-Apr-13 17:19:56

Hadley Beatrix is gorgeous. I would also suggest

Hadley Maeve
Hadley Scout (DD's middle name, although maybe a bit harsh together)
Hadley Jade
Hadley Sarah
Hadley Olivia
Hadley Georgina
Hadley Elise

No nice amply names you can use? I love Hadley, it was on my list for imaginary DD2 but DP won't have it hmm my DD has one of those Surname/unisex/dogs names too. And it's absolutely perfect grin

ChristineDaae Sun 28-Apr-13 19:18:15

Amply - family. Stupid iPad

TigerSwallowTail Sun 28-Apr-13 19:20:02

I've no middle name suggestions sorry, but what a lovely first name smile

emilystrange2013 Sun 28-Apr-13 20:12:10

Thanks for the lovely comments thanks and for the really nice suggestions. I know Hadley is a little unusual but I didn't think it was THAT out there! The main thing is that we love it.

Incidentally, I've known dogs/cats called Paul, George and Jessie so I don't think you can really legislate for the no dog name thing grin

The family names don't really work so much, May could be similar to Mary (my gran) and Hadley is due in May. The other family name is Frances but not sure about that one.

Out of the suggestions I'm particularly liking:

Hadley Sophia
Hadley Grace
Hadley Rose
Hadley May
Hadley Eva (I really prefer the Ava spelling but the initials would be silly)
Hadley Emma
Hadley Zoe
Hadley Olivia

Hadley Elizabeth is nice too and I like Scout but agree it mightn't match..

EggInABap Sun 28-Apr-13 20:14:30

The first thing that sprung to my mind was Hadley Jo.

MsJupiterJones Mon 29-Apr-13 22:18:03

Hadley is a lovely name - Hadley Freeman is a journalist whose name I've always admired.

Hadley Victoria (or Vita)
Hadley Simone
Hadley Tana
Hadley Margaret
Hadley Ruth
Hadley Jessica

Also like Emily Strange btw!
