...and she needs two middle names (DD has 2)

And she's going to officially have a double barralled surname, but will only use one mine

I like Ruby Aille Rose?

How do you pronounce Aille? What does your surname begin with?

I do not like Ruby and Rose together in the same name.

No, me neither. It would definitely have to be seperated with another name and even then i'm not sure. I love both names tho.

We are having Ruby-Jayne double barreled also, but probably not used as she grows. Initials RJB.

I like Ruby, i had no idea it was so popular now. Which is a bit disapointing, as i have loved it for years! It's the ONLY name my husband and i can agree on!

Aille is an Irish word meaning cliff if I remember correctly. (pronounced Ol-yeh)

Why not use Isla if you're going to pronounce it that way?

Ruby Isla Rose would be very nice, but Rose goes better if it's just a single middle name imo. Would you consider
Ruby Isla Willow
Ruby Isla Caroline
Ruby Isla Rowan
Ruby Isla Sophia
Rucy Isla Jane

Aillie will always be pronounced as "Aye-lee" following the pattern of Ailleen and Ailsa, and the usual English pronunciation of "ai" (like ail, or rain). Might you try Isla or Eillie (like Eileen) instead?

For the third middle name, I think you might like to have a name which doesn't end in "y" or the name will sound very squeaky IYSWIM

Ruby Eillie Grace
Ruby Eillie Judith
Ruby Eliza Eillie
Ruby Eillie Imogen
Ruby Eillie Rachel

There's Ayla too, a Turkish name I think. Maybe a different pronunciation though.
