I am expecting a boy in 10 weeks and have really struggled to think of a name I love. Favourites (that partner and I can agree on!) are Charlie or Edward (Eddie). Need some middle names please. We have a little girl (2) called Amelie Faith. So need to be sure the names sound good when said together as well. Personally I think Amelie and Edward sounds better than Amelie and Charlie. So, as usual I am rambling, what middle names would you choose for Charlie or Edward and which do you think sounds best with Amelie?

I love both names a,though prefer to give Charles or Edward as formal name and use nn forbear to day. I like ned as a nn for Edward.

My godson is charles Harry.

I like Ned as a nn for Edward too. I think Edward has a lot more scope to stand the test of time and grow with the child.

Edward sounds best and is a much nicer name. Not fond of Eddie though, sorry.

Edward Charles?

Edward Mark
Edward James
Edward Benjamin
Edward Thomas
Edward Laurence
Edward John

I think most traditional names go nicely tbh. Or for something a bit more unusual:

Edward Barnaby
Edward Jem
Edward Kit
Edward Bartholomew

Edward is definitely looking to be the favourite

BelligerentGhoul Mon 10-Jan-11 22:05:49

I LOVE Teddy as a nn for Edward - for when he's a littlie anyway.

Do you like any of the middle names so far?

clarkland Mon 10-Jan-11 22:09:21

Edward Oliver
Edward George
Edward Charles

Edward Hector
Edward Charles

Ned or Ted for short.

Charlie and Amelie is too "lee"

clarkland Mon 10-Jan-11 22:19:55

I agree it's too 'lee'

Edward sounds better than Charlie with Amelie IMO.

Edward Daniel
Edward Charles
Edward Francis
Edward William
Edward Christopher
Edward James

clarkland Mon 10-Jan-11 22:26:27

Can you think of any other boys names that go well with Amelie?

Mousesmummy Mon 10-Jan-11 22:33:37

What about Edward Clark . . . . ??

clarkland Mon 10-Jan-11 22:37:35

I laughed too! How ironic that you would suggest that!! fab

Mousesmummy Mon 10-Jan-11 22:43:30

Just thought maybe the 'clark' in your username was something special - YOUR BLOODY NAME so yes smile
I totally agree that boys names are infinitely harder than girls names!! We only had one we both agreed on (but my second fav was Edward!!)
