We have just found out that baby number 3 is a girl! Happy and excited, but major problem, we cant think of any names!!! Both our DD's have a middle name after a family member (one from each side) and now not sure which side to go with next OR to give her my name (Natalie) as middle name, also cant think of any first names. Dont want to have matching first inititals, so L, C and N are off the cards...

Can anyone suggest names begining with S, R or J? I dont know why, just drawn to those letters. Thanks for any input x

Rachel, Rebecca, Ruby
Julia/et, Josephine/Josie

Is there any name that is on both sides you can use?

Thanks everyone! Great suggestions, am now jotting some down and will be showing DP later.

There isn't a name that carries on both sides. Am not sure if I want Natalie as a middle name after the initial excited agreement that we would use it. Argh, still have 16 weeks to decide.

Anyone else got names to add?

Congratulations Wigglesrock on DD number 3 x

Thank you, she's absolutely gorgeous, a real joy, by the way I really like Natalie, it was a sneaky favourite on both mine and dh list grin

what are your other dds names?

Haha, lurking with interest on the middle name dilemma.

I have two DD's with lovely middle names from mine and DH paternal grandmothers.

But the other two of our grandmother's names were.....Barbara and...Blodwyn!

Couldn't use them, really couldn't, so have no idea what middle name we'd go for for a 3rd DD.

BIG congratulations, by the way grin

They were some of my favourites. Jemima was vetoed by DP, Seren did not suit a baby who took 4 days to deliver and Romilly is our gorgeous, wriggly 15 week old DD.

I always say middle names are the ones with stories. They're either nods to family members or the name you love but don't quite dare to use as a first name...why not go that route now you have honoured both your families?

Gah! JEnnifer.

I like Natalie as a name, it would be ok to use as a middle name imo.

so with that in mind:
S - Selina, Saskia
R - Rowena, Rose
J - Juliana, Juliet, Jenna

Sorry, lacking in imagination this morning! (it's morning here)

S - Sophia, Siobhan, Stephanie, Sally, Susannah
R - Rachel, Rosalie, Rosemary, Rowena
J - Julia, Jayne, Josephine

I found those letters quite difficult for some reason.
