What do we think of this?

Esme is lovely, but not with Betty. I feel a longer middle name would be much better with the 2 syllable Esmesmile

How about Esme Elizabeth or Esme Bethia?

Esme Bethany, Esme Elizabeth, Esme Bettina. Not Esme Betty! Betty is a NN and a bit of a rubbish middle name. It sounds daft with Esme.

Esme Elizabeth sounds much better.

I like Esme too, but it is quite trendy in a way that would put me off.

For some reason Esme Betty sounds more like a phrase than a name.

Esme Elizabeth would be nicer. And would have the awesome initals ee

I think Esme Betty is just right!

Are you an Es-may pronouncer or Es-mee?

AliceAirhead Tue 14-Jun-11 21:47:46

Agree. Both names lovely individually but not together, I think it's the 2 syllable, near-rhyming thing...

I think it sounds too much like Ugly Betty - sorry!

Love the name Esme but doesn't sound good with Betty.

How about Esme Charlotte, Esme Jane, Esme Claire, Esme Louisa?

Esme Betty - awful, truly it is.

Esme Eli*s*abeth - classy and elegant

I don't think Betty works as a middle name.

No. Betty is not a name. It is a nickname.

If you insist of having Betty in your life, then give her the name Elizabeth Esme and call her Betty.

HTH. smile

I love it. It's very trendy though. If that's a good or bad thing for you, I don't know.

Has to be Esme Elizabeth, and then it's gorgeous.
