My friend has decided on Ruth for her soon to be DD but is seriously stuck on possible middle names, and I'm no help either.
Any ideas?

Elizabeth is out as that is her 2 yo DD's name.

Lovely name. It needs something long to complement it.

Ruth Alexandra?

Agree with Bue, I think it needs to be long.

How about, Ruth Catherine, Ruth Charlotte, Ruth Emmeline, Ruth Constance?

I have a Ruth grin. Her middle name is Ann, which I don't particularly like but it is both my and DH's mums' middle name.

I think most things go with Ruth though!

I prefer the spelling Emilia, but agree.

just make sure her initials don't spell out something unpleasant like RAT

Thanks everyone, some great ideas so far. She can't have Alice because that's my DD'S middle name wink.
Some great names to pass on though.

I'm a Ruth and my middle name is Victoria..

I'm a Ruth and at the risk of outing myself, my middle names are Kathleen May after both Grandmothers.
Definitely think more syllables is better.
