Think you've decided on a name? Check out where it ranks on the official list of the most popular baby names first.
I think we have decided on Elodie if yellow bump is a girl. I would like to use Ivy as a middle name (personal reasons) BUT given that most people won't know why the name Ivy has been chosen, how do you think Elodie Ivy sounds? (2 syllable surname)
It sounds very much like the phrase/song "Ebony and Ivory" tbh.I think having two names ending in y makes it quite a mouthful to say.
Too many eeeee sounds but I like both names, especially Elodie.
Surname has no eee sounds (I may be grasping at straws!!)
Was just going to say what Hula said, sorry.Pretty names by themselves though.
Like elodie a lot but the name is too 'eeeee'-ey IMO
Hadn't thought Ebony/Ivory!! Puts me off a bit more, but, given that middle names are so rarely used after the name announcement, does it matter too much how it sounds?
Or,maybe use another name in between Elodie and Ivy to break up the eee's a bit?
Elodie anne ivy?
Very pretty, I like it.
i thought Ebony and Ivory too. i love both names, but i dont think they go together, sorry.
I'm hearing what I already knew really!!! But given how little middle names are used, can I get away with it?!
I think you can get away with it. Lovely names. I was angling for Elodie (got a DS), it's a great name. And if Ivy means something to you then you should use it
Ebony and Ivory here too. They are very different, not sure that they "go" that well.
Another one that thought Ebony and Ivory I'm afraid!
If you've got personal reasons for using Ivy, I'd second breaking it up with another middle name. Elodie Elizabeth Ivy doesn't do the 'Ebony and Ivory' thing, for example.
Yep, Ebony and Ivory, started humming it the moment I read your thread title. Sorry.

Why does it matter if it makes you think Ebony and Ivory? The names won't be said together that often anyway (how many of your friends / colleagues middle names do you know?)
