She was born in July?

And it is a middle name (not that that matters!!)

Just wondering what you think?

It's pretty but a little odd, for a summer born child.

I don't think so, but then I have an August born Holly grin I think it's fine if it's a name you love, others will probably disagree!

No, not odd at all smile If you like it, use it. There are many names where the meaning is not to be taken literally.

Well, you could say it is because she was conceived in the (late) autumn?

was just about to say the same Oakmaiden!

I have a July baby with a middle name Summer, but Autumn is a lovely name.

Not at all odd imho.

I don't think it matters for a middle name.

I know an Autumn, born in April. smile

Autumn is lovely, no I don't think it matterssmile

I love Autumn, do it!

No , especially not for a middle name. I'm considering Holly for an August baby though!

I don't understand why Holly has to be a Christmas name. After all, holly is around all year. People don't get funny if your daughter Rose wasn't born in June, or Daisy wasn't a spring baby.

Autumn is a lovely name.

Not at all - I like Autumn (dh vetoed it but I like it and it's my favourite season - all the colours). I wanted Blossom as a middle name but dh didn't like that either - he's a bit more traditional. Never mind - you go for it!
