Both MN are family names. I guess Alice Deborah would be a more unusual choice these days but Alice Daisy is cute.

Which would you go for>

Deborah. Far nicer than Daisy.

Both lovely smile I'd go for Daisy, but I also like Deborah.

Don't like Alice and Daisy together so Alice Deborah for me.

Ooh, Deborah is well overdue a revival, it's lovely.

Daisy is quite common in the under 10s round here (also the name of my Yorkshire Terrier)

i would be keener on Deborah Alice..for the same reasons (not the yorkshire terrier bit, but there are lots of Alices too)

Deborah. Middle names tend not to get shortened so this is a good way to use the lovely Deborah if you happened to be less keen on Debbie or Debs. Flows well together I think

Alice Deborah. Or preferably Deborah Alice smile

Alice deborah sounds lovely

I like Daisy better than Deborah but I think Deberoh sounds better with Alice - Alice Daisy combines two names that are too similar imho.

I like Daisy but not keen on Deborah. Alice is going to be our dd's name - just not sue whether to make it 1st name or nn. I'll start a thread... grin

I think Alice Daisy is lovely.

I don't think Daisy goes with Alice. Isn't there some rule about not repeating the number of syllables? I like Alice Deborah.

Alice Daisy, Deborah is awful.

Definitely Alice Daisy. Daisy is timeless but Deborah ages a person firmly into the 60s and 70s.

Deborah is a great classic name. Deborah was a prophetess in the Bible and was the only female judge in the history of Israel. The name means "bee".

Thank you; I really am warming to Alice Deborah. It does sound rather nice! DH's favourite too so would keep him quiet.
