I have (almost) convinced DP on Lila if we have a girl but am struggling with middle names. He likes Amelia and Isabel which are both nice names, but I think they sound a bit odd with Lila - the way the names would run together you would pronounce an 'r' sound between them if you see what I mean? Or are they fine really and I am overthinking this? I really want DP to pick the middle name as I have sort of pushed him into choosing Lila for the first name! Any other suggestions for similar sounding names which he might like?
I like some of the names on your list paperbank, will show it to DP and see what he thinks. As I am typing this he has just made the comment that Lila is 'a bit american' so thinking about middle names might be pointless anyway! I thought I had brought him round but it appears not.
DP likes Lila Bethany so we may have a winner! He is still wavering over Lila though but has not really come up with much else - is it mean of me to push this name on him? He is agreeing to the name but only because he prefers it to the other names I chose. Not really sure what to do now, except hope for a boy!
DD is Delilah, but we sometimes call her Lila! I think a longer middle name would balance it out - Bethany is very nice.
DP was crap when it came to names too. I listed about 400 every day for both kids and he was negative about almost all of them. When he said 'it's ok, I suppose...' I knew we had a winner. I'm still peeved that he wouldn't allow Serena in any way for DD.
