Hi all
DH and I love Isla for a first name, but can't think of what to have as a second name. So far I've come up with:

Isla Kate
Isla Niamh
Isla Naomi
DH likes Isla May but May is like Faye, the name of DD1

Any suggestions greatly received, preferably one or three syllables!

Sorry, could not resist blush I love the name Isla - had a friend who was named Isla growing up and she had a very positive influence on me.

As for middle names - I have never really understood why people want names that 'flow' iyswim. You don't introdunce yourself as firstname, middlename do you?

I love Isla Elizabeth though.

I love Isla, really beautiful name! Isla Rose and Isla Catherine are nice combinations I think.

My imaginary DD2 hmm is Isla or Iona Elizabeth!

I think the names lend themselves well to a longer middle name.
