so although i'm open to other options, jemima seems to be the girls name i keep going back to although i am finding it hard to find the "right" middle name to go with it. first daughter is Beatrice Rose, when i named her i was planning on using the middle name rose for all my daughters so if i had more than one i could say i had a "bunch of roses". however, now i'm a bit older and wiser i can see that is a bit cheesy and unimaginative lol. my ideas so far are:
Jemima Florence
Jemima Violet
Jemima Catherine
Jemima Olive
Jemima Lucy
Jemima Sophie (not sure if this will go with out surname)
Jemima Pearl
our surname is 2 syllables and begins with "s" and has an "a" sound at the end. any idea would be great smile thank you x

Helpful Eeyore... wink

I think your Rose idea, ok might be a bit cheesy, but also quite cute in a ''we're not taking ourselves too seriously'' way. Although, I dont think Jemima Rose sounds nearly as good as some as you have on your list... specifically Jemima Pearl. How about Jemima Jane? I love the sound of that...

Jemima Lily

I was going to say the same as peanutgallery except Jemima Violet out of your choices as Violet is a flower.

Beautiful name choice love Jemima

Love Jemima Lily!

I like Jemima Lucy from your list; it goes well with Beatrice Rose. Don't like Jemima Florence; both good names but not together.

I like all the middle names on your list smile I think Jemima Catherine or Jemima Pearl would fit very well with your surname.

Jemima Florence - Florence is nice, but the "ce" would run into the S of your surname
Jemima Violet - I like Violet but it's a bit rhymey with Jemima - too much "i" sound
Jemima Catherine - like, flows well and would go with surname
Jemima Olive - doesn't flow so well as it runs together "Jemima Rolliv".
Jemima Lucy - like, flows quite well but "cy" s sound too much with S surname?
Jemima Sophie - like
Jemima Pearl - like

Jemima Iris?

naughtaless Sat 03-Sep-11 14:47:08

I love the idea of flower middle names ie, Iris, Violet,
but I also like Jemima Posy

I too like the sound of `Jemima Jane`, plus Jane is not much used these days

overmydeadbody Sat 03-Sep-11 16:05:32

Oooh yes, Jemima Jane is a good one.

plinkplonk Sat 03-Sep-11 18:17:02

I was going to say Jemima Jane too!

MummysLittleSunbeams Sat 03-Sep-11 18:34:58

I was also going to suggest a flower name as in 'bunch of flowers....

Jemima Blossom
Jemima Lilac
Jemima Jasmine
Jemima Lily
Jemima Pansy
Jemima Saffron
Jemima Fleur

Honestly don't do the Rose thing, just DON'T!!

thanks everyone. i do like Jemima Jane but too many flippin women in our families have that as a middle name (i know, i'm picky). i think the current favourite is Jemima Pearl! (after Jemima Puddleduck obviously)
