Romy Winter Martha or Rune Wolf Meinhardt .
Will you let us know what you choose?

ShoutyHamster Mon 05-Sep-11 13:37:18

Rowan or Robin and Romy - any of the middle names are good combos.


Don't forget that the whole name will be very rarely used. I think you might be focusing on that a bit too much - as in, to 99% of people they will just be Rowan, Romy etc. So concentrate most on the first name you love, then just let the rest follow. I have to say I'm not sold on any of the boy first names - Rory and Ross are dull, and Rune - eeek!

What about Ronan, Rhodri, Richard (or Rhisiart in Welsh?) Rafe?

poppydaisy Mon 05-Sep-11 14:01:34

I like Robin and Rune from your boys list and Rowena from the girls list.

I agree, focus on the first name. The others are rarely used anyway.

ohjusthitmealready Mon 05-Sep-11 14:02:35

Will do tummy

shouty fair point ta. Richard (Rhisiart) we don't want to use. the initials are after someone and he was Richard so don't want that. Rafe I don't like. Rhodri DH has just made a face so not that one. Ronan I really like but it is too like what I am known as, which we wouldn't like.

I love Ross and Romy, Rowena is nice toosmile

RueyBoey Mon 05-Sep-11 15:20:54

I like Romy for a girl. (though Rowena is fine)
As middle names goes I like the W ones (Wednesday included actually I surprised myself). The M ones are alright - nothing setting me alight and I think you could switch the M names around.
So in order
Romy Wednesday Mina /Romy Wednesday Mae sound good too.
Romy Winter Martha
Rowena Wednesday Mae
Rowena Willow Margarete

Rune for a boy I like. I like the W mn apart from Wolfric and M ones don't like Myles.
So the best ones are, in order
Rune Wolf Meinhardt
Rune Waldo Markus
Rune Wolf Milo

I really wouldnt use Waldo for a middle name! It sounds like someone who is a bit daft. I love Wolf or Wolfie/wolfric though!

Romy is so pretty. And lovely with Winter Martha, both fab names

Ross or Rory are best from Boys names.

Imnotdarrellrivers Mon 05-Sep-11 19:13:26

Rune Waldo Markus - Waldo I don't like
Ross Wolfric Meinhard - Wolf instead of Wolfric then I like
Rowan Wilhelm Myles - Myles I don't like
Rune Wolf Milo - I like
Rune Wolf Meinhardt - Really Like
Robin Waldo Markus - I have a female cousin called Robin, so it screams girl for me
Rory Wilhelm Myles - Really don't like

Rowena Wednesday Mae - I really like this
Rowena Wednesday Millie - The Millie I don't like so no
Romy Winter Martha - I really like
Rowena Willow Margarete - I likke
Romy Wednesday Mina - Doesn't fit somehow
Rowena Winter Mila - I like this one

Wednesday reminds me of Addams family, but somehow maybe it works with the other ones.

Good Luck xx

Boys wise I like Rune or Ross (depends on what you want to go for 'feeling' wise) mn wise don't like Wolfric or Wilhelm or Markus and Myles

Girls wise I like either Rowena or Romy
Don't know if I can get my head around Wednesday in RL But I really love Winter. Willow is fine. Mae I like (like how your DD1 has Rae and they would be spelt the same) and the others I like too just not Martha.

ragged Mon 05-Sep-11 19:39:37

Rune Wolf Myles

Romy Winter Mae

I really don't like Rowena.

letsgorunning Mon 05-Sep-11 19:52:43

Well I love Rune but would you pronounce it the scandinavian way or the english way??

Romy I really like

Most of your middle names are nice/fine esp Wolf and Wednesday and Winter

Mollydoggerson Mon 05-Sep-11 19:59:20

Rune will be the ruination of him.

I have a Rowan so obviously I like that one. I also like Rowan for a girl.

How about Romy Willow Marguerita for a girl and Rudi Wolf Meinhart for a boy.

ohjusthitmealready Tue 06-Sep-11 15:57:04

running I knew it was a scandinavian name but didn't know it was pronounced differently to the english way (Roon). How would it be pronounced the scaninavian way??

glittershoes Tue 06-Sep-11 17:06:37

I love Romy for a girl but would combine it with Winter and May or Millie. I also love Ramona (which I think has German origins) for a girl with Romy as a nickname. What about Willow as the W?

For a boy I like Robin best for the first name, followed by Rory then Rowan, not keen on the others though. Love Wolf for the first middle and then would go for Milo.

So, with the ones I think flow best in bold....

Romy Winter May
Romy Willow May
Romy Winter Millie
Romy Willow Millie
Ramona Winter Millie
Ramona Winter May
Ramona Willow May
Ramona Willow Millie

Robin Wolf Milo
Rory Wolf Milo
Rowan Wolf Milo

Hope it helps!

I'm sure you already know this...but Rowan is also a girls name. So you could still use it?!?!

I know 3 girls called Rowan and 2 boys called Rohan I think the Rohan spelling would be better for a boy imo.

But for me...

Rory and Romy

Not really keen on your choice of middle names esp Wednesday hmm but then i'm not at all brave and very boring when it comes to names blush LOVE Wolf that's super cool.

Good luck xx

letsgorunning Tue 06-Sep-11 19:46:45

Well hitme the danish way is Roon-eh (that is the best way I can explain it)
It's DH's name (being danish he says it like that) but now when people read it here he is always correcting them and they think he is bonkers. But it is also said ROON in sweden and other palces in scandanivian etc. So both are correct. (I would say go for Roon - more people say it that way and I always think it sounds like DH has a girls name the way he says it)

mathanxiety Tue 06-Sep-11 19:52:30

Rory Wilhelm Myles is the best of the boy names imo.
(Rune is too close to 'rube' meaning dumbass).

Romy Winter Martha
or Rowena Willow Margarete
Both of these girl combinations would be lovely. (I would use Margarete instead of Martha though)

Love Robin or Rowan for a boy. Waldo and Wolf are dreadful, sorry - and Rune sounds like somebody from a fantasy novel.

Only like Martha and Margaret from the girls' list but if you HAVE to have a W middle name, Willow is far, far better than the others imho.
