What do you think? DH won't discuss names yet so want to get some opinions before the big discussion (after 20 week scan)

The MIddle name would be Caitlin after my mum Kathleen (prefer the Irish spelling£

So Eden Caitlin x (one syllable surname)

Thoughts?

I think it's lovely - unusual and very pretty!

lizzieloubee1 Fri 09-Sep-11 13:02:51

I like it too. Nice ad easy to learn to spell, she won't be known forever as Eden X, but not so unusual that people will judge.

limetrees Fri 09-Sep-11 13:04:04

I much prefer Caitlin to Eden.

Very nice - everyone will be able to spell it, pronounce it, remember it. Has a very pretty referent too.

Eden Caitlin Jones/Smith/Carr. Lovely smile

I'd stick another middle name between Eden and Caitlin, otherwise you've got two nnnn sounds together

like Eden Mary Caitlin Jones

Kayano Fri 09-Sep-11 13:16:17

I can't do 2 middle names sad
Just a random dislike of mine...

Other family mn options include Susanna, Alice, Kathleen

SpringHeeledJack Fri 09-Sep-11 13:17:22

What letter does your last name end in?

these things matter

grin

I'm not a huge fan of either name but it's a very personal thing.

I really like the name Eden, but I've seen it cropping up a bit on here recently, if popularity matters to you. Also, isn't it the name of a TV channel?

Much prefer it to Caitlin and the other family names you've listed.

Kayano Fri 09-Sep-11 13:27:36

Last name starts with H
One syllable .... Think fog, French, cream

Cereal Fri 09-Sep-11 15:30:34

It's a place name.

I do like Edith/Edie though.

GiantUnderCrackers Fri 09-Sep-11 15:35:21

I think Eden is a lovely name.

BTW A Jewish friend of mine just named her girl Eden - in Hebrew it is apparently pronounced 'Ed-en' rather than 'Ee-den'.

I like either pronounciation.

I love the name Eden, always have since seeing it in a novel (A Dark Adapted Eye by Barbara Vine - recommended!)

Anyway, unfortunately DH doesn't like it, it has become quite popular over the last wee while and some people might turn their noses up a little at it. I love it. Like Caitlin as well although Kathleen is actually very nice too.

Desperately trying to work out one syllable surname, think fog, French, cream. It's like a cryptic crossword!

Kayano Fri 09-Sep-11 17:27:16

I thought they were awesomely easy clues lol

iskra Fri 09-Sep-11 18:15:13

Think I'm being dim!

GeetTallBird Fri 09-Sep-11 18:18:04

Eden is lovely!
Is the surname "mist"??

iskra Fri 09-Sep-11 18:21:50

Is there mist cream?

MrsOzz Fri 09-Sep-11 18:23:16

Well it begins with 'H' so it's deffo not mist!

I thought Horn. Cream horn, French horn, fog horn...

MrsOzz Fri 09-Sep-11 18:24:09

Oh and I love the name Eden. It's fresh and feminine without being frilly.

Kayano Fri 09-Sep-11 18:38:48

Mr ozz I'm going to have to name change now. Well and truly outed!

MrsOzz Fri 09-Sep-11 19:08:37

Well I didn't want to spell it out, but they were getting so confused about 'cream mist' I thought I should step in!

iskra Fri 09-Sep-11 19:25:32

Haha! Terrible at word games I'm afraid.

I like Eden grin
