Tell me honestly, does it sound <whispers> chavvy?
Really struggling for a middle name for baby if she's a girl. I've my heart set on Cara as the first name. DD1 has a family name as her middle name that has been passed down the generations. So if I have another girl I'd like her middle name to be meaningful too. No family names go nicely with Cara (except my own, but feel a bit egoist using it )
So as an alternative I've been trying to think of other things meaningful to DH and I. For many reasons New York City is an important place to us (don't worry, baby not concieved there ) and so was thinking maybe Liberty (as in statue of...)
DH wasn't overly keen but I'm stuck! Unless anyone has any other NYC themed suggestions?
However I used my name as my DDs middle name and thought at the time of doing it that its a bit up myself but I did it as I truly love the name and DH and others said I was being silly. Eeeeek am I infact up my own bum ahhhh too late now and I do love how my DDs name go together
The Libby I know is very middle class and a sweety. DD1's middle name my first name. I thought it was a bit egotistical too. However, it works DH liked it and me and his sister both have the same middle name and are both called after our mums. So it's sort of a tradition.
I should add that DD1 has technically already been named after me, as we both have the 'family middle name', I'm not saying people are egotistical for naming their children after themselves (as I've already done it) but think it might look odd if both my children are named after me
I'm liking Maddison, may suggest it to DH, along with Apple of course
I don't think that middle names matter hugely - in general it's the combination that's important. So for me the important consideration would be whether I thought Cara Liberty yoursurname sounded good.
Good connections/meanings would be important too, but just not the primary concern.
