If this baby is a girl we would like to name her after late grandma, Marjorie- but we're struggling to agree on a middle name.
We would want the name to be a Saints name.
Any ideas?

Marjorie is such a pretty name! Just out of interest, why do you feel she needs a middle name? If there isn't a name that's special to you that you want to use, why not just call her Marjorie surname?

I don't have a middle name and always wished I did- and DP is actually known by his middle name, so we think it is important to have that extra 'choice' there I feel.

Also surname is beyond boring and one syllable so I reckon a middle name would sound nicer anyway.

Ann, was she a saint? Goes well with Marjorie.

Marjorie Ann, yes that's a possible. Think I like Anne with an 'e' though, like Anne Shirleygrin

My Nanna was also called Marjorie!

My sister has it as a middle name. Susan and Lily are also in her name but I won't say which order.

Oh no- have I inadvertently caused a flurry of Mners naming their children Marjorie?!grin
Any other ideas?
I like Susan but not sure DP will go for that one

Marjorie Laurie Josephine, not typically saints names or anything but go together and have a certain symmetry about them when written.

From Christiana, the Latin feminine form of CHRISTIAN. This was the name of an early, possibly legendary, saint who was tormented by her pagan father. It was also borne by a 17th-century Swedish queen and patron the arts who gave up her crown in order to become a Roman Catholic.

Thanks for all these- I like Josephine and I like Christina too.

What about Anna? St. Anna was the mother of Mary, mother of Jesus. And Marjorie Anna sounds nice.
