What do you think? Middle name either Emily or Rose, DSis to Rowan and Sebastian? I had a mmc in December and like that it means healer/to heal etc. honest thoughts or other suggestions, although any other suggestions must be coupled with one of the middle names above.

I like it, it is on my girl list.

I also like Amalthea.

i thought it meant'truth' - or is that Alithea? - it sounds a bit...middle aged but it's a lovely name.

It's lovely, one of the babies in my NCT group was an Althea. I'd never heard of it before, but think it's beautiful!

Definitely heal according to google, would probably shorten to Thea which I also like.

I really like Amalthea too monster.

I have always loved Althea, and Anthea too!

As soon as I hear it I just think of this (about 30 seconds in).

I prefer Alethea, it's got a more musical sound I think. But the meaning is different, so if that's important to you might not work.

I think of your two middle name suggestions Rose works better (although it is a very common/popular middle name right now). Althea Emily is a bit of a mouthful.
