So we found out we are having a girl to complement our DS1. So I can now thankfully put aside boy names and focus in girls names. Middle name will be Catherine.

Currently we have narrowed it down to Rose or Nina? My son is called George. Another option is Laura.

Your thoughts?

Congratulations! Both names are beautiful but I prefer Rose to go with Catherine. DD4 is currently sleeping soundly in my arm(s) and we considered Catherine for her smile

Rose (for me). A friend has just named her dd this and its such a

Fwiw I also love Nina and had it.on the shortlist dd. I just think Rose goes better with Catherine.

I love the name Nina and Laura

George and Nina might sound a little like Georgina? Just something to consider. Nina is a fab name though.

I love the name Rose, like Laura but unlike everyone else on this thread really don't like Nina!

Laura is wonderful, and grows with a child into an adult.
Also, Lauras I know tend to be gorgeous and great company wink <polished name badge)

I love Nina. I am not sure it goes with Catherine.

DDs middle name is Rose.

I'd go with
Laura Catherine
Rose Catherine
in that order simply because Laura is due a revival.

I'm not sure flower names suit all DDs, I know a tiny beautiful Rosie who's name is perfect even as an adult.

DDs tom boy friend Daisy, I'm not convinced about.

Rose. I love how its so ageless. I know a cute little girl, a young work colleague and my gym instructor in her late 50's who all wear the name well.

I think Nina Catherine is good but Nina Rose is lovely.

IAmLouisWalsh Fri 28-Dec-12 20:59:08

I love Nina. Would have been a strong contender if I had a DD

Rosa Catherine?

All good names!

womblingalong Fri 28-Dec-12 21:00:55

Nina, love it!

Jojay Fri 28-Dec-12 21:02:24

Nina or Laura, not Rose.

MerylStrop Fri 28-Dec-12 21:03:27

My DD is called Nina, but Rose is lovely too, you can't go wrong
How do they fit with your surname?
I find Laura is a bit....boring.... sorry

serin Fri 28-Dec-12 21:06:56

Both gorgeous but not sure that Rose goes well with Catherine.

I love tassiss suggestions

Nina for godmother was called Nina and that was what I planned for my DD..... But then she arrived by another route, as it were, already named and I didn't have the chance.

Rose is nice and I think Nina Rose is lovely but if you are decided upon Catherine for the mode name then Nina (Catherine) is much nicer

Whatever she is called she will be fab.....

singinginthelifeboats Fri 28-Dec-12 21:09:36

Middle not mode...... Sorry!

KateShmate Fri 28-Dec-12 21:11:10

Nina is just unbelievably gorgeous.

How about Nina Rose Catherine 'Surname'?

Personally I don't think either names 'go' on their own, but both together is lovely

HenriettaTurkey Fri 28-Dec-12 21:11:36

Nina! But I prefer Nina Rose to Nina Catherine.

lljkk Fri 28-Dec-12 21:15:35

Nina. Rose is very nice but so overdone. Nina Catherine sounds lovely to me.

SilentMammoth Fri 28-Dec-12 22:06:27

Rose is lovely but strongly dislike Rosie, which you may not have control over. Nina fab.
