She looks like she would suit a robust name, iykwim? I like:


Which do you prefer? Ideas for middle names welcomes! Would like a short middle name!

Thank you so much - we are struggling!

Oooh congratulations! smile

My fave is Theodora.

How about

Theodora Joy
Theodora Hope
Theodora Jane
Theodora Anne
Theodora Pearl

Maybe try out one name for a few hours and see if it suits her? Would you abbreviate Theodora?

Our robust dd is called Martha and her bf is called Matilda smile

I love Theodora. Very nice.

MoonHare Fri 04-Jan-13 21:35:16

Tabitha! Fabulous name, although I don't see it as 'robust'.

NarcolepsyQueen Fri 04-Jan-13 21:40:19

I am slightly leaning towards Theodora at the moment. How popular is Matilda do you think? What about Bo and a middle name? Rae? She is luffly!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Fri 04-Jan-13 21:42:15

Matilda. Don't like Tabitha or Theodora much.

Matilda Joy
Matilda Faye
Matilda Claire
Matilda Louise

Have a lovely friend called Rae and my goddaughter is called Tabitha so
Tabitha Rae for me.

MikeLitoris Fri 04-Jan-13 21:47:42

I do like Tilly.

Those are what spring to mind as robust, but Feminine names.

I meant Rae or Bo as a middle name rather than first names. 'Bo Rae' made me laugh! A quick Google search says that Robbie Williams called his daughter Theodora Rose. Bugger. Do you think that will make it 2 a penny now?

Middle name Ivy, Ida, bea,

I like Matilda.

Theodora is lovely but you might get a lot of "ooh like Robbie Williams" or "do you like Robbie Williams" etc.

AmandaPayne Fri 04-Jan-13 21:55:15

Theodora is lovely.

Theodora Anne
Theodora Alice
Theodora Hope

Not massively keen on Rae personally. May? Faye?

AmandaPayne Fri 04-Jan-13 21:56:04

No - I don't think there will be a massive surge because of Robbie Williams. You're fine.

smornintime Fri 04-Jan-13 21:57:17

Tabitha. I also like Meredith.
Middle names....Kate? Anna/Anne? May? Ellen?

GeordieCherry Fri 04-Jan-13 21:58:11


I like Matilda best from your list but might not get to use mine at all, so just thought I'd add them smile
