Thanks all! I love it too. Unfortunately DH now saying "not Maeve as well, that's two granny names together!" Aargh! Choosing names is so hard!

Every marvel I know is clever and lovely. Good choice.

Definitely Maeve. A refreshing change from Mae/ May as a middle name. Love Audrey too.


Audrey Maeve is pretty much perfect imho.

Thanks all. I like the idea of different without being too "out there" as well!

Glitterspy I'm the same, it wouldn't bother me. I also like Mae, but just like, I really like Meabh/Maeve. Thats just the way I'm used to spelling it.

All my dds middle names are family names, we have a Mary, Sadie, Maggie etc (granny and great granny names grin)

I like Maeve a lot. My eldests middle name is May, along with a large percentage of her class!

I love Audrey Maeve, it's different without being hugely "out there".

I like Maeve, but I am not sure about Audrey. Sounds very old fashioned to me and just reminds me of that woman from Coronation Street.

Thanks Wigglesrock, so you'd go full on Celtic (?) spelling and everything? What about simple 'Mae'?

With Audrey, I agree these 'granny' names are massive right now, but it was my great aunt's name and she was very special in my life so it's a keeper, popular or nay...

Any other ideas to pair with Audrey?

They're lovely together, but I would spell Meave Meabh but thats just me grin Audrey is very now - I don't know if that would bother you.

Thinking of pairing it with first name 'Audrey'. Our surname is a typical Irish 'Mc' and DP and I like the idea of bringing some Irish roots to the baby's name! Saying that, he likes 'Mae' more than 'Maeve'.

Any thoughts on either and on both together?
