Do people really need the names May, Rose or Grace suggested to them when asking for middle name inspiration?

95% of girls from this generation have the middle name May, Rose or Grace - they are so over-used it's untrue. Everybody knows these names - surely it's time to think outside the box even a tiny bit.

Karenza, for instance, is fabulous. It's different and refreshing, and timeless.

Apologies to anyone I've offended, I'm just so over these middle names!!

Sorry Don I love May, though admittedly I was intending to use it more than 20 years ago well before it became popular. I think the OP liked it too (not offended BTW).

Yeah, it seem the OP did!

I just find it hilarious when people come on and suggest those names specifically for middle names - and actually even more hilarious when OPs like them - are there really people left in the world that need Rose/May/Grace suggested to them?! grin

My Ruby is Ruby Olive, after her great-great Granny.

My Nan was Ruby May. It really gets to me when people go on about May/Rose etc being of this generation.

They are names that have ALWAYS been about. Get over it.

FWIW I like Ruby Faye or Ruby Rose.

I'm not suggesting they are necessarily are of this generation, although they are undoubtedly going through a massive popularity surge - hardly anyone of our generation has those middle names (a lot of Louises and Janes for us).

My point was that if someone goes to the trouble of starting a thread in baby names looking for middle name suggestions, suggesting Rose/May/Grace is like suggesting the sky is either blue or white. They kind of go without saying.

How about no middle name.... Thats unusual!!!!!

I like Ruby Lynn or Ruby Jade. I personally think Karenza is too long a middle name for Ruby (although I do love the name itself).

I also liked Ruby May but as another poster mentioned it is very common for a middle name at the moment
