Decided on Hadley for girl baby name - now just looking for a middle name! None of the family options suit. Any ideas? smile

I love Hadley! It's our second choice for baby on the way, after Margot.
We're thinking Hadley Mae Florence.

The two Hadleys I know are amazing women, great choice OP.

The first mn that came to mind was Jane, but I also really like the PP suggestions of Kate and Maeve.

Now usually I detest surnames as first names but I might actually make an exception for Hadley... Just because it was the name of Ernest Hemmingway's first wife. I'd go with something simple for a middle name eg. Claire, Rose (even though it's overused as a middle name), Anna etc.

Hi, just wondering what you wound up naming you Hadley. I had a Hadley last September (Hadley Joanna, or Hadley Jo), and I came across this and thought I would just go through it for kicks, I was really surprised at how many of the middle names I had picked out were on here!! Crazy. Anways congrats on your wee Miss H!

Hadley is a lovely name - Hadley Freeman is a journalist whose name I've always admired.

Hadley Victoria (or Vita)
Hadley Simone
Hadley Tana
Hadley Margaret
Hadley Ruth
Hadley Jessica

Also like Emily Strange btw!

The first thing that sprung to my mind was Hadley Jo.

Thanks for the lovely comments thanks and for the really nice suggestions. I know Hadley is a little unusual but I didn't think it was THAT out there! The main thing is that we love it.

Incidentally, I've known dogs/cats called Paul, George and Jessie so I don't think you can really legislate for the no dog name thing grin

The family names don't really work so much, May could be similar to Mary (my gran) and Hadley is due in May. The other family name is Frances but not sure about that one.

Out of the suggestions I'm particularly liking:

Hadley Sophia
Hadley Grace
Hadley Rose
Hadley May
Hadley Eva (I really prefer the Ava spelling but the initials would be silly)
Hadley Emma
Hadley Zoe
Hadley Olivia

Hadley Elizabeth is nice too and I like Scout but agree it mightn't match..

I've no middle name suggestions sorry, but what a lovely first name smile

Amply - family. Stupid iPad

ChristineDaae Sun 28-Apr-13 19:17:59

No nice amply names you can use? I love Hadley, it was on my list for imaginary DD2 but DP won't have it hmm my DD has one of those Surname/unisex/dogs names too. And it's absolutely perfect grin

Hadley Beatrix is gorgeous. I would also suggest

Hadley Maeve
Hadley Scout (DD's middle name, although maybe a bit harsh together)
Hadley Jade
Hadley Sarah
Hadley Olivia
Hadley Georgina
Hadley Elise

I think it needs a long rather than short middle name to make it more feminine.

BeQuicksieorBeDead Sun 28-Apr-13 17:05:47

What a lovely and unusual name.... I have an unusual name too and I have always loved it.

Hadley Kay
Hadley Belle
Hadley May
Hadley Blue
Hadley Faye
