I am due my first baby on Sunday and suddenly realising how soon we're going to have to pick a name. We've had three that we have liked for a while but I wondered what your thoughts are. And if you have any other suggestions...?

Alice Elinor
Rose Margaret
Orla May

(all of the middle names are family names, but I think each one sounds best with the first name!)

Elinor is hardly an unconventional spelling; Jane Austen used it for goodness sake.

Another vote for Alice Elinor.

Alice Elinor - Elinor is my preferred spelling tbh and I think Eleanor looks wrong (but I am a Janeite so that may have something to do with it).

Orla Elinor! By a mile. Though I like your other choices very much too smile

I love Orla May. I think Orla Rose also sounds lovely. Second choice would be Alice Elinor.
