I loved my choice of first name so much I let DH choose the middle name as a compromise, but now that the baby is almost here, I'm wavering so he's given me a second middle name option as I'm really not sold on the first one.

The only other thing (DH is concerned about) is that name 1 is what our 2.5 DD has been calling my bump for the past few months...

Seraphina Honey

Seraphina Amelie

(and is that how you spell Amelie??) smile

Middle names are seldom used in everyday life. So, to me they are either there to honour someone or as a chance to be a bit different and wild or to provide a useable alternative if a particularly way out first name is used.

Amelie probably fits the last reason better if you feel that Seraphina might be a bit "way out" in your enviroment/social circle, nd Honey fits better in the second reason.

Honey definitely flows better but it depends on what your middle name "driver" is.

Seraphina Amelie is beautiful.

'Honey' will be mortifying after the age of 12.

Well, Seraphina is my choice so DH wanted to get his 'favourite' in by way of a middle name. That's the only reasoning really.

I'm thinking if when she's older she really hates Seraphina, she can very easily call herself Sarah?

Snicker - that's what I'm worried about!

It depends on what kind of person she grows up to be. Of course, I hated my 'boring' name for a while and wished my parents had chosen something more unusual! (Born in the early 1980s and I fitted in with the many Jessica, Laura, Kimberley, Lucy and Katie-type names). You can't predict every eventuality. Just go with the name you both like the most smile

Love Seraphina. I don't like the two vowels sliding together that you would get with Amelie. Honey isn't the same 'type' of name as Seraphina, does that bother you?

I like Seraphina Honey. I wish that was my name and I'm in my 30s!

I like Seraphina Honey. I wouldn't give Honey as a first name (although have met a couple grown up ones), but I think it works as a quirky middle name. As a grown up it will make her sound like a Bond girl though - if you're cool with that then let hubby have his name.

I think they're both lovely actually, but that's no help. I think I would go for Amelie if the embarrassment factor is a concern but middle names aren't really used for anything so she'd find it quite easy to never use it if she hated Honey.

I like Seraphina Honey too.

Thanks, I'm still having a think about it but surprised by the reaction to Seraphina Honey... It's been very laughably received in real life!
