Hi, all. New here! smile
Am about to have baby no.2 (aaargh) and have decided to call her Indigo, but can't decide on Elizabeth or Liz for the middle name (it was my mothers name - she was known as Liz, but I prefer the longer version)
Any thoughts?

Indigo Elizabeth sounds lovely.

I think Elizabeth which is lovely. Indigo Liz sounds like a pirate or music hall star to me...probably just me!

Agree with StellaNova. Indigo Liz does sound stagey, like a cartoon character.

Definitely Elizabeth.

Beautiful name smile

Definitely Elizabeth, lovely smile

Hahaha! grin It really does sound like a pirate name, StellaNova!! I'm glad my son is at school and not reading this over my shoulder, or he would be insisting we use that!
I do prefer Elizabeth but was worried there might be too many syllables, however, I am absolutely certain on it now.
Thank you

What about Indigo Eliza? If worried about syllables. Otherwise Elizabeth

Indigo Elizabeth as Liz as a middle name just doesn't sound right.

Lovely name, btw smile

Always worth checking: what will they spell with your DC's last initial?
