I cannot for the life of me whittle down this short list,I think it's because I need good middle names for them.
Surname is double barrelled (3 syllables in total)

We were considering using a family mn (Mabel or Nicholas) but the combos aren't grabbing us at the,inspiration needed on middle names for these first names!

First name list,Boys:

DD2 has the middle name Joy which is beautiful and under used I think, but I also think that it goes with most names so will not be any help if you do like it in whittling down the list!

Sorry grin

I'd quite like a longish middle name,
Or one with a bit of 'impact' like Hero or Hera...or...umm...Juno...but not those I don't think.

Ooh,nice list Basking love Delphine,Claude and do you pronounce Athene?

baskingseals Sun 16-Jun-13 22:11:00

I think it is Atheene. Beautiful name. Which first names are you leaning more towards?

Also thought of

Callisto and Constantine

I'm not sure,I lean towards one,and then re read the list and fall for the others again,none are sticking out,it's driving me a bit nuts confused
DP likes them all and is happy for me to choose one,so...I'm stuck!

Athene is beautiful <ponders>

Thank you Basking smile I have ages to agonise yet.
The other DC's names just jumped out quite early on..DD (4) has some issues with change and is desperate to know the baby's name,so am I,to be honest grin

UpTheFRIGGinDuff Sun 16-Jun-13 23:00:51

I'm liking Demelza...

Etta was the top of the list for ages,but someone on another thread commented,saying it was lovely but not if our surname was Carrot,and now I can't get the 'Ate-a' connotations out of my head.

Greta might replace it...
