For our dd2 who will be here in about 8 weeks. So yes we've got time but after 31 weeks of pregnancy we're still nowhere near decided!

Her first name will be Emilia (em-ee-lee-ya) last name also begins with E.

Need a monosyllabic middle name that's not one of these as they've all been vetoed by one of us!

Grace (only as it's dd1's middle name I love it)
Rose
Kate
Claire
Fleur
Jade
Jane
Paige
Maud
Joan
Anne
Hope
Faith
Beth
May/maye
Fay/faye
June

So yes, virtually every monosyllabic name! Help!!

Emilia Wren E
Emilia Nell E
Emilia Quinn E
Emilia Tess E

I think a 2 or 3 syllable works well also

Emilia Ivy
Emilia Saskia
Emilia Ariana

Eve? (Though you'll probably think it's too many 'E's. But good alliteration maybe?)
Bess
Pearl

It's getting difficult now. Can't you go up to 2 syllables?

MauriceMinor Sat 15-Feb-14 05:55:00

Why monosyllabic?

She'll rarely say the two names together.

Isn't it better to give her a name you like based on sound, meaning or personal significance, rather than the number of syllables it has?

NadiaWadia Sat 15-Feb-14 05:55:01

Fern? (However you spell it)
Skye

Why can't she have the name middle name as her sister? I think Emelia Grace sounds lovely smile

lilolilmanchester Sat 15-Feb-14 17:05:46

Not monosyllabic, but Louise works well with most first/surname combinations

Lovethebubbles Sat 15-Feb-14 17:11:35

Brooke?

Hi,

Can't really think of any more but I also think 2 syllables sound fine and there are so many more options!

Emilia Sophie
Emilia Charlotte

Something else with 2 syllabes not starting/ending with a vowel?

Sian
Britt
Dee
Rae
Kim
Jan
Jill/Gill
Starr

Although a lot of these are not really in at the moment, and a different style of name from Emilia.

Rae
Faith
Beth
Rayne
Bea
Beau
Jess
Niamh
Quinn
Wren

That's all I could think of

Why do people stress about middle names??

FloatingHandle Sun 16-Feb-14 06:25:48

These are nowhere near monosyllabic but I like the sound of Emilia Rosalind and Emilia Frances...

Tea1Sugar Sun 16-Feb-14 06:43:34

I really really want Rose but it's the name of dp's nightmare boss so he's vetoed it.

I also love Grace (dd1's middle name) but dp thinks dd2 should have her own. I read a recent thread on here about siblings with the same middle name - interesting!

The reason we are going for a monosyllabic one is Emilia obviously has 4 syllables and our surname has 3 so already long.

I like May but it's another 'm' sound which there'll be in first and last name so sounds bit much.

Thanks for all the suggestions I like:
Fay
Tess (is that a name in itself though or Tessa?)
Clare
Kate
But going against all our 'criteria' I love Charlotte.

Lord know why a middle name is so difficult!

Tess is lovely

we pondered ds's middle name for ages and eventually choose something we liked at the last minute just before registering.

In hindsight wish I'd chosen a name that meant something rather than one that sounded right as a middle name is very rarely used/said. Wish I'd used my maiden name (which can also be a Scottish first name) as his middle name, or my dads name so a little bit of our family was handed down to him in his name.

Can you use you mum's or maybe grans name/a maiden name?
