I'm currently only 20 weeks but I've already decided on the name Bree for my baby girl, but I'm completely stuck on middle names. Any ideas? I like old and unusual names so throw anything at me grin x

Nothing even remotely linked to cheese or dairy products!

No Flora!

I think you need a name with 3 or 4 syllables. Some suggestions...

Bree Alexandra
Bree Cassandra
Bree Suzannah
Bree Gabriella
Bree Elizabeth

Are yo definitely going to spell it that way?

If so, then do you want a 'modern' variant in the middle too?

I wasn't aware there was any other spellings..?

is 'Bree' actually a real name?
I thought it was an abbreviation (a bree viation)

Bree Anne sprung to mind smile

I've heard of 'Brianna' as the full version of Bree, as well.

Irish Mumsnetters will know better, but I think that traditionally the name Brighid was also sometimes pronounced 'Breed' or 'Bree'.

In Scotland, the same name is occasionally pronounced 'Bree-jit' or 'Breej' (though many variations, eg English-style 'Bridget' and old-fashioned 'Bridie ', are also used).

But of course OP may want simply to use 'Bree' . Absolutely no criticism of that intended.

I went to school with a girl called Bree. Lovely girl. Lovely name. It's stuck with me ever since.

I would have assumed it was an imperfectly Anglicised version of Breagh
(like eg Shyvonne).

I would have assumed it was as in Bree from Desperate Housewives?
