What does everyone think of this combination? I love Verity Clementine written down, but I'm not too sure when spoken.

Note: I pronounce Clementine Clemen-teen.

Yes its lovely I know a Verity its a nice name, thing about middle names who ever says their full names?

MarvellousMechanicalMouseOrgan Thu 20-Feb-14 20:40:31

I prefer it as a combo with the other pronunciation of Clementine, it seems to be easier to say.

HoneyandRum Thu 20-Feb-14 20:43:15

Love both names, go for it!

Davidhasselhoffstoecheese Fri 21-Feb-14 20:05:22

Violet also could be nice

I shudder at them both (sorry but you should never ask online unless you want blunt opinions).
Just use what you like. If you love 'em use 'em.

Love them both.

It's okaaaaay but bordering on the twee. Sounds like a shortlived would-be mumpreneur w-a-h-m business selling handmade unwashable keepsake baby blankets that cost far more to make than can be sold for.

It's a lovely name smile

I am not sure. It is very traditional for my taste.

Both names are nice IMO, but they don't go well together.

Verity was on my list, but dh vetoed it because he knew a Verity at school, who used to get called Ferrety.

ButICantaloupe Sat 22-Feb-14 16:55:42

Sorry, OP. They aren't a good combination IMO. It just sounds a 'bit much'.

Verity on its own is lovely, though. smile

Hewhodares Sat 22-Feb-14 17:01:49

Such beautiful names but I'm not sure together?

MarysDressSways Sun 23-Feb-14 11:22:24

I think it's lovely!

Nancy66 Sun 23-Feb-14 11:40:00

nice names but not together. Bit OTT

Theonlyoneiknow Sun 23-Feb-14 12:26:56

I really like Verity but not so keen on Clementine as the middle name. Any other middle name options?

truthvoyager Mon 24-Feb-14 01:47:52

There is also Aria. DH likes this one, but I thought it was a bit too modern. Thoughts?

truthvoyager Mon 24-Feb-14 02:34:41

Another is Maya, which is the mn of an aunt I'm very fond of.

So, instead of Verity Clementine, there could also be:

Verity Aria
Verity Maya

Please let me know what you all think of these alternatives.

IMO I think it's a bit of a mouthful. On it's own, Verity is a lovely name but in combination with Clementine, it sounds a bit pretentious. Of course, the second name rarely comes into it, so won't make a blind bit of difference unless you are thinking of hyphenating the name.

LettertoHermioneGranger Mon 24-Feb-14 02:41:25

Verity Clementine sounds very American Southern Belle to me. A bit twee. I like both names on their own, and I like Aria.

butterfliesinmytummy Mon 24-Feb-14 03:41:34

I like Verity, but then I have a Verity Elizabeth, after a great grandmother. She gets called Vivi.

SilkStalkings Mon 24-Feb-14 18:46:21

Aria is awesome. Operatic references and homage to Arya Stark, a worthy role model for any girl.

felicisbirdsong Tue 25-Feb-14 08:53:09

How about

Verity Violet
Verity Primrose
Verity Lavender

if you want to continue with an 'organic' theme?

I think that is just lovely smile
