Hi Dh & I can't pick a middle name for Matilda, from searching threads we have come up with 4 we quite like & would appreciate feedback on these or alternatives.

Matilda Florence(my fave)
Matilda Charlotte
Matilda Primrose
Matilda Emily(dh fave)

I love Matilda Florence and Matilda Charlotte. They're delightful :-) I'm not crazy about Matilda Emily, the flow seems a bit off, and Primrose is nms.

I think any of the first 3 sound better than the last one (sorry to your DH ;)) because they are all 2 syllables and Matilda is 3.

NadiaWadia Thu 13-Mar-14 02:24:35

Matilda Alice? (Alice seems to come from the same time period as Matilda)

Matilda rose sounds right to me smile

thegreatgatsby101 Thu 13-Mar-14 05:42:29

I agree with Matilda Alice.

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Thu 13-Mar-14 12:43:57

I like Matilda with Emily because they both have three syllables.

My daughter is Matilda Rose smile

She would have been Matilda Alice if not Rose.

I love the name Florence, it's so beautiful.

Love Alice so much but can't have Alice as our surname ends in A, so it would be too much with Matilda endind in an "a" alsosad

Matilda Rose is gorgeous Baileys but we were already told by a family member in no uncertain terms that Rose is taken already hence how Primrose got thrown into the mix! I still love Matilda Florence, think Matilda is a strong name & Florence makes it's romantic & slightly boho!!!

BelleOfTheBorstal Thu 13-Mar-14 13:13:50

Matilda Roseanne? Or Matilda Rosa?
Matilda Posy?

BumpAndGrind Thu 13-Mar-14 13:51:48

I would just use Rose anyway.

I told MIL that she couldn't name the puppy Georgina because I was going to use it. I was pregnant at the time but never did use it.

Is the family member pregnant yet op? If not, fuck em.

My DD was nearly Matilda Florence!

DrewsWife Thu 13-Mar-14 14:10:34

Husband and I are trying to conceive and we chose Matilda Grace

SaltyGoodness Thu 13-Mar-14 17:47:18

yes, using Rose as a middle name does NOT count as stealing, who even uses the middle name in RL... I'm also not a fan of Primrose but Rose or any of the other 3 are nice

WowserBowser Thu 13-Mar-14 17:52:58

I like Matilda Florence but would you possibly be having another girl? Florence may be nice to hold back if so.

PunkAssMoFo Fri 14-Mar-14 07:29:15

I know a couple of girls called Matilda Florence & it does seem to flow well.

If you want Rose, use it. Every third child has it as a mn so they hardly have dibs on it. I do think Florence is nicer though.

Gonna throw Roslyn/Roseline, Evelyn & Beatrice into the mix

SpanielFace Fri 14-Mar-14 07:36:29

DS would have been Matilda Hope if he'd been a girl.

alita7 Fri 14-Mar-14 08:19:15

I like matilda Alice and matilda rose. Also matilda may, matilda jane, matilda Sophie, matilda cori, matilda eve, matilda Louise , matilda Emilia, matilda Kate or catherine and matilda Elsie.

seasaltbaby Fri 14-Mar-14 18:39:02

Matilda Joy?

Ali398 Sat 15-Mar-14 08:39:47

Matilda Florence is beautiful, but we do have the same taste in names ;)

slartybartfast Sat 15-Mar-14 08:40:56

i like matilda primrose

MaryWestmacott Sat 15-Mar-14 09:13:01

I agree with you from your list!

Matilda Emily sounds like it needs another middle name, it doesn't sound complete IYSWIM - and if neither you or DH love the other two, don't bother with them.

However, do you have any granny or great granny names you could put in as a middle name? If you and DH can't find one you both love, perhaps a middle name with meaning would be better as then it's not about the name, but about honouring hte person. (Hope that makes sense!)

guineapig2014 Sat 15-Mar-14 21:45:33

What about these three?
Matilda Iris
Matilda Eve
Matilda grace

HuiledOlive Mon 17-Mar-14 19:22:15

Matilda Violet? That's what my next dd will be called! DH - you listening?

Ilikepancakes Tue 18-Mar-14 20:55:44

I don't like Matilda Emily as both are long three-syllable names so it sounds to complicated. Matilda works better with a one or two syllable middle name. Your first three suggestions are all lovely, my favourite is Matilda Charlotte. I like Matilda Willow.
