Hi all

Just posted on whether to chose Celia or Cecilia, so still up in there air there. I was going to wait until we had made a decision before asking about middle name but thought I may as well ask both now!

I want her middle name to be after one of my grandmothers.. Blythe and Emma. I immediately ruled out Emma due to the double A sound (CeliA EmmA) but a few days ago my DH had the idea of simply having Em as a middle name. Robinson is surname...So Celia/Cecilia Em Robinson? What do you think of just "Em"? I didn't like it at all at first but it is really growing on me.

I like Blythe also and had really settled on it so am not torn.

I love Em!! I actually knew a girl called Harley Em and always thought it was a bit edgy and cool. Blythe is nice too but I love Celia Em

Both family names for us so I love it. I toyed with Emmeline as a middle name which I still love. It has the added advantage of having a Hot Chocolate track to go with it grin

I don't like Em on its own. Cecilia Blythe is nice smile

It's sounds like you're not sure of her surname

"Celia ermmmmm....Robinson"

Blythe is much better.

Why not have two middle names Cecilia Blythe Emma Robinson, my dd also Cecilia has two both sctually end with a, I have never even realised this before, both Hreat grandmothers names.

I like goodie's idea above.

I don't think Em works, sorry.

Also, Cecilia is much nicer than Celia IMO.

Blythe is lovely!

Cecilia Em sounds like Cecilia M. She'll always get asked "yes but what does the M stand for" and have to explain... could get tedious

I love Blythe, in fact if we have another DD I had already decided she would be Cecily Blythe yet to convince DH but it's only a matter of time so you have very very similar tastes to me!

this might give you some inspiration

Celia/Cecilia Blythe is lovely. I think Cecily Blythe is even prettier.
Also has a nice meaning.

Ooh Cecilia Blyth (no e) was on my list if DS had been a girl! Also love Cecily Blyth, but DH less keen.

Blythe smile I can think of a few others that would be nice but since you definitely want to go for one of your grandmother's names I'd say Blythe. I think Em is nice too though!

Cecilia Blythe sounds lovely, classic but with a modern twist. Very original and stylish.

Love the name Cecilia (and she can shorten it to Celia if she wants to). Blythe for the middle name is definitely the best sounding combination.

Cecelia Emmeline?

I love Cecelia Blythe. Also Cicely Blythe and Cecily Blythe.
