Surname had two syllables and we can't decide between Elizabeth or Grace as a middle name. Thoughts please!

Whenwillwe3meetagain Mon 03-Nov-14 20:00:54

This is for first dc due in a couple of weeks grin

My first thought was Matilda but of the two you have listed id say Elizabeth.

I was thinking Elizabeth before I opened your thread properly and saw your suggestions.

Love Matilda too!

Lyla Jayne came to mind although I don't like the name Jayne which is strange.

lila grace is kate moss' daughter.

Grace. It flows better.

Another one who opened thread thinking Grace!

Whenwillwe3meetagain Mon 03-Nov-14 20:45:28

Not a fan of Moss but hopefully Lyra is a little bit different from Lila and her daughter must be a teenager now?

Love that people are coming onto the thread with my choices in their head already.

Silver tongue ? wink
I think Grace is lovely, in fact I think a lot of one syllable names would go - Faye, Paige, Faith etc

I don't like it when first name ends in a vowel and mn starts in a vowel, so if say Grace as it flows better.

Was my dd1 not Layla, Lyra would be on my list for baby number 2. The middle names we considered for Lyra (when naming dd1) were Grace, Celeste, Jade.

CPtart Mon 03-Nov-14 20:57:51

Grace flows much better although I prefer the name Elizabeth.

Lyra Faye, Lyra Catherine also nice.

HattyMonkey Mon 03-Nov-14 21:03:16

First thoughts before opening were Grace or Elizabeth both my dd's middle names so cannot choose between. How about


HattyMonkey Mon 03-Nov-14 21:05:42

Cpart love Lyra Catherine

I don't think Elizabeth goes- it feels like a mouthful. Lyra Grace is better but it still feels like there is a full stop in it when you say it. Lyra.Grace

I like Lyra Lucille. No full stop.

RockinHippy Mon 03-Nov-14 21:14:25

Lyra Elizabeth has a lovely ring to it,
