Margot Elizabeth
Cecily Bea (to be known as Cece)
Romilly (NN Romy) don't have a middle name for this one yet so suggestions please!

All votes appreciated!

DH loves Cece but not massively keen on Cecily so kind of only wants to go with it if we really do always call her Cece. I'm just completely torn. I change my mind every five minutes!

All lovely, but Romilly is my favourite.

Romilly Cate.

Margot is lovely smile

I honestly don't see the point of giving her a name you never plan to use

Romilly, by a mile.

Romilly Elizabeth would be my favourite.
I also like Cecily very much, and would think it a shame if she was always called Cece.
I'm not keen on Margot or Bea.

Cecily = lovely. Don't like Margot or Romilly. Bea is sweet as mn too.

BrightestAndBest Tue 30-Dec-14 21:05:30

Margot Elizabeth is absolutely stunning - I'd go for this...

Not keen on Cecily, but do quite like Cece. Could Celia or Cecilia be an option for the longer version?

SirChenjin Tue 30-Dec-14 21:07:34

Love love love Cecily and Romilly smile.

Not keen at all on Margot - it was a very popular name for women 50-60 years ago, like Maureen and Wendy, and not due a comeback imo

Ikeameatballs Tue 30-Dec-14 21:09:05

I like them all <no help>.

Romilly Jean
Romilly Una

I only like Margot.

I don't like Romilly.

StampyShortnose Tue 30-Dec-14 21:29:20

Wait till baby arrives and see which of the 3 names suit her best!

VioletVelvet Tue 30-Dec-14 21:42:15

I love Romilly!

Not really keen on the others.

PrincessOfChina Tue 30-Dec-14 21:45:49

A biased lover of Romilly here. Ours has Edith as a middle name.

I do like your other choices too.

myotherusernameisbetter Tue 30-Dec-14 21:48:12

Could you go for something like Catherine Celeste = CC = Cece?

Bowlersarm Tue 30-Dec-14 21:48:35

I love Romilly.

Cece is sweet; what about having it short for Francesca if you don't like Cecily.

I'm not keen on Margot.

sherbetpips Tue 30-Dec-14 21:52:37

Wait till she arrives and see which one she is, worked for us, although turned out to be a boy!

loislines Tue 30-Dec-14 22:06:39

Not a fan of romilly. Margot is lovely. Cecily is lovely too - Cecile, Celia, Cecelia, Catherine all alternatives for Cece.

Only1scoop Tue 30-Dec-14 22:10:09

Cecily I don't like at all

Margot is a great name.

Deerhound Tue 30-Dec-14 22:27:13

I like them all and agree with sherbet that you should wait till she's been and see what suits her.

Having said that, if you or your Dh really don't like Cecily then I wouldn't use it - you won't be able to force everyone to call her Cece

BrambleBee Tue 30-Dec-14 22:38:40

Margot Elizabeth is lovely. I'd love to use that name but DH has ruled it out sad

Not very keen on Romilly, Cecily is quite nice.

Artandco Tue 30-Dec-14 22:43:40

Margin Elizabeth definitely.

Had ds's been female one would have been called Margot Estelle

Deerhound Tue 30-Dec-14 22:44:09

Cecily Bea is a bit like Cecil Beaton (not that it's a bad thing, just an observation)

EmilyGilmore Wed 31-Dec-14 09:17:29

The thing that puts me off Cecily is if the child has a lisp...

picklesandfrittles Wed 31-Dec-14 10:23:14

Thanks so much everyone for your thoughts. It seems from the responses that Romilly and Margot are the frontrunners. I really take the point about calling her something that we don't actually intend to use so, for that reason, I think Cecily is becoming more unlikely. Any further thoughts on Romilly middle names? It feels like it should just be one syllable?
