What is Romilly's Middle name?

She's here! We went with Romilly after lots of help from this forum so thank you! We are still stuck on a middle name though so any ideas would be much appreciated.

Initial thoughts....
I really wanted to have Rita as a middle name as its my grandmas name but does Romilly Rita sound as ridiculous as I think it does?

I've got a feeling that single syllable middle names would work best. Do you agree? If so, what is there apart from rose or grace, neither of which I can use?

If it's relevant, her nn is Romy. Which I have noticed is already being used a lot!

Our surname is ugly and begins with a U pronounced 'yew'

Thank you in advance!

Also, I think Romilly Rita is lovely, but maybe break it up with a second Middle name if it bothers you, e.g. Romilly Alice Rita

I do love Rita but I'm not sure if it goes. Jane would be lovely with it.

Mary, Jane, Anne, Emma, Harriet. I think I'm saying plain and traditional.

One syllable names:

Faith
Hope
Kate
Blanche
Eve
Maeve
May
Skye
Beth

Alternatively, longer names could work well
Romilly Elizabeth
Romilly Alexandra

But to me, 2 and 3 syllable names don't flow.

Romilly is a lovely name.

I think Romilly Rita could work. Otherwise, what about:

Romilly Rose
Romilly Grace
Romilly Kate
Romilly Ruth
Romilly Jane
Romilly Rebecca

Romilly Rose
Romilly Kate sounds nice too

NotTheKitchenAgainPlease Mon 19-Jan-15 23:27:24

What Just said really.

Congratulations!

I'd just go with Rita and not worry that it hindered the flow of the name slightly. I like the alliteration.

SnoringNorma Tue 20-Jan-15 01:21:36

Congratulations! Please forgive any repeats
Pearl
Fern
Maeve
Sian
Beth
Claire
But Romilly Pearl is my favourite.

Oh, Romilly is to die for!! LOVE that name!

As for middles - Pearl or Joy smile

Congrats!

Romilly Rita sounds cool. I love the name Rita, could you go with Rita Romilly? Way cooler!

OutragedFromLeeds Tue 20-Jan-15 01:47:38

I think it sounds better with a long middle name.

Romilly Elizabeth
Romilly Cassandra
Romilly Olivia
Romilly Anastasia
Romilly Alexandra
Romilly Isabella

Romilly Jean. The one syllable J names are the way to go but this is my favourite.

Justyouwaitandsee Tue 20-Jan-15 05:42:29

Ooh I love Romilly Jean too, but still think that it is nice to use Rita given it's special significance. Nice to have something a bit different to the norm and personal meaning.

LovelyWeatherForDucks Tue 20-Jan-15 19:18:16

Romilly Margaret/Margot? I think Rita is sometimes used as a nn for Margaret so there would be link!

maggiethemagpie Tue 20-Jan-15 19:42:16

Romilly Rita does sound slightly ridiculous. You did ask.

Love Romilly btw.

ClaireFraser Mon 26-Jan-15 21:32:57

I think the earlier suggestion of adding another middle name inbetween Romilly and Rita works really well. As the pp (sorry, can't remember who it was!) said eg Romilly Alice Rita sounds gorgeous!

Romilly Rita makes me think of Ryvita.
