Eloise Josephine F
Abigail May F
Imogen May F
Ellie May F

Imogen or Abigail... Ellie May is overdone

Imogen is my favourite. Can be shortened to Immy if you want.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Mon 22-Jun-15 15:08:38

Eloise Josephine

Not just Ellie as you have the option of shortening to Ellie with Eloise anyway.

Eloise May is my favourite followed by Imogen May.

manicinsomniac Mon 22-Jun-15 15:12:54

Abigail May is my favourite.

Also like Imogen May and Eloise Josephine

Eloise Josephine - beautiful!!

Ellie has been done to death
Imogen I really dislike this name, but am in the minority as everyone seems to love it
Abigail will probably be Abbey
So I'd go for Eloise out of your options but I don't like the mn you picked to go with it. Also Eloise will end up another Ellie

May is SUCH an overused middle name (along with Rose and Grace) of be tempted to avoid it entirely.

MarieJeanne Mon 22-Jun-15 15:51:44

Eloise Josephine

Think i may have to disappoint family & choose my own middle name as i'm not sure on them either sad may has been passed down but my mum didnt use it with me so might just be selfish & pick my own.... although that could take a while to decide too haha
Thanks for all your input, it's really helping

Abigail May (although I'd prefer Abigail Josephine), or Eloise Josephine.

Peachyfacegurl Mon 22-Jun-15 16:36:09

I like Abigail best out of your first name options and Josephine for a middle name- lovely

NadiaWadia Mon 22-Jun-15 16:43:37

Eloise Josephine is lovely. May has a nice sound, but has been done to death in recent years. Imogen and Abigail are also lovely names.

Ellie sounds quite nicknamey and 'little girl-y' and has also been done to death. You could use the nickname 'Ellie' from Eloise anyway, as pp pointed out.

MamaLazarou Mon 22-Jun-15 16:44:12

Eloise, definitely.

2Blessed0301 Mon 22-Jun-15 16:46:36

Abigail May is Beautiful smile my fav

CakeRattleandRoll Mon 22-Jun-15 16:50:20

Another vote for Abigail May (or Abigail Josephine, also lovely).

Zakken Mon 22-Jun-15 17:00:05

Eloise, definitely. But not with May, which has become a default second name with the current generation.

LemonYellowSun Mon 22-Jun-15 17:03:50

Eloise Josephine

beedeepullen Mon 22-Jun-15 17:04:47

I think I have to 100% agree with getbusyliving

PallasCat Mon 22-Jun-15 17:53:26

Eloise Josephine

Eloise May

Love Eloise but anything with May,Mai,Mae is totally overdone these days. Ellie on its own is lovely.
