Dh and I like both as first names but can't decide on middle names to go with them! Inspiration needed.

Emma Claire works, Claire Emma not so much.

Maybe go with a more flowery middle name to balance the simple (and v nice) first names?

Emma Madeleine
Emma Victoria
Emma Juliet

Claire Penelope
Claire Isabella
Claire Elizabeth

(Should say I've got a rhotic Scottish accent, so some of the Claire suggestions might run together a bit in English accents - they don't in mine, still like them though!)

Much depends on the surname. Need a clue as to how it sounds.

Hulababy Mon 20-Jul-15 21:29:17

My middle name is Louise. Claire Louise was very very popular in the 70s. However, the two names to flow together easily.

I also think it needs at least two syllables

Sunbeam18 Mon 20-Jul-15 21:29:38

I'm a Claire Lindsey

drudgetrudy Mon 20-Jul-15 22:43:15

Claire Elizabeth

Emma Catherine

Thanks for all the suggestions there's quite a few I hadn't thought of. I would put them together but we're expecting twins grin . our surname is one syllable so I think we can get away with two or even three syllables in the message middle.
