I’ve got a shortlist of middle names for DD1 and would welcome any opinions and new suggestions, please! It’s likely she’ll be a ‘Betty’ (with Elizabeth on the birth certificate) and so it would need to work with both. At the moment, I’m thinking the following but I’d love some ideas, please!

Elizabeth/Betty Scarlett
Elizabeth/Betty Grace
Elizabeth/Betty Florence
Elizabeth/Betty Clara

I like Elizabeth Grace, Elizabeth Florence and Elizabeth Clara. I don't think the middle name necessarily needs to work with Betty as people don't often use the shortened form of a name + middle name.

How about...

Elizabeth Alice
Elizabeth Cora
Elizabeth Evelyn
Elizabeth Hannah
Elizabeth Ivy
Elizabeth Emma
Elizabeth Mabel
Elizabeth Iris
Elizabeth Frances
Elizabeth Jane
Elizabeth Violet
Elizabeth Miriam
Elizabeth Kate
Elizabeth Pearl
Elizabeth Olive
Elizabeth Ellen
Elizabeth Ava
Elizabeth Isla
Elizabeth Jasmine
Elizabeth Anna
Elizabeth Willow
Elizabeth Rose
Elizabeth Hazel
Elizabeth Carys
Elizabeth Fleur
Elizabeth Clare
Elizabeth Joy
Elizabeth Faye
Elizabeth Wren

Sorry, couldn't resist. A friend if a friend a while back had an Elizabeth Florence who was Betty Flo for short, which I always thought lovely.

Some great suggestions, thank you! Liking the sound of Ava - think I'm leaning towards something short. Maybe ...

I'd sooo love to call her Betty Boo. smile I doubt she'd thank me though ...
