Dear Ladies,

After my last post receiving such brutal honesty on my final 3 name choices (Lol!) I have taken the majorities advice and gone with 'Emily' - which I know is common but I don't know any around and I love it- and thankfully most of you did too smile

PLEASE help me with a middle name. I really the worst case of analysis paralysis.

So far, my finals are (in no order):

Emily Louise
Emily Kate
Emily Paige
Emily Reece
Emily Grace

What's your favourite?

Thanks so much- I really appreciate your input smile

I personally like Emily Grace.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Mon 27-Jul-15 08:53:24

They all flow nicely but I wOuld second Emily Grace

Wishful80sMontage Mon 27-Jul-15 08:54:56

Emily Louise gets my vote smile classic and sweet

StrawberryMojito Mon 27-Jul-15 08:56:46

Louise or Grace.

Diggum Mon 27-Jul-15 08:57:48

I like Emily Louise too. Louise isn't much used these days and so lovely. Grace is nice but I always think of it as a "filler" name- I know so many who have chosen it as a second name. Louise stands on its own and goes well with Emily.

I like Emily Kate best but they are all nice.

MagpieCursedTea Mon 27-Jul-15 09:28:09

I think if you want something a bit more unusual Emily Paige is lovely. I'm not sure about Emily Reece, I'd associate Reece as a boy's name.

Sophronia Mon 27-Jul-15 10:51:58

Emily Kate

LettuceLaughton Mon 27-Jul-15 11:08:47

Emily Jane is the classic combi.

From your list I'd probably go for Louise.

yomellamoHelly Mon 27-Jul-15 11:14:58

Lovely name! (Was the one of your 3 I would have gone for.)

I think of Reece as a boys name, but generally think they're all nice. I'd probably go for Louise from your list. (Were loads around when I was a kid, but you never hear it any more.) Think Grace is quite a popular second name so would probably steer away from it.

SugarMiceInTheRain Mon 27-Jul-15 11:18:21

I'd go for Emily Kate. Next choice would be Emily Grace. Don't like Paige or Reece at all, and Louise strikes me as a very 70s/80s middle name - half the girls in my school had it as a middle name it seemed!

IsItStupid Mon 27-Jul-15 11:19:55

Emily Louise

If not, then Emily Grace

BothEndsBurning Mon 27-Jul-15 11:40:42

Are Paige and Reece family surnames?

PallasCat Mon 27-Jul-15 11:46:44

Massively in favour of Emily Kate as it was my grandmother's name.
Other than that clear winner wink I think they all work, but would give second place to Emily Reece then Emily Paige in third.

Emma321q Mon 27-Jul-15 11:54:39

Emily Grace is a beautiful name.

daisydalrymple Mon 27-Jul-15 11:57:05

I think Emily grace flows the best from your list. I like Louise (as pp said it was a very popular middle name when I was in school) but am not sure of the two L sounds following each other. Also like Paige but think of Emily as a pretty name whereas Paige is stronger, so I just think grace is more of a similar name.

CrispyFern Mon 27-Jul-15 12:07:01

I don't like Emily Reece.

All the others are nice.

Emily Grace

JakeyBurd Mon 27-Jul-15 12:18:34

Not keen on Paige or Louise, and Kate and Grace seem a bit tired these days.

I like Emily Reece best. The male origin shouldn't be an issue given that it's been used by a very well-known actress. But I'm in Scotland and we are far less uptight about these things than many other places. Male/female/surname/placename is never a problem to us, so I'd say if you like it then do it!

CPtart Mon 27-Jul-15 13:04:41

Emily Kate (although Emily Catherine is nicer).

Emily Louise is a real mouthful and Reece is a boys name. Don't like Paige and too many Graces.
I know Faye is not on your list but that's flows well and is a bit less over used.

NadiaWadia Mon 27-Jul-15 16:13:51

Emily Grace is the nicest of your options, IMO. Emily Kate or Katherine also nice. Emily Louise - both the 'Emily' and the 'Louise' are individually nice, but put together makes it a bit tongue-twistery - too many 'L's too close together. Dislike Reece strongly.

Have you considered Emily Rose, Emily Jane, Emily Anne, Emily Ruth, Emily Clare (if you want one syllable)?

CakeRattleandRoll Mon 27-Jul-15 17:14:25

I like Emily Louise. Another suggestion - Emily Joy?
