We are really struggling with the middle name for our eagerly awaited baby girl. We have decided on Emily for the first name but can't agree on middle, we've narrowed it down to Elizabeth or Jane! My other daughter is Lilly Elizabeth, my middle name is Elizabeth so is my mothers and her mothers and so on .... But .... Is Emily Elizabeth to many E's?? Jane is the other option and grandmothers name so we're trying to keep some form of tradition/family name.

Help and opinions would be much appreciated!!

Elizabeth Jane?

I'm an Emily Jane, have always thought it flows nicely - Emily Elizabeth would be quite a mouthful!

Emily Jane. Emily Elizabeth just reminds me of Clifford the big red dog.

Emily Bronte was Emily Jane Bronte and I've always thought it was a beautiful combination.

Emily Jane as you've already used Elizabeth.

Emily Jane goes really well. Emily Elizabeth - great names individually but together too many 'e' and 'l' sounds.

Like Bumble Emily Elizabeth just reminds me of Clifford the big red dog. Love both names though.

DS would've been Emily Elizabeth if he'd been a girl. I still love it.
