My sisters are called Caroline and Emily. I'd like to use Emmeline as a middle name on my girls list so that baby can be named after both of them.

I'm worried it's a bit 'Renesmee'-esque (Twilight) though, and that my family will think it's a bit naff. Thoughts?

Emmeline is a beautiful, classy name. Use it!

It's lovely, and a very nice tribute to your sisters.

My husband thinks it's silly!

It's great. What's silly about it?

I absolutely love it and still wish I'd given it as a first name to DD3.
Emmeline Pankhurst is quite a cool role model. I did the combination of two peoples names as well to make one and everyone I've mentioned it to has said they think it's lovely, Definitely not naff in my book can't imagine your sisters would think anything than it was a lovely gesture and who cares what anyone else thinks

Elegant! The next step in the mellifluous Emma and Emily trend.

It deserves a revival.

I love it!

This is what we've picked as the middle name if we have a DD, so naturally I think it's fantastic smile

Gorgeous name, I would use it for a first name.

Your husband doesn't think you just made it up, does he?

As it's a real name, unlike Renesmee or whatever.

MiniMolMop Mon 28-Mar-16 20:06:15

No he knows it's real, just thinks it's silly for us to use it!

MadameJosephine Mon 28-Mar-16 20:23:28

It's beautiful, not even a tiny bit silly

Yes, as long as you use Emma as a first name in tribute to Hot chocolate grin

It's a great name, Emmeline Pankhurst is a kick-ass role model, and it honours both your sisters. Go for it!
