This was our original shortlist,


We had it narrowed down to Nancy or Bonnie. I'm leaning towards Nancy and DH towards Bonnie.

Thoughts and middle name suggestions welcome.

Love Bonnie, but also like Nancy... not much help smile

Betty1989 Tue 24-May-16 14:08:07

Thanks Abit. I think that's our trouble, we like them both too!

Leyla Olive

I'm not a big fan of either tbh but given the option I'd go for Nancy as I think that's better than being called Bonnie (which in Scotland means pretty) and not being bonnie. But the from your list I really only like Vivienne so obviously we don't have the same taste smile

Not a fan of either I'm afraid

Nancy - Moany old lady
Bonnie - describing word, what if she isn't 'bonnie'?. Also a nickname more

I like Vivienne best. Vivienne Claudia, or Vivienne Olivia.

How about Constantina or Constansa with Connie as nickname?

I prefer Bonnie but also like Nancy. I adore Vivienne and Claudia (Vivi, Vienne, Claudie, Claude - all nice diminutives)
When DC were born six people DH worked with had girl babies and they were called: Leyla, Lila, Leela, Lola, Lula and Laila. Put me off that names and all its variants for good.

Bonnie if I chose between the 2.

Olive is my favourite.

Thanks all this is helping!

chameleon43 Tue 24-May-16 14:41:05

Bonnie will always be Bonnie Langford for me....

sorry realise not helpful - but I do like your other names!

Betty1989 Tue 24-May-16 14:42:14

Noncomittal do you think that Olive will be lost amongst the large number of Olivia's that must be about considering its popularity? Also, if they all get shortened to Liv...which I don't like and is the main thing putting me off Olive.

Betty1989 Tue 24-May-16 14:43:14

Ha ha Chameleon that was a pro for me!

OneMagnumisneverenough Tue 24-May-16 14:49:13

Maybe because I don't like olives, I really really hate it as a name - also because I'm an old duffer, it just reminds me of Olive form on the buses. Don't mind Olivia though for some reason...

Bonnie rather than Nancy. Just think it has a prettier sound, and a nice meaning.

Vivienne is my favourite though

Can't stand Olive

Zadocthepriest Tue 24-May-16 15:00:24

Vivienne can be shortened to Veevie which has a similar sound to Nancy and Bonnie ( personally I love Nancy)

Namelessbabe Tue 24-May-16 15:03:50

I like Claudia or Layla.
Don't like the others, and Olive would be my least favourite.

Betty1989 Tue 24-May-16 15:09:04

We felt that both Nancy and Bonnie suited single syllable middle names (surname is two syllables). Any suggestions?

OneMagnumisneverenough Tue 24-May-16 15:17:16

Bonnie May
Bonnie Ann
Bonnie Fay

Nancy Rose
Nancy Joy
Nancy Grace

Namelessbabe Tue 24-May-16 15:25:27

Single syllable middle names:

minipie Tue 24-May-16 15:32:09

<outs self> My DDs have Fleur and Blythe as their middle names

Lweji Tue 24-May-16 15:35:31

Between the two, Nancy.

My first thought was Nancy Rose.
