We have a beautiful baby girl, who was born this morning. Absolutely love her to pieces...

We kept 2 names, at the front of our minds, hoping 1 would jump out/feel right (now she is here) but it hasn't... I would like it decided (preferably today) smile

We love both names - that's the problem! Her older brothers don't like either grin oh well!

Middle name will be Madeleine...

Congratulations!! I love Grace. More popular but lovely... Ah. Enjoy the newborn snuggles and hope you recover well and get some sleep. (Hard with two older ones, I know...)

Gabrielle as Grace is very popular

Vote for Grace here. But I'm biased wink

Think there's one other - mine has her initial on nursery missives but never actually met another in nearly three years. Get lots of compliments when people as her name. Gabriella also lovely though.

Photo or it never happened.... grin

Gabriella/Gabrielle for me. I used to love the names Grace but I've gone of it since I've seen a few children with it where it really wasn't appropriate...if you get what I mean.

Gabriella. Also a little biased as it is my DD's middle name. Gabriella Grace actually has a good ring to it if you aren't 100% settled on Madeleine for a middle name.

They're both absolutely lovely, congratulations!

Gabriella would give her more nickname options, but Grace is also perfectly beautiful.

Congratulations again

Congratulations! Love Grace. smile

Gabriella definitely!!!

Grace is very common, and much hated by a friend of ours who is not at all graceful!
