Hoping you can help. My mum is called Carole and we are v close. If I have a girl I would love to honour my mum by giving the baby a variation of her name as her middle name. All I can think of is Carly, can you give me more suggestions please? First name will be Olivia or Eva. Thanks!

Another vote for Caroline. Works well as a middle name for both Olivia and Eva.

Thank you all, I think I'll go for Caroline. I like Carolyn too just not sure if it flows as well?

I love Caroline. Olivia Carole or Eva Carole would be nice too.

I think Carole works itself

Caroline or Carrie

Why don't you just give Carole as the middle name? Anything else seems a bit tenuous.

Thanks everyone. Squoosh and Gotta my husband actually said the same thing to me last night - why don't we just go with Carole. I don't really know why - maybe because I know my mum is not keen on her name! You are probably right though it does sound nice. I am probably over thinking things anyway as people don't really use middle names much do they?

Olivia Carol
Or Eva caroline

Or as Carol is apparently the males version of Charles,

Eva Charlie?

Does your mum doesn't like her name, does she have a middle name that you could use?

MrsGW Tue 31-May-16 16:10:13

Charlotte is also a female version of Charles, so that could work?

Olivia Charlotte, or Eva Charlotte are lovely smile
