Hi all we have chosen the first name Emerald, but are having trouble finding a middle name to go with it! Please no names beginning with "J" thanks x

Emerald is lovely! I haven't ears it before.

The obvious one to avoid is Isla! grin

So you could either go for something quite classic. I know someone who did this with all four of her DCs. They have unusual first names and classic middle names so that they can always use their middle name if they decide they don't like the first one.

In that case:

Emerald Amy
Emerald Elizabeth
Emerald Hannah
Emerald Alexandra

Or else:

Emerald Persephone
Emerald Octavia
Emerald Aurelia
Emerald Leonora
Emerald Isadora

"Haven't heard it" not "ears it"!

Don't like Emerald.

Sounds like a my little pony or unicorn!

How about Elodie or Elouise ?

She asked for middle names, she's already chosen Emerald as a first name....

I think something quite classic and short with one syllable

Emerald Jane
Emerald Anne

Something along those lines?

Oh not Jane blush misread the J part

I don't really see the point of middle names, so if you don't have a strong feeling for any name in particular, I'd just go with nothing. Or, if you really think you need one, then go with one of a family member. Perhaps your name, or your mum's.

I don't think anybody has ever used my middle name - apart from when that conversation of what people's middle names are used to come up at school - so whether a middle name "goes with" a first name is of supreme unimportance in my opinion.
