Please don't say Oil...I'm about to give birth and very hormonal!

I have sort of given DH the middle name choice as he is letting me have Olive however I wondered what people think of his favourites...

Olive Celia
Olive Arabella
Olive Penelope

Any other ideas I could tempt him with?

Olive Nicole
Olive Celeste
Olive Felicity

Good luck with birth/baby/finding a name

I like Olive Penelope.
Can't think of anything better!
Persephone?
Amaryllis?
Alexandria?

I agree with cosmic girl. Penelope would be gorgeous!

Depends on your surname - if your chosen middle name begins with a vowel, it may spell a word, eg Olive Alice Fraser = OAF! Olive is lovely though, it was my lovely Mum's name.

Having read the above suggestions, all the ones with three syllables sound good!

I have met 2 little Olives.

The other was Olive Lee.

I know an Olive May

LuluJakey1 Wed 17-Aug-16 22:09:17

OP- as n Olive Penelope Dunlop - no don't think that is too much at all.

Yeah, maybe not O.P.P... a.k.a. "Other people's pussy". As immortalised by "Naughty by Nature".

Penelope is lovely

Came on to say good for you for picking Olive - it's gorgeous

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Thu 18-Aug-16 09:30:12

I love Olive! Gorgeous name smile.

I far prefer Persephone to Penelope personally. I think it goes better with Olive as well.

How about:

Olive Serena
Olive Josephine
Olive Estella
Olive Aurora

Olive Arabella would sound lovely, but you'd get the initials OAP...
