Claudia Ingrid or...?

Baby due any day (yesterday to be precise!) and we're having a slight wobble over a middle name to go with Claudia. We'd settled on Ingrid, but now not sure whether it scans quite right. DH's favourite is Lydia but that doesn't work with Claudia. Our surname is a very common, two syllable English name beginning with T.

What else might we like to go with Claudia?

Before a load of people come on to suggest Rose, Grace and May...

I'm guessing your surname ends in an N.

How about something like Elodie? Annabel/le, Isabelle, Marguerite?

I'm thinking three syllables, but ending with a consonant sound, or an ie/y. Not ending with an A, as it would be too repetitive after Claudia.

Love Claudia, by the way.

Surname does indeed end with an N wink

Elodie was actually our choice to go with Claudia when DS was born - Claudia was then second choice for a girl but has come to the fore and Beatrice is now common as muck

But dh says it might be too pretty. Sigh. He loves to present a problem and leave me to come up with a solution. Not a fan of very girly names like Rose etc. Seems important somehow to have strong names for a girl.

It's a tough one, I would chose a shorter one to go with Claudia,
Claudia Jane
Claudia Jude
Claudia Anne

'You do know Claudia means...'. Someone will be along soon to churn this one out. I actually like Ingrid with it.

Claudia Estella?

Claudia Ingrid is great though. Claudia is a fabulous name.

I like Claudia Ingrid.

Or you could use your Beatrice as a middle name - Claudia Beatrice is nice.

Otherwise:
Claudia Evelyn
Claudia Imogen
Claudia Frances

Thanks all, some nice suggestions here. Will discuss with dh.

MoonHare Fri 09-Sep-16 19:37:40

I like ingrid as a name but as a middle name to go with Claudia I think a short middle name rolls off the tongue better.
hettyb's suggestion of Claudia Ruth is great and is strong not frilly.

I like Claudia Belle as suggested above....was about to write that myself! Definitely would go for a one syllable middle name after a longish first name.

I think first name ending with a vowel and next name starting with one often hinders names flowing. I think this is the case with Claudia Ingrid....it jars in the middle when you say it out loud.

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Sat 10-Sep-16 15:23:02

If forced to choose something other than Ingrid which I love, then Claudia Robyn and Claudia Margot are lovely too.
