I'm due in less than a week with DC2. We don't know the sex of the baby but have decided on Henry John for a boy.
For a girl we can't decide between:
Matilda
Madeleine

With either:
Ivy
Grace
Vera
As a middle name.

DD1 is Phoebe Rose.

What do you think?

Not very helpful but I love both Matilda and madeleine. Only thing that might make me choose Matilda is less likely that people will spell it differently?

I like Ivy or Vera as a middle name as I know so many girls with Grace.

Love Matilda. I like all your middle names but think Matilda Grace goes really well.

Matilda Grace.

Madeleine and Matilda are "similar" names to me, because Madeleine is often Maddie and Matilda often Mattie. But Matilda won't have spelling problems, like Madeleine/Madeline/Madelyn etc. will.

Matilda Grace would be my pick of your possible names but they are all nice!

Thank you! Still confused. We'll have to wait and see what it looks like.

Matilda Grace is beautiful & easy to spell

Spottyladybird Fri 04-Nov-16 11:30:51

Spelling doesn't worry me too much- my eldest is called Phoebe!

Madeleine Ivy. I think it would be nice for sisters to each have a 'nature' mn.

Madeleine Ivy - but all are nice. I'm not so keen on grace as a middle name just as it is so commonly used.

Spottyladybird Fri 04-Nov-16 12:43:23

I think the same about Grace. We used Rose last time and half the girls her age have Rose as a middle name. The other option is Lily as a middle name but I think it sounds a bit clunky.

Matilda Ivy. Grace is nice but as you say it's very commonly used as a middle name now. Lilly is even more popular around here, both as a middle name and a first name!

But I like all the variations except Matilda Vera, which doesn't flow.

Madeline Vera

But if I had to make up my own I really like Vera Grace
