DH sand I both love the name so 99.99% sure DD will be Esme. Favourites so far for a middle name are:

Esme Alexandra
Esme Harriet
Esme Catherine

But does anyone have anything else to suggest? smile

Esme Anne
Esme Elizabeth
Esme Marie

Esme Hope. I think a monosyllabic name works best.

Esme Rose. I know Rose is used a lot for middle names but it's a favourite of mine because it's my middle name

Esme Jane

Esme Louise/Louisa

Esme Charlotte

Or Esme Sophia

I was going to say esme rose too. I think you should choose another four letter name, it will roll off the tongue better (and be easier for her to spell)!

Thank you, some lovely ideas, I will run them past DH!

I love Esme Rose and Esme Hope...I had a mmc last year so I've spent this pregnancy hoping everything will be ok!

Rose, Grace and May are very popular middle names. This would make me want to avoid them.

Esme Miranda
Esme Lucinda
Esme Honor

I also think the Rose/May/Grace middle names are lovely but overused.

Depends on how many syllables in the surname.
If its a 1 syllable surname then I reckon a longer middle name would sound nicer, eg. Esme Rosalind Smith
If its a long surname then a 1 syllable middle name would sound good, eg. Esme Hope Alexander
I think if its a 2 syllable surname then a 2 syllable middle name works well
Eg. Esme Catherine Herbert
