Baby No 2 is on the way and, if it's a girl, I am desperate to give her the middle name Cecile after a much loved and missed relative.

The trouble is this clashes horribly with our surname (think the curly 1D member)...

Do we add a second middle name or can anyone suggest a creative way of still honouring a very special lady?

Cecilia seems the obvious slight change to make. Does that work any better?

TinyClanger27 Fri 24-Feb-17 20:11:06

It does work a little better but is the full name that the relative never liked using!

Cecily? Celia?

If ots the middle name it doesn't matter.

I agree that it doesn't matter. Just use it.

I also think that as it's the middle name it doesn't matter.

Have two middle names, the second one could be one syllable like Cecile Rose.

A clash only really matters if it us the first name.?

Sorry, random question mark

Saint Cecilia is the patron saint of music so you could go with a musically-inspired name like Melody or Allegra?

I haven't been able to figure out your surname from your clue so no idea if Cecile Surname sounds unworkable or not. But for a middle name, it doesn't matter half as much if it clashes. I don't like multiple middle names myself but you could consider "Firstname Cecilia Anne Surname" or whatever.

If I'm thinking of the right member of 1D (first name the same as the younger son of Prince Charles?) then I don't think it clashes.

I think we're allowed to say Harry Styles, subtle as the clues are grin
