Second girl due in a few weeks- DD1 is Florence, DH wants DD2 to be Meredith, I don't love it, but its fine. Now for a middle name....?

Love Meredith
needs a one syllable fairly plain name I think
Meredith Grace
Meredith Ann
Meredith Rose
Meredith Hope
Meredith Clare

Rockaby Mon 06-Mar-17 20:12:46

I really like Meredith and love Merry as a nn! Agree with shall that a single syllable name would be nice:

Meredith Jane
Meredith Faye
Meredith Dawn

I was a tiny bit unenthusiastic until I read Rockaby & Jolene's nickname suggestions. Both Merry and Red are really cute.
Also agree with the shorter second name theory. Love Meredith Rose.
What about Meredith Joy?

I know one and she's fab! She goes by Meri.
I like Meredith Joy

Meredith Rose
Meredith Frances
Meredith Eloise
Meredith Sarah
Meredith Anna

Rockaby Mon 06-Mar-17 20:48:08

Meredith Joy is lovely.

Joeybee Mon 06-Mar-17 20:53:21

Meredith is the name I'm probably going to use. I think it goes well with one syllable middle names like Mae, Blythe or Rose. Or some two syllable names like Iris, Ava or Isla.

I think Meredith is lovely. Id nickname her Meri smile it also goes well with Florence. Florrie and Meri would be a delightful sibset

As for middle names, what is your favourite girls name?

If it was me I'd choose something along the lines of Meredith Emmeline or Meredith Evelyn. Meredith Lucy maybe

Kerala2712 Mon 06-Mar-17 21:55:21

I like joy and rose very much. Merrie's nice too as a nn, her sister gets called Florrie. Thank you for the suggestions- one syllable is good. My favourite girls name is Florence, which is why im letting Meredith grow on me!

AuntGertrude Mon 06-Mar-17 21:56:12

I like Meredith Joy or Meredith Ruth, or Meredith Jane.

It's a fantastic name and very strong.

Oh I love the name Meredith!! I agree that a shorter middle name works best. But please don't go for May/Mae, Rose or Grace! Every second child seems to have those as middle names! It's so predictable!

How about. ...


BridgetDarcy Tue 07-Mar-17 13:25:02

I ❤️ it. The one I know is known as Miffy.

EggsEleven Tue 07-Mar-17 13:28:29

I LOVE Meredith. Would've loved this name for DD but there is already one in the family circle. Meredith Joy sounds really nice. Much more original than Meredith Rose (which is also v nice but Rose is v popular as a middle name imo)

harderandharder2breathe Tue 07-Mar-17 13:32:55

Meredith is gorgeous!

FreeNiki Tue 07-Mar-17 15:06:02

It's a lovely name.

Meredith Alexandra

I have two long names too and I really like it.

HeadlessGummyBears Wed 08-Mar-17 17:37:24

The number of syllables the surname is, will determine how well the names all flow together.

Anyway, here are some suggestions:

Meredith Addison
Meredith Alexis
Meredith Autumn
Meredith Bailey
Meredith Blaire
Meredith Belle
Meredith Coral
Meredith Celeste
Meredith Eliza
Meredith Eve
Meredith Faith
Meredith Grace
Meredith Gray
Meredith Harper
Meredith Jade
Meredith Jean
Meredith June
Meredith Leigh
Meredith Lily
Meredith Paige
Meredith Quinn
Meredith Ray
Meredith Rose
Meredith Silver
Meredith Soleil
Meredith Summer
Meredith Winter

Love Meredith, but Meredith Grace sounds too close to Meredith Grey, the lead character in grey's anatomy.

Bear in mind too that Bailey, Alexis and Addison were also characters in GA...

We went with Meredith Susan (after my mother). Shes lovely.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Thu 10-Aug-17 18:08:01
