I want to give our DD2 my Grandma's name Shirley as her middle name but struggling for ideas for her first name. DD1 is Elizabeth if that helps!

Was thinking of something a little more modern, not over used but not unheard of iyswim!

HesitantHeart Anne Shirley is the much-loved heroine of the Anne of Green Gables books. She's amazing.

BlytheofWindyWillows I was talking DH into Blythe should we ever have a little girl smile Gilbert for a boy would probably be a step too far so I'll take what I can get!

"Don'tCallMe" ?

(Oh come on, someone had to....! grin)

Shots I wondered how long it would be before that came up!

Some great suggestions. I love Jessica and Annabelle

Sorry...

One word of caution though - I speak as someone with 4 syllable first and middle names, and then a 1 syllable surname. My first and middle names make me sound all fancy, but then my surname lets me down a bit. You sound like you are going for a 3 and 3 - how many in your surname?

And it can be a bit of a pain when I have to use all of them together cos it takes so ruddy long!
