Just found out we are having a girl.
Now my mum passed away a month before we found out, (lmp was her funeral) we said if it was a girl then we definitely would have Valerie as its middle name.
I love Vivienne as a first name but not such if it's too much

Vivienne Valerie.

Other names we like are
Norah
Eleanor
I like old names (have two already)

I like it. Her nickname could be VeeVee.

I love it. Not too much at all.
Sorry for your loss. 💐

I agreee with n0ne and I think that's lovely

It sounds lovely together. If you really want to break up the two V names, you could just put Eleanor between them or something. Lots of people have more than one middle name.

I prefer Norah Valerie (gorgeous!) but I think Vivienne Valerie works too. VeeVee would be a cute nickname!

What letter does your surname begin with?

It is lovely but i think i might put a short name in between ie Vivienne Rose Valerie. Or any short name to break it up really.

I actually love it! I do like your other choices though, Norah is really beautiful and we are having Nelle for our little girl who is due in July which is a nickname of Eleanor.

Vivienne Valerie is lovely, VeeVee is a sweet nn. People hardly use middle names very often (can't remember the last time I was asked for mine!) so I'd definitely go for it!

Vivienne Valerie is lovely. I love the name Valerie and Vivienne is a really pretty name.

Vivienne Valerie Eleanor is also lovely imo.

I'm sorry for your loss flowers

It sounds lovely.

Very pretty OP.
So sorry about your Mum.🌺

Sorry to hear about your loss flowers

I think Vivienne Valerie is fantastic! It's classic but really sweet, cool and fun, and I feel like the double V

Jooni Thu 13-Apr-17 09:23:50

Oops posted too soon

... is a sweet little double nod to her in a way. Good luck!

Sophronia Thu 13-Apr-17 16:14:48

It's lovely. Vivi would be a nice nn.

Reow Thu 13-Apr-17 16:16:58

I love Norah

Thanks all, thankfully hubby is onboard with it too so think we will go with it.
Thanks for suggestions on nn, I really don't like Viv, Vi not so much, and my friend also suggested veevee.
I don't want to add another middle name, as my other two only have one, and dont want my mums name pushed back. Our surname starts with a B, and is long, I think it does go altogether with the surname.

Love it!

Sorry for your loss OP flowers. We also lost my mum just before I fell pregnant with my DD, who was born exactly one year after my mum passed away (same date). She has my mum's name as a middle name too.

It really doesn't go with her first name, unlike your choices! I'm glad we used it anyway though.

MikeUniformMike Fri 14-Apr-17 17:49:41

Could you use Valerie as a first name. It's pretty.
Valerie Nell?

So sorry for your loss Rockby xxx

I'm not sure if it's too close to losing her to call it her first name. Think it will be too hard for my dad, who we are living with now.

Just looked up the meaning, (probably should of done than earlier) and it means life, so I think it's even more fitting. 💖💖

Just regarding an extra middle name, I know you've said you don't want one, but in case you change your mind please keep Valerie as the second name as that's the one used for anything official/bank details etc - they just drop the 2nd middle name
