Middle name?

We are planning to call our baby Nancy-Rose but can't decide on a middle name or whether to not have a middle name at all.

Does anyone have any ideas of nice, traditional sounding names that would work as a middle name? Or do you think I should separate the names so she is Nancy with Rose as the middle name?

I think just Nancy Rose is lovely, I personally, don't like hyphens in names though so would just seperate them smile

I'd also go for Nancy Rose Surname without the hyphen. I find almost all hyphenated first names a bit of a mouthful and sort of a bit unnatural to say, if that makes sense? "Nancy-Rose, come for your tea", Nancy-Rose, have you done your homework?". It's just a bit strange when I say it. That said, I know a few children with hyphenated names and their parents and teachers must manage ok.

Definitely drop the hyphen and use Rose as the middle name.

Thanks, yes I think you're all right Nancy Rose would be better. It fits well with our other dcs names as well like that smile

I love the name Nancy btw! Think Nancy Rose is very pretty.

I really like Nancy! Hyphenated names all roll in to one for me. So it takes away from the first part if that makes any sense.

So yes i would just use it as a first and middle name.

Aww it's lovely. It reminds me of Annie Rose from the Alfie books.
