Just that really. Which way round do you think we should go?

Which name do you prefer? It’s as simple as that!
I don’t give my DC’s middle names a second thought from week to week, - they’re irrelevant - whereas their first names we’re using every day.

What sally said. I prefer Aurelia personally, beautiful name.

It sounds fine either way so, as the others said, go with the one you like most.

Personally, I prefer Ivy as Aurelia isn't to my taste but that's kind of irrelevant really smile

Do you want her to be Aurelia or Ivy? Because that's all it comes down to!

Saying that, Aurelia Ivy does run the risk of running together a bit if you say it quickly and sounds like Aureliarivy. Might be worth considering, but in reality her full name won't necessarily be said out loud a lot so it may not be an issue!

I prefer the latter smile

Aurelia Ivy.

Aurelia is a million times nicer than Ivy

Gaggleofgirls Mon 09-Oct-17 17:03:03

Thanks we like both which is why we're stuck! We usually go for quite unusual names though so I'm concerned Ivy may not fit with the other girls x

Ivy Aurelia.

Alittlepotofrosie Mon 09-Oct-17 18:04:15

Aurelia is beautiful.

Nonameyet1 Mon 09-Oct-17 19:45:46

Aurelia, definitely! Gorgeous.

I don't like Ivy.

Smoliver Mon 09-Oct-17 22:28:33

I love both names. I think Aurelia Ivy works best though, especially if you're after a unique first name. Either way is good though! grin

Ivy Aurelia flows better, but I prefer Aurelia.

Aurelia Ivy

Aurelia, fab name.

I'm not keen on Ivy at all.

Aurelia Ivy

I couldn't choose between them tbh. I know Ivy is more commonly used, but then Aurelia is a bit more flowery / fussy. Totally depends on your style. Maybe wait to meet her and see what she looks like (assuming you haven't already that is)!
