First of all, I'm not interested in any other suggestions. I'd just like to know which of these 3 names you prefer:

Surname is 2 syllables and starts with a T. Middle name will be either Jane or Mary.

DramaAlpaca Wed 25-Oct-17 17:32:55

They are all lovely names, but my vote goes to Cecily Jane.

EllaHen Wed 25-Oct-17 17:33:12

I think I like Cecily. Especially with your T surname and middle name Jane.

Finola1step Wed 25-Oct-17 17:34:11

Another vote for Cecily Jane. Congratulations flowers

Cecily Jane Turner/Tucker etc sounds just lovely. I love Adeline but would hesitate due to een/ine pronunciation. Miranda is lovely too but I choose Cecily.

MoonHare Wed 25-Oct-17 17:39:26

Miranda then Cecily not Adeline - again due to the potential for pn confusion.

HainaultViaNewburyPark Wed 25-Oct-17 17:44:20

We'd pronounce the ending of Adeline as 'een' - it hadn't even occurred to me that there might be a different pronunciation blush

Cecily Mary sounds good to me.

BenLui Wed 25-Oct-17 17:47:07

Cecily Jane here too.

MoonHare Wed 25-Oct-17 17:48:49

I think people who don't know her on seeing it written down will often decide it's pn Adel-ine- rhymes with line, rather than the een you prefer.

I would definitely pronounce adeline with an 'ine' sound, not an 'een' sound if i read it.

I like both your others but prefer Jane as the middle name with both Miranda and Cecily

FresasAndFrambuesas Wed 25-Oct-17 17:53:44

Oh, also I know you said no other names but it's more of a variant, I think Cecily Maria works well too

Annabelle4 Wed 25-Oct-17 17:56:15

Cecily Jane is absolutely beautiful.

KellyMarieTunstall2 Wed 25-Oct-17 18:06:01

Cecily Jane is great.

I love a similar name - Cecilia and had it on our girls list (nickname CeCe which I thought would be cute when she was little)

I agree with Adeline having a few pronunciations.

Adeline definitely - it’s very beautiful.

Adeline Mary surname

SweetChickadee Wed 25-Oct-17 18:20:48

Cecily - so pretty

MadisonAvenue Wed 25-Oct-17 18:24:36

Adeline, with the -ine pronunciation, is beautiful.

ZuzuMylittleGingersnap Wed 25-Oct-17 18:36:22

Cecily Jane - lovely!

(Nicest in its Cecily entirety, IMO, but "CeCe", with the "See-See" pronunciation, does work really well for a shortening).

BewareOfTheToddler Wed 25-Oct-17 18:40:11

Adeline Mary! Or Cecily Jane. But all are lovely names.
