I'm 33 weeks pregnant with a girl after suffering from recurrent miscarriage.

Can I have some meaningful name suggestions?

Iris? I believe that is rainbow in Greek.

Abigail- means father's joy.
Hope- might be good middle names.
Congratulations, I hope the rest of the pregnancy goes well.

My friend's rainbow baby is Beatrice which means "bringer of blessings/joy".

We loved the name Iris for ours if we'd had a girl.

StealthPolarBear Wed 14-Feb-18 12:21:35

I think joy is a beautiful name and underused

My little girl is a rainbow baby. Her name is Iris. I'd always liked it and when I found out what it meant, I just knew I had to have it. Luckily my DP agreed!

My rainbow baby is an Iris. She also has Joy alongside another middle name. She loves that her name means goddess of rainbows!

Ooh those are lovely. Hesitancy over Delilah (can only think of the song!)
Florence would be my choice out of those.
