Morning all,

DC2 is due in 3 weeks and we are happy with our names for a boy or girl.

We have:

Lydia
Oliver

Oliver will have DH's name in the middle so he's sorted but I'm not sure my name works with Lydia! Could you shower me with your suggestions on a 1 or 3 syllable middle name please? Nice and traditional.
Surname is 2 syllables with 'ton' on the end. I just don't think 3 2-syllable names in a row would be right!

Thank you.

Lydia Jane is nice.

I think Lydia is usually three syllables, isn't it? Lid-ee-uh? I think a two syllable middle name would go just as well as a one-syllable. Two sounds better than another three syllable name, to be honest.

Sorry sleep deprivation has clearly hit. Lydia is clearly 3 syllables 🙈

Great suggestions so far! I'm showing DH as they come in 👍🏻

Good choice! I have a Lydia Mary Kate and she loves her middle names because they sound like "fairy cake". She's 8...

What's dc1's middle name?
You could have a theme - our girls have English Queens names and our boys have UK patron saints (mil started that one with dh and his brother).

YorkieDorkie Tue 13-Mar-18 08:45:54

DD1's middle name is Rebecca after her auntie but sadly that's the nicest name in the family, we don't like any of the others!

I would love Lydia Rose but my goddaughter is Rose and so I'm not sure if I like the idea of having the same name.

DH is keen on Lydia Grace!

YorkieDorkie Tue 13-Mar-18 08:46:50

I love Lydia Fairy Cake that's adorable grin

I have a good friend called Lydia who is one of the nicest humans I know so great choice.

She’s lydia May I believe.
Lydia Emma would be lovely too
