We've just had a baby girl and have narrowed her name down to either Isabella or Grace.

We want to have Abigail as a middle name because of family connections but need two middle names for various reasons, we love Olivia but can't have it as a first name.

Does anyone have an idea of a combination that fits? Abigail is difficult to make work as a middle name!

I'd use Abigail as a first name.
Abigail Olivia Treetop sounds great. Isabella and Grace are lovely but too popular.

I think Grace Abigail Isabella sounds lovely x

Both beautiful names in fact my daughter is called isabella grace 😊

bella2bella Wed 08-Aug-18 22:55:14

I like both but think Grace Abigail flows better.

(With Isabella after - Grace Abigail Isabella)

Grace is everywhere nowadays. Actually I know a few isobels / isabelles / isabellas. Depends on whether you mind using a very popular name?

No don't choose Grace!
Isabella is a million times better. Grace is a middle name at best, like Mae, Rose etc.

Isabella is gorgeous.

Grace Abigail.

Nice to hear Grace as a first name for a change.

KatnissK Thu 09-Aug-18 08:57:04

I vote Isabella. Congratulations!

I love Grace, Abigail and Isabella in any order I think they're great names.

I also like Olivia - you've got some lovely names shortlisted

Gender scan in 2 weeks and so I'll be looking at names then!

Isabella Grace Abigail.

I prefer Isabella to Grace, though both are lovely.

ReginaPhalange89 Thu 09-Aug-18 09:59:45

If you're set on Abigail as a middle name id have Isabella Grace Abigail.

I think Isabella followed by Abigail is too much of a mouthful with the 2 A sounds. But grace is too popular for a first name I think. So Isabella Grace Abigail for me

I don't like Abigail. It seems dated to me and I can't stand Abi.

redmini4 Thu 09-Aug-18 10:20:14

Isabella is much better. Just use Abigail as a middle name if that's what you want, as middle names are rarely used.

daisypond Thu 09-Aug-18 11:52:46

I really like Grace as a first name. Much better this way than as a filler middle name. Isabella is pretty too, but it's a little flowery. Grace is a simpler, more classic name. Grace Olivia Abigail is lovely. Isabella Olivia Abigail is too much of a mouthful.

DramaAlpaca Thu 09-Aug-18 14:34:52

Isabella Grace Abigail flows nicely.

KERALA1 Thu 09-Aug-18 23:25:53

I like Abigail. Isabella and Grace are extremely popular - this generations Sarah and Claire. Sadly every Grace my dds know has been horrid which has marred this name somewhat

I know 3 lovely Graces (not The Three Graces) and one is in her 50s, One is 29 and the other one 15.
The name has become overpopular.
I know 5 Abigails. One is Gail, the others Abi/Abbie/Abby.
