I’m expecting a baby girl soon and quite like the name Gertrude. The only problem is that I can’t find a middle name that suits it. Please help!

I think you need something quite short and light to balance Gertrude.

Any family names?

I love Gertrude, that was my Great Aunt's name!

Gertrude Lily was her name.

Gertie for short.

Fabulous!

Keep it short, something like Ella

Gertrude - that's a big name. are you sure?

DramaAlpaca Sun 01-Dec-19 23:06:51

Choose carefully so she can use it if she decides she doesn't like Gertrude. Which she probably will. Gertrude - honestly, what on earth are you thinking?

Could you use Gertrude as a middle name?

My Mum had a friend called Gertie Wallace who reeked of mothballs

Personally, I would rethink Gertrude, but obviously it's up to you.

I hope you can afford to send her to private school with Betty and Wilfred or she'll probably be laughed at. Kids are not as nice as we'd like them to be

Definitely something short but I'd really reconsider Gertrude. Im not trying to be mean in any way but it's kind of an ugly looking name if that makes any sense. I'm off to hide nowblush

don’t call your beautiful DD Gertrude. It is not a nice name

JumpiestBat Mon 02-Dec-19 00:07:41

Can be shortened to Trudy/Trude. A lovely unusual name!

I like Anna/Hannah or Joy for a middle name.
