We are really struggling to pick a middle name...set on Willow but totally undecided on the middle name. Which do you prefer?

Willow Abigail
Willow Aurelia
Willow Arabella
Willow Olivia
Willow Brooke

I think Willow Aurelia is pretty. In my opinion, Willow Brooke sounds too much like a river! Like two nature themed names together? Babbling brook by a willow tree... If that makes any sense ๐Ÿ˜‚

We would have had Willow Zara or Willow Athena..
Had a ds!!

Abigail. I like Olivia as a name but I donโ€™t like the repeating oh sound at the end of Willow and the start of Olivia. But thatโ€™s very minor.

What does baby's surname begin with? If it's Elliot then I'd advise against Olivia; if it's Richards don't go for any of the As, etc

Willow Aurelia is a bit of a wobble-fest. I think you'd be best going for something simple - in fact I was just thinking that Brooke worked really well, but willow brook is two nature names. If you're happy with having your daughter's name invariably conjure up images of a tree hanging over a stream then go with that (I think it's quite pretty, but it's completely unambiguous).

@mrs87 makes total sense...I actually thought it sounded like the name of a cottage or a nursing home ๐Ÿ˜‚ not my choice as you might be able to tell!

Ooh Willow Zara is really pretty...might be another to add to the list ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Willow Abigail - fine
Willow Aurelia - don't like Aurelia
Willow Arabella - ok but I'm not that keen.
Willow Olivia - doesn't work
Willow Brooke - sounds like a housing estate or street name

@Sparklypanda77 I get you, I agree it does sound a bit like a school or nursing home... Willowbrooke Primary or something!

I have a Willow Grace. I think it depends on your surname and whether it flows. Good choices though smile

Willow Abigail is lovely
I think it only works with a traditional or classic girls name or it all becomes a bit brambly hedge iyswim, I do like it though

My niece is called Willow Rose

Sorry posted before adding I think I shorter middle name works best with Willow ๐Ÿ™‚

There's an extra care scheme in Washington nr Newcastle called willow brook. It's actually very nice.

Willow grace sounds lovely.
