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 😂

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

Abigail. I like Olivia as a name but I don’t like the repeating oh sound at the end of Willow and the start of Olivia. But that’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 😂 not my choice as you might be able to tell!

Ooh Willow Zara is really pretty...might be another to add to the list 🙈

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 🙂

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

Willow grace sounds lovely.
