We are trying to find a middle name for our daughter!

So, first name is Isla... surname is short too. We are stuck! DH likes Bethany and hasn't mentioned any others! I like Carolyn, and a few similar names to that, like Caitlyn, as my late aunt was called Kathleen, so it gave me that idea. I also like Juliette, after a late friend of mine called Julie. FIL has mentioned Rose, but I think it is too short with both her first name and surname being 4 letters long...

DH and I would prefer a longer name and he has said not a 'cool' or modern or made up name hmm grin whatever that means!

I had DS when on my own, and so named him myself, he is Joseph (as I liked the name) and Robert (after my grandad) so I have said to DH that he can name Isla - it's just that I don't really like Bethany! Maybe it will grow on me hmm

His grandma's name is Eileen so that is too similar to Isla. We don't like the other grandma's name or my grandma's names!!!

So anybody have any lovely names that they think might work???!!!!

I know, Isla Rose does sound good doesn't it? I have a friend with a daughter called Rose and that was also part of the reason I dismissed it, but it does fit nicely! I'm not sure about Isla Catherine... Isla Cerys... hmm...

DH says we can't have any name as a middle name that also ends in 'a' so lots that we like are immediately crossed off, sigh!

Isla Rose by any other name would smell as sweet...

JackBlackRoady Sun 27-Apr-08 08:56:36

aww, how lovely are you all?! and i thought i would end up with suggestions like 'wight' and 'man' grin !

isla grace

I agree that if yur surname is short, something longer would be good in the middle.

Isla Grace and Isla Rose are lovely, but personally I think eg Isla Rose Grey is too short and punchy.

What about

Isla Sophia Grey
Isla Jacqueline Grey
Isla Elizabeth Grey

Or Rosie.

georgiemama Sun 27-Apr-08 15:06:44

Elizabeth - but then I would say that its my middle name!!
