I was thinking Mae, but it sounds a bit country and western!

Surname is Sales


Im getting fed up with this, can't decide.

(Lydia isn't definate just trying it out )

ooh yes jane-lydia jane sales sounds lovely

CarGirl Sat 26-Jul-08 11:33:24

I thought May - definately a one syllable thing would be best I think


wheresthehamster Sat 26-Jul-08 11:36:35

Hmm... I was thinking 2-syllables would be better like Lucy or Suzie or (from the other thread) Nancy

DH doesn't like the name Lydia but that doesn't matter wink he didn't like DS2s name at first either! lol

really pretty

Lydia Margaret Sales has a nice sound to it. Margaret is used far less often than single syllable names. How about Eleanor, hang on maybe not.

DD is Lydia, and she has a three syllable middle name smile but she has a three syllable surname too, so it goes.

I think you could go long or short with your surname, but I like the sound of the short ones - I think anything other than another 'a' ending one

ive liked it since before I was pregnant and just keep coming back to it

Mary would work too

PotPourri Sat 26-Jul-08 12:06:21

I think one syllible (sp??). Rose, Jane, Mae is nice, ruth, jean, joan, anne, kay, belle, marie (2 syllibles though)

Agree Mary is perfect, and so under-used now.

My friend has a Lydia Alice.

My Dd's second and third names are Lydia Grace...should be a single syllable IMO.
Lydia Grace Sales...rolls off the tongue.
I think Lydia Rose Sales is nice too.

belgo Sat 26-Jul-08 12:21:12

Lydia Mary or Lydia Marie are both very nice.

Not May/Mae - seems so over used.

Lydia Amber Rose

I do love Rose, but the names a bit of a no-no in our family, I won't go into details but there was rose who caused a bit of trouble with my mum when we were younger!

Grace is lovely too.

Will show DH these suggestions later, hopefully something will at least interest him! hmm grin
