Middle names?

Our second baby is arriving on 25th and we are trying to get sorted with names, nightmare!

If the baby is a girl I would like her to have 2 middle names, DH wants just 1.

Most of the females in my family have 2 middle names and I just like it.

The name I want is Lily Madeline Aurora.

I just love it, or should I settle for what DH wants, Lucy Madeline?

My DD has two middle names, as have I. What about Lucy Madeline Aurora (I like Aurora!) as a compromise? Lucy seems less popular than Lily, which I would see as an advantage...

Madeleine. With 3 Es.

Your DH might find 2 middle names easier to accept if one is shorter- "Madeline Rose" or "Aurora May", for example. Or maybe compromise on Lucy instead of Lily in return for two middle names. Hormonal pregnant sobbing also worth a try grin

Madeline is after my Mum, so non-negotiable and thats how she spells it.

I really like Madeline Rose.

I may have to work on DH!

I gave my DD 3 names, but my DS's only have 2.

Funny you say that, I said to DH earlier that I wouldn't give a boy 2 middle names. DS has 1 middle name and we have chosen 1 if this baby is a boy too, will be easier if it is as we chose boys' names no bother!!

Oddly, my brothers have 1 middle name each and my sister and 1 have two each. Is it 'cos girls names are so pretty parents have to try and use as many as they can?

I think you might be right!

I love Aurora, but wouldn't use it as a first name and want to use my Mum's name too. So it has to be relegated to 3rd name! I really want to use it though sad

Neither DH, nor I, nor either of our DSs have a middle name. Sorry - not meaning to high jack your thread!

But after reading your thread it's suddenly occurred to me that this might be quite unusual.

Sorry <pours another G&T>

There's the name Aure which means breeze.

Or "Madeleine Dawn" with the same meaning as Aurora

One of my brother's and my DH have no middle name.

I always wondered why.

Hijack away, I'm not precious! grin

Aurora rocks.

I have no middle name and always felt a bit short changed.
