Eve Amalie would be my choice from your list.

memoo Sun 28-Jun-09 21:32:23

Alexandra is my favorite but DP really isn't keen, his favorite is Amalie

I think all of these are nice <helpful, eh?> I did wonder why they are all vowels - I sort of imagined that a vowel first name would need a consonant second name - two of my dc have a vowel beginning first name and both have consonant second name (sweeping generalisation)

What does your surname begin with?

CakeandFineWine Sun 28-Jun-09 21:33:44

Oh Eve Isobella here!!

My DC is Evie and middle name was hard we negotiated Megan?!

Eve Alyssa

Eve Alexis

Eve Abigail

Eve Elizabeth

Eve Scarlett

Eve Anna

I like Eve Isobella

btw, if i get off the fence for a mo, I think Alexandra is nice.

I don't like Amalie as a name tbh.

I like all of your other mn choices but I would point out that they all start with a vowel sound and Eve obv. ends in one. This will mean that when saying first and middle names people wil either add an odd pause between them or will add an "R" before the middle name. I know as I have this issue with the names I chose for dd.

CakeandFineWine Sun 28-Jun-09 21:35:33

LOL at gigglewitch I see your point vowel heavy, I had the same thoughts and conversations!

memoo Sun 28-Jun-09 21:35:44

Surname will be Thrower, We're getting married on saturday!!

Its funny because it never occured to me that they were all vowels

memoo Sun 28-Jun-09 21:36:43

Btw, Its a good point

memoo Sun 28-Jun-09 21:37:10

About all vowels that is

memoo Sun 28-Jun-09 21:37:52

Love Elizabeth Cookie but DD1 has that for a middle name

5inthebed Sun 28-Jun-09 21:38:03

So your DD's initials will be E-A-T OR E-A-R? Are you sure thats a good idea?

5inthebed Sun 28-Jun-09 21:38:33

Sorry, ignore the E-A-R. Had a brain fart there blush

memoo Sun 28-Jun-09 21:39:27

Oh yeah grin thats not good is it!

Ondine Sun 28-Jun-09 21:42:33

I like Eve Isobel, love that spelling of Isobel, so much nicer than the more frilly alternatives.

If you do choose Amalie shouldn't it be spelt Amélie. Amalie looks wrong to me?

Eve Mireille?
Eve Isidora?

gigglewitch Sun 28-Jun-09 21:43:05

omg - your poor dd - EAT grin (sorry for starting this bad train of thought)
Then again it was a close member of my family whose dd was very nearly HRH blush

Kotek Mon 29-Jun-09 06:18:49

Eve Amelie or Eve Alexandra.
(i think life may be made easier spelling it Amelie rather than Amalie)

If EAT worries you (it shouldn't really I think) go for Eve Amelie Alexandra. As Eve and Amelie are quite short you can get away with 2 middle names and the Amelie Alexandra bit sounds quite regal - I think there was a German princess with that name! Lots of people have 2 middle names.

Tambajam Mon 29-Jun-09 06:25:06

Isobel is a commonly used spelling but did you mean to go for Isobella rather than Isabella and Elenor not Eleanor? And not Amelie? Sorry to be pedantic. I like Kotek's idea.

angrypixie Mon 29-Jun-09 06:34:58

Too many vowels for me;

Eve Sylvie
Eve Tabitha
Eve Hannah
Eve Leah
Eve Georgia
Eve Grace
Eve Rose
Eve Iris (vowels I know - but pretty)

BonsoirAnna Mon 29-Jun-09 06:40:42

Eve is a very plain name, so IMO you should go for something a little more exotic as a middle name!

Madmentalbint Mon 29-Jun-09 07:02:54

Out of your suggestions I think I'd go for Eve Alexandra or Eve Isobel. I do think a name that doesn't start with a vowel might go better with Eve though.

What about Eve Martha?
