Can't think of a middle name for Monty, though DH thinks Monty Columbus would be good. Our other children are called Arabella Scarlett (Belle) and Jasper Emmanuel. What do you all think?

I think that Clementine is a beautiful name, but that Clementine Eugenie is a bit of a mouthful.

I don't like Monty.

I have a Clementine, we love it. It's still fairly unusual, though there are a few more coming up. Bound to be the case with any pretty name though! Will Monty be short for something else? What about Sebastian or Edmund as a middle name?

I also don't really think it matters if middle names are long, better to choose a name you love than a different name just because it's shorter.

I like Monty - but would use Montgomery on the birth certificate.

Clementine is nice, but the nicknames - Clem, Clemmie etc. don't sound that nice imo.

This is mangling your girl names in with your boy names a bit, but Eugene Clement sounds really nice (to me).

I like Clementine but it doesn't really gel with Eugenie, IMO.

Monty Ambrose?
Monty Cosmo?

Agree with bonsoiranna about Clementine Eugenie. Clementine very pretty, but a bit too much with Eugenie.

Not keen on Monty, though I suppose Monty Don (ie the person, not the name) is rather lovely. It sounds a bit like a dog's name to me though.

I loved Clementine too but would have used Cleo as a nn

and am afraid Clementine Eugenie is a bit too much - could you save Eugenie for a next DD?!?

what about
Clementine Beatrice
Clementine Cecelia
Clementine Celeste
Clementine Elisabeth
Clementine Josephine
Clementine Cordelia
Clementine Penelope
Clementine Imogen
Clementine Ismay

Monty George
Monty Hector
Monty Reuben
Monty Gideon
Monty Nathaniel

lordy, Monty is a hard one to go with!

Monty Raphael

I think animal names are the best! If I have another DS I think he might be Rex...

Hey, Monty Rex is great! Or Mortimer Rex?

Thanks girls - some great suggestions there that I would never have thought of. Monty is very very hard to go with!!

dizzydixies Wed 26-Aug-09 16:54:40

Clementine Violet
Clementine Seraphine

Monty Flynn?
Monty Bryn
Monty Jack

can you tell I've been thinking about this lol

I don't like either of them.

I certainly wouldn't use Columbus as a middle name for Monty.

I love your other dc's names though.They're beautiful.

Monty Beau?

weaselbudge Wed 26-Aug-09 17:25:29

We're probably going to go with Monty James

MamaLazarou Wed 26-Aug-09 19:42:12

Monty? excellent

prefer Clemency to Clementine and wouldn't match with Eugenie
Monty can only be Withnail and I reference for me (or a new black labrador I've met recently, belonging to massive Withnail fan)
