As title says.

Esme Lynn (sister lynn)
Esme Rose (we just like it)
Esme Laura (grandma)
Esme Odette (late grandma)
Esme Anna (mothers middle name and first initial of surname Ann+A)

I like Esme Laura and Esme Rose the best..Rose seems to be a common middle name, don't know if that would put you off

KLG3101 Fri 16-Oct-15 20:48:13

Thank you! Appreciate reply. Other two options

ESME JAMES (late father)
ESME VALENTINE (when we met - V day!!)

Oh my gosh Valentine is absolutely beautiful & original. I know a lot of little girls with Rose as a middle name which would personally put me off. I'm all for different names with meanings & I think Valentine is adorable grin

I like Esme Valentine. So different smile my goddaughter has Rose as her middle name, I know a few with it.

Oh me too I LOVE Valentine. When I was younger and poppy wasn't popular I dreamed of having a little girl called Poppy Valentine!

Like James for a girl too

Thank you girls! I'm swaying Valebtibe but what puts me off is someone said recently that it was 'chavy'. I work with lawyers who screw their nose up to it!!

Anything but Rose to be honest, it's just very overused as a middle name. Valentine is fab. On the assumption that either Laura and Odette would show preference for one side of the family or the other, then maybe skip those? Although Esme Laura flows quite nicely.

MajesticWhine Fri 16-Oct-15 21:02:16

Doesn't matter about chavvy really, it's a middle name. Maybe Valentina would be pretty instead?

Yika Fri 16-Oct-15 21:03:28

Laura, James or Valentine. All good!

TiredAssShowgirl Fri 16-Oct-15 21:05:36

Esme Valentine is really sweet actually. Would probably be what I'd go for.

I love Esme Odette as well - was my first choice before you posted about Valentine.

KLG3101 Fri 16-Oct-15 21:19:14

Thank you so much. I agree Rose is common and used a lot especially in my area now I've noticed, I just really like it. That said I'd prefer something not over used.

I think Valentina is more chavvy than Valentine but no idea whyconfused

AnotherEmma Sat 17-Oct-15 02:11:48

Esme Valentine! Lovely! And NOT chavvy angry

ejclementine Sat 17-Oct-15 08:35:14

Esme James is lovely!

KLG3101 Sat 17-Oct-15 08:41:55

Thank you ladies for taking the time to reply. My husband is not keen on Valentine but has given me the nod to pick whatever I want given baby girl will have his family surname (and he's super laid back wink )

Love love love Esme Valentine. It's not chavvy at all! Go for it.

scarednoob Sat 17-Oct-15 19:57:32

Scarednoob is a great name!!

Another vote for valentine here; all your choices are pretty but esme valentine has the nicest ring to it.

I'm a lawyer. Most lawyers have no taste. Ignore them!
