... cos my brian has gone to mush

Dc will probably be Iona or Euan. We would like them to have an "English" (if there is such a thing) middle name. My other dcs' middle names are Hannah, Lucy and Lewis, to give you an idea of what we like.

Surname is one that goes well with most names

Fire away!!

Iona Mary

Euan Mark
Euan Felix

kerrymum, it's pronounced yew-an.

Hmm - nice names but we're after something a bit more traditional/popular I think. Where we live now Iona and Euan are not unusual names but if my dc ever goes back to England then they might find they stick out a lot. I'd like to give them the option of swapping to a less unusual name if they wanted (that was the thinking behind the other three anyway).

All suggestions appreciated !

Why dont you get your other DC to give the new baby it's middle name.

Miaou Mon 09-Jul-07 14:12:40

Honeyapple - that's what we did with ds and will certainly be doing it again! But I thought that some ideas would be helpful too

I like Euan James and had wondered about Iona May already.

Lol stargazing - I did wonder who was going to suggest "bicycle" or the like

hotcrumpets Mon 09-Jul-07 15:39:59

Iona Daisy

Euan Thomas

MrsMcJnr Mon 09-Jul-07 15:42:12

My DN is Thomas Euan because Euan Thomas is an athlete and they didn't want to use someone's name - just food for thought

saltire Mon 09-Jul-07 17:17:18

Will DC be Ewan, or Euan.
just curious as one of DS is called Ewan

Bouquetsofdynomite Mon 09-Jul-07 17:19:49

Iona Phoebe
Euan Adam

Miaou Mon 09-Jul-07 17:21:01
