Esme Ruby is enough. Angel is usually a boy's name.

I like it, other than it spelling ear with the initials. Maybe have a think about that.
Angel is definitely a girls name here, I know 3 under 5!

EAR won't be the complete initials though as I presume she will have a last name Hmm

I don't like the name OP but that's just because it's not my taste. If you've decided just go with it. You'll never get a unanimous thumbs up on here.

Be aware there are 2 common pronunciations of Esme. Ez may and Ez mee.

Personally I'd ditch Angel... it feels a bit forced and tacky.

Esme and Ruby are pretty though. both fairly popular right now but not overused.

Are you naming her after your favourite films / TV shows?

Esme and Ruby just don’t seem to flow, or connect. Angel is not to my taste (none of them are really). Together all these names seem a bit scattered.

Aweful! Doesn't flow at all. Just like you couldn't make your mind up. Unless they're names after a family member then would make sense

Thanks for the thoughts. Didn't think about the initials, her last initial is W and no I am not naming after tv show/film. The name angel is after family.

I think it’s beautiful.
I love Angel.

If Angel is a family name then that beats any of us disliking it. We don’t know the family member you’re honouring so we don’t have the same affection for it. Esme is lovely and that’s what she’ll be going by day to day. Using a family name as a middle name is a sweet idea.

Thank you that is lovely, to your earlier comment, I was going with ez-may.

Family names are lovely imo. If you want that pronunciation would you consider Esmae? I think it looks prettier somehow and makes it more obvious with how to say it.
Could swop the middle names around to avoid the ear thing?
Esmae Ruby Angel sounds nicer to me.
I like all your names.

Esmé possibly? Though getting an accent on typed forms can be a pain. Ez May is the more usual pronunciation in any case.

I like Esme and Ruby, but Angel not so much.

Don’t spell it Esmae, whatever you do (as per a PPs suggestion).
