Middle names for Amelia?
53

Hi,

We've settled on Amelia as a first name. I know it's popular which might put a lot of people off, but we haven't found anything else that we prefer.

We're stuck on a middle name, with little one due in 3 weeks. Current options are:

Amelia Rose
Amelia Alice

We have quite a long surname (9 letters) which is nature sounding, and like pretty feminine names.

Which middle name do people prefer, or does anyone have any other suggestions?

Not Amelia Rose. Giving one of the most common first names with one the most common middle names is kind of dull to me. I prefer Alice, although I'm not the biggest fan of -a A- names, as the two A sounds blend into each other.
Beatrice, Clio, Fern, Giselle, Juno, Lilac, Primrose, Tess

This was one of my worries with Rose as it's another common one.

I think I'm leaning towards Amelia Alice slightly, but did have some doubts about the AA initial (full initials would be AAG). Alice also has some family ties.

Another option we have is Amelia Elizabeth.

Elizabeth is mine and my mums middle names so I like that tie, but feel like the name Elizabeth is a bit dull 🤷🏼‍♀️

I agree with PP to avoid Amelia Rose, there must be hundreds of young girls with that combination of names. It just feels very bland. If you like floral names, maybe Iris, Daisy, Poppy or Violet could work?

I like Amelia Alice and Amelia Elizabeth.

Amelia Rose flows better but she may well be one of several Amelia Roses she knows.
I like Amelia Alice.
Amelia Elizabeth would be my favourite of those three.
How about:
Amelia Catherine
Amelia Kate
Amelia Lucy
Amelia Daisy
Amelia Tess
Amelia Polly

I always think middle names are so infrequently used that honouring someone else is more meaningful. A grandparent or aunt or godparent. I agree with another poster that Amelia Alice doesn't particularly flow but how often do you read your full name out?

Sorry but every Amelia will have Rose/Grace/May as a middle name as they’re the filler names for girls currently. So overused.

I like Amelia Alice, not sure Elizabeth quite flows. It’s a nice name, not dull at all.

Ha, my birth name was Alice Amelia. Alice was one of the most popular names that year and I subsequently changed to Amelia as there were so few back then that it was a more unique name.



The irony isn't lost on me that it's one of the most popular now.



When I changed to my married name I dropped Alice completely as I felt that changing to Amelia Alice was no good as it didn't flow.



Not sure if that helps. But you could always do Alice Amelia and use the second name 🤷‍♀️ you might find she swaps to Alice as it's more uncommon now 🤣



I feel like Lily and Rose are such common filler names. I'm a fan of doing something rather out there for a middle name, especially if using a common first name.



Depends what your last name is too! Not much goes with ours.
