Final 2.....

Down to final 2 girls name combinations....

  1. Sofia Matilda
  2. Summer

Struggling with middle name for Summer, as Summer Matilda seems a bit clunky.
Any ideas for a middle name for Summer welcome, preferably something Spanish/Greek.

I actually think Sofia Matilda is far more of a mouthful than Summer Matilda as they're both 3 syllables long.

I prefer the spelling Sophia anyway so my vote goes for Summer Matilda. Or Sophie Matilda? That goes better than Sofia imo.

Or what about Matilda as a given name? Matilda Summer would be nice. Keeps the m's in both names further apart if that's what your're worried about with the flow of Summer Matilda?

Sofia Matilda is very clunky to me, sorry. Too many "ah" sounds one after another.

@BoleynMemories13 Thank you. I tend to call my children by their first and middle name, I just don't double barrel them. My view is there's no point giving middle name if you don't use it.
Sofia Matilda seemed to roll of the tongue better I thought. But it's really interesting for you to say Summer Matilda sounds better. I wanted to use the Spanish spelling of Sofia, as we have a holiday home there.

Both are lovely names!

I personally love Sofia Matilda best, so would choose that.

Summer also nice, though, and less commonly used. I think Summer Matilda sounds nice. Other ideas -

Summer Lucia (Lu - see -a)
Summer Isabella
Summer Olivia
Summer Nicole
Summer Estelle
Summer Celeste
Summer Elise

KirstenBlest · 04/02/2024 11:58

Not keen on Summer and Sofia/Sophia is overused. Anything Matilda is going to be a mouthful.

yeah this. Summer Matilda is fine and flows better.

IbizaToTheNorfolkBroads · 04/02/2024 12:07

What about Summer Sophia?

I was going to suggest Summer Lucia - lovely!

@Onelife2024 and @Mangotango39 You are both amazing, Summer Lucia is just divine. Definitely going on the list.

Summer Jayne?
Summer Marie?
Summer Layne?


I think both are nice, but I prefer Summer

MaloneMeadow · 04/02/2024 14:38

I adore Summer!

How about:
Summer Francesca
Summer Elena
Summer Emilia

MrsSkylerWhite · 04/02/2024 14:39

Summer Matilda is lovely

Or Summer Skye?

Hummusandstuff · 04/02/2024 14:44

Very unusual to call them by both names. You’d really shout ‘dinner’s ready Sofia Matilda’ up the stairs?!

That’s lovely that you like Summer Lucia - it does sound gorgeous!

@Hummusandstuff and @thebirdsarewatchingyoucarefully I equally find it strange people give their children a middle name then never use it.... But as far as I'm concerned each to their own. I'll continue using both names for my children.

Is it a family tradition?

galliverstravels · 04/02/2024 15:37

I like Matilda Summer, to me that rolls off the tongue best overall. It's really, really pretty and Matilda allows for more nickname options if she wishes when she's older than Summer would. But if you're intent on Summer as the Christian name then I'd maybe do Summer Matilda.

galliverstravels · 04/02/2024 15:38

Also- I use both names for my children as I agree OP why give a middle name if you don't use it. Never thought it was unusual haha

Eminybob · 04/02/2024 15:41

What about Summer Sofia? I know some people don't like alliterative names, but I think it sounds nice.

Applesandpears23 · 04/02/2024 15:45

Summer Joy?
Summer Alana?
Summer Skye?

Anonymous10987654321 · 04/02/2024 15:51

@galliverstravels I'm glad I've found someone else that doesn't think it's strange.
I really like Matilda Summer but a friend has a Matilda, so I feel I will have to ask permission to use.
Update shortlist is Matilda Summer/Summer Matilda or Summer Lucia.
