Down to the wire..last thoughts on Middle Name for Scarlett

Ok, with your help I have spent the summer deciding on a name for my baby and we have choosen [name]Scarlett[/name]. It was such a relief to finally have a name that I haven’t really put much energy into making a final decision on a middle name. I posted some options a month and a half ago and I have narrrowed down the list. However, I don’t have anything final yet. I am due very soon…possibly days away. Let me know what you think of these options. I have made up a last name that somewhat mimics our true last name in syllables and feeling - DuMonde-[name]Anderson[/name].

  • [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]

[name]Ruth[/name] was my grandmother’s name. I love that [name]Ruth[/name] is short and classic sounding. It is also nice that it isn’t super popular. This probably is my top choice right now b/c of length and family meaning. The only thing I am worried about is that maybe the names are both too harsh? Does it sound too abrupt?

  • [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Eliana[/name]

My mom’s mn is [name]Elaine[/name] and my husband’s grandmother is [name]Ana[/name]. So, this would allow us to name after two people :slight_smile: But, not sure if it is too long with our last name and too over the top with [name]Scarlett[/name].

  • [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]June[/name]

If I didn’t really want to incorporate family, this is the one I would use. I like that [name]June[/name] is short and gives [name]Scarlett[/name] a soft feeling. Technically, my grandmother was born in [name]June[/name] but it seems like a stretch. I would have to explain how it is kind of a family connection.

So, I think it is down to those 3. What do you think? My son is [name]Julian[/name] [name]Ryder[/name]. Other family names are [name]Ana[/name], [name]Anne[/name], [name]Lee[/name], [name]Elaine[/name], [name]Ilene[/name], & [name]Karole[/name]. The two other names we strongly considered but nixed are [name]Annalee[/name] (seemed too long) and [name]Lee[/name] (too much of a tongue twister).

[name]Love[/name] [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]. [name]Love[/name] family names!

I like [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Ruth[/name] as well. I think [name]Ruth[/name] gives [name]Scarlett[/name] a little more oompf! :slight_smile: [name]Eliana[/name] might have too many syllables…

Definitely [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]!

I like [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]. I don’t think [name]Ruth[/name] is harsh sounding with [name]Scarlett[/name]. [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Anna[/name] would be pretty too.

personally I like:

[name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Eliana[/name]

As soon as I saw [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Ruth[/name] I thought this is the combo before I even saw the others.

My grandmother too was [name]Ruth[/name] and this name has enormous energy and good vibes for me. I love [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Ruth[/name] I don’t think it is harsh esp with the soft ‘th’.

Let us know what you decide on please and we would love to see your birth announcement here too.

Another vote to [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]. I love its vintage feel, and think it flows beautifully with your last names.

Best wishes to you! :slight_smile:

[name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Ruth[/name] is my first choice followed by [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Eliana[/name]. I do feel [name]Eliana[/name] might add to many syllables though. [name]How[/name] about just [name]Elena[/name]/[name]Elaina[/name]?
