Our second child arrives in June and we’re going to be surprised by the gender! We’ve solidified our boy name, but still up in the air on a girl’s name and could use your help. The first question is on the spelling of the first name. Do you prefer Esmé or Esmée?
The second question is on the middle name. We have a top 3 list:
Esmé/Esmée Leigh - I’ve always loved Leigh as a middle name and it seems to work well with this first name.
Esmé/Esmée Roux - I like that both this first and middle name are of French origin and complement each other well.
Esmé/Esmée Rose - This is perhaps the most lovely sounding combination. However, I do wonder if Rose is too common a middle name and/or if the whole name together is over the top girly/frilly?
We would love to hear your thoughts/expertise! Thanks!
