Father's name for daughter's middle?

My husband and I are expecting our first child in [name_u]January[/name_u]! We are naming her [name_f]Lilias[/name_f] but we’re having trouble choosing a middle name.

What do you think of using my husband’s first name as her middle name? I’m not a huge fan of naming a son after his father (as a junior), but I think it’s a sweet idea for a daughter’s middle name. It’s sort of traditional with a twist? Her name would be [name_f]Lilias[/name_f] [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] O’[name_u]Neil[/name_u].

Other names we like:
[name_f]Lilias[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f]
[name_f]Lilias[/name_f] [name_f]Hope[/name_f]

What do you think!? Thank you!

I think the name you are considering sounds great. The names flow beautifully. I also like [name_f]Hope[/name_f] a lot, but [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] works well.

Of the three, I actually like [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] best! Obviously it’s meaningful, and it goes really well with [name_f]Lilias[/name_f]. Go for it!

[name_f]Lilias[/name_f] [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] is amazing!

I normally don’t like this but [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] is unisex enough to where it is okay, imo.

Usually I wouldn’t, but [name_f]Lilias[/name_f] [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] sounds fantastic! [name_f]Lilias[/name_f] is so feminine and sweet, and actually a little frilly - but the unisex, spunky [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] balances it out! I love it!

I like it! [name_f]Lilias[/name_f] [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] has a lovely ring to it!

[name_f]Lilias[/name_f] [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] O’[name_u]Neil[/name_u] is perfect.

[name_f]Lilias[/name_f] [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] works well!!

I think it’d definitely depend a lot on Dad’s name, but in this case, with [name_u]Cameron[/name_u], I think it works very well. The very feminine [name_f]Lilias[/name_f] balances the more unisex [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] nicely, and with the special family meaning, [name_f]Lilias[/name_f] [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] O’[name_u]Neil[/name_u] is a beautiful name indeed.

I think it works. [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] is pretty unisex to me. While [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] isn’t my cup of tea on a boy or a girl, [name_f]Lilias[/name_f] [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] sounds fantastic!

[name_u]Cameron[/name_u] works perfectly with [name_f]Lilias[/name_f]!

I think it sounds great together!
If you really wanted to, you could add one of your other favorites to it, making it [name_f]Lilias[/name_f] [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] [name_f]Grace[/name_f].

I love it! I very nearly gave one of my girls her dad’s name as a middle (would have been [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] [name_u]Jay[/name_u]) and still kind of kick myself for not doing it.

I actually really like [name_f]Lilias[/name_f] [name_u]Cameron[/name_u], I think it is a beautiful sentimental combination.

I’m not typically a fan of Juniors/parents names on their kids. [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] is a nice name, but stylistically seems a little off with [name_f]Lilias[/name_f].
If you think it’s sweet and want to do it there’s nothing wrong with it, just wouldn’t be my choice with [name_f]Lilias[/name_f].

That being said, I do like [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] for the middle more than [name_f]Grace[/name_f] or [name_f]Hope[/name_f].

I love unexpected family honour names. Another vote for [name_u]Cameron[/name_u]!

Wow! I didn’t expect [name_f]Lilias[/name_f] [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] to be taken so well! My husband and I love it more now that we’ve heard your responses and we will most likely be naming her [name_f]Lilias[/name_f] [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] O’[name_u]Neil[/name_u]. Thank you for your help!

I really like it! They balance each other out well and in this case, dad’s name is perfectly unisex so I think it works just fine. :slight_smile:

[name_u]Cameron[/name_u] works well as a middle name!
