Have middle names but no first names! Any suggestions?

[name]Hi[/name]! This is my first post on this blog. My husband and I are expecting in the end of [name]April[/name], but we are choosing not to find out the gender of our baby. I already have an idea of what I want for middle names for either a boy or a girl. For a girl, I would like the middle name to be [name]Emogene[/name] in honor of my late grandmother. For a boy, the middle name will be [name]William[/name], which is my husbands name and is a family name as well. There’s also a possibility of having [name]Rita[/name] as a middle name for a girl since that’s the name of both of our living grandmothers, but I’m leaning more towards [name]Emogene[/name]. Does anyone have any suggestions for first names to go with these middle names???

If you want to honor [name]Rita[/name], what about [name]Margaret[/name] (the name [name]Rita[/name] actually comes from [name]Margaret[/name]) or [name]Marguerite[/name]? I think [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Emogene[/name] would be lovely.

[name]Matthew[/name] [name]William[/name]
[name]Joseph[/name] [name]William[/name]

I love the suggestion of [name]Marguerite[/name] [name]Imogene[/name] (I prefer this spelling - even though it is a family name - because of the [name]EMOgene[/name]). Others that would be pretty are [name]Matilda[/name] [name]Imogene[/name], [name]Helena[/name] [name]Imogene[/name], [name]Victoria[/name] [name]Imogene[/name], and [name]Abigail[/name] [name]Imogene[/name].

For a boy, nearly everything goes with [name]William[/name]! [name]Archer[/name] [name]William[/name], [name]Benjamin[/name] [name]William[/name], [name]Elias[/name] [name]William[/name], [name]Carson[/name] [name]William[/name], [name]Herschel[/name] [name]William[/name], [name]Holden[/name] [name]William[/name], etc. I would need more information about your style to comment further…

GOOD [name]LUCK[/name]!

[name]Ivy[/name] [name]Emogene[/name] (Oops! I just this was already suggested…I love it!)
[name]Margot[/name] [name]Emogene[/name]
[name]Mabel[/name] [name]Emogene[/name]
[name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Emogene[/name]
[name]Ruby[/name] [name]Emogene[/name]
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Emogene[/name]

I think that first names having two syllables sound great with [name]Emogene[/name].

[name]Charles[/name] [name]William[/name]
[name]Dexter[/name] [name]William[/name]
[name]Jude[/name] [name]William[/name]
[name]Leo[/name] [name]William[/name]
[name]Miles[/name] [name]William[/name]
[name]Milo[/name] [name]William[/name]
[name]Thomas[/name] [name]William[/name]

Good luck! :slight_smile:
