Help Finishing Up!

We are TTC number 2 and would like to have a name picked out to call the baby as soon as we find out the gender, to make it more real to our son.

We have two amazing first names picked out, but need some help with middles. Our options-

[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f]
[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Louisa[/name_f]
[name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f]
[name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f]

[name_f]Louise[/name_f] is a family name on both sides, which is why we would like to honor it. I much prefer [name_f]Louisa[/name_f] though, which only matches with [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f], and I feel like maybe it’s a mouth full? My husband prefers [name_f]Cora[/name_f] over [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] but we both feel like [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f] seems a little ‘old’. And [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] has no meaning to it (our son has a meaningful middle name so we’d like our next child to as well), so it seems odd as a middle name.

We also like [name_u]June[/name_u] as a middle, but again, no meaning to it. Other meaningful options include [name_f]Kate[/name_f] (long used in my family but we don’t like it with either of our choices) or a nature name.

She would also have a Hawaiian middle name, so we can only pick one of these.

Help, opinions, suggestions?

I like:
[name_f]Louisa[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Louisa[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]
[name_f]Louisa[/name_f] [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f].
In that order!

[name_u]Love[/name_u] the name [name_f]Cora[/name_f] too but only [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f] (which you think sounds old) and [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u] (which doesn’t have meaning)

Wow, [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] and [name_f]Cora[/name_f] are gorgeous names. I really love [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Louisa[/name_f] from your list due to your explanation of it. I’m also big on compromise or “getting the best of both worlds” so I’m partial to [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f]–and her middle can still be special and meaningful as [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] (after all, it was special enough for you to choose it as a first name).

[name_m]Will[/name_m] this be your last child? If so, go with [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f]. If you plan on having another child later down the line, go with [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Louisa[/name_f].

[name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] and [name_f]Louisa[/name_f]! [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Louisa[/name_f] does trip me up a bit though, with all the L sounds. So my favorite is [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f]. I would say it sounds “vintage” not necessarily old as a bad thing. I really like the suggestion of [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f], actually, if that is an option. Finally, I think [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] is really sweet and adorable :slight_smile: Though I like alliterated names, so that’s a bonus to me!

I think [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f] is gorgeous. [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] could be another option as well. [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] is nice, but I don’t love it. I also absolutely adore [name_u]June[/name_u]. [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u] is cute, but I feel like [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f] has a more regal feel. And while it’s not one of your top two, I think [name_u]June[/name_u] [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] is beyond gorgeous.

[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f] would get my vote.

I think [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Louisa[/name_f] sounds perfectly fine, especially if you are adding a Hawaiian middle name as well.

[name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]

Thanks everyone! I do love the sound of [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] but since it doesn’t have any particular special meaning I am not sold on it. It will likely be our last child.

I guess [name_u]June[/name_u] could be considered sort of a nature name, so it is a little more meaningful. I do love [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]. So that makes the list of possibilities-

[name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]
[name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f]
[name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f]

[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Louisa[/name_f]
[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f]

I feel like my [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] combos
don’t have the ‘cutesy/vintage’ feel I’m looking for. And [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] doesn’t have it either. I love [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f] and [name_f]Cora[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u] but i feel like I just can’t let go of [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f]! I wish I could find a middle name that sold me on it.

I wish we could use a double middle, but we already have a Hawaiian name so that would make three middle names!

[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] is lovely! I think I’d opt for [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] Lucrece or [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Lyra[/name_f], but [name_f]Louise[/name_f]/[name_f]Louisa[/name_f] is fine.

Sounds like [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] is the winner for you. [name_m]How[/name_m] about [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Eloise[/name_f]? [name_u]Love[/name_u] the flow of that and still honours [name_f]Louise[/name_f].
