_____ Josephine, To honour a dearly loved grandmother :)

Hello, just found out we’re having a girl!!! Super excited!!
I have a dearly loved grandmother named [name]Josephine[/name] (though she goes by [name]Joan[/name]) and hubby and I have both agreed that [name]Josephine[/name] would be a lovely middle for our little girl. We’re of Scottish and Irish decent so a Celtic first would be lovely though not strictly necessary (Living in southern [name]England[/name] currently). So far I’m in love with [name]Alys[/name] and most forms of [name]Rose[/name] though none of them have really popped for me yet. Any suggestions? Thank you!

[name]Rose[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] sounds pretty perfect to me! What about these…

My best friend is [name]Adriana[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] and I love that combination! So lovely.

[name]Alys[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] is beautiful and unique (at least to me!). I’d say go with that!

[name]Meghan[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] is one I really like.

Lately the name Etain has grown on me.

Etain [name]Josephine[/name]?

Without looking at pp’s, my top two favorites are:

[name]Maeve[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]

[name]Alys[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] is so pretty. I never know anyone name [name]Alys[/name] so it’s also very unique to me.

I think these all sound lovely

[name]Miriam[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Vivian[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Meredith[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]

[name]Maeve[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
Rosamind [name]Josephine[/name] (love!)
[name]Adalynn[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Arielle[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
Aryella [name]Josephine[/name]

I hope this helps:)

[name]Phoebe[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]???
I know it’s not scottish, but it’s my sisters name and I think it is quite pretty.

[name]Diana[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] is lovely to me. But I’m not sure how much [name]Diana[/name] is used in the UK after [name]Princess[/name] [name]Diana[/name]…

[name]Alys[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] doesn’t sound so great in my opinion. Neither does [name]Rose[/name] or [name]Rosa[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]. I think it’s the repetition of the syllables.

Some possibilities:

[name]Tabitha[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Clara[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Hannah[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]

[name]Rosalie[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Rosette[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Rosabelle[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
Rosiana [name]Josephine[/name]

[name]Alys[/name] is [name]IMO[/name] not as pretty as the classic [name]Alice[/name]

[name]Alice[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] is so beautiful. :slight_smile:

[name]Rosalyn[/name]…But I love [name]Ava[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]

My six-week-old is named [name]Maeve[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] and we love it! We’ve gotten a lot of compliments too :slight_smile:

I’ve liked [name]Nell[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] for a while now. [name]Alys[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] is very pretty as well. I also second [name]Primrose[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] or Prim [name]Josephine[/name]. Gorgeous!
