Lily Josephine Cruise or Lily Catherine Cruise? Please help!!!

Sorry for all the posts, but I need your help! Which do you like better and why? At first I thought [name]Catherine[/name], but I think maybe it’s too plain or overly used? I like how [name]Josephine[/name] is a strong name that balances with the feminity of [name]Lily[/name]. We could call her “[name]Lily[/name] [name]Jo[/name]” for fun when she’s a baby, not an official nickname though.

[name]Love[/name] [name]Lily[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]. However I think both middle names would work. Whatever you choose will be great!

I personally like the idea of [name]Lily[/name] [name]Cate[/name] better, but [name]Catherine[/name] is quite used in the middle.
[name]Lily[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] is more striking. It really depends on what you like more in terms of feel. I like [name]Lily[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] more, but at the same time I really like the appeal of [name]Lily[/name] [name]Josephine[/name].

[name]Lily[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]! Beautiful!!

I really love both - but I think [name]Lily[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] is super spunky.

I love the idea of [name]Lily[/name] [name]Cate[/name] as a nn for [name]Lily[/name] [name]Catherine[/name], but I just adore [name]Lily[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] as a combo–so pretty, sweet, dainty, and regal all at once. It definitely gets my vote!

I prere [name]Lily[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] [name]Cruise[/name], as it has a great flow and I just generally prefer [name]Catherine[/name] to [name]Josephine[/name]. Also [name]Lily[/name] [name]Cate[/name] is cute! But there isn’t anything wrong with [name]Lily[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] and [name]Lily[/name] [name]Jo[/name] is also cute.

i like [name]Lily[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]. it sounds classical and noble. i think it’s well-balanced between sweet and dignity. but lily josephine is also pretty and lovely too. i like the name lily:)

[name]Lily[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]! For some reason ’ -[name]Catherine[/name] [name]Cruise[/name]’ sounds akward to me. I think it’s the two hard 'c’s. [name]Lily[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] is soooo cute!

josephine…it makes the name slightly more unique

Although I much prefer [name]Josephine[/name] to [name]Catherine[/name] in general, I really feel like [name]Lily[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] has a better flow. Either would be beautiful choices!

I like [name]Josephine[/name] and [name]Catherine[/name], but [name]CATHERINE[/name] sounds best in this case. I’ve noticed that [name]Catherine[/name] as a middle name enhances almost any one- or two-syllable first name. The other day, someone described [name]Catherine[/name] as “regal,” and I totally agree. It is a substantial, well-grounded, classy, and beautiful name. So, I vote for [name]Catherine[/name].

Wow, thank you for your responses! I do agree that [name]Catherine[/name] is more distinguished and classy, and flows better. [name]Josephine[/name] is very pretty too, I like the name a lot, but not sure if it fits as well with [name]Lily[/name]. This is so difficult! I guess I just have to sit with them longer. I feel middlenames are so hard with [name]Lily[/name], since [name]Lily[/name] is a shorter name. I’m used to longer names so it’s easier to find a middle name.

[name]Lily[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] sounds so much better and more original in my opinion! It flows wonderfully and does balance out the femininity of [name]Lily[/name] as you said. [name]Lily[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] isn’t bad, but a little plain for my taste.
