Middle name for Rosamund

I’m expecting twins and though we don’t know their sexes yet, I am nearly set on girls names (not a clue on boys, but I’ll tackle that if we find out if there is any lol).

I am leaning heavily toward [name_f]Margot[/name_f] and [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f]. [name_f]Margot[/name_f] would have the mn [name_u]Adair[/name_u], which is a family name on my dh’s side (his mother, gmother AND ggmother’s mn). Our first daughter is [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]. Her mn is also quite important to us and a family name on my side (my aunt is [name_f]Kathy[/name_f], named for her gmother [name_f]Kathleen[/name_f]). If baby B is a girl as well I absolutely love the name [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f], but I’m stuck for a mn. I would like very much to name her for my grandmother, [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] [name_f]Sue[/name_f], but she HATES her name with a passion and I don’t particularly care for how either name sounds with [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] either. I can think of plenty of names that sound lovely, but I’d feel almost guilty if we’ve given the other girls these meaningful family names and hers isn’t.

Any ideas on how to riff on [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] and/or [name_f]Sue[/name_f] that sound good with [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f]?

[name_f]Margot[/name_f] and [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] are both nicknames for [name_f]Margaret[/name_f]/[name_f]Marguerite[/name_f], so I wouldn’t recommend [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] with a sister [name_f]Margot[/name_f] (plus it doesn’t sound great). [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] [name_f]Sue[/name_f] sounds great, though. Or [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] [name_f]Susanne[/name_f]?

As [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] is a nickname for [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] and you already have [name_f]Margot[/name_f] covering that, I might try to find a way to get [name_f]Sue[/name_f] in there.

…or maybe go with an S middle name: [name_f]Sabina[/name_f], [name_f]Sadie[/name_f], [name_f]Sara[/name_f], [name_f]Selina[/name_f], [name_f]Sophie[/name_f], [name_f]Sophronia[/name_f], [name_f]Stella[/name_f], [name_f]Sybil[/name_f], [name_f]Sybilla[/name_f], [name_f]Sylvia[/name_f], Sylvi

… and you can always honour somebody in another way than through their name, maybe your grandmother’s favourite author or composer or book character, colour, city, etc.

My personal favourite middle name for [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] is [name_f]Clara[/name_f]; from the above ideas my favourite combos would be [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] Zuza and [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] [name_f]Sybil[/name_f].

I had thought about that, and definitely wouldn’t use [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] as is anyway. It’s a lovely name, but as I said my grandmother hates it (she goes by her mn [name_f]Sue[/name_f]) and I don’t think it sounds good with [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f].

I love the idea of using a name that is important to her, though we typically keep our baby names a secret until birth.

I’m actually kind of wondering if I shouldn’t just use [name_f]Margot[/name_f] as the middle name and choose another first for [name_u]Baby[/name_u] A?

[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f], [name_f]Margot[/name_f] [name_u]Adair[/name_u] and [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] are gorgeous together!! I love [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] [name_f]Susannah[/name_f]

You are kind of already honoring her with the name [name_f]Margot[/name_f] since [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] and [name_f]Margot[/name_f] are diminutives of [name_f]Margaret[/name_f]. If you want both names to honor her you could do [name_f]Margot[/name_f] [name_u]Adair[/name_u] and [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] [name_f]Lily[/name_f]. Since [name_f]Susannah[/name_f]/[name_f]Susan[/name_f] ([name_f]Sue[/name_f]) means lily. Or you could do [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] [name_u]Adair[/name_u] and [name_f]Margot[/name_f] Eloise. (I noticed [name_u]Eloise[/name_u] in your signature). You could also honor her by using the month she was born or her birthstone.

[name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] [name_f]Lily[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] [name_f]Susanna[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] [name_f]Selina[/name_f]

I really like [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] [name_f]Susannah[/name_f]! Great suggestion!

[name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] [name_f]Suzanne[/name_f]
