I love [name]Henrietta[/name] [name]Edith[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]. It has nice flow, I think it sounds great with [name]Adelaide[/name], and [name]Henrietta[/name] has so many nickname possibilities.

My husband and I considered [name]Harriet[/name] [name]Olive[/name] for a while, but then my husband pointed out that it can sometimes sound like Hairy [name]Olive[/name], which is kind of gross sounding. It ruined it for me, but I still think it’s really pretty in theory.

[name]Harriet[/name] [name]Olive[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] I like best, however, you might would switch that to [name]Harriet[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Olive[/name], because otherwise, it spells Hoe. Granted, it’s usually “ho” but kids won’t care.

I voted for [name]Henrietta[/name] because I love it. (On my own extended list).

Out of curiosity, what’s your reason for using [name]Elizabeth[/name] as a second mn for both girls? I assume you are honoring someone with it but I’d love to hear the story!

It’s my middle name! Something I can share with my daughter and my daughter can share that together as well :slight_smile:

The logic behind my vote:
[name]Henrietta[/name] [name]Edith[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] - goes great with [name]Adelaide[/name]. [name]Love[/name] [name]Henrietta[/name]. But [name]Edith[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] doesn’t flow so well. In the running.
[name]Harriet[/name] [name]Olive[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] - [name]Henrietta[/name] goes better with [name]Adelaide[/name]. But flows nicer. But I can’t stand [name]Olive[/name]. But that’s just right with [name]Sloane[/name]. In the running.
[name]Edith[/name] [name]Olive[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] - Not bad. Still don’t like [name]Elizabeth[/name] and [name]Edith[/name] together, and I don’t like [name]Olive[/name]. Out.
[name]Clementine[/name] [name]Edith[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] - great with [name]Adelaide[/name]. What is this [name]Edith[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]? And I don’t know how to pronounce [name]Clementine[/name]. (Like the fruit? Or with an een end?) Probably out.
[name]Edith[/name] [name]Henrietta[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] - [name]Edith[/name] [name]Olive[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] flows nicer. Out.

That leaves me with [name]Harriet[/name] [name]Olive[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] and [name]Henrietta[/name] [name]Edith[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]. [name]How[/name] about [name]Henrietta[/name] [name]Olive[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]? That would be my vote if it were an option. [name]Ah[/name] well. I guess I’ll vote for [name]Harriet[/name] [name]Olive[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name], so long as her nn is [name]Hattie[/name].

I voted [name]Harriet[/name] [name]Olive[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]. I really like [name]Adelaide[/name] and [name]Harriet[/name] together! Although if [name]Olive[/name] _____ [name]Elizabeth[/name] had been an option, that would have gotten my vote easily–I love [name]Adelaide[/name] and [name]Olive[/name] together! As they are, [name]Edith[/name] is by far my favorite but [name]Adelaide[/name] and [name]Edith[/name] (especially if they went by [name]Addy[/name] and [name]Edie[/name]) are far too close.
