needs a middle name! We decided on [name]Annabel[/name] only a few months into my pregnancy, but we are now nearing the end and have no middle name. We are being incredibly indecisive, mostly b/c we really want to use a family name, but are not really in love with any of them. Our son’s name is [name]Henry[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] (both family names). We love that his name has meaning to us and our families. Below is a list of names we’ve considered and explanations of why they are on our list. Other suggestions on how to incorporate a fam name would be wonderful. We would SO appreciate any help.
[name]Quinn[/name] (my grandfather’s name was [name]Quintus[/name])
[name]Georgia[/name]/[name]Georgina[/name] (family name)
[name]Caroline[/name] (a name we love, but not a lot of family connection and seems like a mouthful)
[name]Violet[/name] (no family connection)
[name]Margaret[/name] (both have grandmothers with the name [name]Mary[/name]…so [name]Margaret[/name] is a derivative; any other [name]Mary[/name] suggestions?)
[name]Jean[/name] (my mother and grandmother’s middle name; dont’ really like it; any ideas on how to use in a different way?)
[name]Mae[/name] (my great-grandmothers name)
[name]Charlotte[/name] (another name we like and considered for a first name)
[name]Beatrice[/name]/[name]Beatrix[/name] (family name; but dh is not crazy about it)
Other family names that I love do not sound at all right with [name]Annabel[/name] (i.e. [name]Estella[/name]).
I cannot wait to get your advice!
