Due in 5 weeks! HELP!

I like [name]Claire[/name]. It goes well with [name]Anna[/name]. [name]Both[/name] of your middle name suggestions work, but I’m not good at thinking up suggestions.

[name]How[/name] about [name]Alexis[/name] to get to [name]Allie[/name]? [name]Anna[/name] and [name]Alexis[/name] is bit of a mouthful, though.

Not crazy about [name]Averie[/name].

[name]Claire[/name] is my favorite from your list, and [name]Lily[/name] would be my second choice - I do think that [name]Allie[/name] is a bit informal as a full name, and [name]Averie[/name] doesn’t seem as classic or timeless as [name]Anna[/name].

[name]Both[/name] of your [name]Claire[/name] combos are nice - [name]Claire[/name] [name]Alexandra[/name] would be a bit more distinctive, as [name]Elizabeth[/name] is popular for a middle name. Does one sound better with your last name? Also, what is [name]Anna[/name]'s middle name?

[name]Claire[/name] [name]Amelia[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Cecilia[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Helena[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Isabel[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Isabella[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Julia[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Juliet[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Katherine[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Louisa[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Madeline[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Natalie[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Olivia[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Penelope[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Susannah[/name] - to honor a [name]Sue[/name]?
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Victoria[/name]

Good luck! :slight_smile:

[name]Hi[/name]! I’m due in 4 weeks :slight_smile: [name]September[/name] babies are the best!

My name is actually [name]Anna[/name] too, hehe. Plus I have a sister called [name]Allie[/name] ([name]Alexandria[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]) and I’m [name]Anna[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name]. I always hated my m/n as a child and pretended it was [name]Rose[/name], but I’ve grown to like it more and more as I’ve got older.

Okay…I like:

[name]Allie[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Alexandra[/name].
[name]Lily[/name]-[name]Sue[/name] is kinda cute in a childish way. I think the other names age much better.


Give [name]Allie[/name] a formal name : [name]Alexandra[/name]/[name]Alexandria[/name]/[name]Alexa[/name]/[name]Alexis[/name]/[name]Alice[/name]

[name]Alexandra[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] ([name]Allie[/name] [name]Cate[/name]!) or [name]Alexandra[/name] [name]Katharine[/name] ([name]Allie[/name] [name]Kate[/name])
[name]Alexandra[/name] [name]Isabel[/name]
[name]Alexandra[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name]
[name]Alexandra[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Alexandra[/name] [name]Faith[/name]
[name]Alexandra[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name]
[name]Alexandra[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Alexandra[/name] [name]Belle[/name]
[name]Alexandra[/name] [name]Scarlett[/name]
[name]Alexandra[/name] [name]Hazel[/name]
[name]Alexandra[/name] [name]Gisele[/name]

[name]Claire[/name] [name]Olivia[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Penelope[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Aurora[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Madeline[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Violet[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Amelia[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Gabrielle[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Louisa[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Eloise[/name]
[name]Claire[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

[name]Lily[/name] seems very baby like to me! Cute but childish. I like it with playful sweet middle names, but I suppose you could balance it out by giving [name]Lily[/name] a classic strong middle name.

[name]Lily[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Lily[/name] [name]Belle[/name]
[name]Lily[/name] [name]May[/name]
[name]Lily[/name] [name]Katharine[/name]
[name]Lily[/name] [name]Beth[/name]
[name]Lily[/name] [name]Eliza[/name]
[name]Lily[/name] [name]Georgina[/name]
[name]Lily[/name] [name]Violetta[/name]
[name]Lily[/name] [name]Claudia[/name]

Good luck to you!

Funny. My husband likes [name]Alexis[/name] and dislikes [name]Averie[/name]. He’s not a fan of [name]Claire[/name] either. I’m not opposed to [name]Alexis[/name]. I seem to like [name]Alex[/name] better, but will there be gender confusion?
Thanks for the input!

Last name: [name]Tobey[/name]


My [name]Anna[/name] is [name]Anna[/name] [name]Katherine[/name]. Funny! She is also a [name]September[/name] baby, so I’ll have two in [name]September[/name].I like your name too. If I had not done [name]Katherine[/name] as a mn for [name]Anna[/name], it would be my #2’s first name ([name]Kate[/name]).
Great suggestions!
Good luck to you! [name]Hope[/name] it goes fast!


Thank you for your thoughtful suggestions too!
