Stuck for a girl's name for #3!


We are expecting baby #3 and will find out the gender in a couple of weeks. We have several names we agree on for boys but none for a girl. I am absolutely in love with [name_f]Minnie[/name_f] but my partner isn’t fond of it at all. He likes more popular names like [name_f]Lily[/name_f], [name_f]Ava[/name_f], and [name_f]Imogen[/name_f]. We also have a middle name dilemma. If it’s a boy, he will have his father and grandfather’s middle name- [name_m]Knight[/name_m]. If it’s a girl, I have always said her middle name would be [name_u]Jude[/name_u], as a nod to my late grandmother. However, as we plan on this baby being our last, my partner wants to give a girl both [name_m]Knight[/name_m] and [name_u]Jude[/name_u] as middle names- which I am really not keen on and am struggling to work out a compromise. They are both quite masculine and it feels all a bit of a mouthful.
Our older boys are [name_m]Edison[/name_m] Brave and [name_u]Spencer[/name_u] [name_m]Ace[/name_m].
Any help would be really appreciated!

Aw I really like [name_f]Minnie[/name_f] and it would sound lovely with either mn [name_f]Minnie[/name_f] [name_m]Knight[/name_m], [name_f]Minnie[/name_f] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]. Is him picking the mn and u the fn an option? I love [name_f]Minnie[/name_f] [name_m]Knight[/name_m].
Some suggestions for other first names…

If [name_f]Imogen[/name_f] is popular, you can’t be in the U.S. - it’s never ever been in the top 1000 here! I think it’s beautiful and Shakespearian. [name_m]Just[/name_m] free-associating from the names you both like:

[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] ([name_f]Tillie[/name_f])

I have two middle names (a regular classic female name and my mother’s maiden name) and it is kind of a pain. I vote for picking one.

What about [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]? I know it’s really popular but you can use [name_f]Minnie[/name_f] as a nickname. I believe [name_f]Minnie[/name_f] [name_m]Driver[/name_m]'s birth name is [name_f]Amelia[/name_f].

[name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]
[name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_m]Knight[/name_m]

I think [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_u]Jude[/name_u] works best.

I also think [name_f]Minnie[/name_f] [name_m]Knight[/name_m] would be extremely cute! Very lovely.


[name_m]How[/name_m] about [name_f]Judith[/name_f] [name_m]Knight[/name_m] or [name_f]Judi[/name_f] or Judea?

As previous poster said, could you pick one name and have him pick the other?

[name_f]Ava[/name_f] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]
[name_f]Lily[/name_f] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]
[name_f]Imogen[/name_f] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]

[name_f]Minnie[/name_f] [name_m]Knight[/name_m]

I think all of these options all actually sound really nice and work well with your boys’ names.

Any chance he would like [name_f]Minnie[/name_f] as a nn for another name?

Other ideas…

some more nn type names could be used on their own or with a full version
[name_f]Ginny[/name_f] - [name_f]Imogen[/name_f], [name_f]Ginevra[/name_f], [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f], [name_f]Geneva[/name_f], [name_f]Virginia[/name_f]
[name_f]Millie[/name_f] - [name_f]Amelia[/name_f], [name_f]Millicent[/name_f], [name_f]Mila[/name_f], [name_f]Emily[/name_f]
[name_f]Evie[/name_f] - [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f], [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u], [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f]
[name_f]Liv[/name_f] - [name_f]Lavinia[/name_f], [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], [name_f]Olive[/name_f]
[name_f]Mamie[/name_f] - [name_f]Amelia[/name_f], [name_f]Mary[/name_f], [name_f]Margaret[/name_f], [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f], [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f], [name_f]Miriam[/name_f]

[name_f]Sadie[/name_f] - [name_f]Sara[/name_f], [name_f]Isadora[/name_f]
[name_f]Hattie[/name_f] - [name_f]Henrietta[/name_f], [name_f]Harriet[/name_f]

I like [name_f]Minnie[/name_f] [name_m]Knight[/name_m] the best.
Double middle names aren’t too big a deal as it is just another initial at the end of the day. Easy to please everyone.

[name_f]Minnie[/name_f] KJ [name_m]Smith[/name_m]
[name_f]Minnie[/name_f] K [name_m]Smith[/name_m]

I love [name_f]Minnie[/name_f] [name_u]Jude[/name_u].

I agree that [name_m]Knight[/name_m] and [name_u]Jude[/name_u] don’t flow that well as double middles. It seems like he already had two chances to use [name_m]Knight[/name_m] on your two sons, so it can’t really be that important to him? Though I’ll admit [name_f]Imogen[/name_f] [name_m]Knight[/name_m] is cute. Would you consider [name_f]Judith[/name_f] [name_m]Knight[/name_m] nn [name_u]Jude[/name_u]?

Some suggestions…
[name_f]Esther[/name_f] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]
[name_f]Eugenie[/name_f] [name_m]Knight[/name_m]
[name_f]Henrietta[/name_f] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]
[name_f]Leonie[/name_f] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]
[name_f]Maisie[/name_f] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]
[name_f]Mina[/name_f] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]
[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]
[name_f]Willa[/name_f] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]

I love the name [name_f]Antonia[/name_f]. Name your baby that if it’s a girl. [name_f]Antonia[/name_f] means ‘priceless’. It’s so graceful. It reminds me of peace, happiness and of a girl with a big heart. It’s so beautiful and stronger than other feminised boys names. It’s my favourite name and i wish it was my name. Everyone i know loves this name.I can honestly say i have never come across anyone who does not like it.
