Trouble choosing a name

[name]Hi[/name] everyone,
We are closing in on our due date and we are not set on a name.
Any thoughts are MUCH appreciated:

My DH’s faves:
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Marie[/name]
(I like [name]Rose[/name], do not love [name]Marie[/name] in this case. Here [name]Marie[/name] sounds kind of boring and old to me, AND our last name s.l. [name]Roberts[/name]. Still not sold on alliteration “R.R.” A good, more fresh mn could make the alliteration more tolerable for me perhaps? Either way I think we need a strong, usable mn if we went with [name]Rose[/name] [name]Roberts[/name]. Middle name ideas with [name]Rose[/name] [name]Roberts[/name]?)

My faves:
*[name]Victoria[/name] (possible mn: [name]Lauryn[/name])
Hawley (my middle name pronounced [name]Holly[/name])
[name]Kinna[/name] (a family name. pronounced Kee-na, [name]Tina[/name] with a “K”)

I am more flexible with MN’s on my name list.

Thank you!

From your lists, I like [name]Rose[/name], [name]Camille[/name], and [name]Holly[/name] (but I like it spelled the traditional way - I know the spelling you suggested comes from your own middle name, but if you plan on using it as a first name, I would change the spelling to avoid pronunciation issues and to make it look more like a formal name).

I also think you should consider some variations of [name]Rose[/name], like [name]Rosalind[/name].

[name]Rosalind[/name] [name]Gail[/name] [name]Roberts[/name], is one suggestion that could work.

Some middle name suggestions:

[name]Rose[/name] [name]Elise[/name] [name]Roberts[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Camille[/name] [name]Roberts[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Annabel[/name] [name]Roberts[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Roberts[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Noelle[/name] [name]Roberts[/name]

[name]Camille[/name] [name]Simone[/name] [name]Roberts[/name]
[name]Camille[/name] [name]Audrey[/name] [name]Roberts[/name]
[name]Camille[/name] [name]Alexandra[/name] [name]Roberts[/name]

[name]Holly[/name] [name]Lorelei[/name] [name]Roberts[/name]
[name]Holly[/name] [name]Camille[/name] [name]Roberts[/name]
[name]Holly[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Roberts[/name]
[name]Holly[/name] [name]Caroline[/name] [name]Roberts[/name]

I like [name]Victoria[/name].

I also vote for [name]Victoria[/name]. I think it sounds great with a [name]Roberts[/name]-type last name.

[name]Amber[/name]: Here’s what [name]Pam[/name] and [name]Linda[/name] wrote about [name]Amber[/name]:

“Out of style now: try [name]Ruby[/name], [name]Jade[/name], or [name]Pearl[/name].”

I have to agree with them…[name]Amber[/name] honestly feels dated to me, reminding me of names like [name]Tiffany[/name].

[name]Rose[/name] [name]Marie[/name]: I absolutely love the name [name]Rose[/name] as a first name! :slight_smile:

[name]Rose[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] (oops…not with your last name because of the Ts)
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Julianne[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Marielle[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] (combines both of your favorites)

[name]Victoria[/name]: I think it’s very pretty, but I’m not much of a [name]Vicki[/name]/[name]Tori[/name] fan. (I do know one [name]Victoria[/name] who managed to go through life as just [name]Victoria[/name], and I think it’s a gorgeous name.)

It’s #27 now, which may or may not bother you. [name]Lauren[/name] (the yooneek y spelling looks trendy/misspelled to me) and [name]Victoria[/name] both have the same “or” sound, so when I say [name]Victoria[/name] [name]Lauren[/name] out loud, I hear a lot of “or.” From your list of middles, I think that [name]Victoria[/name] [name]Brooke[/name] and [name]Victoria[/name] [name]Camille[/name] sound beautiful.

[name]Victoria[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]

[name]Victoria[/name] [name]Louise[/name]
[name]Victoria[/name] [name]Marin[/name] (has [name]Lauren[/name]'s feel to me)
[name]Victoria[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]
[name]Victoria[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Victoria[/name] [name]Simone[/name]
[name]Victoria[/name] [name]Wynn[/name]

From your list, I really love [name]Rose[/name] [name]Victoria[/name].

Best wishes to you! :slight_smile:

Ooops! I forgot the rest of the list! :slight_smile:

[name]Camille[/name]: I think that [name]Camille[/name] is beautiful…

[name]Brooke[/name]: It feels pretty trendy to me, and I think some of your other names sound better with [name]Roberts[/name].

Hawley: I think it works as a middle name, but as a first name, I’m thinking she will encounter spelling problems.

[name]Kinna[/name]: I prefer some of your other names…

Good luck!

She pronounces it [name]Mary[/name]-elle.

I think it’s so elegant!
