    Thanks, everyone! I appreciate the comments! Still not sure what we're going to do - we may just end up seeing what she "looks" more like when she's born!

    Interesting that poll-takers strongly...

    Poll: Last poll for Adeline's middle name

    Our daughter is arriving next week, and while we know the first name will be Adeline, we haven't finalized the middle name yet.

    My husband had wanted two middle names, but I think we've agreed one...

    Thank you for your thoughts, everyone.

    Yeah, I don't quite get why he's more attached to the concept of two middle names than to two particular middle names! Makes little sense to me, especially...
  4. Thank you for the suggestion, kala_way. Adeline...

    Thank you for the suggestion, kala_way. Adeline is the first name - we're definitely not shortening that, as I don't like Adele at all. As for shortening the middles - that's a good idea, but...
  5. Need your advice - difference of opinion with husband on middle name(s)

    Our baby is due in about 2.5 weeks. We're all set with the first name - we both love it. We're having problems deciding on - not so much the middle name itself, but on how many middle names to use....

    lineylou - Adeline Susannah is lovely!! My own middle name is Susanne :) I'm hoping that people won't automatically go with the "lin" pronunciation, but we shall see!

    I don't like it at all. I agree with the above poster - it sounds too much like a medication, not to mention a made-up name.

    Thanks for your thoughts, everyone!! We're leaning toward Daisy or Fiona, I think. I happen to adore Matilda, but, while my husband likes it, he's not super into it. I still included it in the...

    Poll: Narrowing down Adeline's middle name

    I think (maybe?) we've narrowed it down to four middle name choices to go with Adeline (due in August). Adeline will be pronounced with the final syllable as "line," not "lin!" Which of these four...

    Yes, goldeng, he has vetoed many of the names in my signature! Still working on some of them, though...He seems to think that because Adeline is such an old-fashioned name (though he likes it), the...

    Adeline Petunia??

    After months of not wanting to discuss middle names for Adeline, my husband finally agreed to begin to talk about it. He told me why all the choices I had come up with weren't good, of course...

    Hmm...seems sort of made-up to me. Not that it doesn't have a pretty sound; I'm just not really into it. Arabella Victoria is lovely, though. What about Aveline as an alternative?

    I love it - but I agree with the above: everyone would just assume you said Amelia and you and your daughter would constantly be correcting people on the spelling. If you don't mind, that's one...

    Too close for sibling names, but I see absolutely no problem with mother + child with those names. Go for it! Julian is a wonderful name.

    Here in the US, I have on occasion heard kur-sten, but I would say the vast majority of people named Kirsten in the US pronounce it keer-sten.

    Oooh, I also love Wren for a boy, but that may be too feminine-sounding. I realize it goes against what I said above, about not using another nature name, but I really like it with Hickory!

    I think another super-natureish name would be too much with Hickory. I agree with some of the pp, who suggested using a "country"-sounding name.

    Silas and Winslow have already been suggested,...
