My mother is a Joan; she's in her mid 60s and has spent my 30+ years on this earth complaining about her name. I'm named after her sister. I'm a Jeanne. She always wished she was a Jeanne, instead....
Alice Magnolia is beautiful.

Too matchy matchy in my opinion. I like @fairchild recommendation of Rosemary and Annabel and Annemarie and Rosalind.
Thank you, ladies. Those are my top three, too. Maybe it'll be a split second decision.
DH and I have been trying select a middle for Susannah for years. Now approaching my 2nd trimester, the need to choose is "real". The name will honor my late grandmother, Marie Jeanne (Mary Jane),...
Cecily. I like Ottilie and its cute nicknames but can't help but hear "oddity" when I say it.

Love Sybil and the previous suggestion of Sybil Rosalie. I, too, would use the Sybbie nn over Billie. I find Sybil light, feminine but with a serious undertone.
Hallie is a favorite of mine! Just lot it.
Chloe is cute but doesn't have that vintage, airy feel that Hallie has.

Interesting. A close friend of mine's daughter is Emmeline - Em - uh - line. I haven't met another Emmeline so I don't know it any different. All of our friends started calling her Emme right off the...

Thank you or the suggestions. Love Manon, Margot, Maire (is this said My-ra?), Marin and Maren. I was worried about too many 'n' s in the name since our surname ends in 'n' but those names work well...

DH and I still in search of a middle name for first name Susannah to honor my grandmother, Marie Jeanne (Mary Jane) who was French / French Canadian and was born and passed in the month of October....

Funny. Top choice for me would be susannah margaret. Of your options, Margaret Sylvie.

Margaret Anne. I like how you've still combined both grandmothers into the nn, but "Meg" is also adorable in its own.

Luke or Jack. I've never been a fan of Liam. I think the "k" sound at the end of both Luke and Jake help separate it from a 1-syllable surname so that they two don't completely blend into one name....
My niece is 'Lainey' after Grandmother 'Elaine'. I call her 'Lain' often, only because it's easier to say quickly. But I've also thought of 'Lane' as a very masculine, likable name for a boy.

Bridget. Love Bridget. I think Margot and Bridget have very different 'personalities'. Bridget is fun loving, spunky and sweet while Margot is more refined, chic and demure. Both pretty names, but I...

Everett and Ansel are my favorites. Both handsome names.
Oddly enough, I grew up with a Soren who was a girl therefore always think of this name as feminine.
My DH and I are months away from TTC. And we are already set on our boys name and the first name for a girl - Susannah.
Which middle to honor my late grandmother Marie Jeanne/Mary Jane? She was...

Thank you. I feel like everyone eventually gets a nn in his or her life. Was hoping to just get a head start so that doesn't turn out to be Gus or Auggie. If it ever comes the time, I'm sure my...

If my husband and I have one son, he will be Nathaniel Bennett. If we have two sons, we really like August. Problem is, I'm not a fan of nn Gus or Auggie. We planned to call him August (Jameson or...
Definitely Cash-uss, which sounds very strong and masculine in my opinion. Cass-e-us makes me think of the girl's name Cassie.

Love Greta and Hazel.
Svea said "Svay-ah" or "Svee-ah"? I like the former.
Don't like Ingrid (hear 'Ingrate') or Geneva (but I like Genevieve, nn Evie).
Another vote for Rose as the first. Although, I'm a huge fan of the nn "Libby" if you opted for Elizabeth! Both beautiful choices.

I'm on the Isobel bandwagon, as well. It makes the name more sophisticated than frilly, although equally as feminine and romantic.
Wesley nn Wes
Everett nn Rett
Gwyneth nn Gwen/Gwennie
Juliette nn Lettie
