Would you rather have a middle name that
A) honours the place that your parents met (not something obvious like Vegas or Pub), is a surname that is also used for boys but not commonly at the...

First of all, it's a shame people commented at all on Gemma's name. It's a legitimate, lovely name and I think she'll enjoy not being an Emma or Jenna.
So I had the very same issue with baby #2....
To be honest, which is what you asked, it's a made-up name and I'm not a fan. Especially because it's so similar to the ultra-popular 'Bree' variations. Aubrey, Brielle, Briella, Brianna, etc. Seems...
Well, first off, I don't think Alice, Lucy and Rose are a mismatch. They're perfect vintage comebacks. When you consider Alice and Lucille, I might think Rosalie or Rosamund fits better. But...
My 12 year old niece is Pippa (just Pippa.) She actually enjoys the being thought of as close to the royal family now ;-)
She's spunky and loving and brave and creative. I did wonder how it would...

Good question. I'm one of those people who wait. For me, it wasn't so much my daughter's appearance as the nature of her birth. It was a LONG hard labour (37hrs, back labour, ended in a cesarean) but...
With a daughter already using a diminutive form (Anouk) I think Zouzou might be just fine for your family. It's similar enough to Zoe, just as nicknamey as Poppy or Emmy. How has Anouk been received?...
Honour names are always an exception. You have an equal right to use it as her daughter too. I'd even use it in the first spot if you were inclined, though it makes a lovely middle.
I prefer Claire. Both Natalie and Claire are French names and feel more timeless to me. I imagine elegant, lovely ladies as well as adorable girls. There will never be more Scarletts than in this...

Way too matchy IMO. When people are calling either of you, you'll both turn around. I'd steer clear of any Ken or Mc names actually.
What is it about Kenley that appeals to you? The LEE-ending?...

With Caitlin I'd choose Alexandra or even Alexa. However, I love Melanie and it's definitely way less predictable.
How often do people even see your middle name? I'd say it's fine. Twilight is already fading, I didn't even clue in that Rosalie is a character, although Esme does have the association. Esme and...

It all depends if you're having a third. I like Winston Oakes a LOT. Save that for a boy if this is a girl. So it nixes Winter. Arcadia Winter is my vote in that case.

You're in the UK, right? Rory is in the top 100. I'd think you'd be looking for something just as quirky and uncommon as Jem?
Ben is just outside the top 100. Benji instead? I could see Jem and...
Saylor is actually the most-used spelling of this name, it ranked #796 in 2014. That's my vote on your list.
It surprised me to see Harley used more on girls - it ranked #349 in 2014 for girls and...
I really like this name and it was on my list at one point. I'm in Canada and a band has a song called 'Enid' (we never really knew each other anyways) so that's what I think of first. My hesitation...
Yup. Cringe-worthy. Plus, Grayson is a fairly popular boys name. If you like Grace or Gracie, just go with Grace or Gracie.
Sequoia Winslow Faye
Another vote for Greta. It stands out and will never be as popular as the ever-climbing Eleanor and rising Louisa.

That's a tall order without knowing your preferences or style. I see you posted a few months ago about
have you given up on those? All go great with a...

Ha. We kinda wish we had saved our DD's middle name for a future daughter - Louise. She could go by that easily.
Her sister-on-the-way will have the middle name Roseanne, Eliza, Jean, Anjali or...

Harlen? Isabel Harlen sounds quite lovely.
Harnell? Isabel Harnell is a bit matchy, but still works.
Isabel Nelly Harlan ___y?
