Thread: MN for Emily

  1. #1

    MN for Emily

    I'm 28 weeks with our first baby (surprise gender) and DH and I have FINALLY agreed on a possible girls' name (although still miles away on a boys name).

    I'm finding it hard to think of a middle name though. We've agreed on Emily, and our last name is one syllable beginning with H.

    Here are the limitations - there are a few

    I'd like to avoid anything beginning with E or H. Also avoid G, as I'm EGH and so don't want my daughter having the same initials as me!
    Names to avoid as they're already taken by family (we have a huge family with lots of girls): Elisabeth (me!) Cara, Sophie, Grace, Kate, Jessie, Lily, Charlotte, Joanna, Hazel, Kirstie (or anything similar), Rebecca, Rachel, Sarah...
    I'd also rather avoid names ending with the "ee" sound as I feel that clashes with Emily.

    Style wise - I quite like one syllable names but that's not a rule. I'm also quite classic with name preferences and don't like "new" names.

    I really liked Emily Rose but now can't shake the association with the movie of the Exorcism of Emily Rose
    I also like Emily Joy but DH has vetoed

    Ideas?

    I've always thought that Emily Violet is really stunning. Other ideas:
    Emily Blythe
    Emily Eve
    Emily Claire
    Emily Clover

    Good luck!

    I think Emily Grace would've been lovely, although you said Grace has already been used. Emily Rose is very pretty and "short but sweet". Here are some more suggestions:

    Emily Jane
    Emily Sophie/Sophia
    Emily Lila
    Emily Kate
    Emily Mary
    Emily Skye
    My name is Alice, but you can call me Adelina. I'm just another Teenberry who has an obession with names, royals, history and photography.

    Adelina Sophia ♕ Magdalena Élisabeth ♕ Isla Aveline Ophelia Maeve
    Leo Xavier ♕ Alexander George ♕ Thomas Archie ♕ Nicholas Louis
