    Is Pearl Agnes too 'old lady?'

    Well we know this baby's first name is Pearl, but we keep changing our minds about her middle name! And I have 8 weeks left to stew over it! Thoughts on Pearl Agnes? Agnes was my husband's grandmother---she was such a sweet little Norwegian lady, and Agnes is starting to grow on me. But combined with Pearl, does it give off too much of a nursing home vibe?

    Pearl Agnes is beautiful. Go for it, absolutely.

    It does have a strong old-lady vibe to me, sorry. Much as I love Agnes (and Pearl!) individually, and even like Agnes Pearl as a combo, the other way around, it does feel very old-lady like to me. Have you considered a variant of Agnes, like Agnessa or Agatha or Agathe, or maybe even something that has a similar meaning (like Pearl Katherine or Pearl Kaia?).

    Good luck!

    It sort of does sound old, but it has special meaning, so I'd go with it.

    It doesn't seem too old lady to me, but I would say the flow is off.
