What do you think of these?
I'm trying to work on my list. Just wanting your thoughts on these:
Josie: This has been my favourite for a while, even though it's rather popular. For some reason it has a vintage, dainty charm to me.
Heather: Loving this for a middle spot right now, and it also honours my grandmother (Heather Anne "Anne")
Laura: Yes, kind of dated, but I love it a lot.
Madeleine: This is also quite popular, but I like the flow of it.
Ruth: I have loved this for a while now.
I am loving Josie Heather and Laura Madeleine as combos.
Also, please leave some suggestions for me, combos, anything.
Thank youJude, blackbird.

Josie - Dated. I really dislike this nickname, even though I love Josephine. I think it's quite popular in America (it's considered cute there), but, in Australia, it's considered a tacky 80s name.
Heather - Dated.
Laura - A classic, but not quite in the same vein as Charlotte, Elizabeth, Margaret, etc. I dislike this name, but only based on personal associations with Lauras over the years. Objectively, it's a nice name.
Madeleine - Nice, but nothing spectacular. There's a million Madelines out there.
Ruth - Old fashioned, maybe ready for a comeback.
As for your combinations, Laura Madeleine is perfectly nice, but Josie Heather is awful. Josephine Heather would be mildly better.
Old fashioned name suggestions...
Audrey - Beatrice - Clara - Daphne - Jane - Margaret - Susannah - Violet
Arthur - Barnaby - Edward - Frederick - Henry - Rupert - Theodore - Walter

I understand where people are coming from with the idea that Heather is "dated" but I did choose it for my daughter's middle name. For one reason only, that it was after my mum. My Mum is Heather and I always wanted my daughter to share her name. I think it is beautiful simply because my mum is a gorgeous person.
That's why, despite people's opinions, you should always go with a name you love. If you and your hubby love it, then you should go with itMummy to the gorgeous Alice Heather and the delicious Harry George
