    What do you think of these?

    Hey Berries,

    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 you
    Lee, blackbird.

    Aleka . Audrey . Cass . India . Marian . Margot . Miranda . Molly . Natalie . Rosi . Samantha . Stephanie
    Christopher . Dylan . Henry . James . Julian . Levi . Paul . River . Vern . William

    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...

    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 it
