    Second MN for Emmeline Poppy?

    I've finally landed on Emmeline Poppy for my Emmeline combo (and I love it!), but I'm not sure about a second middle. Poppy in itself is already honoring (my dad insists that his grandchildren will call him Poppy, and my most fond early memories of my mom were her in her garden... plus, I like the veterans' symbolism, especially since my grandfather, father, and brother either served or currently serve in the Air Force), so I don't suppose it needs to be honoring, but it seems a bit odd not to use a family name for the last middle--I'm just so used to doing it.

    So far, all I've come up with is Emmeline Poppy Jane. I really like it, but Jane is the feminization of my dad's name (John), so I don't know if that would be weird? Any other ideas? It doesn't have to be a family name, since Poppy already is. Nothing too long, my surname is already 8 letters as it is.

    Thanks, ladies!

    I like Emmeline Poppy all on its own.

    But if you wanted a second middle name, I think jane works fine. I also like the sound Rue as well.

    What about Emmeline Poppy Claire? Emmeline Poppy Kate? Is there anything out there better than that? Rue could honor family, but I'm not sure I like the sound of Emmeline Poppy Rue (or even Emmeline Poppy Ruth/Ruby... I do like the option of Emmy Roo as a nn, though...). Is Emmeline Poppy Grace too cute?

    I really like Emmeline Poppy Jane, and I don't think it is weird at all.
