Two middle names too much?
i can never commit to one name until I see bubby's face...but at the moment our top contender for our little girl due in 10 weeks is Ivy.
May is a family name and would tickle her Great-grandparents pink if we gave it to her, but we so love the name Emmanuelle...is two middle names too much? Our last name is similar to Knowles...
She could be
Ivy May (too cowboy?)
Ivy Emmanuelle OR
Ivy Emmanuelle May
Our son's middle name is a family name on my side..and he only has one... so thought it might be nice to do a family name from hubby's side for this bub. Thoughts and opinions welcome.~Mum to Miles and Ivy~

I love Ivy!! What a totally delightful choice!!
For a somewhat nit-picky reason, I vote for picking one middle name. The way I see it, the FULL name is one's true identity and -- if she had two middle names -- there will likely be times when she will need to compromise and only use one middle name (or one middle initial), which would then not represent her true identity. However, I can see why using both May and Emanuelle is a tempting option. It is nice of you to consider using May to please your family, and it IS a sweet middle name, but I would pass on using it unless YOU happen to love it too.Mother of three teenagers: (1) Daniel Glen, (2) Timothy Austin, and (3) Rebecca Jane. All middle names honor family, with Jane used three generations in a row. (A second girl would have been Susanna Eve).
