Middle Name for baby girl June!
I often read, but I haven't posted my own thread before....I am 5 months pregnant with a girl and need some name advice!
We have completely decided on the name June for a first name. My husband and I have loved it for years and are so excited to use it- to me it is a sweet, feminine name that isn't too long. Our last name is Biggs but with an "R".
Middle name contenders are:
-Rhetta (pronounced like "Greta" but no "G"). This is my husband's grandma's name and we really like it. This is the top contender right now.
-Margaret. This name would be to honor my grandma.
-Susannah. This was our second-choice first name, we really love it and hesitate to use it as a middle for the sake of possibly using it as a first name for a potential future daughter.
Any help would be appreciated, or any other names that would go well!

I love June Rhetta! And it has a meaning for you so I would totally use it. I wouldn't choose Susannah if you want to use it for a next daughter.June Margaret is also nice.
Some other suggestions
How about using two middle names?

I am in love with the idea of June as a first name, so classy and gorgeous, glad it's not become simply a middle name only type of name, though it does make a wonderful middle name it's great to see it as a first name again
If you want to use Susannah in the future (Jane and Susannah sound brilliant together) I wouldn't use it as a middle name for your first daughter
I love Rhetta and Margaret as they honor important women in your family, have you considered Margaretta as a way to honor both?
Other names I can see as a good middle for Jane include:
Harriet (actually not really my style but I think it would flow nicely)
Just names off the top of my head personally I think Margaretta would work well to honor your grandmother and your husband's grandmother though if only one I feel that Rhetta would work best with Jane and if you had another daughter and used Susannah then I think Margaret would work for that name betterNumber 1 Aunty to one adorable ray of sunshine Rosalee Jillian 'Rosie'/'Roe'

I love June Margaret! June is sunny and a little sassy and Margaret is elegant and sophisticated, so the two of the paired together are an adorable vintage combo to me.
Rhetta isn't my favorite, but I'm also a huge proponent of unique family names so if that's the one you love then absolutely use it!
