Imogen is a lovely name and I can totally picture a little Imogen tagging along after big sis Alice and big brother Harry...such a great sibset. I think letting your husband have the family middle and getting the first you really want is worth it in the long run even though it can be frustrating! Lucy is also great with you little ones names but if you husband is really over it than why push the issue if you love Imogen? Btw your children have fabulous names!23 year old name lover with a passion for art history married for three years to my much better half

I love love love Imogen
If the middle name is what is troubling you, would another form of Christine work for you, or must it be Christine exactly? Otherwise, other options could include:
Imogen Christa Took
Imogen Christobel Took
Imogen Kristen Took
Imogen Christiane Took
Imogen Christel Took
Imogen Stina Took
Understandable if this doesn't work for you, but thought it might open up some new optionsCome visit my name blog! http://babynamepondering.blogspot.com.au/

Wow! Such a huge divide between Celia and Imogen in the responses. Thank you all! A few responses for you...
My MIL name is Christine and my name is Kirsten (pronounced KER-STEN). I actually hadn't thought of mixing up the middle name as my other two children have complete family names (my mum is Heather and my hubby's grandfather is George), so trying to mix it up may look more like a blend of my name and my MIL. Not sure if I'm keen....
I do agree with emsky that Cecelia just seems frilly, too long, or just too much of a mouthful next to Alice and Harry. And nn CC would be off=putting but not a deal breaker for me.
When we were considering the option of Maggie, we would not do a longer version. This, again, is my husband's reasoning - if you are always going to call them by the shortened version, why bother with a different version. This is the total reason why we chose Harry and not Harrison. But having said that, I am reluctant to use Maggie as its another "ie" sounding name and as I mentioned before, I would love #3 to have its own stand alone name. Like Imogen or Celia.
So very much appreciate everybody's feedback! We have about 9 months to still decide.......so look out for a poll for boys and girls names as we won't be finding out the sex so it will be up for discussion till labour!Mummy to the gorgeous Alice Heather and the delicious Harry George
