Grandma's name sounds like sliced veggies
This may never be a real-life dilemma for us, but here goes. If we ever have another daughter, I would like to honor my grandma Julienne by using her name as a middle (which everyone pronounces "Ju-leen"; she is a twin to sister Jeanine and they are of the rhyming twin names era). She's an awesome, fun lady and I am lucky to have her in my life. We almost named our 6-year-old Elise Julienne, but chickened out in favor of Elise Marie (I've always loved Marie, but it honors nobody I know).
The combo I'm into at the moment is Audrey Julienne.
I'm not a big fan of changing the spelling (Juline, etc.), since I do want to honor her and am afraid she'd be a little sad at the implication that anything is "wrong" with her name. But I have to admit I am a little apprehensive of Julienne as a middle, since people might say, "like the way you cut up potatoes/carrots/veggies into strips?" when they see the birth announcement or her name in writing elsewhere.
I also like Audrey Julia, but it wouldn't be nearly as meaningful, in my opinion.
Can someone please talk me into Audrey Julienne? Or, as applicable, please tell me it's a bad idea?
Thanks.Mom to James Daniel (10) William Joseph (9), Elise Marie (7), and Zachary Allan (1)
