    flower first name and middle name?

    Would it be a bad idea to have a flower first name and one for a middle name BUT with a name in between? E.g Ivy Elizabeth Rose or Lily Anne Violet. Both my kids have 2 middle names and this baby will too but a lot of names I like are flower names!

    I wouldn't suggest it. It does seem really floral. Ivy Elizabeth Rose wouldn't be bad, because I think of Ivy as more of a plant than a flower, but Lily _____ Rose or Lily _____ Violet is probably too much (although it's probably really hypocritical of me to say so, because I can easily see me using Lillian "Lily" and Violet (and Poppy and Daisy as middles!) if there were a few babies in between. I don't think I'd do more than one in a combo, though. I do two middles, too, and I can't really see me doing Violet Ophelia Rose (although, now that I write that, I really love it!) or Lillian Emilia Daisy (again, ugh, now I want to use it!). Maybe it's just because those combos are more my style, and Anne and Elizabeth seem almost filler, so they don't seem to create as much of a space as something like Emilia or Ophelia would?

    It could be worse. I don't mind overly floral names, so maybe it's just me. Ivy Elizabeth Rose sounds the best. (I would par Lily with something longer, Lily Victoria Violet or Lily Marielle Violet or Lily Cordelia Violet).

    Thanks I was just using those names as examples rather than actual combos I like

    I don't think it's a problem at all! I love nature names.
