Honouring Two Names
My DH has finally settled, and we both decided that if we have a girl we would really like to name her Rosalie. My concern is with middle names. With our son we used James, and it was perfect because it honoured his father and my grandfather.
But for girl middle names, we don't have any overlaps. I want to honour my mom and grandma by using Anne and he wants to do the same using Jane. But Rosalie Jane Anne or Rosalie Anne(a) Jane doesn't flow two well.
Any suggestions of how to make the best of these two names?Maddox (Max) James 08.31.13.

Honoring Anne and Jane with Rosalie as first name:
Rosalie Janelle, Rosalie Janice
Also, you may want to consider what months these relatives were born in. If it was August, Rosalie Augusta is pretty. Avril, Janvier, Nova, Novelle could be used to symbolize when they were born. If it was in the fall, Autumn could work. Even Winter and Summer.

You could also let one of them (or both of them) pick a middle name instead of using their name. I'm not a fan of putting two names together to one name where both kind of vanish in it.
