    Honouring Two Names

    Hi Berries,

    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?

    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.

    Rosanne Jane is the best I can do. Jane essentially contains 'Anne', so to some extent you're covered, though I get that it won't feel that way. You could consider picking names that incorporate the initials, instead, or save one name for the next baby girl.

    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.

    What about Rosalie Jana? Or Rosalie Janna? Pronounced JAY-nah or JANN-ah. It combines Jane and Anne pretty well, and I think Rosalie Jana is sweet.
