    Middle(s) for Agnes -- She's here!!!

    Update: Posted in Birth Announcements!



    Hey all! You were so helpful with this post that I thought I'd pick your brains some more!

    We haven't decided 100% that Baby's name will be Agnes, though I've been feeling it the whole time, and the three of us agreed that it's a fab name before I was ever pregnant (my 12-year-old adores the Despicable Me character and says if Sissy comes right now her name will definitely be Agnes). We were all in complete agreement on Felix for a boy, but we've had such a difficult time discussing girl names!

    Anyway, my biggest problem with Agnes is that I can't decide on a middle or middles. Henry has two middles (James & Parke. Parke was given at birth as an honor name and James was added around age 6 to honor someone else, though not legal at this point). All of Henry's names -- including our last name, Wh1te -- have 5 letters, but I don't necessarily need to keep Girlie's names in the same pattern.

    Others on our list -- some are family/honor names, some I love the Shakespeare connection, and some are/were considered strictly for middles:

    Alice
    Arden
    Beatrice
    Bliss (this is an extra-special honor name and would go in the second-middle slot if we use it)
    Celia
    Della or Delphine
    Edith
    Eloise
    Estelle/Estella
    Flora
    Gertrude
    Harriet
    Ingrid
    Irene
    Jewel
    Josephine
    Lucille
    Lillian
    Mabel
    Phebe/Phoebe
    Rosaline/Rosalind (ROZ, not ROSE)
    Willa

    If you can come up with some combos for Agnes, whether they include these or not, I would appreciate it so much! I can't even think straight at this point because I'm worried my membranes have ruptured (they didn't with Henry so I'm not sure what it feels like! ack!). I may have to check in with you from the hospital!
