    In early labor, last minute change in name?!?

    What is your favorite combo? My husband brought up the idea of the name Lavinia about a month ago, but we were set on Elowen. We just said maybe for the next girl... but if we have a boy next we will probably be done. So the question is, do we love Elowen or Lavinia best for this little girl soon to make her appearance? Obviously we can decide after she's born, but I just wanted some opinions on which you like best. Big sister's name is Rosamund Hazel.

    First Names: Elowen or Lavinia

    Middle Names (all have some family or personal significance even if they sound "filler"): June, Louise, or May

    Lavinia June is gorgeous! And I love Rosamund and Lavinia together! Much more than Elowen. I wish my DBF liked those

    I like Elowen June but if your not set on using a family name in the middle Elowen Lavinia is an option.

    I love both names but I think Lavinia June is gorgeous and is a better "fit" with Rosamund. I would take both names to the hospital with you and wait until you meet your daughter before making your final decision. She may "look" more like an Elowen after all! Good luck!
    All the best,

    Elowen is also lovely, but I think Rosamund and Lavinia is much better sibset. I voted for Lavinia June. I didn't pick May because it seems silly to me to use a month name for a baby not born in that month. The alliteration of the L sound in Lavinia Louise might bother some people, so Louise may not be the best match. If neither of those things bother you, though, all 3 choices are nice. Or, if the middle name isn't set in stone, Lavinia Elowen sounds pretty to me, too.
