    Question Francesca, Georgia, Kalinda...please weigh in!

    Baby is due in 12 weeks and we're waiting to find out if its a boy or girl until the birth. We are thinking of using a middle name to honor my mother in law (named Linda Grace). I don't like Linda at all but have thought of Kalinda (Hindi for "sun") as an alternative. Top considerations are:

    Francesca Grace
    Georgia Grace

    I love Georgia but worry that it might become too trendy. Thoughts, opinions, suggestions? Any help on name combinations using Kalinda as a FN or MN? Thanks!

    Francesca and Georgia are both lovely. Kalinda is also nice. I'm not a fan of Grace however....I quite like the idea of Georgia Kalinda.

    I like Francesca Grace, but not so keen on Georgia Grace. Depends how you feel about alliteration though. Would you be open to using Lynn as a shortened version of Linda? I think Francesca Lynn or Georgia Lynn would be lovely.

    I love both Francesca and Georgia! You have great taste. I'm not really liking Kalinda though. I like pp suggestion of Lynn as a middle name. That'd be a nice way to honor your mother in law.

    EDIT: I just wanted to add, Georgia isn't trendy in my opinion. It is rising, but it only moves up a few ranks every year. Plus, it's a pretty well known name, and is a widely-accepted feminine form of George, a classic.

    I worried about Georgia being on the radar more with the recent rumor that it was going to be a middle name for the Kardashian-West baby. Our oldest daughter is named Isabelle and when we named her that 14 years ago, it was pretty obscure. I wouldn't have chosen it had I known how popular Isabella/Isabel would become. Hoping to avoid that this time around!
