    4 weeks out and no name!

    We need help with our baby girl's name! Our last name begins with an M, three syllables, and very German. We loved Jane, but now we are concerned that it is too plain. We want Margaret in the name, as it is a family name on both sides. I like Vera, he likes Sarah. I like Adeline, he likes Emma. We are don't have a name we are both crazy in love with yet. Help please! Also we are thinking Margaret Jane, but calling her Jane.

    You could honour Margaret with Margot or Margaux? How about Alice, Vivienne, Beatrix or Aurelia? Don't be frightened of Jane, it's a beautiful elegant classic, short and sweet.

    How about a double name with Jane?
    Vera-Jane, Sarah-Jane, and Emma-Jane seem like good options. Or Maryjane.

    I think Jane Margaret sounds lovely. If you are going to call her Jane anyway this seems more logical and has a better flow in my opinion.

    Thanks yeah the more I think about it Jane Margaret has just as good of flow. With our crazy last name I thought it sounded better are Margaret Jane but the more I say it in my head the more it has a better flow. Also I love the idea of the hyphenated name, especially Vera-Jane, but it would make her name so long with Margaret and then our very long last name. And Margaret is a definate for us.
    Thanks for all the feedback! Anymore suggestions are welcome!
