    Lightbulb The perfect middle name for Ottoline..?

    I made a thread before, but this time I want to know what you think goes best, regardless of what we're liking at the moment. I'm just looking for fresh choices. I have a harder time picking middle names than first, I have no idea why though! So..

    Eloise Julian (5)

    Beatrix London (3)

    Foster Kingsley (18mo)

    Ottoline ____________ ?

    if a boy it would be:

    Atlas ___________ ?

    Feel free to make suggestions for that also.

    I know a little Ottilie Lulu, which I think is so cute. Ottoline Lulu?
    Perhaps that's too similar to Elouise. Also, I've noticed you seem to like masculine or unisex mns for girls - do you want to continue that?
    Here are a few ideas I had:

    Ottoline Truman
    Ottoline Linnea
    Ottoline Islington
    Ottoline Knightley
    Ottoline Plum
    Ottoline Olive
    Ottoline Reed
    Ottoline Piper

    Let me know if any of those is your style, and we can come up with some more you might like from there.

    Atlas is a great pick, but quite a daring choice, so perhaps a conventionally classic middle would go nicely. Or are you hoping for something in the same style as Kingsley?
    Here are a few thoughts:
    Atlas James
    Atlas Rex
    Atlas Diggory
    Atlas Campbell
    Atlas Westley
    Atlas Wolfram
    Atlas Thoreau
    Atlas Heathcliff

    Again, there's a bit of a mix here, so if any of these appeals, let us all know and we can suggest others in that style for you
    I'm Claire, an Australian teenberry. I love names and kids, but I'm not going to become a mum for at least ten years. Until then, I'm just playing with possibilities.

    For girls, I love:
    Matilda - Iulia - Rosa - Annalise - Linnea - Eva

    For boys, I love: Anders - Reuben - James - Jude - Caspar - Thomas

    Guilty pleasures are: Blaise - Orion - Caspian --- Madelief - Isolde - Hero

    Hmmm... From the suggestions so far:

    Ottoline June: That was my grandma's name so it's definitely slecial to me. I wasn't sure if it was too close to Julian though.

    Ottoline Knightley: I had considered that as a boy mn, I never considered it for a girl!

    Ottoline Plum: I don't love Plum, but I like the girly playfulness it has.

    Atlas Diggory: swoon, it sounds so handsome!

    I agree that Atlas needs a less daring middle name to balance it out a bit. Maybe Henry? Or something along those lines. I love old english sounding names/surnames/places.
