    Middles are so difficult!

    I've posted a few times before, but I just haven't found anything that dh and I both love and agree on. Or I second guess myself and worry that it doesn't flow well or fit with our sibset.

    I was trying to follow a set of "rules" based on our other children's names, but I just want to hear what you all think sounds the best in the middle spot.

    We have Eloise Julian, Beatrix London, and Foster Kingsley.

    Baby #4 will be either Ottoline ________ or Atlas ___________

    Ottoline strikes me as a vintage name with a little more dust on it than others that have been popular and rising on the forums here -- and I'm surprised at how much I like it! I think that you could go with something quirky and unexpected in the middle spot, or something a bit more classic. But basically anything except for maybe anything "ee" and "een" ending in general (always exceptions!) would work.

    I'd be curious to know what the "rules" are!
