    First name to go with middle name Caitlin


    My husband & I are expecting our first child, a girl. I had a very close loved one named Caitlin who passed away & we would like to honor her by using Caitlin as a middle name.We aren't using it as a first name because a) we think having her "own" first name will allow our daughter to have her own identity within the family & b) due to the many, many Caitlins born in the 90s- early 00s with many. many different spellings, the name now seems a bit dated even though it is a traditional Gaelic name. My loved one also continuously had her name spelled wrong, had people act like she spelled it strangely (despite the fact that Caitlin is, in fact, the original spelling), etc. I have always thought, however, that it is a beautiful name & I still do!

    We would like a first name that is fairly traditional/classic & not overly common (preferably nothing in the top 10-- my husband has a super common name for his age group & hated always having to use his last initial at school, camp, etc. ) but also not so unusual that most people haven't heard of it. Our favorites so far include Eliza Caitlin, Willa Caitlin & Bridget Caitlin. We also love Ella Caitlin but fear Ella might be too trendy at this point. Any thoughts, opinion & other suggestions would be most appreciated!

    My favorite from your list is Eliza I just think it flows the best. In my opinion Ella is to popular and especially if you consider all the Isabelle's and Isabella's who share the sound and nn option
