    Middle name to remember big sister

    I'm having a baby girl in a little over a month. I've chosen Stella which is a family name, but am still searching for a middle name. Last month my older daughter was killed in a car accident. Her name was Haley Elizabeth but her nickname was Bug. My son suggested Stella June (like junebug and the last month we were all together). I have a Weston Hawk, Norah Grace, Elodie Simone, and Miles Augustus. Any other suggestions for a middle name for Stella?

    Stella June actually goes really well together, never heard that combination before. Its sweet.

    I also like Stella Bug, I've never really said my middle name throughout my life. It seemed important and means alot to you. So your family could just call her Bug.

    I'm sorry for your loss.

    Stella June is beautiful.

    Just a thought - carrying the name of a sibling that was tragically lost may be heavy for her, and for the whole family.
    Would you consider a name that connotes happiness/appreciation for her birth (obviously in light of the loss, but it goes without saying) rather than the sweet remembrance of the sister that was?

    Stella June is lovely and meaningful. My first thought was Stella Lily: Lily being a variant of Elizabeth and to me always associated with Spring and rebirth and more light--maybe something to consider.

    You need to welcome your little Stella in her own right. Please do not name her after her big sister. Did your daughter Haley have a favourite name that SHE liked. A doll, teddy bear,. I feel that would be a better was to go.
