British-sounding names - an update, and opinions on middle name
Hi Knowledgable Namers,
I wanted to give an update on our search for a British sounding name for our second daughter, due in a couple of weeks‘ time. Our first daughter is Eleanor Mae (nn Nell) and we were struggling to come up with another girl’s name that we liked as much. I’m very happy to report that I was able to convince hubby about Katherine (nn Kate) as a first name (may have had something to do with our daughter also taking a liking to that name, and repeating it to him A LOT). We are now looking at middle names ... thoughts please on the following:
Our last name starts ‘West’ and is two syllables. Jane would be a nod to my mum (Janice) but I’m slightly put off by some negative associations (Plain Jane, Jane Doe). Lydia is a name that I like, hubby will tolerate (that’s as positive as it’s possible to get from him!), no positive/negative connotations. Happy to have other suggestions for a middle name, but I’m thinking there’s only so many more naming conversations I can have with hubby before he gets complete naming fatigue.
Thank you for your help!
