We are due to have baby no 3 in May and while I am not yet quite 17 weeks, our ob thinks it looks like a girl.

The name we are thinking of at the moment is Amelia Grace.  I quite like it, but am willing to consider other names.  Our other children are Jack and Megan (Meg), so it needs to fit with them too.

I am not very creative and would appreciate any help from EB original.gif

thanks in advance

LOVE!  My eldest daughter is Amelia and my second daughters middle name is Grace.  Amelia is Amelia Rose and while I love it and wouldn't change it, it's a very common combination.

Unless Grace is for someone I wouldn't use it. I just find it a bit nothing though, not awful. Gwen is "out" but I like it more. There are a lot of one-syllable middles I'd take over Grace, excluding of course unless I were naming after a Grace I loved, which would trump everything.

I like a LOT of A names for girls so I'll spare you the full list but I really like Annabel, Abigail, Amy, Anwen, and Amanda.

I like Amelia, i think it suits your other 2 children's names.
Grace on the other not a big fan, seems a bit plain to me ... but i like different middle names original.gif

Not a huge fan of Amelia. To me it is a bit too "cute" for an older child, teen or adult.

I really like Amelia but I'd look at other MN options that aren't quite so 'default' as Grace nice though it is:


Amelia Dawn
Amelia Blythe
Amelia Joy
Amelia Pearl
Amelia Clare
Amelia Skye
Amelia Bryce
Amelia Sage

Love grace too, I would choose it as a first name if it had not already been stolen in the family. I like Amelia too but for me it does not have the charm if grace.

How about:
Elizabeth
Hannah
Erin
Caitlin
Abigail
Charlotte
Lily
Ava
Isabella
Emma

Thanks everyone, some great suggestions, esp about using Grace as the middle name.  Some of the names suggested are taken sad.gif

I quite like the suggestion of Pearl with Amelia, but we already have my daughter Megan named after my late mother Margaret.

Amelia is perfect with your others.

I agree with others that Amelia is lovely but I'd look for a more interesting middle name. There are a lot of Amelias around, and hence likely to be more than a few Amelia Graces.

Two of my usual suggestions for middle names:
Amelia Catherine
Amelia Charlotte

I'd prefer Grace as the first name.

other options?
Anna
Eleanor
Emma
Arwen
Annwen
Ellen
Gemma
