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
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

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:

ive got a grace poppy so i love grace. i know it gets used loads as a middle name but i dont think its boring at all i think its beautiful.

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.

Thanks everyone, some great suggestions, esp about using Grace as the middle name. Some of the names suggested are taken
I quite like the suggestion of Pearl with Amelia, but we already have my daughter Megan named after my late mother Margaret.

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:

I'd prefer Grace as the first name.
