Hi all,

Just updating this thread:
Pronouncing Megan
Baby was born last Thursday and after much Meg-anning versus
Mee-ganning we decided she's more of a Meg  wub.gif wub.gif  

But middle names don't seem to flow as well.....it was going to be Meghan Ivy Susan, our surname is also a short one syllable name starting with B.

Susan needs to stay as her second middle name, there's also a small chance that she may be Meghan or Margaret on her birth certificate but we'll decide that when her birth certificate is due.

Any ideas?  Her siblings are Tahlia, Lachlan and Rosie.

Thanks lots original.gif

I like Meg Elizabeth as above... I think you need a middle name with lots of syllables to compensate for the short first name and last name.

Other ideas...
Meg Annabelle Susan
Meg Imogen Susan
Meg Eloise Susan
Meg Penelope Susan
Meg Felicity Susan
Meg Isabella Susan
Meg Miranda Susan
Meg Michaela Susan

With Meghan / Margaret and a Susan already in the mix, I'd stick to a shorter 'first' middle name.

Personally, I do like the sound of Meghan / Margaret Joy Susan Bxxxx

Only problem with this approach is that it does sound a bit gumby when you shorten it to 'Meg'.  In this case, I'm putting my eggs in the 'Elizabeth' basket with the other lovely EB ladies.

Good luck with it!

Otherwise with Susan:

Celestia
Magenta
Mahalia
Marika
Marlena
Valeska
Viviana
Zamira
Perdita
Florentina

Congratulations.  Meg is a fabulous name but unlike pp's Meg Elizabeth doesnt work for me, all I hear is Mega Lizabeth original.gif. Sorry.  It seems to be the case with any name starting with an 'a' or 'e'.

Perhaps (wow, this is hard)...
Meg Molly
Meg Xanthe
Meg Juliet
