Just after some suggestions, we have almost decided that our little pink bundle will be Lucinda (although I'm still loving Luella as alternative). She'll be a sister to Thomas, Rebecca and Zachary - do you think our chosen name fits in with siblibgs? She'll likely get shortened to Lou/Lucy as all the kids go by the shortened version of their name. Middle name has us undecided. I like Ivy and Kate as possible middle names but welcome any other creative or nice combo's for Lucinda.

I really wanted to use family middle name June, but DP isnt convinced.

I really like both the first names and both of the middle names. And I like all combos. Beautiful names.

Lucinda June is lovely!  L J is a cute nn as well.  Apart from that, Ivy and Kate sound nice with Lucinda.  I think it sounds great with your other kids names too.

I'm not a huge fan of Ivy, Kate's NMS either, but I think they would both make good middle names because they're short and simple. I have a friend who has a 4 year old named Lucinda and she is the sweetest, most clever and loveliest little girl so it's a name that I'm a big fan of original.gif

I'd try and convince your DH to use June. It goes well with Lucinda and I'm all for middle names having meaning.

I'm loving your alternative - Luella!  (I like Lucinda also.)

I think Ivy goes well with both.

My Lucinda is Lucinda Jane, so June fits perfectly as fa as I can see. I still adore her name 7 years on original.gif

Lucinda Ivy would be gorgeous. I prefer Lucinda to Luella and I think Lucinda is a much better fit with the other names.

I find Lucinda in a totally different category to your other kids names, but nice anyway.

I love Lucinda Kate

Better still Kate Lucinda.

Love both Lucinda and Luella and love either with your sibset.   Fantastic choice!   All NN's great too and I'd add in Lulu.

Of the three prospective MN's you mention my pick is definitely June.  I like the one-syllable MN to follow Lucinda/Luella.  Kate goes well enough but a bit meh for me.  I wouldn't choose a MN that begins with a vowel after Lucinda/Luella so that would rule out Ivy for me.

Other suggestions:

Lucinda Blair
Lucinda Jean
Lucinda Sian
Lucinda Joy
Lucinda Fleur
Lucinda Pearl
Lucinda Maeve
Lucinda Dawn
Lucinda Claire

I love Ivy but Lucinda Ivy sounds like Lucindavy to me - not terrible, but not ideal, the vowels run together and turn into one word.

June is pleasant, and with the family connection that would add points for me. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the flow/rhythm of Lucinda June.

Other 3-1 rhythm combos:
Lucinda Blythe
Lucinda Clare/Claire
Lucinda Wren
Lucinda Fern
Lucinda Mae or Lucinda Rae
