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.

Kate and June sound lovely as middle names to Lucinda.

I love Lucinda June - fits beautifully and hard to do better really!
Posted 11 December 2012 - 01:03 PM
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 really like Lucinda and I think it goes well with your other childdrens names

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

I'd try and convince your DH to use June. It goes well with Lucinda and I'm all for middle names having meaning.
Posted 11 December 2012 - 01:24 PM
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
Posted 11 December 2012 - 02:20 PM
Lucinda Ivy would be gorgeous. I prefer Lucinda to Luella and I think Lucinda is a much better fit with the other names.

i really like lucinda i think its really pretty and a nice full name option. i know a lucinda who goes by lucy. i also think june is lovely and flows nicely. i would definitely use that combo over your othet choices.

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.
Posted 11 December 2012 - 06:11 PM
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 Mae or Lucinda Rae
