Soooo.......

baby due in April is a girl, both DP and I dont mind Ruby as a name so discussion pretty much stopped there as there seemed no point continueing the search.  Problem is we just cant come up with a middle name,

some options (but not sold on any of them) could be to use one of the following family names

My mum is Helen Jean
DP's mum is Kaye
Grandmother Mavis Emily (already used Emily with our Angel daughter)

Can anyone give us some other ideas or a spin on one of the family names that we havent thought of that sounds good with Ruby?

btw surname will be Stewart

Looking forward to seeing what you can come up with as we are totally stuck!

I think Ruby Helen sounds quite nice. Or Jean, Kaye and Mavis go fine with Ruby as well.


Ruby Helena
Ruby Maeve
Ruby Mae/May
Ruby Caitlin

Other suggestions:
Ruby Claire
Ruby Celeste
Ruby Adeline
Ruby Madeleine
Ruby Lucille
Ruby Eve
Ruby Charlotte
Ruby Matilda
Ruby Elizabeth
Ruby Alexandra
Ruby Eliza

Ruby Katherine
Ruby Lara
Ruby Clara

I think you are spoilt for choice there.   Ruby Jean is great.  But Ruby Kaye and Ruby Helen are both nice as well.   You don't need to look any further IMO.

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce.
