Following on from my other posts the current name favourites for our 3rd are Lucy or Henry. We have no family or close friends' children with these names either.
DS's name is Archie James and DD's is Millie Elisabeth. Any middle name suggestions appreciated.
Boys- all we have so far is:
Henry Guy Ch---er (Guy is my DH's middle name)
Lucy Beatrice Ch---er
Lucy Isabella (Spanish form of Elisabeth, which is DD's MN)

I LOVE Henry and Lucy Good choices!
I don't mind Henry Guy, but it wouldn't be my choice, although it is nice to honour your DH!
I like, in order:

I like, in order:
1. Lucy Isabella- Lucy Isabelle has a better flow IMO
2. Lucy Zara
3. Lucy Beatrice- love Beatrix too
4. Lucy Alice
Henry is ok but I don't like Guy at all.

Thanks Hola and Fifi-Trixibelle
We have gone for Isabella rather than Isabelle as we prefer it and there are 2 first name Isabel/Isabelles in the family and one with it as a middle name, so we wanted something slightly different.
Hola - there are definitely some possibilities there. Do like Rose and May too but again used by close family.

I Like in order
Or how about Lucy Jane? or you could change the spelling to Jayne...
And for boys
I love Henry, but don't really like Guy with it,

Henry & Lucy are beautiful names .... : )
Out of ur names I'd go with Lucy Isabella or Lucy Beatrice .... lovely!
Personally i'd use Lucy Catherine or Lucy Kate as that's a family name of ours which suits too. I also like Lucy Charlotte.
With Henry we would have Henry Thomas, Henry Hugh or Henry William/Liam ... again as they go & are family names. I think its nice to use a family name if it means something to u as mn's r hardly used anyway. Guy does go too.

I prefer Lucy with a one or three+ syllable middle name (no idea why!), so the first two work for me
Henry... I like Henry James but you can't use it
Henry John is the only one I can think of - again I think one or three+ syllable middle names work best

I think that you have hit the nail on the head that either a one syllable or 3 or more syllable sound better with both of them, when you say them. It must be with both of the names being 2 syllables eg
Lucy May - other young family member has May
