    Need help with middle name.

    Well, with three weeks to go and undecided on a middle name, I decided to poll pettalk. The first name for our girl will be Hannah. The choices for the middle names are:

    Marie -- My aunt's middle name and my cousin's middle name. I am very close to this family and we spent a lot of time together growing up. If I was not at my house I was at theirs. However there is another cousin and a great aunt whose middle name is Marie and they were not pleasant people. My nice aunt had said that there are so many of our relatives with the middle name of Marie so using this name as a namesake is not as important to me anymore.

    Rose -- My cousin's first name (the same nice cousin from above.)

    Grace -- Just a name that we like but my nephew has a cousin on his mother's side with the same name.


    So what do you think?
    Thanks,
    Beth

    I'm partial to Grace because my firstborn daughter's name will be Grace.

    Rose is nice too. Marie isn't bad, but to me it has become a "filler" middle name (like, "we can't think of anything else and Marie sounds good with everything so we'll just use that.") I don't mean to offend anyone - Marie is a pretty name, it's just very very used.

    I like Hannah Rose, and the fact that it has no negative associations for you!

    Grace was my Great Dane's name, so I have a hard time taking that one seriously, and growing up in a heavily French-Canadian area, just about every other person's middle name was Marie.

    I like Hannah Rose. It flows beautifully. I didn't know that you were pregnant! I must have missed that thread. Best wishes!


    Thank you Wolfie!

    I voted for Rose as the middle name. You really have three
    great middle name choices picked out & it's hard to choose.

    Guess I'd go with Hannah Rose.

    Thanks everyone for responding.

    You always worry when naming your kids. You don't want to pick a name that everyone at school will pick on or make fun of. When I was talking about this to one of my co-workers, she looked at me and said, Hannah rose to do what? I said, oh, thanks a lot. I never even thought of that. Although I'm sure some kid along the way would.

    GRACE! If I mean ANYTHING to you, Beth, ANYTHING, you will name your girl Hannah Grace. Grace was Jonah's middle name until he decided to be a boy. Lilyana Grace.....sign.....wipes tears away......


    My friend's daughter is Hannah Marie. But, I love Grace!!

    My vote is for Grace also - my sister (that I helped raise) just had a baby and she named her Grace - I didn't like it at first, but she is so wonderful and if you baby is anything at all like this Grace, you will be well blessed!
