I think we have decided on Isla if this baby is a girl. We are struggling for a middle name though. Here are our ideas...
Isla May (H's Nan's middle name)
What do you think?

May! Fits beautifully :)

I like Florence. obviously May has family significance for you but it is very overused as a middle name I think (same with rose and grace).

Isla May sounds lovely

Are the other names family names?
Like a previous poster said, May is very over used, but I like that it has family significance (I think middle names are pointless unless they have "meaning")

I think florence is in my family distantly but may is more significant. I agree that it is nice to use family names. Another family name we love is isabella, but that didn't sound right we did think of isla belle but not sure...

My cousin called her little girl Isla Isabella. Our gran's name was Isabella. I do like family names as middle names.

Having a bit of a name wobble now. Just discussed sophie isabella...

When are you due Mermaid? We toyed with a few names for girls (before we knew this was a boy) and I found a good way was to use the name when talking about baby for a few days and see what gels nicely :o)
I do prefer Sophie, if you are asking for opinions. Isabella is lovely too. Popular choices though in case that bothers you. If I loved a name enough then popular wouldn't factor into it.

I like Isabella May ;)

Chimpanzee, I'm due in 14 weeks, ages yet! Popular names don't bother us, our son is called oliver! We don't know what we are having so are all sorted with a boys name but struggling with a girl. Thanks for all the ideas, we only really like isabella as a middle name, not enough as a first name.

I like May because it has a meaning for you. I don't really see the point in middle names just for the sake of it, they're never used.

sophie Isabella sounds lovely.
however I do agree that its nice for middle names to have meaning. are there any other family names in contention?
