We already have a Willow Grace.
we've pretty much decided on Blossom as a first name for this baby but are a bit unsure about middle name.
Blossom Faith or
I've been a bit unsure about blossom as wasn't sure people what people would think about us then having a "theme" ie plants/nature. I think I've got past that now as I do really love the name , but I'm now unsure about middle names.
i like Blossom Faith, but to go with Willow grace is it a bit rhymey- faith and grace ? You wouldn't say both girls full names together very often but if you did does it sound a bit silly and rhymey?
I also like Blossom Eve, but when I say it i feel like I'm making a conscious effort to separate the two names as otherwise it tends to sound more like Blossom meve. Does that make sense?
Anyway, sorry for a long rambly post. What I'm asking is what's your opinion of the name, taking into account how it sounds with our other daughters name? Or any other suggestions for middle names?

I think Blossom Faith sounds lovely together, not that I dislike Eve mind you.

LOVE Blossom! It's beautiful. I'd probably go Eve though.. Not sure why as both sound good.

I like both but prefer blossom faith. Cute names btw x

Thanks ladies. You don't think willow and blossom together sounds a bit twee?
Ive always said I'm not too keen on what I call " little girls names"- names that are really cute like daisy, poppy, honey, etc, because I'm not sure how good they are for a grown woman in a top career etc. but then I go and pick blossom which is probably the same kind of name!
If H had a strong preference for one of the middle names I'd probably just let him choose but he can't decide either ( although not for the same reasons as me, just because he can't decide!)

Another vote for Blossom Faith I think it goes lovely with Willow's name xxx

I also prefer Blossom Faith and think it goes really well with Willow Grace. As you say, I think Blossom Eve runs together a bit.

I think they both sound lovely, if I had to choose I'd probably go for Faith.
Are they just names you like or do they have any significance to you? If so the reasons may make a difference to which one I prefer.

Hi BG hope you are doing well!
None of the names have any significance, just ones we like.
The more I say the names the more I prefer faith. My only concern is when I say faith and grace they seem to rhyme with each other (might be my northern accent). But it's going to be very rare that you would say both girls full names together I think for it to be too much of a problem

I prefer faith. i don't think there will be many instances where middle names are said together/compared.
05/10/2013 at 10:37
My children are all in school now and I doubt that many people we know have ever heard any of their middle names. So based on that, go with what you like best x

Blossom is lovely, I think I prefer the sound of Faith.

I'd go for Blossom Faith, that is a lovely name.
