Stuck on middle name...

We are set on a boy name (Mason Andrew), but are having trouble with a middle name for a girl. I went with your advice and chose a name that I love more so than a name that fits the pattern. Me being the dork that I am thinks it will fit well, anyway, if it's a girl because our first and last daughter would have names that start with A. The name we've chosen is Aubrey, but we're torn on middle names. I want Aubrey Frances because Frances is after my grandma, but DH does not like it. He likes Rose, but I'm not sure I like that either. What are your thoughts for middle names??

Also, which spelling of Aubrey do you like? The traditional or Aubree? Thanks in advance!!

Mason Andrew sounds great with your other names!

I prefer Aubrey spelled Aubrey vs. Aubree, I also think it ties more with Lauryn when spelled with the "y".

For middle names:

Aubrey Michelle
Aubrey Mae
Aubrey Elizabeth
Aubrey Corinne

I prefer it Aubree. Only because then you can use the nickname Bree.

Aubree Elaine
Aubree Claire
Aubree Christine
Aubree Elise
Aubree Jade
Aubree Coraline
Aubree Leanne

I prefer the traditional spelling but that's just cause I like traditional names to begin with.

I like Aubrey Katherine, Aubrey Elizabeth, Aubrey Paige

PS - Congrats Holly on #4!!!!

Thank You Biggrin

I love all of the suggestions so far! Aubrey Mae did cross my mind once as a way to honor my grandpa who passed away last summer. He was born in May. I'll have to show DH the list and see if we can pick something out!

Thanks for the help ladies Biggrin We settled on Aubrey Mae if this peanut is a girl. DH preferred the "y" spelling since it flows with DD2's spelling. I let him have it since I chose the first name. Thanks again! So anxious to find out what this LO is!

Little late to the discussion, but congrats Holly!!! Basically we were pretty sure on a boy name, but I knew it was a girl and just got my confirmation. I have a list but nothing that sticks out great. One name did but doesn't go with our last name.

Anyways, Congrats!! And BTW I like the traditional spelling too.

I love all your kid's names! Lauren has always been a favorite but sadly my DH was engaged to a Lauren years ago. LOL. Now that would be odd if we named our child Lauren.

I agree, Aubrey with the y is my favorite and it sounds great with Mae!
