Middle Name Battles...

So, now that DH and I know it's a girl, it looks like the first name will be Reagan! We both really liked that name, so unless something else just reaches out and grabs us that's the one! Of course, now we are arguing over the middle name. Arguing probably isn't the right word...we are both trying to be nice to the other, but we both want to honor our families (Reagan isn't a family name)...so I thought I'd throw these out there and see how they look to people who aren't emotionally tied! What's your favorite (or are they all awful, lol!)?

Reagan Lee Campbell
Reagan Izelle Campbell
Reagan Jean Campbell
Reagan Bailey Campbell

Thanks ladies! :grin:

These are the two I like.

It seems that if you have a 2+ syllable first name then a short, sweet middle name works better. That's just my taste tho.

YAY for settling on a first name!! With the first name you've chosen and your last name both having two syllables, I feel that a one syllable or even three syllable name (ex. Reagen Alexandra) would flow better. Out of the four you have listed, I like Reagen Lee best but in my humble opinion prefer to see it spelled Reagen Leigh as it looks prettier and more feminine to me. Just my two cents. Smile

Thanks! Yeah I toyed with Leigh and Lee back and forth. For some reason my parents named me Amanda Lee instead of Leigh and I used to hate it, but as I've gotten older I kinda like having the boy version after my dad. Smile I'd still have to play with it some.

Definitely an important factor if both you and your dad have the same middle name! That would be really neat especially since you're having a girl. I'm sure your dad would absolutely love it!! Knowing this, I'd stick with the spelling Lee. Hope I didn't discourage you from putting my opinion out there! Sad

Oh no, not at all! I purposefully didn't say where each name came from so it would be an honest opinion. No worries! Biggrin

I like Regan Lee..... My DH and i could not agree on a middle name, he wanted her middle name after his grandma and i ALWAYS knew my daugther would have my mom's name either as a first name or middle name....so, we just used them both.
