With 'Scarlett Rose' the middle name was chosen first because it's mine and I wanted to pass something of mine onto her, because when she was born we weren't married so was having her Dad's surname. The only other contender for her was 'Maddie' but we felt that she would need a full name, my choice was 'Madison' and Mr's was 'Madeline' when we couldn't agree we had a look online and found 'Scarlett' it was perfect for us. It goes so well with 'Rose', it's pretty and feminine, and most importantly suits her. I also like names that can be shortened so 'Scarlett' became 'Lottie'.
If Lottie had been a boy she would have been called 'Finian Thomas' Which Mr had asked if we could use, as its a family name. Looking back I'm glad that we had a girl as I've really gone off 'Finian' now, I still like Thomas so we have decided to keep that as a middle name for him whatever we decide.
I'm just desperately hoping we find a name that we like, I'd hate for them to be born as us have absolutely no clue what to call him (thats if its a boy anyway) im really hoping its a girl now so I don't have to have the dilemma.
Hiw did you choose your childrens names?
