    Default Name suggestions please!

    Hey all!

    Our third baby is due in May, and will be a surprise baby (we're not finding out the sex).

    Well before we fell pregant, my husband told me he wanted to name our next baby Billy/Billie whether it was a boy or a girl. I don't like nicknames as actual names, so whilst I agreed, I decided bub will be called William or Willow with Billy/Billie as their nickname. But I need middle name help please!

    Willow (Billie) _____ Miller.
    William (Billy) _____ Miller.

    I'm leaning towards Lewis as a middly name for Billy, but have no idea for Billie. Ideas please!

    If you like Lewis as a middle name for a boy how about Louise for a girl?

    Louise is my middle name and my mum's name! I have thought about using it, but I'm not really sure I want to?

    Any other suggestions?

    My dd has my middle name as her middle name, i think its a nice connection that we will always share, ds has DH middle name and my dd2 has just a random middle name but i wish we had given her a my Omas name, but it would have caused issues with the IL's

    Id go with Louise, how often do you say thier full name anyway?
    Only when they are in trouble

    My Mum, Nan, DD and I all have the same middle name. It does go back generations and as much as I hated it I loved passing the tradition onto my daughter and she has already said if she ever has a girl she will give her the same middle name

    If you just want to change Louise a little so it's not the same, what about Eloise. It's on my short list, I love it.

    Hi
    What gorgeous names! I really love Billy/Billie. I'm a sucker for unisex names and my DD has one, I also named her after mysef, we share the same middle name which I love
