    Do you have any family names that you like? All my kids have family names as their middle names.

    Otherwise what about

    Elsie Katherine
    Elsie Clementine
    Elsie Matilda
    Elsie Jean
    Elsie Jane
    Elsie Mairead

    Elsie. Dislike Matilda.
    Elsie Charlotte or something long - Scarlett?

    If you want an uncommon name, I read the other day that Matilda was about 20th most popular in Australia last year so there may be more of them around than you think.
    I like Elsie, but I think Elsa may be better when they're older.

    Another vote for Elsa here for same reason as above

    As far as middle names go, if one of your family has a name that sounds good with it, I would pick that.

    Failing that I like
    Elsa Jane
    Elsa May
    Elsa Jules
    Elsa Louise
    Elsa Rae


    From a brief Google, Elsa means truth, so another avenue to explore is names that also mean something significant to you.

    ah thanks, but am now a bit confused whether to go elsa or elsie - i do prefer elsie but agree elsa is more suitable for when she is older. my DD1 is clara so would it be too matchy to go clara and elsa?

    I do like
    Elsa/elsie Charlotte,
    Elsie Matilda
    Elsie Josephine

    do you think a 3 syllable middle name or just one, problem with one is they all seem like generic filler names eg rose, may, june, anne,

    I like the sound of elsie May.

    dont really have other suitable family names - used one up for dd1.

    getting confused and only couple weeks to go.... the help is really appreciated though, as i keep second guessing myself.

    I don't really like the sound of Elsa and Clara together for sibling names however I think Elsie Charlotte sounds really lovely and Elsie May has a nice sound to it too x

    Gorgeous names! I had Elsie and Matilda on my list for belly babe, but Matilda got crossed off when I did a prac in a childcare centre and there were so many Matilda/Tillys. I'm not much good with middle names, I used my Pop's for DS and DD is getting my Nan's, but I would go with Elsie. I think it is fine for an adult as well as a little one

    Thank you - i think i will stick with Elsie as i just dont think clara and elsa go so great together and i think elsie should be fine when she is older - there will be so many other similar girlie names like evie, lily, daisy, ellie, poppy etc of that generation that i dont think it should be out of place.
    okay so for middle names - our last name is two syllable
    so of the suggestions
    elsie charlotte
    elsie josephine
    elsie genevieve
    elsie juliana
    elsie lauren
    elsie juliet
    elsie may
    elsie simone
    elsie violet

    nothing is 100% grabbing me so any suggestions welcome or do you love any of above?
