    Default Some opinions needed please!

    Hey everyone

    Will hopefully be finding out in a few weeks whether Smidge is a boy or girl

    We have a boys named picked already, but are really struggling with girls names (for this reason I bet it is a girl LOL). I am looking for some opinions on middle names...

    Personally, I dont see the point in just picking any old middle name, I would rather not have one or choose one that has some sort of significance...DH suggested the following for a middle name for a girl:

    Pakiri

    Just wondering if it is a little too weird We think it is a bit too out there for a first name, but contemplating it for a middle name.

    FYI - the significance is that DH proposed to me at Pakiri Beach in New Zealand

    All opinions, good and bad, appreciated. TIA

    I like it, and don't think it's too 'out there' as a first name at all. It's pretty, unique, has significance to you and it's easy to pronounce. If you really like it then use it, otherwise you may regret not using it.

    Love it, I think it's very pretty and could be used for first or second

    Love it! It is unusual, pretty, very unique and most importantly very meaningful.

    Imagine how proud your daughter would be when she finds out how she got the name & how much it means to her parents?

    I'd definitely use it as a first name too.

    Honestly - hate it!

    But as it has significant meaning to you and if you like it - use it!!

    To me, it is a bit too 'different'. I like that it is significant though but I would opt to use it as a middle name perhaps.

    I LIKE Different! But yes, if it's a bit too 'out there' for you, use it as a middle name, it's so meaningful it would be a shame not to use it at all.

    Thanks for all of the opinions

    Kiri is cute

    One name that we both like (for a first name) but cant use is Indy. The reason we cant use it is because our last name is also 2 syllables ending in NDY and it sounds ridiculous

    Any suggestions for names with "Indy" in them that could be shortened as a nickname perhaps

    I like Pakiri, I don't think its too way out there but if you do use it as a middle name. I also like Kiri and don't think its too way out at all for a first name.
