    Default Middle name help!

    I desperately need help with dd2's middle name!

    our choices are either just Ivy or Ivy Louise or Ivy-Louise.

    Bit of background- Ivy Louise was my great-grandmothers name and the name Louise is my grandmother, mother, mine and dd1's middle name.

    I'm not sure if its just the pregnancy hormones but I feel like dd2 might feel left out if she doesn't have Louise?

    We also have a hyphen in our last name think Al-fayed.

    Thanks!!!!

    I wouldnt hyphen considering you have a hyphen in your last name. Use Louise if you want to continue the tradition...dont worry about how she may feel later on, For what its worth, I think Ivy Louise sounds lovely and have always loved the name Ivy

    ETA: Just read that its your DD1s middle name. I wouldnt use it for more than one child.

    I agree with London, I love hyphen ex names by only if the surname isn't hyphen ex.

    Great name choice Ivy Louise is gorgeous.

    I would use Louise. The same middle name has been passed down my family as well.

    Both my kids have the same middle name too. No big deal- not like middle names are used all that often.

    Nooooo!!! Looking at middle names only I'm not a 1st name hyphen person!

    Thanks for the advice ladies I think I will go with ivy Louise for her middle names. With the first and last names we have it works out to the exact same amount of letters as dd1.
