    So OH and I have decided that we both really like Elsie as a possible name for our girl. We've still got 15 weeks to go, so chances are we'll probably change our minds another 5 times by then lol.

    But we're struggling on middle names to go with it :-/

    I liked the idea of Iris or Beau as a middle name as they both mean rainbow, and she is going to be our rainbow baby :) I quite like Elsie Beau, but I can't work out if it sounds really cute, or just weird and a bit too much?!

    Any suggestions? Xxx

    Elsie beau is really sweet. Elsie Iris sounds more like a rock star name haha. But Elsie Beau definitely has more of a ring to it.

    Elsie Iris doesn't sound right to me. Elsie Beau flows nicer.

    I was half asleep when I wrote the original post lol. It was meant to say that Iris and Beau are both names I like, but I don't think either really 'go' with Elsie, maybe Beau but in not too sure. I was hoping someone may have some other suggestions? Xx

    Elsie Beau sounds good but i dont think Elsie Iris goes. How about:
    Elsie Mae
    Elsie Rae
    Elsie Rose
    Elsie Jade
    Elsie Louise
    Elsie Faye / Faith
    Elsie Hope (apt if she's your rainbow baby)
    Xx

    I always thought Beau was French for handsome and more of a boys name? I do know of people who have female Beaus though
    Elsie Rae is lovely , Rose and Grace I like too x

    Some lovely ideas for us to discuss :) thank you!

    I love the sound of Elsie Rose, but the initials being ERH put me off slightly :-/

    Had a chat with my OH last night and he's keen on Elsie Rose. I love it, but I'm just not sure about the initials thing. But I guess then how often will the initials really be used for it to be an issue? Our sons initials are OSH which OH always jokes around with and says 'oooosh' (think Keith Lemon......') so I know whatever we go with, he'll find something funny with it

    Elsie Rose is cute and I think initials are not really important, I didn't think about the initials when I choose my son's name!

    My second language is French and it's true what someone already said. Beau is the French masculine word for beautiful. That being said, I do like the sound of Elsie Beau!
