    well, i'm all for sharing!!!

    Erin Elizabeth for a baby girl ( elizabeth in my nanas name)

    Toby "any ideas for a middle name?" for a baby boy ( but definately not keith!!) - i dont like the idea of naming baby after its daddy ( no offence intended to anyone!) i think it just adds more confusio - specially as boyf is named after his papa!

    baby is not due til march 06, but we are (hopefully!) settled on names for our lil one, we dont know the sex yet - an to be honest, boys names were really hard - so deciding on a first name was hard enuf, never mind a middle name - do babies even need a middle name tho? - how often do they get used unless its double barrelled?? - dont get me wrong, i like the idea of 2 names - probably cos i never got a middle name!! hehehehehe

    any way - your opinions would be nice!

    thanks ladies

    Hello!

    I like both names - very nice.

    My only comment is Erin Elizabeth is a bit of a mouthful - probably because they both start with E. But then you don't tend to say people's first and second name together very often, so it probably wouldn't matter.

    Good luck

    yeah - i know its a mouth full, but baby wouldnt actually be called -"erin-elizabeth" she'd just be known as erin,

    the elizabeth bit is purely sentimental as it was my nanas name

    I think Erin is a lovely name but then it is my little gitls name so I suppose I'm biased. :lol:

    How about Toby Jacob?

    I like the idea of middle names. My little girl will have her grandma's middle name.

    It sounds silly, but it's partly because it gives a good 'telling off' name. If you shout Erin Elizabeth down the street she'll know she better get home right now! I guess that's what my mum did with me and my brother - the more names get used, the worse trouble you're in...

    Love the names Erin and Toby, we wanted Toby for a boy but our cat is called it and I thiught it would get confusing. I like the idea that baby would have your nana's name as a middle name, its nice to have a name with a reason x
