First off I really don't believe in "filler" names. I didn't just stick Anne in my daughter's name to fill the space of middle name.[/b]
For us, the middle name has to mean somthing, or be after sombody.

I voted Faith, my middle name is a filler name, my mum wanted something to help Jessica flow better with Andrews because of the 'a' sounds, so I ended up as Jessica Louise.

My daughter's middle name is not a "filler" name either........ it absolutely means something to our family. I would never just give a "filler" name..... even if the name isn't going to be from our family, it is still going to mean something to us.

To me 'filler' names are not names you just stick in to fill a gap, but names that dont have any particular significance (apart from the name of your child) such as a family member, meaning etc. but just a name you like and that flows well. JMO though.

I don't think I would call them filler names either - they don't all flow very well after Kate (my current if this is a girl name) or even after my own name. Some do, but I'd say only about half. Plus I like some of them as first names. Also i don't believe in filler names for myself - if I couldn't find a middle name I liked (like that would happen I like tons of names!) then I just wouldn't bother with one
I did vote for my favorites on the list though, just wanted to clarify that I don't think of them as "filler".

Well if a "filler" name is something that doesn't come from a family member...or had meaning before the child...then I guess my whole child's name would be a "filler" because she wasn't named after family...they were both names that I LOVED.[/b]
Like I said, that was just my opinion. It applies to my name, not neccesaraly anyone elses.
