We are team green and have pretty much determined our boy name - Cameron Jacob. DH and I have FINALLY tentatively decided on our girl name...

Adeline Grace

Adeline because we actually both like it!!! My concern is that it will be mispronounced. We like "Ah-Duh-Line", but could see it being pronounced as "Ah-Duh-Lene", "Ah-Duh-Lynn", "Ah-Da-Line" and so on and so forth.

Grace is my confirmation name....we wanted to use part of my middle name (Lynn-Marie...yes, I am a product of the 80's!) but neither of those work that well, so opted to go for my confirmation name. I also like Rose, but that's my sister's confirmation name, who we are likely asking to be the godmother. That would be a bit of an overload honouring her, and Adeline Rose almost sounds like a grandmother name (I think?)

Need some opinions on spelling/pronunciation when you see that name.

Also any other suggestions for middle names....I'm not too fussy about passing on my confirmation name, I just have always loved the name Grace.

Thanks in advance ladies!

I can see Adeline getting pronounced wrong. Plus, I can see it getting shortened to Addie. I don't know about your area, but there are a TON of Addies and Abbies around my area. Not sure if that would bother you or not.

Grace is very pretty!

I read it as Add-uh-line. I think Grace is perfect as a middle name regardless of the pronunciation.

I think its a beautiful name. For me, there's no question... Adeline is pronounced Ah- duh- line.

Thanks ladies. I see it as Ah-duh-line, and the few other people I've told have as well, except for one that I texted it to, which started this whole line of questioning.

I'm ok if the nickname ends up as Addie, although I've been googling some other short forms and really like Della

Thanks again for the input

I like your choice, and don't think you should switch from Grace as your middle name.

Della Grace is also beautiful.
