Question Need name help please!!!

So we've decided on Katherine (calling her Kate ) for her first name, but we CAN NOT agree on a middle name DH and I both like traditional names, but I think we need something a little less common to pair with Katherine. All of DH's suggestions sound like an eighty year old woman's name and he just gives me "the look" at some of my suggestions. His exact words are, "I just want her name to say 'American Girl'" Suggestions?

Aww, I love Kate! I don't have any suggestions...I'm bad at giving name advice. What were some of the ones you and he liked?

Well, there's not much I don't like haha! I REALLY love Elise, but DH hates it. He likes Victoria, Nicole, Marie. I just think Katherine is so traditional and I feel like Nicole and Marie are overused as far as middle names go (even though they are all pretty).

We are in the same situation with our little girl. We've decided on Ivy as a first name but the middle name...we can't agree on anything. I have found some great ideas poking through family history so maybe you could start there?

If he wants it to sound like an American girl...maybe something a little more country?

Re: Need name help please!!!

Ok so I'm not in your due in may group but if you're looking for opinions I really like what pp said Katherine May since you're due in may too my best friend has a baby born in may named Violet May. I also babysat an Olivia May. Super cute middle name! Imo. Also speaking of Olivia the name Ivy which I love would be cute with it... Ivy Olivia. Ok good luck ladies! Love the first names it should be easy to find cute middles

Our daughter is going to be named Katherine Sophia but I also like the name Josephine for a middle name. Not very american though i suppose

I LOVE Katherine May, but DH isn't on board. And he hates country sounding names, so that's why I'm not really getting his viewpoint. He says he doesn't want a common name, but the names he's choosing are EXTREMELY common!
