R first and R middle name???
I'm surprised I'm asking for name help. :giggle: We always use family names for middle names. This is our last baby. If it is a girl, I really want to name her after my sister for her middle. (We have other people, but we strongly prefer to name her after my sister.) The first name I want is Rebecca. So, it would be:

Rebecca Rachel

I'm not sure about the two R's in a row. Originally, I was wanting Amanda Rachel, which I like just fine. (I don't love Rachel as a middle in general, but I want to honor my sister.) I was having twins again, identical, and hoping for girls so I could use both names (different middle with Rebecca, but I don't prefer that person with only one person left that we can honor.)

Now, I have to chose one Amanda or Rebecca. I like Rebecca better.

What do you think of 2 R's in a row for names? Our last is an F.

(And, after all this, I hope it's a girl! :giggle2:)

I hope it's a girl too! Your lone dd needs a sister (although I'm one to talk :giggle2:)

I think that a name that means something to you is more important than it flowing *perfectly*. When DH and I were trying to name DD, I kept wanting short names because we have a 3-syllable last name and I thought it flowed better. But he convinced me that Charity was the perfect middle name for our little girl.

GL with your decision!

Re: R first and R middle name???
My first and last names are R names and while I don't love the two R's it because I've always stumbled on R's a little when I talk fast, I do really like my name. I think having a Rebecca Rachel would be better than having a Rebecca and a Rachel. For some reason those names get mixed up constantly. As a side note, have you thought of the spelling Rebekah?

I think middle names are used so infrequently it's fine. Another suggestion would be to use a nickname version of your sister's name. I think Rebecca Shelly is pretty cute.

My sister's name is Rachel Ruth and its a great name! She got coined "RR"...."railroad" and its sorta a family joke but in fun jest. We love the R R name. She loves it too.
