Middle Name for BettyBetty
Posted 10 May 2013 - 08:42 PM
My husband and I are expecting our third child - a girl. Right now I'm leaning toward naming her Betty after my grandmother, but I also like the Hebrew origin of the name and the ring it has with my middle daughter's name, Calla (Calla and Betty). I feel like these names are unique on their own but that they don't compete with each other, though I guess Calla sounds more "pretty" and Betty sounds more "cute."
The main thing is that I need a middle name for Betty. Right now I came across Ruth, which is a woman endeared to me from the Bible. I don't know any Ruth's personally so I don't have a bad taste for the name and I like the sound. I know that the name Betty Ruth with sound like Baby Ruth, but I don't mind that too much.
The main thing I was looking for in a middle name was that if she doesn't like such an old-fashioned name and wants to go with her middle name, that it not be too obscure to want to use it. Our other kids have middle names that start with Ls and I've always liked names that have Ls in them, but I can't think of anything that sounds good with Betty but isn't as old-fashioned. I guess Ruth would be old fashioned too, but I still find it charming.

My grandma is Betty Lou, which I think would be too old fashioned.
