SO & I are keeping our little one's name under wraps from his family until she's born since they're pushing for one particular name (they want us to name her after his little sister....not gonna happen) & we think we've come up with a winner. Does it seem too long? Or what do ya'll think?



Hannah Alexandra Thomas



Yes, we do know that it is a mouthful but it seems that it flows very well....

I love both names, not sure I love them together but they are both beautiful and feminine :)

Really? We're pretty sure we're set on having her first name as Hannah. Alexandra seemed to be about the only middle name that the two of us settled on.

My daughters full name will be pretty long with two middle names but my thought was how often will you use their full name? If your not going to use it often its not a huge deal.

I think that since Hannah ends in an "a" sound and you're having her middle name start and end with an "a" sound it's too much. They are both gorgeous though!

I have never liked two long names together. I prefer a long first name with a short middle name or two short names.
My kids are Gabriella Rose (long with short)
Liam James (two short)
and this baby will be Isabella Marie (long with short)
Just my opinion, Hanna Alexandra doesn't flow well.
but if you two like it, that's what matters.

I think that's what we love about it. It kind of just flows easily. The transition is super smooth. & we think it'll mesh well with SOs other daughter's name: Allyson Merrie & Hannah Alexandra.

Fair enough. We are just completely set on Hannah but a lot of the shorter names we came up with for her middle name made it sound off. I don't know. Choosing a name is so difficult!!!

I love both names- my sister's name is Hanna Jessica and one of my best friends daughter's name is Alexandra (I feel like an ass because I don't know her middle name off the top of my head :oops:)

I personally don't think it flows well. The a sound on the end of both of them just isn't good together at all.

My best friend in primary school was.... Hannah Edna Dighton Mitchell, she was so proud of it that she signed everything using her full name! I do like Hannah and I love Alexandra (I am biased as its my dd's name) but it's such a mouthful to say together, however dd's name is Alexandra Alice and that doesn't exactly flow off the tongue.
