Fern is so beautiful. i'd go with something longer and kind of traditional for a middle. Margaret? Charlotte? One of those nice old Catholic names. (Not that you're Catholic, but Irish).

Has anyone had a named picked out for a while (called baby in womb the name, shared with family) then changed it at or near birth?  My husband and I LOVED and agreed on "Story" for our little girl with my middle name "Ina"... I love it, but am wondering now that her birth is getting close if it will be right for her or perhaps another name.  We like "Maya" too.

If it feels right to change her name, especially once she's born and you meet her, I'd say go for it!


Thanks for the replies about a middle name for "Fern". I like the idea of something longer as well...Ophelia would be in honor of a family friend who my mother knew since childhood, Pandora came from a dream (related to the myth of Pandora's box), and Silvana means beautiful forest. I am going to look back over family trees for some good, long Irish names today :)

Mama to DD born 1/28/12, and baby #2 on the way in January '14!
