That's our chosen middle name too! I think soooo many names fit nicely with it. What are some names you like??

My youngest is Lilia Joy - we also had the middle name first.

I think any name ending in a or n goes great with Joy.

Luckily, it looks like you still have plenty of time to decide on a name!

Come on now, OP, you've got to give us name mavens something more to work with here. Are you looking for a Biblical name, literary allusion, geographical, classic, trendy, old-fashioned, highly unusual...what?

lol sorry guys, started snowing here and i got distracted! i have picked tons of names. among them caroline, kinsey, macy, eva.... probably 10 more on top of those. dh doesnt like any of them except evelyn and lucille. i like lucy, but i am not crazy about lucille. evelyn is alright, but i want a couple more options to ponder. im going to ask him what he thinks of eden. he said MAYBE to caroline, so that may be another option. i like all kinds of names, which is why i came here to ask. lol.

Lucille is terrific! And you've got your Lucy as a nickname built right in.

Oh I like the name Evelyn! If you don't like the name Lucille, would you like something like Lucia? You can still have Lucy as the nickname.

Hannah Joy. Rebecca Joy. Samantha Joy- anything 2 or more syllables.

Of the ones you've posted, I like Evelyn Joy.

Another option for using Lucy would be Lucinda....Lucinda Joy sounds pretty good!

Kelly, wife to DH, mom to Caden Reese (10-2-06), Tessa Brynn (12-26-08 ), and Maddox Quinn (7-16-11). Fur-mama to Finnegan, Ripley, Raisin (my little kitty amputee) and Kimchi. 748/2011, 2028/2012-I did it!! 2023/2013-Again!!! 404/2014

Ayla Joy.

That was going to be the name of my third daughter if I would have had one (unfortunately I had to have a hysterectomy) but I LOVE that name and I really love that MIDDLE name.

I also love Evelyn and Evelyn Joy is lovely!

I like the ones you've picked. We didn't decide for sure on DD2's name until she was born, though.
