My husband and I can’t seem to figure out which name we like best so I thought I would run the names by you lovely ladies 🙂
Possible middle names would be Grace, Ann or Mae.
Willa, although a strange name, was my great grandmother’s name, so there’s sentimental value there. The only problem I have with it is that it’s hard to enunciate. People always think I’m saying “Willow” or “Wilma” instead.
Caroline is just a sweet name that we heard one time and fell in love with.
Madison is a name that I’ve always liked, and my husband likes as well.
ETA: Our last name is pronounced “Bock”

Caroline is the only one I like.

Cute names! I think Madison Mae would be adorable. I also tend to like names that can be shortened so in this instance, Maddie or something like that would work.

Love love love Caroline!
Madison is super popular, so I vote no, and Willa is cute, but I just like Caroline better.

I like Willa a lot. Madison seems super common right now and Caroline makes me think both of an old nun who taught my high school physics class and the Neil Diamond song.

I definitely like Caroline the most.

I voted Caroline (I hear it as Cara- line, not Caro-lynn) (before I read your post) b/c Madison is so common in my area. It’s become trendy. After finding out that Willa is a family name, I’d change my vote or at least hope that you use it. My mother named my sister and I after our grandmothers and it means so much, even though my middle name is completely unheard of today. I love discovering personality traits and strengths that I have in common with her.

I’m gonna go off the list and vote for Willow Grace. I love the name Madison, but Madison Bock sounds like an injury attorney firm name to me. Second choice for me is Caroline Ann (could be shortened to Carol Ann).

I would say no to Madison because it’s too popular now. I have a super popular name (for my birth year) and I hate it! It’s soo common and 5 girls in every class had my name. Now that I’m a professional it’s hard to be taken seriously in emails because they can pinpoint my age from my name.

You can always echange the middle names like this:

I like Willa and Caroline. Madison is little over played (in my experience at least) but still pretty.

@jjmomma: I share a middle name with one of my grandmother’s, and I feel the same way as you do.
@inspiredcreations: I couldn’t help but laugh at that. Good point though.
@PinkMagnolia: I completely understand. I have the same problem with my name. 🙁

If you can’t decide why not wait until your LO arrives and get to meet her first? My friend just did this with her daughter…Her and her husband could not decide between 5 different names. They finally picked a name the night before the left the hospital after spending a few days with their new addition.
For what it is worth, I like Caroline Willa the best! Good luck!
