It's been a hot minute since I've been active on this site, but I need some outside advice on baby #3's name. I have a son (J) and a daughter (E). We have narrowed it down to Mia or Lena for baby girl's name.
I'm partial to Lena because (and this is a stretch), but my grandma's name is Marlene, and I like that Lena can kind of honor her. However, when I mentioned Lena to my MIL, she made a disgusted face. And, yes, I realize it's my kid, but my MIL is the kind of person who would tell my daughter she hates her name. Mia is a name that my daughter has called the baby long before we even knew it was a girl. The problem is that I had a cat growing up named Mia. We would like the middle name to be either Kathleen or Ann (both significant family names).
Lena Kathleen, Lena Ann
Mia Kathleen, Mia Ann
**I will be editing later to take out full names.
