I don't see them name their baby Tiffany. I think they go for another clear and short name, maybe with a touch of tradition but not too much.
Emma. Or Julie. Or something with Z (although there are not many options for names with z)

Zoe, Zelda, Zephyr, Zita, Zena... but Im not sure if they'd use another Z name.. they might want to use Zara as her second name
I don't think that Tiffany is very likely....

Its pretty standard etiquette in most countries for the last few decades that a married woman be referred to by her own first name. The days of Mr John Smith's wife being Mrs John Smith are considered antiquated not proper by most people. My parents have been married for 45 years, if someone called my mother Mrs William... she'd not respond. She joined his family, she didn't give up her identity.
Traditions really differ between countries. In Latin American countries (and Spain and probably Portugal as well) married women keep their full name after marriage and might decide to add their husband's paternal last name as a third last name by adding 'de [paternal last name husband]'.

In some countries (Britain included) women traditionally completely gave up their (last) name. In the US it is not uncommon to see women adopt their husband's surname and adopt their maiden name as their middle name and in doing so giving up their original middle name. In the Netherlands last names would be hyphenated with 'last name husband - maiden name wife'. In for example Canada they seem to do the same but in the oppossite order.

The Scandinavian countries (or st least their courts) seem to follow the British practice.

I don't know the practice in other Latin American countries,but, in Brazil, married women keep only their paternal family name followed by their husband's last name. The maternal family name is usually dropped. If they divorce, they normally revert back to their full maiden name.

I really like Emma! I also really like Ava, Ella and Lily that were mentioned in this thread before. Very cute names.



I'd add Olivia, Chloe and Sienna on the list for possible names and I'd add Sophia for second name. Little Mia gets grace, This little one gets wisdom.

Its not a very common practice to hyphenate in Canada. Majority of women either take their husband's name OR they keep their Maiden name. Some couples choose to Both hyphenate their name, or at least for their kids.

My point being the idea that if Rose Adams married James Smith, she would now be Mrs James Smith is out dated. Even in 'polite' society in Canada, Rose would be Mrs Rose Smith, Ms Rose Adams, Mrs Rose Smith-Adams, Mrs Rose Adams-Smith......but not Mrs James Smith. And its not some 'new trendy thing'. Been that way for decades.

You are joining a family. That is why you take your husband's Family name. You aren't joining your husband's body, so you don't take his personal name. Your husband's first name is not his title. Its not like The wife of the Duke taking the title Duchess. A first name is not a title. Mr/Mrs/Miss/Dr these are titles.

It is true that women in Portugal never give up their maiden names, and if they marry and decide to have their husband's family name, it adds to the women's full name. But I disagree with (de), women just add their husband's family name, they don't put "de" unless the husband's name already has "de". As for tradition, I think it wasn't mandatory, but on my mom's time, it was common to accept the husband's family name. Even today, most of the women I know that married, they choose to add their husband's family name to their's. Also, third last name...where did you get this info? There is no one that will have two names and then add the husband's family name to make it three (unless the mother and father share the same family name; I had a friend who was called Ana Beatriz Viegas only, if their parents went just with one given name, she would have 2 names; but this is rare). Everyone in Portugal has the mother's family name and father's family name, that makes three names, so if marry and add the husband's name, it will become fourth (my mom had 5 names originally, now she has 6 name after she was married. I have 4 now, if I get married and choose to use my husdand's name, I'll have 5 names in total).

Throwing my hat into the ring for a name guess. I just heard it on TV and thought it would be a good name for Zara and Mike's new baby girl. Sierra.

That's my guess and I'm sticking with it. Maybe Zara and Mike are at home watching the same show.

The Scandinavian courts refer to women by their own first name, in contrast to the British court. For example:

Quote:
Mr Walther L. Sommerlath and Mrs Ingrid Sommerlath

[...]

Mrs Tatjana d'Abo and Mr Henry d'Abo

Every time I see this thread pop up among the "recent discussions", I hope it's because a name has been announced

I could imagine them going for something like Olive, Ivy, Poppy or Thea. And I think Rose as a middle name is a pretty good guess. Philippa would be perfect considering how Mike's dad and Zara's grandfather are both Philip and Zara's maiden name is Phillips, but I don't know that I think it's their style.

I thought about Olive too. I wasn’t sure they would choose it but it’s cute and trendy.
