Our little girl's name

For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to use our family name of Bratton for a middle name for one of our baby's. It is my great grandmother's name and I have always loved it for some reason. Now that I am really pregnant and it's a girl, I started looking at other names and I have found some that I really like as well and go better with Moira. I love the name Moira more and more everyday. At first I wasn't sure, but now I absolutely love it. So I went looking for Gaelic girls names to go with Moira just for fun one day and I found the name Rowan. I love it!!! It's so pretty and it fits really nicely with Moira. I am back and forth about what to use now, but I am really leaning towards Rowan for her middle name.
I am also the biggest dork because of my husband the Lord of the Rings lover he is. I love two names from that story/movie Arwen and Eowyn. They are just so pretty and I am a dork I know, but I love them!!:) I think we will probably stick with Rowan though.
