1-2 syllable middles for Aurora?

[name]Aurora[/name] has been on and off my list for a while now, but I keep coming back to it, inspired by the beautiful Northern Lights.

The problem is finding a middle name that fits without being R-heavy or too hippie-ish (Ex: [name]Aurora[/name] [name]Skye[/name]). Here is my short list… I’d appreciate feedback and suggestions! (Our last name is 3 syllables and begins with B, so a 1-2 syllable name would fit best.)

[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] (too R-heavy?)
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name] (is [name]Beatrix[/name] pronounced Bea-trix or Be-a-trix? If it’s 3 syllables it won’t work for us.)
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Plum[/name] (total GP name for me, I’d probably never really use it… I can’t picture an angst-ridden teenager with such a sugary name, lol)

ETA: Aurora Violet (forgot this one when I initially posted, but again I wonder if it is in that “hippy-dippy” range?)

We can’t use middles such as [name]June[/name], [name]Mae[/name], etc for various reasons, and I don’t like [name]Grace[/name] or [name]Rose[/name] (which are R-heavy besides). I’m also not interested in borrowing names from our family tree as it’s not my style and I don’t want DS to feel left out since neither his first nor middle name honor anyone in our families.

Any other suggestions are much appreciated =)

I like [name]Aurora[/name] [name]Blythe[/name] best of your list. I pronounce [name]Beatrix[/name] with three syllables. And here are a few more suggestions:
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Blair[/name]
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Brooke[/name] (maybe that is too hippy?)
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Faye[/name]
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Clare[/name]
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Yvonne[/name]
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Elise[/name]
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Brielle[/name]

[name]Beatrix[/name] is 3 syllables.

[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Blythe[/name] is really nice, one I could see using myself even. [name]Aurora[/name] [name]Maeve[/name] is too but I think I like [name]Blythe[/name] that little bit more.

Other ideas:

[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Simone[/name]

I like [name]Aurora[/name] [name]Blythe[/name] the most from your list. From the suggestions so far, [name]Aurora[/name] [name]Clare[/name]/[name]Claire[/name] is my favourite.
I was going to suggest [name]Aurora[/name] [name]Maud[/name], but that’s a bit -au- heavy. Also considered [name]Aurora[/name] Bloom which I love, but is probably to hippie-ish or strange for you.

Wow, thanks for all the great responses, everyone! When I have some more time I’ll come back and post my favorites. You all rock! =)

OK, here are my faves:

[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Violet[/name]
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Claire[/name]
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Delphine[/name]
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Elin[/name] (spelled this way rather than [name]Ellen[/name])
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Daphne[/name] (is this too mythological of a combo, though?)
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Noelle[/name]
[name]Aurora[/name] [name]Celeste[/name] (too sky-related/hippy?)

What are your favorites from this new short list?

[name]Blythe[/name], [name]Claire[/name] and [name]Noelle[/name] are my favourites :slight_smile:
[name]Elin[/name] is quite common in Scandinavia, and here it’s not pronounced like [name]Ellen[/name] at all so that seems a little unnatural to me. You can listen to it here: http://www.forvo.com/word/elin/#no

Ditto… [name]Blythe[/name], [name]Claire[/name], and [name]Noelle[/name] are my favorites, too!
