A Middle Name for Emmeline

I’m recently stuck on [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f]. I’m just kind of bouncing around my list, and at the moment, this is what sticks out to me.

[name_f]My[/name_f] one concern with it, however, is a middle name! It’s a family tradition to pick the middle name to honor family members, and its one my husband and I would like to stick with.

However, nothing sounds good with [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] that also honors family. We honored my husband’s side with our first born, so hoping to honor my side with this one.

I’d prefer a name that sounds like similar to a family member’s name, or is a derivative of it. Same meanings are okay, but I would love it even more if the connection was immediately obvious.

Family I would potentially like to honor:

[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Ana[/name_f]

[name_f]Jessica[/name_f] [name_f]May[/name_f]

[name_f]Kristin[/name_f] [name_u]Marie[/name_u]

[name_m]Kelvin[/name_m] [name_u]Murray[/name_u]

I can’t think of anything that sounds okay. [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_f]May[/name_f] is very “M” heavy, I feel. [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_f]Ana[/name_f] or [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_u]Anne[/name_u] don’t flow very well. [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_f]Kristin[/name_f] or [name_f]Christine[/name_f] doesn’t sound good. [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_u]Marie[/name_u], just doesn’t have a spark. [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_u]Jess[/name_u] or [name_f]Jessa[/name_f] is meh. [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_u]Kelly[/name_u], maaaaaybe? It doesn’t scream yes. [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] is cute but its sooooooo many syllables. Same goes for [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_f]Marianna[/name_f]. I’m just at a loss.

[name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] is lovely! I actually love [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_f]May[/name_f] as a combo; I don’t find it too tongue-twister-y at all. I like [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_u]Kelly[/name_u] a lot too, but it sounds like it’s not standing out to you. Tweaking [name_u]Marie[/name_u] to [name_f]Mary[/name_f] makes it feel a bit fresher to me as a middle–I love [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_f]Mary[/name_f]. And to me that could honor [name_u]Murray[/name_u], too. [name_u]Or[/name_u] would you use [name_u]Murray[/name_u] as a middle? [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_u]Murray[/name_u] would be a sweet, unexpected combo!

[name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_f]Mary[/name_f]

[name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_f]Kirsty[/name_f]

I like [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_f]May[/name_f] best personally! Plus [name_f]May[/name_f] honors three people, potentially… the [name_f]May[/name_f], [name_u]Marie[/name_u], and [name_u]Murray[/name_u]. [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] or [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_f]Beth[/name_f] would be cute! [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] is gorgeous to me, but I get that it is a long one!
