A middle name for Jane...

I think I have picked a first name for our soon-to-be born third child-[name_f]Jane[/name_f]. I think the name ages well, has a simple eloquence, and, although people like of it as common, I have never met a young [name_f]Jane[/name_f]. I am hoping you all can help me with a middle name. I have a few ideas, but would love input or new suggestions. Our last name is [name_m]Patrick[/name_m]. Thank you!!

[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_u]Flannery[/name_u]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_u]Ellis[/name_u]

I totally agree with your thought process on [name_f]Jane[/name_f]. What a lovely and unexpected choice nowadays!

Out of your choices, I think [name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] is pretty. Very romantic. [name_u]Flannery[/name_u] and [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] are very unattractive and underwhelming to me.

Suggestions:
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Lydia[/name_f]

I like [name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_u]Flannery[/name_u]… what about…

[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Isabella[/name_f]

[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_u]Meredith[/name_u]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Penelope[/name_f]

Hmm… I do think it sounds best with a 3±syllable middle name, but I did include a few shorter ones in here too:

Wow! That is quite the list. There are a lot of names there I would have never thought of-thank you! I agree that the 3 syllables makes it flow better. It will take me some time to go through all of these. I appreciate it.

[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] is interesting. We live in [name_f]Virginia[/name_f] and it would be a nod to the area. Thank you!

Thank you! I love [name_f]Lydia[/name_f] and had considered it for a first name. I will add it to a mn option.

[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] was a beautiful suggestion. Sweet Combination.

I love the name [name_u]Flannery[/name_u], but with the last name [name_m]Patrick[/name_m], both [name_u]Flannery[/name_u] and [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] sound like double barrelled last names: [name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_u]Flannery[/name_u]-[name_m]Patrick[/name_m], [name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_u]Ellis[/name_u]-[name_m]Patrick[/name_m].

I think [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] is more in contrast with [name_f]Jane[/name_f] than it is complimentary. It’s beautiful, but I’d probably go for something a little bit more grounded. [name_m]Just[/name_m] a touch, though! Sorry for any repeats.

[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Amabel[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Marigold[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Priscilla[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Cecily[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Letitia[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Lydia[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Clarissa[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Isobel[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Felicity[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Claudia[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Rebecca[/name_f]

I like [name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_u]Ellis[/name_u]. But I like [name_u]Flannery[/name_u] [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] together better and it might be better to log it away for some other day.
I suggest [name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_u]Albany[/name_u] or [name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Cressida[/name_f]

I agree! This one stood out to me right away!

[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f]

[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Calliope[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Delilah[/name_f]

Great ideas! You all are so good at thinking about how these names work together. I will happily take your advice!

A friend just had a [name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f]. I think that’s so sweet!

[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Lillian[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Catherine[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_u]Eloise[/name_u]

[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Philippa[/name_f]
[name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Louisa[/name_f]

My almost 4-year old niece is [name_f]Jane[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f] and I think that combination works well-- they are both names that honor women in my family so I really like the connection too.
