🌷 a middle name for magnolia

Hello, Berries! :sparkles:

I suppose it was always a matter of time until I fell in love with this floral, [name_u]Southern[/name_u] beauty! [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] is on my mind most of the day and creeping up next to [name_u]Juniper[/name_u] and [name_f]Luella[/name_f] on my list.

I’m having a harder time finding a middle name I love with [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f]. I’ve considered [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_u]Sage[/name_u], [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_u]Bliss[/name_u], and [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_f]Fawn[/name_f], but none feel quite right.

I was hoping you all could help! I’m looking for a short middle name that is sweet, whimsical, naturey and/or free-spirited! I’m also open to more common middles. E.g. [name_f]Kate[/name_f], [name_u]June[/name_u], and [name_f]Bea[/name_f].

Thank you for all your help! It feels so good to be posting again! :orange_heart:

[name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] came to mind right away. I know some people say [name_f]Grace[/name_f] can be sort of a filler middle, but to me it really fits here!! [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] is soooo pretty.

Yippee for a [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] post! I’m so glad to see you post again, too. 🫶🏼

[name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] does feel totally you. I think it’s quite a sweet pair with [name_u]Juniper[/name_u] and [name_f]Luella[/name_f] — particularly with [name_f]Luella[/name_f].

@Ellory suggested the name [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_f]Beth[/name_f] to me just earlier today, and I feel like that totally fits the bill here! Punchy and whimsical, all at once. Suuuper Southern-sweet!

@LoneStar I absolutely agree! [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_u]Greer[/name_u], [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_u]Reese[/name_u], [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_u]Clarke[/name_u], and [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_m]Hart[/name_m] are lovely. I really like how the more androgynous middles compliment her frilly side!

@EagleEyes These are some of the most whimsical middles I’ve seen! [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_f]Birdie[/name_f], [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_u]Fifer[/name_u], and [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_u]Cloud[/name_u] are so fun!

@Victory55 Oh! To be called [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_f]Moon[/name_f] would be a dream come true. I also love your suggestions of [name_u]Wren[/name_u], [name_u]Jade[/name_u], and [name_u]Rain[/name_u]. You can never go wrong with a nature name, IMO!

@graciebobacie [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] came to mind for me as well. It’s a very sweet honor for my mom and I actually, so that makes me love it. “Filler” middles can be so timeless and sweet!

@snowmaiden [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_f]Beth[/name_f] is so strong! [name_f]Beth[/name_f] is actually my dear aunt’s middle name, so that gives it extra points! From your gorgeous list, [name_u]Wilde[/name_u], [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f], [name_f]Blythe[/name_f], [name_u]Winter[/name_u], and [name_f]Ruth[/name_f] stand out most to me. Thank you so much, [name_u]Hazel[/name_u], It’s always a joy to read your posts!

Thank you all! :art:

@clair.de.lune [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_u]James[/name_u] and [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_f]Belle[/name_f] are so [name_u]Southern[/name_u] and sweet.

@lovelye Such lovely middles! I think [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] and [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] are my favorites. They’re so darling for a little girl!

@Ehrob1 [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_u]Skye[/name_u] might be one of my favorites I’ve seen so far!

@Katkraft Thank you for including both one and two syllable names! I am loving [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] and [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_f]Helen[/name_f]. They are both family names for me!

@Greyblue I love the more spunky middles you chose! [name_f]Tess[/name_f], [name_f]Gwen[/name_f], and [name_f]Prue[/name_f] pair so well with [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f]!

Thank you all! :potted_plant:

[name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] is gorgeous.

[name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] has its fair share of vowels, and my first thought is a short, one syllable name with a contrasting vowel sound ie one not yet used would be best. [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u] / [name_u]Rune[/name_u] is great, or something with a strong E such as [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_f]Eve[/name_f], though admittedly the vowel running onto vowel isn’t totally ideal.

[name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] / [name_f]Mae[/name_f] / [name_f]May[/name_f] could give the super adorable nn [name_f]Maggie[/name_f] [name_f]May[/name_f].

You could use either [name_u]Kim[/name_u] or Ravenal, from the musical Show Boat:

[name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] [name_u]Kim[/name_u] (Kim was Magnolia’s daughter with [name_m]Gaylord[/name_m] Ravenal)
