Adriana Juniper and Emily __________ What works in the middle?

[name]Hi[/name] Everyone!

Thank you for helping us name our dear daughter. The name - [name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] - fits her perfectly! I know it is a little early for this, but I was wondering if you could help us find a suitable middle name for her sister. I’m at a loss!

Her first name will be [name]Emily[/name] (my husband’s absolute favorite name), but I would like her middle name to match the spunk of her sister’s middle name. It doesn’t have to be a nature name, but I do lean towards names that have natural or word meanings. Extra bonus for a name that starts with “C” (for the initials ECO :slight_smile: or for a name that has letters that are both above and below the line when written (for example, the “p” is below the line and makes the name [name]Juniper[/name] more appealing in my opinion).

Thanks so much! :slight_smile:

The name [name]Emily[/name] is actually a guilty pleasure of mine. There are SO many Emilys around now that I wouldn’t use it without an iron-clad reason like yours, but I still think it’s a beautiful name.

So how about …

[name]Emily[/name] [name]Cora[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Cordelia[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Philippa[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Indigo[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]May[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Johanna[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Lauren[/name]/[name]Laurel[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Garland[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Eliza[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Caoimhe[/name] (or [name]Keeva[/name])
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Daisy[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Daphne[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Zinnia[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Octavia[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Ophelia[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Thisbe[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Sapphire[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Petra[/name]

Okay - going to make myself stop now - there are so many great combos with [name]Emily[/name]! Good luck!

A lot of names work with [name]Emily[/name]. Sticking with nature names. Preferences for the bonus points. :slight_smile:

[name]Emily[/name] [name]Cassia[/name] (the tree cinnamon is from)
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Coral[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Celestia[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Cerise[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Sequoia[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Ilana[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Margeurite[/name] (“daisy” in French, above and below the line)
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Magnolia[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Jessamine[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Amaryllis[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Azalea[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Iris[/name]

It doesn’t fit your criteria, but [name]Aster[/name] was the first name that came to mind. [name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Aster[/name] sound nice. And when you look at the two names together, [name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] has only rhe “p” below the line, and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Aster[/name] has the “y”. So, one letter below the line each :o)

[name]Emily[/name] [name]Carys[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Camryn[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Cypress[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Magnolia[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Teagan[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Tulip[/name]

I love the combo [name]Emily[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] but it doesn’t fit your requirement.

Here are some suggestions:
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Clover[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Camelia[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Chloe[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Cordelia[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Petra[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Penelope[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Lucille[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Coralie[/name]/[name]Carol[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Clementine[/name]

My favorite with a ‘c’ is [name]Celeste[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Celeste[/name]. I also like the suggestion of [name]Clover[/name].
For a non ‘c’ name, I like [name]Emily[/name] [name]Avalon[/name]. Good luck!

[name]Love[/name] some of the suggestions, and really just wanna second [name]Emily[/name] [name]Indigo[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Clementine[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Magnolia[/name]! They were the first names I thought of and definitely have the spunk of the wonderful [name]Juniper[/name], especially [name]Indigo[/name]!

[name]Emily[/name] [name]Zaria[/name] (means rose)
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Seraphine[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Jessamyn[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Cleo[/name] (ECO)
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Wren[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Marigold[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Cosette[/name] (ECO)
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Holland[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Primrose[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Sonnet[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Soleil[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Vida[/name] (life)
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Kerensa[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Tallulah[/name]

Good luck, and [name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] is beautiful! :slight_smile:

[name]Will[/name] second/third [name]Emily[/name] [name]Indigo[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Ophelia[/name]!

[name]Emily[/name] [name]Hyacinth[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Camilla[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Delphine[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Hazel[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Magnolia[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Aspen[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Bryony[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Iris[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Huckleberry[/name] (Okay that’s a lot, I don’t know why it popped into my head, but it did, so I’m throwing it on the end of the list for kicks! Maybe it’ll inspire something else…Mulberry? Maybe not)

My first thought was [name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Piper[/name]

[name]Emily[/name] [name]Josephina[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Rosabelle[/name]

[name]Emily[/name] [name]Linnea[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Claire[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Poppy[/name]

The first thing that came to mind was [name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Meadow[/name] :slight_smile:

[name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Callista[/name]
[name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Capucine[/name]
[name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Cinnamon[/name]
[name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Clover[/name]
[name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Coral[/name]
[name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Camelia[/name]
[name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Cyane[/name]

For the ECO initials:

[name]Emily[/name] [name]Calla[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Cricket[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Caledonia[/name] (not strictly a “nature name”, but it is a neat place name)

[name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] and …

[name]Emily[/name] [name]Catarina[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Celestina[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Corvina[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Cecilia[/name]

[name]Emily[/name] [name]Carolina[/name]

[name]Emily[/name] [name]Cassidy[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Coraline[/name]

Others without the “C” middle name:

[name]Emily[/name] [name]Paquita[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Oriana[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Suzanna[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Katarina[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Kendra[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Kalliope[/name] or [name]Calliope[/name]

[name]Emily[/name] Skylark for something quite quirky?

@gatoamiga: [name]Emily[/name] is my daughter’s name, so I am happy to see someone else using it!

I starred my favorites for you.

[name]Hi[/name] Everyone! Thank you so much for your thoughtful replies! :slight_smile:

princessnoribori - I’m so glad you also like the name [name]Emily[/name]! [name]Reading[/name] your post made my day! My husband wanted to use [name]Emily[/name] for our daughter born in [name]January[/name], but we went with his second favorite name - [name]Adriana[/name]. Hopefully by the time we have another daughter, [name]Emily[/name] will be less popular. Fortunately, it is a classic-popular name rather than trendy-popular, at least in my opinion. Your suggestion of [name]Emily[/name] [name]Indigo[/name] has received a lot of seconds by other responders and I really do love it. However, do you think it will sound odd with a last name that begins with “O”? I also love [name]Emily[/name] [name]Zinnia[/name], but do you think having EZ as the first two initials is a problem? Other favorites of your suggestions - [name]Emily[/name] [name]Johanna[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Josephine[/name], and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Garland[/name] - too bad EGO would be her initials! :slight_smile:

stripedsocks - I love [name]Emily[/name] [name]Cerise[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Jessamine[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Iris[/name]. I adore your other suggestions as individual names, but I worry about the flow with [name]Emily[/name]

delissa - [name]Emily[/name] [name]Aster[/name] does sound great with [name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name]. I wish I could like [name]Aster[/name] as much as [name]Juniper[/name], but I don’t yet. It might grow on me! [name]Emily[/name] [name]Carys[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Cypress[/name] are dynamite.

niusity - I love [name]Emily[/name] [name]Clover[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Camellia[/name]…also [name]Emily[/name] [name]Clementine[/name], but is there too much “em” sound in this combo?

random - Thanks for the additions of [name]Emily[/name] [name]Avalon[/name] - awesome!

ljandrl - Thank you for your kind words about our daughter’s name! I love your suggestions of [name]Emily[/name] [name]Wren[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Tallulah[/name], especially, but you gave a variety of intriguing combinations.

lineska - I love [name]Emily[/name] [name]Hyacinth[/name] - a guilty pleasure for me - and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Aspen[/name]!

karenp - [name]Emily[/name] [name]Piper[/name] is cute. Is it too much like [name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name]?

halfkoreangirl - [name]Emily[/name] [name]Linnea[/name] is a major favorite! I also love [name]Emily[/name] [name]Carys[/name].

dillonsfan01 - [name]Emily[/name] [name]Meadow[/name] is amazing!

emiliaj - [name]Emily[/name] [name]Callista[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Clover[/name], and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Camellia[/name] strike my fancy!

esrever88 - [name]Love[/name] [name]Emily[/name] [name]Caledonia[/name]!

holst - Great suggestions! I love [name]Emily[/name] [name]Cadenza[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Callista[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Corinna[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Coraline[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Suzanna[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Calliope[/name], among others!

msbreeze - [name]Emily[/name] Skylark is a fabulous suggestion! [name]Love[/name] it!

kyemsma - I love your daughter’s name! :slight_smile: I adore [name]Emily[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]…is it too “normal” compared to [name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name]? [name]Emily[/name] [name]Cosima[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] [name]Violet[/name] also charm me!

Any other suggestions? What do you think of [name]Emily[/name] Nightingale? Is that too out there?

Thanks again!

[name]Emily[/name]'s a great name. I like [name]Emily[/name] Nightingale!

Few more thoughts I think weren’t suggested:
[name]Emily[/name] Foxglove
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Tansy[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Marigold[/name] (but initials [name]Emo[/name]?)

A few C ones I don’t think were given, but don’t mean to copy if they were:
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Cedar[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] Carnation
[name]Emily[/name] Chrysanthemum
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Crisanta[/name] (Spanish for Chrysanthemum, I think)
[name]Emily[/name] Cardinal
[name]Emily[/name] Chickadee (too cute, although rhymey…)
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Calla[/name] (a kind of lily)

@gatoamiga: [name]Glad[/name] you like [name]Emily[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] (actually my daughter’s full name!;)), but you may be right - next to [name]Adriana[/name] [name]Juniper[/name], it may be too “normal.”
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Violet[/name] was the first combo to come to my mind for you! I find [name]Emily[/name] Nightingale pretty, actually! It may be a bit of a mouthful, though.

Did anyone suggest:

[name]Emily[/name] [name]Paloma
Emily Carys[/name]
[name]Emily[/name] [name]Starling
Emily Skye[/name]

Let us know what you decide!

Yay for [name]Emily[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]! Beautiful!

I really like [name]Emily[/name] [name]Carys[/name], but my husband thinks [name]Carys[/name] is a strange name :frowning: [name]Emily[/name] [name]Violet[/name] and [name]Emily[/name] Nightingale are on the list along with [name]Emily[/name] [name]Willow[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Rosemary[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Daisy[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Acacia[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Indigo[/name], [name]Emily[/name] [name]Wren[/name], and a few others. I really love [name]Paloma[/name], but I need to let it grow on me as a combo with [name]Emily[/name].

Thanks so much for your help!
