Arabella Grace Elizabeth?


We have been having a lot of trouble deciding on a middle name for [name_f]Arabella[/name_f]. I think we’ve narrowed it down to [name_f]Grace[/name_f] and [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] (both family members we’d really like to honor) but having trouble deciding between the two! We are also hesitant to use [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] because the end of [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] seems to run together with it. Today I thought of a possible solution! Could we use them as a double middle name: [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]? Or would it be too over the top?! Our last name is very short: [name_f]Lu[/name_f].

Any advice would be very much appreciated!!

I think [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] is beautiful, but I would personally use [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f]! Have you thought of using a variant of [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] that doesn’t quite run in with [name_f]Arabella[/name_f]? Like [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Betsy[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f], or [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Libby[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f], something along those lines? Also, [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f]/[name_f]Annalise[/name_f]/[name_f]Annelise[/name_f] is technically a combination of [name_f]Anna[/name_f]/[name_f]Anne[/name_f] (meaning ‘grace’) and [name_f]Lise[/name_f], which is a form of [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]. [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] is very pretty imo, if you don’t mind alliteration.

I think its lovely but would swap the middle names around- [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f]!

[name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] is lovely! Though I do prefer [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f]. I also like a pp’s suggestion of [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f].

I second everyone’s opinions that [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] has a bit more flow to it. I also like lawsonhaley’s suggestion of using a variant of [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] like [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Libby[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] or [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Annalise[/name_f].

I agree that [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] has a better flow. I would keep [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] rather than use a variation. I like [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f].

[name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] is beautiful, and whilst I would usually prefer the one syllable name at the end, with a one syllable surname I think the flow is much better as it is (if that makes sense). I absolutely love [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] by the way!

I love your name just the way you have it. It is almost regal!

Keep [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] just as it is; it flows so nicely with your surname.

I think it’s great! [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] is a gorgeous name!

I think [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] is beautiful, though I also prefer the flow of [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f]. [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] seems a little long, however even though it’s the same amount of middle names, [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] feels shorter.

[name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] is so so so gorgeous!!!

[name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Elisabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Lu[/name_f] is PURE [name_f]HEAVEN[/name_f] (Sorry, my [name_f]Sister[/name_f]'s Name is spelt [name_f]Elisabeth[/name_f] and I just CANNOT bring myself to spell it with a “z”!)!! :slight_smile:

Hmm. When I think of all four names together—[name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Lu[/name_f]—I like that the longer names are separated by the shorter names & vice versa. When I just think of the fn & mns, I prefer [name_f]Grace[/name_f] at the end. I really like the previous suggestion of [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f]!

[name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] seems to flow better to me, but I quite like [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]. It works nicely with your surname.

Not my style, but it’s a lovely name!

I think [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Lu[/name_f] is brilliant! I wouldn’t go for [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f], just because [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Lu[/name_f] is a bit stilted, and since [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]'s emphasis isn’t on the first syllable (air-ah-[name_u]BELL[/name_u]-ah [name_f]GRACE[/name_f] eh-[name_f]LIZ[/name_f]-ah-beth), I don’t find [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] to have negative flow at all. In fact, I love the fluidity of it with [name_f]Lu[/name_f]!

I like [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] and [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f], but I love [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]! It’s perfection.

We named our first daughter [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] so I am very biased!! Gorgeous names but agree if you are including [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f], I would put it before the [name_f]Grace[/name_f].

I find [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] to be too much name. I know a lot of people are saying that it has great flow, but to my tongue and ear it does not! I like each name on it’s own, or either middle name with [name_f]Arabella[/name_f]. If I had to choose from your options I would say [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f], but I like the idea a PP gave you of [name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Annaliese[/name_f].

[name_f]Lovely[/name_f] names. I prefer [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] before [name_f]Grace[/name_f]. I think these work, too:

[name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Liza[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Lu[/name_f]
[name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_f]Lu[/name_f]
[name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]-[name_u]Gray[/name_u] [name_f]Lu[/name_f]
[name_f]Arabella[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]-Grai [name_f]Lu[/name_f]

Good luck!
