Autumn Inspired Middle Names

Now that we have a list of eleven names I want to start thinking about middles. Since the baby is due in [name_u]November[/name_u] I thought it would be sweet if she had some sort of [name_f]Autumn[/name_f] themed middle name. Each name has a different feel and imagery to me so I tried to stick to what matched in my mind the best.

[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Laurel[/name_f]/[name_u]Juniper[/name_u]/[name_u]Rowan[/name_u]
[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Aurora[/name_f]/[name_u]Rowan[/name_u]/[name_f]Aurelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] nn [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] or [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] [name_u]Artemis[/name_u]
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f]/[name_u]Ember[/name_u]
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] [name_f]Willow[/name_f]/[name_f]Olive[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_m]Birch[/name_m]/[name_m]Branch[/name_m]/[name_m]Pine[/name_m]/[name_u]Oak[/name_u]/[name_u]Cedar[/name_u]/[name_u]Adair[/name_u] (I love tree names with [name_f]Josephine[/name_f])
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_f]Maple[/name_f]/[name_f]Wren[/name_f]
[name_f]Delphine[/name_f] [name_f]Oriana[/name_f]/[name_f]Oriel[/name_f]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f]/[name_u]Artemis[/name_u]
[name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] [name_f]Persephone[/name_f]/[name_f]Saffron[/name_f]
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_u]Sage[/name_u]/[name_f]Aurelia[/name_f]/[name_f]Oriel[/name_f]

Any favorites/suggestions/thoughts?

[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f]

These are my favorites:

[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Laurel[/name_f]

[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Aurora[/name_f]

[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] [name_u]Ember[/name_u]

[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] [name_f]Willow[/name_f]

[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_f]Wren[/name_f] OR [name_f]Maple[/name_f]- I have never thought about [name_f]Maple[/name_f]… BUT I have to say, [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_f]Maple[/name_f] is cute, different but cute. If you want something different, def. choose [name_f]Maple[/name_f]. :]

[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f]

[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Aurora[/name_f].

And it isn’t one of your combos, but I love [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_u]Adair[/name_u]!

like from your list:
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Laurel[/name_f]
[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] - great sound and meaning but reminds me of gone with the wind [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] O’[name_f]Hara[/name_f] - and mn [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] as in “golden” is too colorful,
would prefer [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] or use [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] as a first name for example [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] :slight_smile:
[name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] nn [name_u]Ruby[/name_u] - very elegant full name and creative nn!
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f]
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] [name_f]Willow[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] - love [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] but not the tree middles you mentioned. Why not [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Maple[/name_f] - nn [name_u]Josie[/name_u]-[name_f]May[/name_f] ?
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_f]Maple[/name_f]/[name_f]Wren[/name_f] - like them both
[name_f]Delphine[/name_f] [name_f]Oriana[/name_f]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] - elegant with spunky nn options
[name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] - like it on its own but together with [name_f]Persephone[/name_f] it’s too much of a mouthful to me and personally do not like [name_f]Saffron[/name_f]

From your combos these are my favorite of each: (I underlined the best).
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_u]Rowan[/name_u]
[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] [name_u]Ember[/name_u]
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] [name_f]Willow[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_u]Adair[/name_u]
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_f]Wren[/name_f]
[name_f]Delphine[/name_f] [name_f]Oriana[/name_f]
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f]

These I think could do with some work:
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f]/[name_u]Artemis[/name_u] - the flow on both of these is off to me - how about:
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_f]Willow[/name_f]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_u]Waverly[/name_u]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_f]Hadas[/name_f]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_f]Ivy[/name_f]

[name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] [name_f]Persephone[/name_f]/[name_f]Saffron[/name_f] - I adore [name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] but [name_f]Persephone[/name_f] and [name_f]Saffron[/name_f] don’t feel quite right - how about:
[name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f]
[name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] [name_f]Viola[/name_f]
[name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] Wenhaver
[name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] [name_f]Cornelia[/name_f]

  • [name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] (I know she’s not a fall name but it works so well)

I [name_f]LOVE[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] nn [name_u]Ruby[/name_u]!!!

My favorite combos for each name:
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Laurel[/name_f]
[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Aurora[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] [name_u]Ember[/name_u]
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] [name_f]Willow[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_u]Adair[/name_u]
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_f]Wren[/name_f]
[name_f]Delphine[/name_f] [name_f]Oriel[/name_f]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_u]Artemis[/name_u]
[name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] [name_f]Persephone[/name_f]
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_u]Sage[/name_u]

My favorites out of those:
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] [name_u]Ember[/name_u]
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_f]Wren[/name_f] (I love this one!)

I love the name [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] but I don’t care for any of the middle names you’ve it with. Other middles for [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] that you might like are:
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_u]Aspen[/name_u]/[name_u]Aspyn[/name_u]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Laurel[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Acacia[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Olive[/name_f]

[name_f]Lovely[/name_f]! I really like these top 4
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Laurel[/name_f]
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_u]Sage[/name_u]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_u]Artemis[/name_u]
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] [name_u]Ember[/name_u]

[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_u]Adair[/name_u]
[name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] [name_f]Persephone[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_f]Maple[/name_f]/[name_f]Wren[/name_f] - I like both about equally
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] [name_f]Willow[/name_f]
[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_u]Rowan[/name_u]
[name_f]Delphine[/name_f] [name_f]Oriana[/name_f] - I’m not so wild about this one. What about [name_f]Delphine[/name_f] [name_u]Adair[/name_u]?

Thanks for the comments so far, still having a hard time figuring out which ones to let go.

I think we are getting rid of [name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] and [name_f]Delphine[/name_f], they just don’t feel right for us.

Any other comments?

The names are your list are so nice!

The ones that remind me most of fall are [name_u]Rowan[/name_u], [name_f]Hazel[/name_f], [name_u]Ember[/name_u], [name_f]Willow[/name_f], [name_m]Birch[/name_m], [name_u]Oak[/name_u], [name_f]Maple[/name_f], [name_f]Wren[/name_f], [name_f]Saffron[/name_f], and [name_u]Sage[/name_u].

My favorite combos (regardless of fall imagery) are:
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Laurel[/name_f]
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_f]Wren[/name_f]
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_u]Sage[/name_u]

Some other combo ideas:
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Maple[/name_f]
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f]
[name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] [name_m]Birch[/name_m]
[name_f]Laurel[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] [name_u]Juniper[/name_u]

I hope that helps!

These are the most autumnal sounding to me:

[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_u]Rowan[/name_u] - [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] would me way too much.
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] [name_u]Artemis[/name_u] - Although I think [name_f]Gwenyth[/name_f] is prettier, [name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] is a little much for me. [name_f]Love[/name_f] [name_u]Artemis[/name_u] though.
[name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] [name_f]Saffron[/name_f]
[name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f]
I like some of your other name choices but not so much together the way you had them.

I would Mix & Match a little more.
[name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] would be lovely for example.
