Blythe

Hello, all! I’ve recently rekindled a flame with an old love — Blythe. I think it’s very sweet and give me Blanche sort of vibes, perfectly vintage and classy. It fits right in with my favorite girl names (Lucy, Hazel, Stella, Bea, Winnie, Kit, Grace, Mae, Etta, and Ada, to be precise). However, is it a little hard to pronounce? Is it usable?

I’m also having a bit of trouble with middle names. I’ve tested out some old reliables: Blythe Frances, Blythe Josephine, Blythe Paisley, Blythe Avery, and Blythe Cornelia, but none seem quite right. What middle name would you pair with Blythe. I tend to like vintage, Biblical/Christian, nature, and unisex names for middles.

While I prefer Blythe as a middle name, I think it would make a lovely, unexpected first name. Its definitely usable imo, though when I first saw it, I didnt know how to pronounce it (please keep in mind that English isnt my first language)

I would pair Blythe with a more fun middle name.

Blythe Juniper
Blythe Harper
Blythe Rowan
Blythe Ocean

Blythe Clementine and Blythe Pollyanna are PERFECT. I love Clementine dearly, but I think I’m enjoying Blythe Pollyanna just a little bit more.

Lucy, Hazel, Stella, and Blythe Pollyanna. I rather like that.
