Difficult Surname - Help


I’ve always loved the idea of giving my children two middle names - it’s something fairly common in the place I live and I think is really lovely. However, my SO’s surname isn’t the easiest to work with - it’s three syllables long with the same vowel repeated and ending in the same vowel sound (let’s say it’s Bereket, for hypothetical combinations).

Most of the names I really really love are 3/4 syllables so I’m struggling to come up with ideas and even though we aren’t pregnant or planning to be any time soon, I’d really like to put some together that work. I’ll list my favourite names below but there’s a link to my blog with full name lists in the signature below so please check that out.

Any help would be hugely appreciated x

P.S. I’m going to post this thread in the boys’ forum as well to work on boy names so if you have any ideas please head over there as well

Isalie (is-ah-lee)
Leolin (lay-oh-lin)
[name_f]Olwyn[/name_f] (ol-win)

[name_u]Sloane[/name_u] [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] [name_f]Olwyn[/name_f]
[name_f]Lyra[/name_f] [name_f]Verity[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f]
[name_f]Petra[/name_f] [name_f]Irene[/name_f] [name_u]Amory[/name_u] (I do feel that these all blend together but I still like the sound of it)
[name_f]Victoire[/name_f] [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] [name_u]Sloane[/name_u]

These aren’t really my style of names (apart from [name_u]Sloane[/name_u] and [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] which I love) but I gave it a go. I do prefer your boys names.

I love [name_f]Annika[/name_f], [name_f]Felicity[/name_f], [name_f]Juliet[/name_f], [name_f]Arabella[/name_f], [name_f]Lyra[/name_f], [name_f]Iris[/name_f], [name_f]Petra[/name_f], [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Victoire[/name_f] from your list. Isalie is interesting, what about [name_f]Isaline[/name_f]? :slight_smile:

@aleerakate thank you for your feedback - yeah, my names aren’t everyone’s cup of tea aha but thank you for helping anyway <3 I love Cordelia and Olwyn together though I’d be more inclined to put it as Cordelia Olwyn ____ because I like longer names for firsts :slight_smile:

@luneth thank you :slight_smile: I really like Cordelia Isalie Olwyn and Arabella Juliet Sloane

@jariel oh I adore Iris Ophelia and Lyra Felicity Maeve - thank you
