Girl middle name help

So my husband and I have pretty much decided on [name]Gideon[/name], [name]Henry[/name] or [name]Harrison[/name] for a boy, but we are having a lot more trouble narrowing down our list of girls names. I think starting to think about middle names will help.

Girls names on our list for first names right now:

Any of those names are also in contention for middle names, along with (family names):

I feel like we’ve said these names so many times that we think every combination sounds great! Haha. I know you all will be able to come up with some really wonderful combos that will make certain names stand out for us. And we’re not opposed to double middle names.


These are the combos I like best:

[name]Camilla[/name] [name]Rae[/name]
[name]Celia[/name] [name]Jeanine[/name]
[name]Celia[/name] [name]Rae[/name]
[name]Francesca[/name] [name]Madeleine[/name]
[name]Francesca[/name] [name]Maria[/name]
[name]Francesca[/name] [name]Rae[/name]
[name]Ivy[/name] [name]Adelle[/name]
[name]Ivy[/name] [name]Madeleine[/name]
[name]Louisa[/name] [name]Madeleine[/name]
[name]Margaret[/name] [name]Adelle[/name]

Oh my gosh, I [name]LOVE[/name] the names on your lists! Wow! [name]Henry[/name] is one of my all-time favorites, and I love [name]Gideon[/name] and [name]Harrison[/name], too. :slight_smile:

[name]Camilla[/name]: I think it’s really pretty and a fresh spin on [name]Camille[/name]. (I’m personally trying to work on associating the name with [name]Camilla[/name] [name]Belle[/name] as opposed to [name]Camilla[/name] [name]Parker[/name] Bowles.) :slight_smile:

[name]Camilla[/name] [name]Jane[/name] is my favorite combo from you list of names.

[name]Celia[/name]: I [name]LOVE[/name] this name!

[name]Celia[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Celia[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Celia[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]

[name]Celia[/name] [name]Magdalene[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Celia[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

[name]Eleanor[/name]: I love [name]Eleanor[/name], too, but because I hear it more often than [name]Celia[/name] and [name]Camilla[/name], I guess it doesn’t feel as fresh to me. (I love [name]Eleanora[/name], too!)

[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

[name]Eloise[/name]: This name is quickly approaching the top of my list! It feels both spunky and elegant at the same time, so I really love it!
I also love [name]Eloisa[/name].

[name]Eloise[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Eloise[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

[name]Eloise[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

(It’s not on here, but I just love [name]Eloise[/name] [name]Violet[/name].) :slight_smile:

[name]Francesca[/name]: I love this, too!

[name]Francesca[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

[name]Francesca[/name] [name]Magdalene[/name] [name]Mae[/name]

[name]Ivy[/name]: Like [name]Eloise[/name], it feels spunky and elegant to me. I love it!

[name]Ivy[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]
[name]Ivy[/name] [name]Louisa[/name]
[name]Ivy[/name] [name]Ramona[/name] (two spunky names in one)
[name]Ivy[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]

[name]Ivy[/name] [name]Ramona[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Ivy[/name] [name]Ramona[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

[name]Jane[/name]: I love the name [name]Jane[/name], and think it would be so refreshing to see it up front!

[name]Jane[/name] [name]Louisa[/name] (this is actually my all-time favorite [name]Jane[/name] combo)
[name]Jane[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]

[name]Josephine[/name]: I love this, too!

[name]Josephine[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Josephine[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]

[name]Josephine[/name] [name]Willa[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Louisa[/name]: One of my favorite names. :slight_smile:

[name]Louisa[/name] [name]Jane[/name] (my all-time favorite [name]Louisa[/name] combo…)
[name]Louisa[/name] [name]Mae[/name] (which may be too [name]Alcott[/name] for you)
[name]Louisa[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]
[name]Louisa[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]

[name]Louisa[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

[name]Mae[/name]: I think that [name]Mae[/name] is really sweet, and love it as a nickname for [name]Margaret[/name] and [name]Mabel[/name], as well as on its own.

[name]Mae[/name] [name]Louisa[/name]
[name]Mae[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]

[name]Magdalena[/name]: I prefer the other names on your list, but I do think that [name]Magdalena[/name] is very pretty.

[name]Magdalena[/name] [name]Mae[/name]

[name]Margaret[/name]: Oh! I didn’t realize that [name]Margaret[/name] was on your list! I love this name, and love the nicknames [name]Mae[/name], [name]Maisie[/name], and [name]Daisy[/name]. :slight_smile:

[name]Margaret[/name] [name]Jane[/name] is my favorite!

[name]Ramona[/name]: This name has really been growing on me, and I love it even more now that someone suggested that “[name]Romy[/name]” could be a nickname. (I can’t remember who suggested it, so if you’re reading this, I loved your idea!) To me, [name]Ramona[/name] is both spunky and elegant, like [name]Eloise[/name], [name]Ivy[/name], and [name]Beatrix[/name] (not on your list, but it reminds me of the others).

[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Rae[/name] (I actually think that [name]Rae[/name] could be a nickname for [name]Ramona[/name])
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Jean[/name] (For [name]Jeanine[/name]…I love the quirkiness of this one!)

From your family names, I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Willa[/name]! :slight_smile:

Okay. I love too many of your names to choose just one, so if I were you, I know I’d have to gather my favorites and wait to see which one best fits the baby after she’s born. I just can’t pick!

Some of my favorites:

[name]Celia[/name], [name]Eloise[/name], [name]Ivy[/name], [name]Jane[/name], [name]Louisa[/name], [name]Ramona[/name], and [name]Margaret[/name] ([name]Mae[/name]).

From these, I’ll lump [name]Eloise[/name], [name]Ivy[/name], and [name]Ramona[/name] together in the “spunky-yet-elegant” group, and I’ll put [name]Celia[/name], [name]Jane[/name], [name]Louisa[/name], and [name]Margaret[/name]/[name]Mae[/name] in the classic group.

When I look at it this way, I think I’m drawn toward your spunky-yet-elegant group at the moment with [name]Eloise[/name] [name]Mae[/name]/[name]Jane[/name], [name]Ivy[/name] [name]Ramona[/name]/[name]Ivy[/name] [name]Josephine[/name], and [name]Ramona[/name] [name]Mae[/name]/[name]Jean[/name] in the lead.

From the classics, I’m loving [name]Celia[/name] [name]Jane[/name], [name]Jane[/name] [name]Louisa[/name], [name]Louisa[/name] [name]Jane[/name], and [name]Margaret[/name] [name]Jane[/name].

What a great list you have! :slight_smile:

Good luck! :slight_smile:
