Help me with a middle name! Totally open to suggestions

Ok, Berries! You gave me your opinions on the name [name_u]Marian[/name_u], which I have now decided to go with. Thanks for your feedback, btw. Now I need a middle name! I like [name_u]Marian[/name_u] [name_f]Annelise[/name_f] but that might be too wordy with the ‘an’ sounds. I want something feminine, but not super girly. Any suggestions?

Marian [name_f]Elspeth[/name_f]
[name_u]Marian[/name_u] [name_f]Lucille[/name_f]
[name_u]Marian[/name_u] [name_f]Winifred[/name_f]
[name_u]Marian[/name_u] [name_f]Constance[/name_f]
[name_u]Marian[/name_u] [name_f]Delphine[/name_f]
[name_u]Marian[/name_u] [name_f]Violet[/name_f]
[name_u]Marian[/name_u] [name_f]Calliope[/name_f]
[name_u]Marian[/name_u] [name_f]Harriet[/name_f]
[name_u]Marian[/name_u] [name_f]Victoria[/name_f]
[name_u]Marian[/name_u] [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f]
[name_u]Marian[/name_u] [name_f]Fleur[/name_f]
[name_u]Marian[/name_u] [name_f]Jane[/name_f]

Not helpful with options but I agree that [name_u]Marian[/name_u] [name_f]Annalise[/name_f] is too ‘an’ sounding as they come straight after one another. [name_f]Annalise[/name_f] [name_u]Marian[/name_u] would work better. Apparently [name_u]Marian[/name_u] means [name_f]Rose[/name_f] [name_f]Petal[/name_f] in Latin so maybe [name_u]Marian[/name_u] [name_f]Rose[/name_f]?
