Help with middle name

You’ve help us decide on the name [name]Rowan[/name] for our little girl. Last name is [name]McCabe[/name]. I need help again. [name]Long[/name] ago I thought we could incorporate our mothers middle names in our baby’s middle name. [name]Marie[/name] and [name]May[/name]. Altogether it sounds like a mouth full of marbles: [name]Rowan[/name] [name]Marie[/name] [name]May[/name] [name]McCabe[/name]. Their first names [name]Sylvia[/name] & [name]Viola[/name]…not my taste. So we’re open to all suggestions. What works with [name]Rowan[/name] _ [name]McCabe[/name]??

[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Marie[/name] [name]May[/name] [name]McCabe[/name] is a bit of a mouth full. [name]May[/name] can be/is a pet form of [name]Mary[/name].

I’m going to just write the names out, not assuming this is how they go:
[name]Sylvia[/name] [name]Marie[/name] and [name]Viola[/name] [name]May[/name](these are both beautiful, btw)
[woods;forest][star of the sea] [purple][fifth month]
[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Maeve[/name] ([name]May[/name] + both V’s and it’s Irish but a bit rhyme-y with your surname)
[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Via[/name] [name]May[/name]
[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Livia[/name] [name]May[/name]
[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Lydia[/name] (takes letters from [name]Sylvia[/name] and ‘seller of purple’ from the Bible)
[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Violet[/name] [name]Molly[/name]

[name]How[/name] do you feel about [name]Sophia[/name] and [name]Violet[/name] instead of [name]Sylvia[/name] and [name]Viola[/name]

[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] [name]Violet[/name] [name]McCabe[/name]

What about just using letters from the grandmothers names? You could do [name]Maeve[/name] although that doesn’t have the best flow with your last name. [name]Rowan[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] sounds nice.

You could honor the names [name]Sylvia[/name] and [name]Viola[/name] by using one S name and one V name for the middles:

[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Violet[/name] [name]Sloane[/name] [name]McCabe[/name]
[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] [name]Sage[/name] McCage
[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Vivian[/name] [name]Sage[/name] [name]McCabe[/name]
[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Sidony[/name] [name]Vera[/name] [name]McCabe[/name]
[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Verity[/name] [name]Scarlet[/name] [name]McCabe[/name]
[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Verity[/name] [name]Sloane[/name] [name]McCabe[/name]
[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Valerie[/name] [name]Sky[/name] [name]McCabe[/name]
[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Scarlet[/name] [name]Vida[/name] [name]McCabe[/name]
[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] [name]Shea[/name] [name]McCabe[/name]
[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Violet[/name] [name]Sylvie[/name] [name]McCabe[/name]

[name]Hope[/name] that helps!

I love love love love the name [name]Rowan[/name] [name]McCabe[/name]! its gorgeous! for a middle name I would use [name]Sylvie[/name], which I also adore and think is a great update to [name]Sylvia[/name], while still definitley honoring [name]Sylvia[/name].

[name]Rowan[/name] [name]Sylvie[/name] [name]McCabe[/name].

maybe with your next child you could honor the other mother? Or use [name]Violet[/name]? [name]Rowan[/name] [name]Sylvie[/name] [name]Violet[/name] [name]McCabe[/name]? I actually really love that!

Thank you all, you’ve given us a lot of great suggestions to play with

[name]How[/name] about combining [name]Marie[/name] and [name]May[/name] into [name]Mary[/name]? [name]Rowan[/name] [name]Mary[/name] would be very pretty. :slight_smile:
