Help with middle names

We have chosen several family names for our children, and all three of them so far at least have a family name in the middle. We have a boy name for #4 that uses two family names ([name]Theodore[/name] [name]James[/name]), but we are really struggling with our girl options. We have big families with lots of kids, and many of the family names have already been used. Our top girl first name choices are


Middle name options from our family tree are below. Please suggest name combos! Thanks so much!

[name]Lou[/name] ([name]MIL[/name]'s middle name – we are considering [name]Louise[/name] or [name]Louisa[/name] to honor her – her middle came from her grandmother, [name]Louisa[/name])
[name]Nellie[/name] (my great-grandmother – [name]Helena[/name] would have the nickname [name]Nellie[/name] or [name]Nell[/name] if we choose it as a first name)
[name]Connie[/name] (no, not [name]Constance[/name], just [name]Connie[/name])

I like [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Leona[/name]
[name]Juliet[/name] [name]Leona[/name]
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Leona[/name]
[name]Felicity[/name] [name]Leona[/name]
[name]Helena[/name] [name]Bridget[/name]
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Kelly[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Juliet[/name] [name]Kelly[/name]
[name]Kelly[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Felicity[/name] [name]Jane[/name]

[name]Love[/name] [name]Leona[/name].

[name]Felicity[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Rae[/name]
[name]Juliet[/name] [name]Leona[/name]
[name]Juliet[/name] [name]Louisa[/name] (to honor [name]MIL[/name]'s middle name)

Also love [name]Helena[/name], it’s very pretty!

[name]Jane[/name] does seem to be the one that fits best with many of our names. [name]Jane[/name] is my mom’s middle name and we already used her first name ([name]Susan[/name]) as a middle for our [name]Genevieve[/name]. I’m trying to fall in love with [name]Louise[/name]/a or [name]Leona[/name] in the middle, but so many of our first names have L’s in them already that it feels like too many L’s. But actually, the more I say some of your suggested combos out loud, the more I like them. [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Louise[/name] is lovely, and I also like [name]Violet[/name] [name]Leona[/name], [name]Felicity[/name] [name]Jane[/name], and [name]Helena[/name] [name]Bridget[/name]. Of course, [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Jane[/name] is classic, but I also feel like [name]Elizabeth[/name] needs something more daring in the middle. I’ll have to think on [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Leona[/name]. :slight_smile: Thanks!

[name]Love[/name] your choices. Here are my ideas:

[name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Louisa[/name]
[name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Connie[/name]

[name]Juliet[/name] [name]Louisa[/name] [name]Connie[/name]
[name]Juliet[/name] [name]Helena[/name] [name]Louise[/name]
[name]Juliet[/name] [name]Leona[/name] [name]Rae[/name]

[name]Helena[/name] [name]Louise[/name]
[name]Helena[/name] [name]Lou[/name]
[name]Helena[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Louisa[/name]
[name]Helena[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Louise[/name]

[name]Violet[/name] [name]Helena[/name] [name]Lou[/name]
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Rae[/name]
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Leona[/name] [name]Connie[/name]

[name]Felicity[/name] [name]Helena[/name] [name]Lou[/name]
[name]Felicity[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Felicity[/name] [name]Leona[/name]

My favorite is [name]Violet[/name] [name]Helena[/name] [name]Lou[/name]!

I hadn’t really considered two middles, but that does help increase the options! Thanks for the suggestions! We did use two middles for our 3rd child, but only because I used my maiden name as the second middle. :slight_smile: So two middles for the 4th baby would fit just fine.
