I need a great first name for the middle name Janice

We are TTC # 3 and if it is a girl we would love to honor my dh grandmother [name]Janice[/name].
whom we affectionately call “Granny Janny”
What are some spunky/fun/girly names that would sound great if [name]Janice[/name] was in the middle slot? Since [name]Janice[/name] is so dated I need something to balance it out or an updated version of the name [name]Janice[/name]. Any ideas?

Other children are [name]Rylee[/name] and [name]Beckett[/name].


I can’t think of any first name suggestions necessarily, though I think most names that don’t end in -ice would work well, but I also think that [name]Janine[/name] sounds fresher than [name]Janice[/name], so you might consider that for a middle name if you happen to love one that would otherwise not work.

[name]Reece[/name] [name]Janice[/name] = not so good
[name]Reece[/name] [name]Janine[/name] = OK

Note that I’m not endorsing [name]Reece[/name], just trying [name]Janice[/name]/[name]Janine[/name] in the middle.
What a nice puzzle to work out, hurray for Granny Janny!

[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Janice[/name] was the first name to pop into my head! A lovely, yet unexpected, combination. You could also go with [name]Jane[/name] as the mn, instead of [name]Janice[/name].

What about a three-syllable name like …

[name]India[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Clarissa[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Catherine[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Lydia[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Josephine[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Janice[/name]

I think a modern sounding three-syllable name would go nicely with [name]Janice[/name] as the middle. With [name]Rylee[/name] and [name]Beckett[/name] I like more unisex sounding girls names, but some girly names would fit as well:

[name]Emerson[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Sheridan[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Cassidy[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Ellery[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Kerrigan[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Bethany[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Lilia[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Natalie[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Adeline[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Meredith[/name] [name]Janice[/name]
[name]Naomi[/name] [name]Janice[/name]

[name]Hope[/name] that helps!

Freckles, You are right to point out the modern naming style. i overlooked the other kids’ names.
