I need a middle name!

Hello Nameberries,

We need a middle name for baby [name_f]Florence[/name_f] (our first)! I like [name_f]Odessa[/name_f]. But I am am not 100%. What do you think about the combo “[name_f]Florence[/name_f] [name_f]Odessa[/name_f]”? [name_f]Do[/name_f] you have any other suggestions that will be lovely with [name_f]Florence[/name_f]?

Oh, I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] [name_f]Florence[/name_f] [name_f]Odessa[/name_f]!! It’s beautiful, both in sound and in how it’s written. [name_u]Love[/name_u], love, love.
Also thought of: [name_f]Florence[/name_f] [name_f]Ottilie[/name_f], which isn’t all that dissimilar.

Thanks for all your help.
So, based on that one members feedback that both [name_f]Florence[/name_f] and [name_f]Odessa[/name_f] are place names, would you stick with it or find another combination?

I really like the phonetics of [name_f]Florence[/name_f] (final s, consonant) with the long O sound at the beginning of the Middle name (in [name_f]Odessa[/name_f], [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], [name_f]Oprah[/name_f]).

[name_f]Florence[/name_f] O…

[name_f]Odessa[/name_f]?
[name_f]Odilia[/name_f]?
[name_f]Ophelia[/name_f]?

Which is best?
