Is Anneliese Melissa too much?

We love [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] if baby is a girl and using [name_f]Melissa[/name_f] ([name_f]MIL[/name_f]'s first name) would be really meaningful to us. However, I’m not so much a fan of the repeated consonant sounds ([name_f]AnneLIESe[/name_f], [name_f]MeLISSa[/name_f]). I also don’t know how I feel about two 3-syllable names, since she will have a double middle like her brothers and I worry that might be too long.

[name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] [name_f]Melissa[/name_f] _______

As long as we’re at it, any ideas for the second middle? [name_f]TIA[/name_f]!

What about a variation or snippet of [name_f]Melissa[/name_f]? [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] [name_f]Mia[/name_f] [name_f]Autumn[/name_f](or whatever third name goes there), [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] Miel (means honey in [name_f]France[/name_f] and [name_f]Melissa[/name_f] means honey bee!), [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f]. Or you could use a second name you like : [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] [name_f]Thea[/name_f] [name_f]Melisande[/name_f], and then use a more elaborate variation of melissa. [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] is kind of sweet as is [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] [name_f]Mia[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f]. Good luck!

It is a lot but we seldom use our middle names so it would be fine. Choosing an honour name that is meaningful to you trumps flow [name_f]IMO[/name_f]. I would suggest putting a one syllable middle name between [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] and [name_f]Melissa[/name_f], e.g. [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u] [name_f]Melissa[/name_f].

If you are set on [name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] for a fn, I would use something else other than [name_f]Melissa[/name_f] as a mn. I like the idea of [name_f]Mia[/name_f] or [name_f]Melisande[/name_f] above. Some other possibilities: [name_f]Meli[/name_f], [name_f]Melia[/name_f], [name_u]Mel[/name_u], [name_f]Pamela[/name_f], [name_f]Melina[/name_f], [name_f]Honey[/name_f], Beckette (means beehive), or [name_f]Deborah[/name_f] (means bee). Using just the [name_u]MEL[/name_u] part, you could do [name_f]Amelia[/name_f], [name_f]Camelia[/name_f], [name_f]Carmella[/name_f], [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f], [name_f]Melanie[/name_f], or [name_f]Melody[/name_f].

[name_f]Anneliese[/name_f] [name_f]Pamela[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f]
