[name]Do[/name] any of these stand out as wonderful winners to you? [name]Grace[/name], [name]Katherine[/name] and [name]Quinn[/name] are all family names, which we love… but aren’t 100% sold on. [name]Quinn[/name] is hard to find a middle name for, but we like its strength. Thanks in advance for any input!

[name]Grace[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] - [name]Grace[/name] is so pretty that I would hate to see it as [name]Gracie[/name]
[name]Katherine[/name] [name]Grace[/name] -[name]Kate[/name] This is the perfect classical name
[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] - It works here and one would assume that [name]Quinn[/name] was a family surname
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] - It works
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - Same comment as [name]Katherine[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Adrienne[/name] [name]Grace[/name] Doesn’t ring any bells for me
[name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] - Okay nn of [name]Delia[/name]
[name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - Pretty
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - [name]Cara[/name], a really beautiful nn, also other nn’s are [name]Cas[/name], [name]Carrie[/name], [name]Calla[/name]
[name]Julia[/name] [name]Marie[/name] Pretty but not outstanding
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] Dislike

My favorites -

[name]Katherine[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - [name]Kat[/name], [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] - [name]Mia[/name]

[name]Love[/name] the name [name]Quinn[/name]. We missed our opportunity to use but now have a nephew with this name. We were leaning towards using is a girls first or middle name.
I’m drawing a blank on the name combo’s we liked with [name]Quinn[/name].

I love [name]Grace[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] - [name]Gracie[/name] and [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - beautiful classy names.
And as for [name]Quinn[/name] combos, how about
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Ava[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Sophie[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Marie[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Noreen[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Honora[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Olivia[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Phoebe[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Eliza[/name]

[name]Grace[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] - [name]Gracie[/name]: Prefer [name]Katherine[/name] [name]Grace[/name]. I agree that [name]Grace[/name] is too beautiful to be morphed into [name]Gracie[/name].
[name]Katherine[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - [name]Kat[/name], [name]Kate[/name]: Pretty, but both names are quite popular. She will be one of many Katherines (and [name]Katherine[/name] variations) in her school/class.
[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] - [name]Mia[/name]: I like this.
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] - [name]Rory[/name], [name]Ellie[/name], [name]Ella[/name], [name]Nora[/name]: [name]Eleanor[/name] and [name]Quinn[/name] are a major style clash to me, but I think all four nicknames are good style matches for [name]Quinn[/name].
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - [name]Rory[/name], [name]Ellie[/name], [name]Ella[/name], [name]Nora[/name]: Classic, but not dated. Good choices.
[name]Adrienne[/name] [name]Grace[/name]: Doesn’t flow as well as some of your other combos.
[name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] - [name]Lia[/name]: [name]Cordelia[/name] nn [name]Lia[/name] is gorgeous, but the fact that both names start with a hard “c” sound makes the flowing [name]Cordelia[/name] seem harsh.
[name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - [name]Lia[/name]: My favorite of your combos!
[name]Allison[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] - [name]Allie[/name]: I dislike the fact that both names end in “n”. Doesn’t flow too well.
[name]Allison[/name] [name]Marie[/name] - [name]Allie[/name]: Cute, but both very popular. [name]Marie[/name] seems to me to be the [name]Ann[/name], [name]Lynn[/name], etc of the new millennium when it comes to middle names.
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - [name]Cara[/name]: Pretty.
[name]Julia[/name] [name]Marie[/name]: Very popular, and again with [name]Marie[/name].
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]: Seems harsh to me. Perhaps try some of the other [name]Quinn[/name] combos suggested?

[name]Grace[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] - [name]Gracie[/name] - [name]Love[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] [name]Grace[/name] more.
[name]Katherine[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - [name]Kat[/name], [name]Kate[/name] - love
[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] - [name]Mia[/name] - love
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] - [name]Rory[/name], [name]Ellie[/name], [name]Ella[/name], [name]Nora[/name] - need to think about it, later - I like it, but I really love [name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Grace[/name]!
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - [name]Rory[/name], [name]Ellie[/name], [name]Ella[/name], [name]Nora[/name] - totally love
[name]Adrienne[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - love both names, but I don’t know how much I like them together.
[name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] - [name]Lia[/name] - love, but I read theater’s comment, and I think I agree.
[name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - [name]Lia[/name] - love! elegant but has a bit of comfyness to it.
[name]Allison[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] - [name]Allie[/name] - don’t like as much as some of your other choices.
[name]Allison[/name] [name]Marie[/name] - [name]Allie[/name] - ditto. I am kind of tired of [name]Marie[/name] as a middle name.
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - [name]Cara[/name] - beautiful, regal.
[name]Julia[/name] [name]Marie[/name] - seems kind of tame
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] - sounds like [name]Queen[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]

[name]Grace[/name] [name]Katherine[/name]: I really love [name]Grace[/name] despite its popularity…
[name]Katherine[/name] [name]Grace[/name]: Pretty…
[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Quinn[/name]: I love [name]Amelia[/name], too, and do like it with the unexpected [name]Quinn[/name] in the middle.
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Quinn[/name]: With [name]Quinn[/name], I prefer your [name]Amelia[/name] combo, although I do love [name]Eleanor[/name].
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Grace[/name]: Despite [name]Grace[/name]'s popularity as a middle name, I think it works well with [name]Eleanor[/name].
[name]Adrienne[/name] [name]Grace[/name]: I prefer some of your other names/combos…
[name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Quinn[/name]: I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Cordelia[/name]/[name]Cora[/name], and think the unexpected [name]Quinn[/name] works here…
[name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Grace[/name]: Pretty…
[name]Allison[/name] [name]Quinn[/name]: [name]Allison[/name] is dated and to me…
[name]Allison[/name] [name]Marie[/name]: Ditto…

Have you thought about [name]Alice[/name] or [name]Allegra[/name] as sources of [name]Allie[/name]?

[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Grace[/name]: I really love this combo’s elegance and simplicity…

[name]Julia[/name] [name]Marie[/name]: I love [name]Julia[/name], but not with [name]Marie[/name] in the middle…

[name]Julia[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]
[name]Julia[/name] [name]Katherine[/name]
[name]Julia[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]

[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]: Like [name]Susan[/name] said, I think of [name]Queen[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]. (For this reason, I’d also avoid [name]Elizabeth[/name] and [name]Victoria[/name] in the middle…)

[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Amelia[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Cordelia[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Katherine[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Louisa[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Miranda[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name]

From your list, I’m voting for [name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Grace[/name], with [name]Caroline[/name] [name]Grace[/name] and [name]Amelia[/name] [name]Grace[/name] close behind. :slight_smile: Not only do I love [name]Cordelia[/name], but I think a more unusual name like this perfectly balances out the popular [name]Grace[/name].

Some more with [name]Grace[/name], just for fun:

[name]Celia[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Dahlia[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Helena[/name] [name]Grace[/name]

[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Grace[/name] (nn [name]Poppy[/name] or [name]Nell[/name])
[name]Susannah[/name] [name]Grace[/name]

Good luck! :slight_smile:

my picks, in order:

[name]Allison[/name] [name]Marie[/name] - [name]Allie[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - [name]Cara[/name]
[name]Julia[/name] [name]Marie[/name]
[name]Grace[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] - [name]Gracie[/name]

Have you thought about [name]Quincy[/name] nn [name]Quinn[/name]? I think [name]Quincy[/name] [name]Grace[/name] sounds beautiful.

[name]Grace[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] - [name]Gracie[/name]: I agree with the rest [name]Grace[/name] is too lovely for [name]Gracie[/name]
[name]Katherine[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - [name]Kat[/name], [name]Kate[/name]: [name]Love[/name] it, but have you thought about how [name]Kate[/name] [name]Grace[/name] is going to sound?
[name]Amelia[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] - [name]Mia[/name]: Also love
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] - [name]Rory[/name], [name]Ellie[/name], [name]Ella[/name], [name]Nora[/name]: All the nicknames go, but the best I think is [name]Nora[/name]
[name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - [name]Rory[/name], [name]Ellie[/name], [name]Ella[/name], [name]Nora[/name]: [name]Eleanor[/name] I think goes better with [name]Quinn[/name]
[name]Adrienne[/name] [name]Grace[/name]: Nice, but I sort of hear this as the male [name]Adrian[/name], and what would the nickname be? [name]Addie[/name] goes very well with [name]Grace[/name]…
[name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] - [name]Lia[/name]: [name]Cordelia[/name] doesn’t sound great great with [name]Quinn[/name], have you thought of [name]Lia[/name] or [name]Leah[/name] on its own?
[name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - [name]Lia[/name]: Great!
[name]Allison[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] - [name]Allie[/name]: doesn’t work well with [name]Quinn[/name]
[name]Allison[/name] [name]Marie[/name] - [name]Allie[/name]: nice
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - [name]Cara[/name]: also nice
[name]Julia[/name] [name]Marie[/name]: good choice
[name]Quinn[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]: I like the balance.

I think my favorites are [name]Katherine[/name] ([name]Kat[/name] or [name]Katie[/name], not [name]Kate[/name]) [name]Grace[/name], [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] ([name]Nora[/name]), and [name]Amelia[/name] ([name]Mia[/name]) [name]Quinn[/name]. I definitely vote for [name]Quinn[/name] as a middle name. Good luck!

[name]Quinn[/name] makes a perfect one syllable middle name.
I like the classic [name]Katherine[/name] although I prefer the [name]Katharine[/name] spelling(like Hepburn)

Out of your list I like [name]Katharine[/name] [name]Quinn[/name].
