Mary Combo Scramble!

Hey Berries!

I’m trying to come up with some more [name_f]Mary[/name_f] or similar combinations with two middle names. Ideally with a variation of [name_f]Laura[/name_f] in it (in honour of my aunt and grandmother.) I do like [name_f]Laura[/name_f], [name_f]Laurina[/name_f], [name_f]Lauretta[/name_f], [name_f]Laurelle[/name_f], Laurielle and [name_f]Liora[/name_f], but can’t get behind [name_f]Laurel[/name_f] for some reason or [name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] (I do love [name_m]Gilmore[/name_m] Girls, but it feels too tied to it!)

I’m trying to go towards [name_m]German[/name_m], Italian or Irish (our background) middle names to compliment [name_f]Mary[/name_f] or something that has a southern feel. I love [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f], but it feels [name_m]Ott[/name_m] with [name_f]Mary[/name_f], I also love wintery names [name_f]Noelle[/name_f], [name_f]Snow[/name_f] etc.

So far I have:

[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] [name_u]Gale[/name_u] - [name_u]Gale[/name_u] is my maiden name.
[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Liora[/name_f] [name_f]Snow[/name_f]
[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Liana[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f]

Thoughts and ideas please? :slight_smile:

[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_u]Gale[/name_u] [name_f]Lorraine[/name_f] would be lovely

[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Saoirse[/name_f] [name_f]Lauren[/name_f]
[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Elora[/name_f]
[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Lauretta[/name_f] [name_f]Ailish[/name_f]/[name_f]Ailis[/name_f]

[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Liora[/name_f] [name_u]Gale[/name_u]!

I like [name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Liora[/name_f] [name_u]Gale[/name_u]. [name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] sounds too religious to me. But I know some people like that in a name so if you like that [name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] [name_u]Gale[/name_u] is my favorite of your options.

[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Elsa[/name_f] [name_f]Noelle[/name_f] is my favourite out of your suggestions!

Thanks for the suggestion, [name_f]Lorraine[/name_f] is my nan’s and aunt’s middle name, I find it too old and fusty unfortunately.

[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Ginevra[/name_f] [name_f]Laurelle[/name_f] is so so stunning! Thank you.

I didn’t think of that, thanks!

The tricky thing is, I really want a name that encapsulates so many different things in one:

  • I want it to honour my grandma and aunt.
  • I want it to have some Irish, Italian and [name_m]German[/name_m] thrown in for good measure.
  • I really want to use some form of [name_f]Mary[/name_f], as it was my great grandmother’s middle name.
  • I love the idea of some winter connotation middle names.
  • I also want it to somehow harp back to the south, particularly [name_m]New[/name_m] Orleans, as it’s one of our favourite places in the world, hence [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f].

That being said, I can see how it may appear overly religious and our future child will attend a catholic school, so I do want to be mindful of that. Thanks for your feedback!

[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Lauretta[/name_f] [name_f]Noelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] [name_f]Alice[/name_f]
[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Laurina[/name_f]
[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Christina[/name_f] [name_f]Snow[/name_f]

A few things:

  1. Absolutely keep [name_u]Gale[/name_u]. Using maiden names as firsts/middles isn’t unique to the US south, but it’s a top naming tradition here for sure.

  2. [name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] [name_u]Gale[/name_u] is truly stunning. I also like the suggestion of [name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Liora[/name_f] [name_u]Gale[/name_u].
