Middle for Maren and Thoughts

[name_f]My[/name_f] husband and I are thinking we want to use the name [name_f]Maren[/name_f] if our baby is a girl. Our typical style is much more classic (our other top girl choices are [name_f]Margaret[/name_f], [name_f]Grace[/name_f], and Emma) so we’re a little hesitant, but we keep coming back to it because we love the soft but non frilly sound. What do you guys think of the name in general, and which of our middle options is your favorite?

[name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]
[name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_u]Hollis[/name_u]
[name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Iris[/name_f]
[name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]
[name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Sophia[/name_f]

I appreciate any thoughts you have! Thanks!

I think it’s a lovely name! I especially love [name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] and [name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] from your list.

[name_f]Maren[/name_f] is lovely - it gives me chic, intellectual vibes and I also love its soft/non-frilly sound. [name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] and [name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] are my favorites. [name_u]Hollis[/name_u] would be a great brother or sister name for [name_f]Maren[/name_f]!

[name_f]Maren[/name_f] is a gorgeous name! I particularly love [name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] as a combination, and if you feel that [name_f]Maren[/name_f] is slightly outside your comfort zone I think paring it with the supremely familiar [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] would be a good idea.

[name_f]Maren[/name_f] is on our shortlist and I love [name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]! [name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] is also lovely and satisfied that classic nod you love.

I love the name [name_u]Hollis[/name_u] and think [name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_u]Hollis[/name_u] is a great combo, however, I agree with @cactusgram that [name_u]Hollis[/name_u] would make a stunning sibling to [name_f]Maren[/name_f]!

[name_f]Maren[/name_f] is my favourite on your list - lovely! [name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] or perhaps [name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f]?

[name_f]Maren[/name_f] is absolutely gorgeous- warm, rugged yet gentle and all round lovely

[name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] feels balanced and pretty, [name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Sophia[/name_f] is bright and sweer, and [name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] has elegance

Thank you guys for all of your insights! I think it’s a great idea to save [name_u]Hollis[/name_u] for a future sibling. And since no one mentioned [name_f]Iris[/name_f], maybe I’ll cross that one off my list and narrow my options to [name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f], [name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f], and [name_f]Maren[/name_f] [name_f]Sophia[/name_f] :slight_smile:
