Middle name for Alice?

My husband and I are expecting our first in [name]April[/name]. We don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl yet, but we’ve been throwing around some name ideas. So far the only girl name that we both like is [name]Alice[/name].

I like the name, but I’m coming up a little short in the middle name department.

Our last name starts with D and is two syllables.

I would love to hear your ideas!

[name]Alice[/name] is such a beautiful classic a great choice. I like [name]Alice[/name] [name]Ruth[/name].

or

[name]Alice[/name] [name]Helen[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Lindsey[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Clementine[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Willow[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Raine[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Jemima[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Brittany[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]May[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Violet[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Georgia[/name]

Boys

[name]Charles[/name] ([name]Charlie[/name]) [name]Winter[/name]
[name]James[/name] [name]Rupert[/name]
[name]Elliot[/name] [name]William[/name]
[name]David[/name] [name]Everett[/name]
[name]Gavin[/name] [name]Curtis[/name]
[name]Miles[/name] [name]Alexander[/name]
[name]Rhys[/name] [name]Tierney[/name]

[name]Alice[/name] is one of my favorites!

Since both [name]Alice[/name] and your last name have two syllables, having either one or three syllables in the middle name will probably flow the best. I think three sounds the most melodic…

[name]Alice[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Joy[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Philippa[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Theresa[/name]

[name]Alice[/name] is great.

[name]Alice[/name] [name]Victoria[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Olivia[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Helena[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Emelia[/name]

[name]Alice[/name] is so beautiful!

[name]Alice[/name] [name]Cordelia[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Juliet[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Mariana[/name]

[name]Alice[/name] [name]Liliana[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Tabitha[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Elodie[/name]

I really love [name]Alice[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]! :slight_smile:

Good luck! :slight_smile:

Thank you for all of the wonderful suggestions! I really love [name]Alice[/name] [name]Josephine[/name], but I like [name]Josephine[/name] so much as a stand alone name that I’m a little hesitant to use it as a middle name in case we have another girl. Although, I’m not sure I could talk my husband into it as a first name, so maybe I’ll see what he thinks of it as a middle.

Some other favorites I’ve gotten from your ideas are:

[name]Alice[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] (too common maybe?)

I really like [name]Ruth[/name] and [name]Kate[/name], but I’m a little nervous about pairing two shorter names.

Speaking of shorter names, what do you think of [name]Alice[/name] [name]Rae[/name]?

I think that [name]Rae[/name] is too modern for the classic [name]Alice[/name], however [name]Alice[/name] [name]Ruth[/name] works because it has the right vibes, classic, vintage, feminine, fresh etc. Also [name]Alice[/name] [name]Caroline[/name].

bb girl #2 [name]Kate[/name] [name]Josephine[/name], [name]Catriona[/name] [name]Josephine[/name].

[name]Alice[/name] [name]Matilda[/name] has always been my favourite [name]Alice[/name] combo :slight_smile:

[name]Alice[/name] [name]Annabel[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Ceridwen[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Eliza[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Emily[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Eveline[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Felicity[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Georgiana[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Henrietta[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Harriet[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Imogen[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Isabel[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Jessamine[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Katherine[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Louisa[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Margaux[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Mary[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Miriam[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Penelope[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Primrose[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Rosemary[/name]

Yes, [name]Alice[/name] [name]Matilda[/name] is gorgeous.

I just adore [name]Alice[/name]! Possibly because [name]Alice[/name] in Wonderland was my favorite book as a child:)

[name]Alice[/name] [name]Anastasia[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Avalon[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name]/[name]Beatrix[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Briony[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Corrine[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Elaine[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Eloise[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Fiona[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Isabelle[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Isolde[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Joanne[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Julianna[/name]

[name]Alice[/name] [name]Marcella[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Naomi[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Ruby[/name]

I also love th suggestions of [name]Alice[/name] [name]Matilda[/name], [name]Alice[/name] [name]Ruth[/name], Alive [name]Evelyn[/name], [name]Alice[/name] [name]Felicity[/name], and [name]Alice[/name] [name]Annabel[/name].

[name]Alice[/name] is a great name. I think with [name]Alice[/name], though, you could use something a little daring in the middle. [name]Tina[/name] [name]Fey[/name]'s daughter is [name]Alice[/name] [name]Zenobia[/name]. I love it! Are you interested in suggestions for something a little more daring?

I agree that [name]Rae[/name] has a different feel than [name]Alice[/name]. It’s the middle name of a favorite aunt which makes it more appealing to me, however my husband doesn’t like it, so it probably won’t end up making the cut anyway.

Of the new names listed, I really like:

[name]Alice[/name] [name]Felicity[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Georgiana[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Elaine[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name]

deirdre - I agree that the name [name]Alice[/name] leaves an opening for a more unique middle name. I’m very open to your ideas!

[name]Alice[/name] [name]Verity[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Bernadette[/name]
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Harriet[/name] (I think I would have to spell it this way, but the combo may be a little TOO old lady, even for me :slight_smile: )
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Liberty[/name] (Our last name ends in a Y, does this still work?)
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Ophelia[/name]

Wow - I’m gathering quite the list of options!

Thank you for all of your help!

alice kind of feels like it is a middle name to me…
but if you’re going to use it as a first name, i like [name]Nicole[/name] as a middle::
[name]Alice[/name] [name]Nicole[/name]… it’s just beautiful, don’t you think?
