Middle name for Brynli

I need help picking a good middle name for our newborn miracle, Brynli [name]Tandy[/name]. Thanks!
What do you think of [name]Reese[/name]?

I like [name]Reese[/name] as a middle name but in your case I’d go with something without the prominent “ee” sound. There are already lots of “ee’s” (i and y).

I know you’re not asking, but maybe you’re still open to opinions on the first. With your surname I’d definitely go for a first that doesn’t end in y or ee or i. Brynli [name]Tandy[/name] just doesn’t sound good. Also I think the spelling of Brynli (I’d go for Brynley) looks kind of… sorry, it just looks a little trashy to me. Especially in the combination with the similar ending surname…yeah, I’d avoid that.

[name]Reese[/name] [name]Tandy[/name] would be really nice!

“I” never makes the long “e” sound. Please follow the rules of phonetics when naming your child.

Brynli [name]Reese[/name] is kind of heavy on the long e sound, but other than that it sounds find. Around here on nameberry, people are pretty much against different spellings as I’m sure you can tell. :slight_smile: I do think adding an e to the end of Brynli would look more finished. But of course you are free to spell the name as you wish. Here are some other middle name suggestions that I think sound good with Brynli.

Brynli [name]Claire[/name]
Brynli [name]Joy[/name]
Brynli [name]Rose[/name]
Brynli [name]Elisabeth[/name]
Brynli [name]Jane[/name]
Brynli [name]Sophia[/name]
Brynli [name]Kathryn[/name]

Brynli is really tryndee and kree8tyv…di you already name the baby? Maybe spelling it a different way would help…but [name]Reese[/name] is a nice name

That’s not true, for starters Broccoli, confetti, chili, Tahiti, Wasabi and naming wise Teri and Lexi which I would say are acceptable even if one doesn’t like them, all have long “e” sounds.

I can’t say I’m a fan of that spelling. I prefer the original version of [name]Brinley[/name]. It’s not my style regardless but it fits current trends.

Anyway, Brynli [name]Reese[/name] is okay, but I think a more feminine name may balance out the first name better. [name]How[/name] about Brynli [name]Victoria[/name]?

[name]Just[/name] to try to clear things up… She did say her “newborn” miracle - so I’m assuming the baby is already here. In which case, I’m going to congratulate and say that Brynli [name]Reese[/name] [name]Tandy[/name] sounds very nice. Not all will agree with that, but I’m a fan of alliterated sounds.

Other great ideas that others have posted:
Brynli [name]Joy[/name]
Brynli [name]Jane[/name]

I have to agree with the general consensus and say that the current spelling does look a little trashy to me, as well as a bit too ‘trynndi’ for my taste. I think [name]Brinley[/name] is a good option, and if you really want that y in there, you could go with Brynley. Either way, I also think that the ee sound at the end of both names is a bit off to me. [name]How[/name] about [name]Brinley[/name] as a middle name? [name]Hope[/name] this helps :slight_smile:

I agree, the baby is already here so congrats and think [name]Joy[/name] or [name]Reese[/name] [name]Joy[/name] is a great mn since she’s a miracle.

Thanks you for all of the feedback. I appreciate all comments --that’s exactly why I asked, so keep them coming.
Our baby is almost 24 hours old and we are still working on her name-- both first and middle names are undecided. What about the spelling, [name]Brynlee[/name]? Our last name is actually spelled, Tande so we are thinking it looks better spelled [name]Brynlee[/name] Tande. Is the name [name]Brinley[/name] trendy or just the spelling I was using?
we are also considering,
[name]Terrin[/name] Tande
[name]Reese[/name] Tande
I liked the middle name suggestions, [name]Claire[/name], [name]Victoria[/name], elizabeth and katherine. We need help with middle names for terrin or reese too.
Thanks again for the help!

I think people were saying that both the name, and the spelling of Brynli were trendy. If you are still not settled, and considering a different first name, I think that [name]Reese[/name] is a really great name, that will work well on a baby girl, and work well on a grown woman. For example, I can more easily picture meeting a lawyer named [name]Reese[/name] vs meeting a lawyer named Brynli. Get what I mean?

I love [name]Reese[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] Tande and [name]Reese[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] Tande.

Congrats on your new baby girl. I hope you can find a name that you love!

Of your choices, I much prefer [name]Reese[/name]. I like [name]Reese[/name] [name]Victoria[/name]!

I think [name]Brynlee[/name] [name]Reese[/name] is beautiful! Congratulations!

To start, I don’t dislike [name]Brinley[/name]. I do think that [name]Brinley[/name] falls in with 1. the recent trend of surnames on girls, 2. the huge popularity of girls names ending in -ley ([name]Kylie[/name], [name]Kayley[/name], [name]Marley[/name], [name]Hadley[/name], [name]Paisley[/name], [name]Hayley[/name], [name]Bailey[/name]…). Brynli might be a more unusual way of spelling it, but I think (as will most Berries…) that the unique spelling doesn’t make the name as unique as it does difficult for others to spell. But I don’t think that having a trendy name is necessarily a bad thing, so if you are feeling settled on [name]Brinley[/name], I would suggest going with [name]Brinley[/name]. (The double “e” ending stands out to me funny…). I would pick with [name]Brinley[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] or [name]Brinley[/name] [name]Claire[/name]–while all your options are classics, I think these are streamlined and graceful.

I would, however (if you are still undecided), pick one of your other options over [name]Brinley[/name] because I think that having two two-syllable names ending in the same sound feels a little…awkward or clunky. [name]Reese[/name] Tande is amazing. AMAZING. It’s clean and timeless and strong. I can’t get over how fabulous it is. I love [name]Reese[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] and [name]Reese[/name] [name]Katherine[/name]! I also think [name]Reese[/name] [name]Brinley[/name] Tande is pretty. [name]Terrin[/name] Tande’s alliteration definitely stands out to me, but I don’t think that it’s too distracting. I am partial to [name]Terrin[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] and [name]Terrin[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] - both incorporate some of [name]Terrin[/name]'s sounds and flow well.

As another idea, have you considered just [name]Brynn[/name]? [name]Brynn[/name] Tande escapes the clunkiness of the double -ee endings and shares some of [name]Reese[/name]'s crisp, short sound. So if you’re in love with Brynli/[name]Brinley[/name] but want a cleaner alternative, [name]Brynn[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] or [name]Brynn[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] might work great!

Congratulations to you and your family!!

Why not just [name]Brynn[/name]? Or [name]Brenna[/name]? Brynli/[name]Brynlee[/name] is cutesy and trendy
[name]Love[/name] the alliteration of [name]Terrin[/name] Tande. I prefer [name]Taryn[/name] or [name]Taran[/name], the E in [name]Terrin[/name] makes it look masculine [name]IMO[/name].

I would agree with the above poster. Not only is [name]Reese[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] gorgeous, [name]Brynn[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] or [name]Brynn[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] would be a very nice option as well. Congrats on your new little girl!

I’m not a big fan of Brynnlee either. It’s very trendy. [name]Just[/name] [name]Brynn[/name] sounds MUCH better, [name]IMO[/name]. If you stick with Brynnlee, [name]Reese[/name] is nice in the middle. [name]Reese[/name] [name]Clara[/name] also sounds nice, following your suggestions.

The name [name]Brinley[/name] is trendy as names with “ley” at the end are very popular. In my opinion, it looks much better spelled the original way. Uneek spellings just cause a child to continuously spell out his or her name.

[name]Brinley[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] Tande looks fine.

I love [name]Reese[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] even more. :] It’s fabulous!

Well…if you are still deciding…
If I met a [name]Reese[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] Tande, I would be so jealous of her name! [name]Love[/name] it.
If you like [name]Brinley[/name], this spelling looks the best to the eye I think. But [name]Brynn[/name] Tande flows better and could carry into adulthood a little better. However, sometimes you have to go with your gut. You will get a lot of suggestions on here, but they will be no good if it doesn’t feel right.
