Middle name for Mabel

First bub is due in [name_f]April[/name_f] and we have decided on first name [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] for a girl. My husband has more or less left middle name choice up to me and while I like a few names, I can’t settle on one.

So far this is my short list:

[name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f]
[name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Zinnia[/name_f]
[name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Sylvia[/name_f]
[name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Celia[/name_f]

Surname ends in ‘n’ and so I am avoiding names that end in ‘n’ as I don’t think it flows well. I like names that are feminine and familiar but not too common/popular, and looking for something that goes with the vintage vibe of [name_f]Mabel[/name_f].

Any thoughts on my list or suggestions would be most welcome!

I love [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Celia[/name_f]

I really like [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] and [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] from your list. I’ve always liked the sound of [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] and [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] too.

I’d suggest [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] as an alt to [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f]. I like that option with [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] best, but the “d” on the end strikes me as a little harsh. But its still a good pick!

I think all the names on your shortlist sound nice. My favourite is [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] as it sounds feminine but also very mature. [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] is also a great choice which sounds a bit more playful.
