Middle name for Mara

I need a middle name for baby [name]Mara[/name]. I’m looking for something that flows well (last name sounds a lot like [name]Ford[/name]), and I would love it if the middle name had a positive meaning.


I love [name]Mara[/name]! I only have a few suggestions, but I love them both:

[name]Mara[/name] [name]Felicity[/name] (“happy”)
[name]Mara[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] (“bright, shining one”)

Those are lovely! Thank you!

[name]Mara[/name] is a nice name. :slight_smile: I like [name]Mara[/name] [name]Jade[/name] but then there is a [name]Star[/name] Wars character with that name.

Other middle names I like:
[name]Mara[/name] [name]Eliana[/name]
[name]Mara[/name] [name]Callista[/name]
[name]Mara[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Mara[/name] [name]Bridget[/name]
[name]Mara[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name]

[name]How[/name] about these? Meanings in parentheses.

[name]Mara[/name] [name]Katharine[/name] (pure)
[name]Mara[/name] [name]Violet[/name]
[name]Mara[/name] [name]Penelope[/name] (weaver, good association with [name]Odysseus[/name]'s wife)
[name]Mara[/name] [name]Cecelia[/name] (blind, not such a great meaning)
[name]Mara[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name] (bearer of good news)
[name]Mara[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] (victory)

I love [name]Mara[/name] and its on my own list. I’m not sure of your style, so with apologies, this are really my style, ones I’ve considered with it:

[name]Mara[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name] - [name]Beatrix[/name] meaning ‘blessed.’ [name]Beatrice[/name] has the same meaning and a softer feel.
[name]Mara[/name] [name]Laetitia[/name] - Meaning ‘happiness.’
[name]Mara[/name] [name]Blythe[/name] - ‘happiness’
[name]Mara[/name] [name]Kezia[/name] - ‘cinnamon’ which I like as contrast to the ‘bitter’ meaning of [name]Mara[/name], giving it a warm-and-spicy baked cookie feel to me.
[name]Mara[/name] [name]Dulcie[/name] - ‘sweet’

I love [name]Mara[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name]! and plenty of other great suggestions. Thank you all!
