Middle Name for Mara

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] Berries!

[name_f]My[/name_f] partner & I are expecting our second daughter in [name_u]June[/name_u]. Since we stumbled on the name [name_f]Mara[/name_f] (MAH-RA) we were both drawn to it & feel it is the perfect fit for our little girl however we are struggling on a middle name that works well due to her double barrel last name ‘McK******-W*******’ (6 syllables). This is my partners surname & he isn’t open to shortening it being that it’s his family name and the surname of our first daughter [name_u]Kora[/name_u].

We have found that short, preferably 1 syllable middles work the best. Our favourites in order are:

  • [name_f]Mara[/name_f] [name_u]Jade[/name_u] (family middle name but hesitant due to the [name_f]Star[/name_f] Wars connection, even though my partner loves series lol)

  • [name_f]Mara[/name_f] [name_u]Blaire[/name_u] (feels a bit choppy)

  • [name_f]Mara[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] (reminds me of [name_u]Marie[/name_u] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] the woman’s magazine)

  • [name_f]Mara[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] (dedicated to my sisters name Annise)

Would love to hear which from above are your favourites & all your other suggestions!

Thanks <3

I like [name_f]Mara[/name_f] [name_u]Jade[/name_u], great character no longer canon so I think entirely usable .

I think [name_f]Mara[/name_f] [name_f]Nisa[/name_f] or [name_f]Mara[/name_f] [name_f]Sienna[/name_f] (weirdlly [name_f]Annise[/name_f] rearranged here) could work as honor names for your sister.

[name_f]Mara[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] and [name_f]Mara[/name_f] [name_u]Jade[/name_u] are sweet!!
