Wonder if I could have your thoughts?
I’m expecting a baby girl and plan to name her [name]Anna[/name]. I’m having a lot of trouble coming up with the perfect middle name to complement it - somehing I love as much as [name]Anna[/name].
I’d really love something either biblical/Hebrew or classic/traditional - maybe English on origin. I wonder if anything springs to mind to complement [name]Anna[/name]?
Names I have considered are:
[name]Carmel[/name] - However my son’s middle name is [name]Caleb[/name] and the fact that this sounds a little similar is not sitting right with me.
[name]Carmen[/name] - ditto
[name]Audrey[/name] - I love the claasic style of this name but am very aware that it doesn’t flow with [name]Anna[/name] - I’d like to avoid another A.
[name]Ruth[/name] - I like it but just don’t love it enough.
[name]Frances[/name] - but this is the name of a close relative that I don’t particularly want to honor. I think I like the feel of this one best, but am not prepared to use it - something that has a similar vibe would be great.
[name]Charlotte[/name] - same issues as [name]Carmel[/name]/[name]Carmen[/name].
[name]Kate[/name] - sounds too similar to [name]Caleb[/name] for my liking!
So - can you help me please?! I need something classic, simple and elegant, or preferably, biblical. I guess I’m also saying, for the purposes of rhythm, nothing ending in ‘a’ or starting with a vowel. I’ll know the right one when I see it!
Thanks so much! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts.
