Middle name for Tess

I need help with a middle name for [name]Tess[/name] (prefer simply [name]Tess[/name], not [name]Tessa[/name]). My DD is [name]Kate[/name] [name]Eliza[/name]. I like [name]Tess[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name], but fear [name]Elizabeth[/name] is too close to [name]Eliza[/name] and it seems like a cop out. I also like [name]Tess[/name] [name]Adeline[/name] or [name]Tess[/name] [name]Adalie[/name]. Would love some additional ideas … thanks!

[name]Tess[/name] [name]Adaline[/name] is pretty. The only suggestion I have is [name]Tess[/name] [name]Isabella[/name]. I know [name]Isabella[/name] is popular, but I think you can get away with it because its a mn. Good luck!

I love [name]Tess[/name] [name]Adaline[/name]!
I also like [name]Tess[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name], [name]Tess[/name] [name]Amelia[/name], and [name]Tess[/name] [name]Annabel[/name]

Thank you for the suggestions so far! My name is [name]Emma[/name] [name]Kate[/name] and I gave my DD my middle name. She is [name]Kate[/name] [name]Eliza[/name]. I love the idea of [name]Tess[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name] because both of my girls would share part of my name.

Keep 'em coming!

That is really cool! I love [name]Tess[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name] even more now!

[name]Eliza[/name] and [name]Elizabeth[/name] is a no go, even as middle names. I’m not a big fan of nicknames as first name, but [name]Tess[/name] and [name]Kate[/name] are a good match. I like both [name]Tess[/name] [name]Adeline[/name] and [name]Tess[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name]. Others:

[name]Tess[/name] [name]Adelaide[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Francesca[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Imogen[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Delilah[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Elodie[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Flora[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]India[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Clementine[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Violet[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]

to me, [name]Tess[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name] screams out to be the true winner
love that both girls would have part of your name :slight_smile:

[name]Tess[/name] and [name]Kate[/name] go beautifully together! I’m a bit biased tho since my girls are [name]Tess[/name] and [name]Kaia[/name] (which is also a diminutive of [name]Katherine[/name]…I’m [name]Karen[/name] and my sisters name is [name]Katie[/name] :slight_smile:

So glad you’re choosing [name]Tess[/name] over [name]Tessa[/name], as [name]Tessa[/name] seems preferred to most.
[name]Tessa[/name] seems very princessy to me whereas [name]Tess[/name] is straight forward. So glad we didn’t go with [name]Tessa[/name] because my dd is no where near the princessy image. If someone calls her [name]Tessa[/name] she corrects them, I’m not [name]Tessa[/name], I’m [name]Tess[/name]! Haha and [name]Tess[/name] does fit her perfectly!!
