Middle name for Theo (girl) HELP

Hello all! I am absolutely in love with the name [name_u]Theo[/name_u] (yes, theO) for my baby girl. But i am having a very hard time coming up with a middle name. I am wanting something very feminine for a middle name as her first name is quite masculine. I would love to incorporate a family name but am open to all options! Last name rhythms with [name_f]Rose[/name_f]!
Family names Id consider or variations:
[name_f]May[/name_f]
[name_f]Ann[/name_f]
[name_u]Lynn[/name_u]
[name_f]Bren[/name_f]
[name_f]Marie[/name_f]

I think that variants might be the way to go! The names I suggest might not be from the exact same origins, but they share sounds with the family names. First idea: [name_f]Annemarie[/name_f]! It can honor both [name_f]Ann[/name_f] and [name_f]Marie[/name_f].

[name_f]May[/name_f]: [name_f]Mabel[/name_f], [name_f]Maelys[/name_f]
[name_f]Ann[/name_f]: [name_f]Annabel[/name_f], [name_f]Anais[/name_f], [name_f]Leanne[/name_f] (could also honor [name_u]Lynn[/name_u]), [name_f]Brianne[/name_f] (could also honor [name_f]Bren[/name_f])
[name_f]Bren[/name_f]: [name_f]Bronwen[/name_f], [name_f]Brenna[/name_f]
[name_u]Lynn[/name_u]: [name_f]Marilyn[/name_f], [name_f]Linnea[/name_f]
[name_f]Marie[/name_f]: [name_f]Maribel[/name_f]/[name_f]Maribelle[/name_f], [name_u]Marian[/name_u], [name_f]Marine[/name_f]/[name_f]Marina[/name_f], [name_f]Maren[/name_f]/[name_f]Marin[/name_f], [name_f]Rosemarie[/name_f]

Annabel
Maya
Maria
Marietta
Brienne
Lynette

Personally, I think Annabel or Marietta (or just Theo Marie) or something similar, would work best. I assume you probably don’t like Dorothea or Theodora? I do think Dorothea/Theodora May “Theo” would be sweet.

[name_u]Theo[/name_u] [name_f]Marie[/name_f] would be my pick!
The M and “eee” ending is soft and feminine

[name_u]Theo[/name_u] [name_u]Penny[/name_u]
[name_u]Theo[/name_u] [name_f]Lila[/name_f]
[name_u]Theo[/name_u] [name_f]Claire[/name_f]
[name_u]Theo[/name_u] [name_f]Sera[/name_f]
[name_u]Theo[/name_u] [name_f]Julia[/name_f]

@cdhawker @BrittneyMR i wish I would’ve seen this thread before we had our baby! Her name is [name_u]Theo[/name_u] [name_f]Mavis[/name_f] :slight_smile: It’s funny how much people comment that it would be more normal if it was just the nickname etc lol.

We love it as a first name and I’m so happy to see others!

That’s so nice, congratulations! Yes, the struggle started from the hospital with the midwife ‘informing’ me that [name_u]Theo[/name_u] is a boy’s name. :roll_eyes: I think this will become more and more popular for girls, just like all of the other traditionally masculine names. I just wish my [name_u]Theo[/name_u] would grow some hair so it’s more obvious she’s a girl :joy::joy:

Something very feminine and traditional may help balance it out. But [name_u]Theo[/name_u] is adorable. [name_u]Will[/name_u] it he short for [name_f]Theodora[/name_f]?
