Middle name for Wren

My husband and I are currently expecting our third child, a girl. We’ve both recently fallen in love with the name [name]Wren[/name], but we’re having trouble coming up with a middle name. Our two older children, four-year-old [name]Ada[/name] [name]Helena[/name] and two-year-old [name]Henry[/name] [name]Killian[/name], have middle names that are not overly popular, which we’d like to replicate.

The problem arises from the fact that [name]Wren[/name] is a one-syllable name. Our last name is two-syllables and we can’t decide how many syllables to use to make the name flow well. [name]Even[/name] when we try different length names, nothing really seems to sound nice. Here’s a pretty short list of [name]Wren[/name] paired with names we like:

[name]Wren[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name]
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Evangelina[/name]
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Amelia[/name]
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Lilac[/name]
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]

[name]Do[/name] any of these seems to flow well at all? If not, any suggestions of names that would sound nice paired with [name]Wren[/name] would be greatly appreciated!

[name]Wren[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] is beatiful… or [name]Wren[/name] [name]Celia[/name], [name]Wren[/name] Abernathy, [name]Wren[/name] [name]Hadley[/name]…

good luck!

another vote for wren sophia! though quite popular- it is super cute and flows well with wren. i also like simone (“the listener”) as a middle for wren or vivian.

[name]Wren[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name]: I think it’s pretty and flows well, but it’s pretty n heavy.

[name]Wren[/name] [name]Evangelina[/name]: I think this is pretty, too, and it sounds less n heavy to my ear.

[name]Wren[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]: This one feels flat to me…

[name]Wren[/name] [name]Amelia[/name]: I really like this combo…

[name]Wren[/name] [name]Lilac[/name]: I think you need a longer middle name with your last name (at least three syllables)…

[name]Wren[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]: [name]Sophia[/name] is very popular, but I think this is really, really pretty.

I like either [name]Wren[/name] [name]Amelia[/name] or [name]Wren[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]. :slight_smile:

[name]Wren[/name] [name]Juliana[/name]
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Louisa[/name]
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Marielle[/name]
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Rosalie[/name] (but only if you like alliteration…)
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] (popular, though…but pretty)
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Winifred[/name] (a bit of a potential tongue twister, though)

Good luck! :slight_smile:

What about [name]Wren[/name] [name]Scarlett[/name]?

[name]Wren[/name] [name]Penelope[/name]?

I do find [name]Wren[/name] doesn’t quite match [name]Ada[/name] & [name]Henry[/name].

I think these are nice:

[name]Wren[/name] [name]Lucia[/name]
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Olivia[/name]
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Abigail[/name]
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Wren[/name] [name]Christine[/name]

When you have a last name with 2 syllables, the 3-1-2 or 1-3-2 guideline is a good rule of thumb for a nice flow. I noticed you picked a lot of 3 syllable options - so your instincts are taking you there already :slight_smile:

Since “[name]Wren[/name]” is more unusual, I think it’s fine to have a slightly more popular middle name. It creates a nice balance. Also, since “[name]Wren[/name]” is short, sweet, snappy, and pert — I think a more softly feminine middle works very well.

All of which is to say: “[name]Wren[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]” is lovely!

I like [name]Sophia[/name], but why don’t you try the less common “f” spelling; [name]Wren[/name] [name]Sofia[/name]. If you still want something less common, try a variation of [name]Sophia[/name]. [name]Wren[/name] [name]Seraphina[/name] is beautiful.

I think [name]Wren[/name] is a great name - and I like it with your other names! I really like [name]Wren[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name] or [name]Wren[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name]. I think that the short first names need the longer middle names. Good luck, and I say go for it!

[name]Wren[/name] [name]Marigold[/name]

[name]How[/name] funny, I liked this name when I was younger and though I made it up. :slight_smile: It is really cute! I always thought I would do

[name]Wren[/name] [name]Margaret[/name]

But if you want something less popular, you could do

[name]Wren[/name] [name]Marguerite[/name]

I also really like [name]Wren[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name]. Good luck!

[name]Wren[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] doesnt flow well for me…
