Middle name help! Maren ?

We are tentatively favoring [name]Maren[/name] as a first, but are stuck on a middle. I was considering [name]Jane[/name] (my mother’s middle) but my BF doesn’t like that it sounds like “[name]Mary[/name] [name]Jane[/name]”. I really also liked that it gave her the ability to use MJ as a nickname if she wanted.

Thoughts? Recommendations? I prefer uncommon but on the classic (v “unique”) side of the fence. I’d also like to end up with an initial combo that she can use as a nickname but that’s a bonus not a requirement. The last name will begin with an L.


I love the name [name]Maren[/name]. Its currently at the top of my list. If you are wanting initials that can be a nn, what about M.E., like [name]Emmy[/name]?
Some suggestions:
[name]Maren[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Maren[/name] [name]Elinor[/name]
[name]Maren[/name] [name]Eloise[/name]
[name]Maren[/name] [name]Everly[/name]
[name]Maren[/name] [name]Eve[/name]
[name]Maren[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name]
[name]Maren[/name] [name]Elodie[/name]
[name]Maren[/name] [name]Elise[/name]

:slight_smile: [name]Elizabeth[/name] is my BF’s recommendation! I like that it’s classic and has a lot of it’s own nickname potential, but I just don’t “love” it. I do like [name]Everly[/name] and I have [name]Elinor[/name] on my middle name list, I might have to bring that back up for discussion. Thanks!

Also, FYI I get a ton of compliments on her name and everyone seems to love it. Good luck!
