middle name ideas for claire

I have always loved the name claire, but planned to use it as a middle name for a future [name]Lydia[/name] or [name]Annabel[/name]. I had never really considered using it as a first name until my husband suggested it recently. The only middle name I can think of that sounds “right” is [name]Elizabeth[/name], which is perfectly beautiful, but Id rather use something a little less … expected (does that make sense?) Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Oh I really like [name]Claire[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name]! Thanks!

We must have very similar taste! I especially love [name]Claire[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] and [name]Claire[/name] [name]Adelaide[/name]…so pretty!

Thank you! And yes, we have a 3-syllable last name which is impossible to spell so we’d like to keep it simple on the front end! :slight_smile: [name]Love[/name] the suggestion of [name]Claire[/name] [name]Helena[/name]/[name]Elaina[/name]/[name]Alaina[/name].

[name]Claire[/name] [name]Magnolia[/name] is SO adorable and [name]Claire[/name] [name]Lisette[/name] is tres francais, and will be going on the “short list”. Thanks! :slight_smile:

[name_f]Claire[/name_f] [name_f]Angeline[/name_f] (means bright, illustrious angel)
[name_f]Claire[/name_f] [name_f]Madeline[/name_f]
[name_f]Claire[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f]
[name_f]Claire[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]
[name_f]Claire[/name_f] [name_f]Isabelle[/name_f]

My favourite of the suggestions is [name_f]Claire[/name_f] [name_f]Lisette[/name_f]. Certainly an unexpected combo. Colourful, stylish, with depth.

One last Idea not quite as surprising but it is my best friends name and she is a fire cracker who well if I were able to have enough kids to name a child for all my best friends her name would be at the top of the list.
[name_f]Claire[/name_f] [name_u]Lindsey[/name_u]

I like the suggestions of
[name_f]Claire[/name_f] [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] (or [name_f]Claire[/name_f] [name_f]Elinor[/name_f])
