My husband and I just found out that our first baby, due in [name_f]October[/name_f], is a girl! We are ecstatic. We have had our girl name locked for over a year, but need suggestions for a middle name.
The first name is [name_f]Carina[/name_f], middle name ideas we’ve kicked around so far include [name_f]Mae[/name_f] or [name_f]Maeve[/name_f], but husband isn’t sold on either. Our last name has three syllables, so I think the middle should be 1 syllable, or possibly 2 as long as it doesn’t end in an “a” sound, or start with a vowel. Husband dismissed “[name_f]Rose[/name_f]” because it’s his grandmother’s name and she is not someone he wants to honor.
He has [name_m]German[/name_m] and English roots, and I have Scandinavian and Jewish Eastern European heritage. [name_f]Carina[/name_f] is a name in both Germany and [name_u]Sweden[/name_u] so it works. I’m hoping that no one thinks it’s too close to the virus but seriously, this has been our number one name for well over a year now, and we don’t have any others we like.
Thanks in advance! I’m brand new to nameberry so I hope I’ve followed all the rules. I wasn’t sure what tags to put.
