Middle Name Inspiration Ideas for LO2

Hi again,

I’m looking for some middle name ideas for LO2. I’m looking for male and female ideas but not unisex.

For a bit of history my first LO has a name which is considered an “Irish grandparent name” and it’s a honour name. Popularity is one of the last criterion for (me) selecting a good name :sunglasses:

Here’s the contenders for LO2:

Órla —— getting a lot of love on my previous post
[name_f]Sinéad[/name_f]
Áine
[name_f]Sorcha[/name_f]

Diarmaid
Daithí
[name_u]Darragh[/name_u]
[name_m]Mícheál[/name_m]

**LO1 has a classic MN with a lot of positive history. Think on the lines of historically classic. It hasn’t gone out of style (yet).

LO2 needs something classic, evergreen, even botanical or a positive historical/literary reference (we are avid readers) or mid century (yep a grandparent name). **

Dislike Americanised and occupation names. Immensely dislike “en” names ([name_u]Hayden[/name_u]/Brayden/Cayden/Jayden etc).
I feel like Victorian names are kind of done at the moment.

I’m hoping that there’s a poster (or more of you) who have similar tastes to me!

TIA! :grinning:

So many lovely names on your list! I especially love Órla and Áine for a girl and Daithí for a boy.
