Middle names - again

[name]Just[/name] typing while I chomp down on a dark Lindt bunny - hope everyone’s having a fab [name]Easter[/name]!

I’m pretty sure I’ve decided on [name]Violet[/name] for a little girl. I’m just debating middle names.

My daughter’s middle name is my mums name, and I feel it’s only fair that the next baby gets an equally meaningful name. So that leaves me with…

[name]Ann[/name] - [name]MIL[/name]'s middle name (because I don’t like her first name)


[name]Claire[/name] - my middle name.

Opinions? Which works better, or which would you pick? [name]Violet[/name] [name]Ann[/name] or [name]Violet[/name] [name]Claire[/name]?

I like [name]Violet[/name] [name]Ann[/name] and [name]Violet[/name] [name]Claire[/name] equally, but I prefer [name]Claire[/name] much more.
Why not [name]Violet[/name] [name]Anna[/name]-[name]Claire[/name]?
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Annika[/name]? You get the [name]Ann[/name]- and the Kah- sound from [name]Claire[/name].

[name]Violet[/name] [name]Claire[/name].

I absolutely love [name]Violet[/name] [name]Ann[/name] together. It just seems so perfect, and if I wasn’t put off by the Affleck connection, I would probably use [name]Violet[/name] [name]Anne[/name] myself. :slight_smile: Still, I don’t think that should hold you back–[name]Violet[/name] [name]Ann[/name] is so pretty and works so well with [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Heather[/name]! [name]Violet[/name] [name]Claire[/name] is very pretty, though!

Good luck!

Another vote for [name]Violet[/name] [name]Ann[/name]

I think [name]Violet[/name] [name]Ann[/name] flows much better, but I think as pp suggested [name]Violet[/name] [name]Ann[/name]-[name]Clair[/name] is pretty too.

[name]Violet[/name] [name]Claire[/name]. [name]Ann[/name] is so boring in the middle name spot.

I’d like [name]Violet[/name] [name]Ann[/name] better if it weren’t for the Affleck connection, so I choose [name]Violet[/name] [name]Claire[/name]. [name]Both[/name] are beautiful though.
