Middle names for Annelise / Anneliese

[name]Hi[/name] everyone -

I am due with my first child at the beginning of the year! We opted to leave the gender a surprise and are trying to finalize our top choices for a boy and a girl. One of our top three girls names is [name]Annelise[/name] but I’m having a hard time coming up with a middle name. It can’t be [name]Claire[/name] because my best friend’s daughter is named [name]Clare[/name] [name]Elise[/name]. I love [name]Annelise[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] but it’s a mouthful, and I have a three syllable last name. Would love a one or two syllable MN. Any suggestions?

Our other top two names are [name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Jane[/name] and [name]Lydia[/name] [name]Catherine[/name], just to give you a taste of our style so far.


[name]Annelise[/name]/[name]Anneliese[/name] is so sweet! [name]Annelise[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] seems like it might be faintly redundant since I think [name]Annelise[/name] is a smoosh (a historical one, but still one) of [name]Anne[/name] and [name]Elise[/name], which is (I think) derived from [name]Elizabeth[/name]. If that’s wrong, oh well, since you’re saying it’s too long anyway.

I know friends of friends who used this name and used [name]Adele[/name] for the mn, I thought that was lovely!

[name]Annelise[/name] [name]Belle[/name]
[name]Annelise[/name] [name]Beth[/name]
[name]Annelise[/name] [name]Camille[/name]
[name]Annelise[/name] [name]Corinne[/name]
[name]Annelise[/name] [name]Helen/name
[name]Annelise[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Annelise[/name] [name]Lily[/name]
[name]Annelise[/name] [name]Mara[/name]
[name]Annelise[/name] [name]Noelle[/name]

All best!

[name]Anneliese[/name] is very sweet! It’s on my own short list–I love it. My combo is [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Sophie[/name] [name]Kate[/name] (big fan of two MNs), but I think [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Sophie[/name] or [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Kate[/name] is perfect, too. I’ve been considering [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Daphne[/name] lately, too.

What about:

[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Winter[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Zoe[/name]
[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Wren[/name]

Good luck!

Wow lots of great suggestions here! I have a three syllable french last name, so I would love the FN or MF to be French. DH loves the name [name]Colette[/name] - maybe [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Colette[/name] isn’t too bad? We have a lot of [name]Marie[/name]'s in the family tree so I’m also considering honoring them with the name [name]Maren[/name] - [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Maren[/name]?

I like [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Colette[/name] - [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] - [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Nicole[/name] - [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Mireille[/name] - [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Justine[/name] - [name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Fleur[/name] - I love French names too:-) My daughter will probably be [name]Clara[/name]/[name]Claire[/name] [name]Anneliese[/name]…
