Middle Names for Piper and Hazel

My husband and I are having our first children next month and they are twin girls. We have been certain about the first names [name_u]Piper[/name_u] and [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] for a long time because we both like them. However, we can’t think of good middle names. Some names that are important in our family are [name_f]Greta[/name_f], [name_u]Billie[/name_u], and [name_f]Marie[/name_f]. Also, the last name is [name_m]Foster[/name_m]. Thank you for any help you can offer!

Some ideas based on the family names:

[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] and [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_u]Marian[/name_u] (or [name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_u]Marian[/name_u] and [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Margaret[/name_f])
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Willa[/name_f] and [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Maren[/name_f] / [name_f]Marina[/name_f]
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] and [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Willa[/name_f]

[name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] and [name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Anne[/name_f]-[name_f]Marie[/name_f]

[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Marie[/name_f] & [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Margaret[/name_f]
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Gretchen[/name_f] & [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Wilhelmina[/name_f]

[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Marie[/name_f]
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Violet[/name_f]
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Mila[/name_f]
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Claire[/name_f]
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Margot[/name_f]

[name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_u]Blue[/name_u]
[name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f]
[name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Renee[/name_f]
[name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Greta[/name_f]
[name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Eva[/name_f]

[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Marie[/name_f] and [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_u]Billie[/name_u] would be cute! Or [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Greta[/name_f] and [name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Marie[/name_f]

[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] (combining [name_f]Marie[/name_f] and [name_u]Billie[/name_u])
[name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Gracie[/name_f] ([name_f]Marie[/name_f], [name_u]Billie[/name_u] and [name_f]Greta[/name_f])
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]
[name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Maren[/name_f]
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Gracie[/name_f]
[name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Juliette[/name_f]
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Sybil[/name_f]
[name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Maggie[/name_f]
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f]
[name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Etta[/name_f]
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Millie[/name_f]
[name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f]
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Adele[/name_f]
[name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Emilia[/name_f]
[name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Sophia[/name_f]

Thank you for all of the great suggestions! We really like [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] for [name_u]Piper[/name_u] because of the combination of [name_f]Marie[/name_f] and [name_u]Billie[/name_u] and it was, coincidentally, the name of my husband’s great grandmother. We also like [name_f]Margot[/name_f] and [name_u]Blue[/name_u]. For [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] we like [name_f]Gretchen[/name_f] and [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] (another significant name on my side of the family), but we are not too sure.

I think Mabel would be too similar to Hazel as a middle name for Piper. Maybe Maeve? I’m not a big fan of Gretchen either. Maybe Genevieve? I think Hazel Maeve and Piper Genevieve would be great or vice versa. Margaret also works good.

My husband just mentioned the name [name_f]Tamsin[/name_f] which seems to work well with either first name. I also like it because it means “twin.” For the other middle name [name_u]Tatum[/name_u] could work because my husband and I both like this name. It also seems to work well with either [name_u]Piper[/name_u] or [name_f]Hazel[/name_f]. Please let me know what you think!

[name_f]Tamsin[/name_f] is a favourite of mine and I also like [name_u]Tatum[/name_u], so I think they would be great as middles, especially given the meaning of twin. [name_f]Tamsin[/name_f] sounds good with both of them but I prefer [name_u]Tatum[/name_u] with [name_u]Piper[/name_u] so: [name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_u]Tatum[/name_u] and [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Tamsin[/name_f].

Or I really like [name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Tamsin[/name_f] and [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Greta[/name_f].

First off, [name_u]Piper[/name_u] and [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] are great! I love that set so much; both vintage, yet fresh! Also, [name_u]Piper[/name_u] and [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] are two main characters from the PJO book series that I grew up reading…that’s actually why I clicked on this post. You probably haven’t heard of it, but that just makes those names feel so much warmer and appealing to me.

As for middle names, [name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Marie[/name_f] is definitely sweet. I picture a little girl with long hair pulled back into two pigtail braids for some reason! [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Greta[/name_f] or [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_u]Billie[/name_u] are alright, but neither stick out to me that much… but [name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Marie[/name_f] seems like a winner to me! [name_u]Piper[/name_u] [name_f]Maree[/name_f] could be an alternative too :slight_smile:
