MN for Susanna

We’re considering [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] nn [name_f]Anna[/name_f] /[name_f]Annie[/name_f] for our baby due in the fall.

Our first choice is [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] ([name_f]Olivia[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]) but it’s sooo popular. [name_f]Anna[/name_f] would be our top choice but it rhymes with our surname.

So [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] is currently our second option. It has a lovely meaning (a lily), it has a lot of lovely nickname options including [name_f]Anna[/name_f] and it’s pronounced the same way in different languages (we’re a Scandinavian-American-British family so this is important).

WDYT of [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] and these middle names?

[name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Alice[/name_f]
[name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Daisy[/name_f]
[name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] --love this but [name_f]Rose[/name_f] is too common in the middle spot
[name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]

Any other suggestions? I like names with nature / literary connections but nothing too frilly /long.

My first thought was [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f], actually, before I even opened the thread! I don’t think it’s ‘too common’, necessarily. If you were talking [name_f]Marie[/name_f] or [name_f]Grace[/name_f]…yeah, those are super common mns, but [name_f]Rose[/name_f] is just beautiful. [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] is also adorable, and I love classic [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] paired wih the unexpected [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]. I like [name_f]Alice[/name_f] a lot, but [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Alice[/name_f] doesn’t flow as well as the other three, imo.

Other Nature-y suggestions:

[name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]
[name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Belle[/name_f]

[name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] is my favorite of your combos as well! I really don’t think popularity matters as much with the middle name because you don’t use your middle name as often.

[name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] is beautiful.

I also love the suggestion [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Lilac[/name_f] & [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Primrose[/name_f]!

I love [name_f]Susanna[/name_f]!

I had [name_f]Susannah[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] in my signature for quite some time! It’s a [name_f]LOVELY[/name_f] combination.

I love all of your [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] combos, especially [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]. It’s a pity that you can’t use [name_f]Anna[/name_f] on its own, if you prefer it, but it works as a nickname for [name_f]Susanna[/name_f]. I never thought of it before, as [name_f]Susie[/name_f] would be more obvious, but [name_f]Anna[/name_f] could be short for any name ending in [name_f]Anna[/name_f], as well as those beginning in it, such as [name_f]Annalise[/name_f] and [name_f]Annabel[/name_f]. The “lily” meaning is lovely, as you said.

[name_f]Susannah[/name_f] [name_f]Alice[/name_f] is difficult to say, but otherwise the rest are great. Yes, [name_f]Rose[/name_f] is used a lot, but it has such a nice image and sound. [name_f]Susannah[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f] came to my mind immediately, as did [name_f]Susannah[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]. I would also consider [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] is you love those names.

I adore [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Daisy[/name_f]! They are 2 fabulous names that sound wonderful together. My second choice from your list is [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f], also 2 good names that flow well together. I’m also put off by the fact that every second girl out there has [name_f]Rose[/name_f] as a middle name - it loses its gloss after a while, though I love [name_f]Rose[/name_f] as a first name. [name_f]Alice[/name_f] is lovely but doesn’t flow well with [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] because the end and start sounds are too similar.

[name_f]Susannah[/name_f] [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] is so happy and gorgeous!

[name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] is gorgeous! It feels so cheerful and happy and spunky and makes me think of spring, a little girl running through a meadow of tall grass under the warm sunshine and blue sky. [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] is a close second, it feels a lot more mature and sophisticated, proper and put-together- the kind of girl who never stains her clothes or loses things.

If you don’t like how popular [name_f]Rose[/name_f] is as a middle name, what about [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f], [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] or [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f]? Also, if you like [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] and nature names, what about [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Olive[/name_f]?

Someone on Nameberry had the combo [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] (or maybe it was [name_f]Susannah[/name_f]), which I really liked. Some more suggestions:
