New here - need advice

[name]Hi[/name] all! I’ve been lurking here but have never posted. I’m hoping you all can help. I am looking for a first name that goes well with [name]JUNE[/name] as a middle name. [name]June[/name] is my grandmother’s name and one I’d really like to use. But, I’m having trouble coming up with a first name that sounds good with it. So far, my first name choices are:

[name]Abigail[/name] (too popular?)

What do you think and are there any other “classic” names that sound okay with [name]June[/name]? My last Name starts with Bl and ends in -ing. Thanks for your input!

From your choices, I like [name]Mia[/name] [name]June[/name] and [name]Clara[/name] [name]June[/name].

[name]Welcome[/name]! From your list I really like the sound of [name]Mariah[/name] and [name]Clara[/name] with [name]June[/name]. [name]Abigail[/name] is fairly popular but would still sound great with it. Here are my attempts at a few classic suggestions, if you’re interested:

[name]Penelope[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Veronica[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Alexandra[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Ivy[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Cassandra[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Victoria[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Rebecca[/name] [name]June[/name]

[name]Vanessa[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Annabel[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Priscilla[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Helena[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Cecilia[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Olympia[/name] [name]June[/name]

[name]June[/name] is such a wonderful middle name to work with!

[name]Caroline[/name] [name]June[/name] - love, love, love!
[name]Abigail[/name] [name]June[/name] - I do love [name]Abigail[/name], but it is a bit popular
[name]Mia[/name]/[name]Maia[/name] [name]June[/name] - I think both names work with [name]June[/name], I prefer [name]Maia[/name] slightly
[name]Anna[/name] [name]June[/name] - probably like this the least with [name]June[/name]
[name]Mariah[/name] [name]June[/name] - also lovely
[name]Clara[/name] [name]June[/name] - I think this is such a sweet name!

My favourite is [name]Caroline[/name] [name]June[/name], followed by [name]Clara[/name] [name]June[/name] and [name]Maia[/name] [name]June[/name]. I think they’re all absolutely beautiful!

[name]Caroline[/name] A beautiful name but I don’t like it with [name]June[/name]
[name]Abigail[/name] (too popular?) It is nice but
[name]Mia[/name] Only as a nn for [name]Amelia[/name] and [name]Amelia[/name] [name]June[/name] sounds beautiful
[name]Anna[/name] Always a good choice
[name]Mariah[/name] I always think of the black mariah (police car) so its out
[name]Clara[/name] Possible

[name]Claudia[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Freya[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Daphne[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Ella[/name] [name]June[/name]

Great suggestions so far!

[name]Alison[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Audrey[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Callista[/name] [name]June[/name] - nn [name]Calla[/name] or [name]Callie[/name]
[name]Laura[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Lara[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]June[/name]

[name]Love[/name] Disa’s idea of [name]Matilda[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Love[/name] [name]Jill[/name]'s idea of [name]Miranda[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Love[/name] [name]Rollo[/name]'s idea of [name]Claudia[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Love[/name] Teabee’s idea of [name]Veronica[/name] [name]June[/name]. That’s my fave, of course!
[name]Love[/name] your idea of [name]Clara[/name] [name]June[/name].

Thank you all for your responses and wonderful ideas! I’ve added a few of your suggestions to my top picks list. A little background…When I first found out I was pregnant the first and only name that popped into my head was [name]Caroline[/name] for a girl, so I keep going back to it, but it isn’t my favorite with [name]June[/name]…Second for me is probably [name]Clara[/name] followed by [name]Mia[/name] or [name]Maia[/name]. [name]Mariah[/name] would potentially be used after my mother in law, [name]Maria[/name], but hubby isn’t all that fond of it. He (hubby) is pushing for [name]Anna[/name], but again I agree with the majority of you that it isn’t the best choice with [name]June[/name], not to mention my son’s name is [name]Andrew[/name] (nn [name]Drew[/name]), [name]Andrew[/name] and [name]Anna[/name], I don’t know about that! Anyhow, I [name]LOVE[/name] the following suggestions and they are definitely part of my name bag going forward:

[name]Amelia[/name] [name]June[/name] (nn [name]Mia[/name])
[name]Alison[/name] [name]June[/name] (nn [name]Allie[/name]) - I hadn’t even thought of this one before :slight_smile:
[name]Claudia[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Louisa[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Rosalie[/name] [name]June[/name] - I ABSOLUTELY [name]LOVE[/name] IT but I am worried about the “Twilight” association
[name]Victoria[/name] [name]Juna[/name] - Again, one I hadn’t really thought of!

I’ve also added [name]Camilla[/name] [name]June[/name] to my list although there could be bad associations with that name as well and I don’t love [name]Cammie[/name] as a nn.

Another option would be to use a variation of [name]June[/name] and go with something like:
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Junelle[/name].

Well, thankfully we have a few more months to decide! I didn’t have this naming problem with my son!

Thanks again!

I wish you could use [name]Caroline[/name], so do you think if you used another Ju name it would still honour your grandmother?

[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Julia[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Juliana[/name]

or make a three name combo

[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Hazel[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Esther[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Mia[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Amanda[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Helen[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Margot[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Melissa[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Alyssa[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Adele[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Daisy[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Lilac[/name] [name]June[/name]

What about [name]Caroline[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] or [name]Caroline[/name] [name]Junia[/name]?

Unfortunately, I’m not that big into double middle names but thanks for the suggestions. I am thinking of possibly going with

[name]Caroline[/name] [name]Junelle[/name] or [name]Caroline[/name] [name]Arlene[/name] which is my grandmother’s middle name. [name]Just[/name] worried that they both are mouth fulls since [name]Caroline[/name] is already a longer name.

Hmph! Decisions, decisions…I do still like [name]Clara[/name] [name]June[/name] a lot! Sweet sounding.
