New name to my list is a quick favorite

Iva Josephine

My great grandmother’s name was Ida so I was thinking I like Ivy but it’s more common than I like, what about Iva? I love the idea of stand out but simple Iva being able to be called Ivy/Ivy Jo informally. I would like a 2nd middle name, but the only name with personal reason I’d want to use is Rose and I can’t figure out why I’m just not in love with Iva Josephine Rose. Any suggestions welcome, but shorter probably favorable.

ETA: I like Iva Josephine Elise or Iva Josephine Ruth

[name_f]Iva[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] is sleek, bright and international in feel - I like it!

[name_f]Iva[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] is pretty and elegant - I like it!

I’ll suggest:

[name_f]Iva[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Lucy[/name_f]
[name_f]Iva[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Lois[/name_f]

[name_f]Iva[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Ruby[/name_f]
[name_f]Iva[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Layna[/name_f]
[name_f]Iva[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Mabel[/name_f]

Oh I think [name_f]Iva[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] is lovely.

Second @Greyblue’s suggestion of [name_f]Iva[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f]. [name_f]Iva[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] also very nice.

I love [name_f]Iva[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]!
I feel like this name is really complete by itself, it sounds just perfect as is, so all second middles feel like unnecessary additions to me. I’d do [name_f]Rose[/name_f] since nobody will call her by her full three names and meaning trumps flow any day for me.

[name_f]Iva[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] is gorgeous andnIvy [name_f]Jo[/name_f] is very cute. Does changing it to [name_f]Iva[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Rosa[/name_f] help?
