Olive Mae or Ava Mae

We really like [name]Olive[/name], but need the perfect middle name. We also like the name [name]Ava[/name]. I am drawn to [name]Olive[/name] [name]Mae[/name] or [name]Ava[/name] [name]Mae[/name]. Is [name]Ava[/name] [name]Mae[/name] too country? Any thoughts?

If you really love [name]Olive[/name] and want a more unique name, then go with it. [name]Ava[/name] is cute, but it is quite trendy. I’m not in love with [name]Mae[/name], but [name]Ava[/name] [name]Mae[/name] has a good flow despite its country sound…

Does the middle name need to be one syllable?

[name]Olive[/name] [name]Cate[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Clare[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Fern[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Lane[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Nell[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Paige[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Quinn[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Reese[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Sage[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Shea[/name]

If you want a longer name, [name]Olive[/name] [name]Cornelia[/name] would be pretty!

I like [name]Olive[/name] much better than [name]Ava[/name]–[name]Olive[/name] is so much more distinctive and [name]Ava[/name] is so trendy. But I don’t really like [name]Olive[/name] [name]Mae[/name]. Here are some other middle name suggestions:

[name]Olive[/name] [name]Amelia[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Raisa[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Natasha[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Jacqueline[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Clea[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Amity[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Hope[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Maxine[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Eliza[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Teresa[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Tiana[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Truth[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Cordelia[/name]

I hope this helps!

[name]Hi[/name]! I love the spunky [name]Olive[/name] and prefer it to [name]Ava[/name] [name]Mae[/name], not only because [name]Ava[/name] is so trendy, but because [name]Ava[/name] [name]Mae[/name] sounds very “long A heavy” to me.

[name]Olive[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name]
[name]Olive[/name] [name]Bess[/name]

Good luck!

I can’t help myself despite its popularity I just love [name]Ava[/name]. I think it is so glamorous.

My fave combo is [name]Ava[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]

my daughter has a classmate named [name]Ava[/name] [name]Mae[/name] and my first thought was that it sounded way too country. I like [name]Olive[/name] way more.

I like the flow of [name]Ava[/name] [name]Mae[/name] more than [name]Olive[/name] [name]Mae[/name].

I dont think that [name]Ava[/name] [name]Mae[/name] sounds country at all. I love the name [name]Ava[/name], even though it is common (and the middle name of [name]Mae[/name]). [name]Olive[/name] isn’t my style, but what matters is if you love it! I like that all three names are short, classy and pretty! :slight_smile:

I like [name]Olive[/name], but I don’t think [name]Olive[/name] [name]Mae[/name] has an ideal flow. [name]Ava[/name] [name]Mae[/name] is adorable, but [name]Ava[/name] is very popular. I hear it more than [name]Emma[/name] where I live.

I think [name]Olive[/name] sounds good with a longer name with a vowel beginning like [name]Olive[/name] [name]Amelia[/name], [name]Olive[/name] [name]Adelia[/name], [name]Olive[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name], [name]Olive[/name] [name]Adelaide[/name], [name]Olive[/name] [name]Imogen[/name], [name]Olive[/name] [name]Addison[/name]… (you get the idea).

I like [name]Olive[/name] [name]Mae[/name] best. [name]Mae[/name] sounds fine with it but it’s rather plain.
