One syllable middle names that don't seem filler?

Our front runners for the name of our baby girl are [name_f]Zafira[/name_f] and [name_f]Aziza[/name_f]. Because both are 3-syllables long, and she’ll have a double barrelled surname that in total is five syllables and we don’t want to give her a name that’s too long we’ve decided to give her a one syllable middle name.

We’re really struggling to find ones with both like though, because my husband thinks a lot of them sound ‘filler’. At the moment, the only two we both like are [name_f]Rose[/name_f] (which my husband still thinks sounds like a filler name) and [name_f]Lark[/name_f] (which was suggested to me on here, but actually has a lot of meaning to me).

I was hoping for some ideas? Our only rules are that it can’t begin with A, T or H and that it doesn’t contain a Z.
