Thanks! I don’t have a middle name picked out. If I used a first name like [name]Aria[/name] I would probably go with a more traditional middle name, just in case they wanted to use that instead when they got older.

I love [name]Allegra[/name] but am probably shying away from it as a first name so that might be a good middle name depending on what first name is decided on.

I also totally know what you mean about the pronounciation thing. Its hard to pick something different but not “out there” that your kid will have to be constantly correcting people on how to say and spell!

I like a lot of these!

[name]Aria[/name]-- it’s pretty
[name]Arianna[/name]-- I like it. I think it’s prettier spelled [name]Ariana[/name]
[name]Allegra[/name]-- It’s ok…
[name]Elena[/name]-- Would you be pronouncing it [name]El[/name]-ay-na, or [name]Ellen[/name]-a (the Italian way)?
[name]Eliana[/name]-- This is pretty
[name]Krizia[/name]-- Interesting
[name]Giada[/name]-- Nice
[name]Serena[/name]-- Very pretty
[name]Martina[/name]-- I don’t like it that much
[name]Melania[/name]-- What about [name]Milena[/name] or [name]Melanie[/name] instead?
[name]Alaia[/name] (ah-lie-ah)-- I like it, and it has a lovely meaning too
[name]Ayana[/name]-- It’s ok
[name]Talia[/name]-- Gorgeous!

My favorites are [name]Elena[/name], [name]Eliana[/name], [name]Serena[/name], [name]Alaia[/name], and [name]Talia[/name].

I do like [name]Allegra[/name] - I believe its meaning in Italian is cheeful, which is very sweet. Another Italian option - [name]Alessia[/name]…always found this name very pretty!

[name]Aria[/name] & [name]Talia[/name] tie for my top choice.
[name]Allegra[/name] comes in 2nd for me.

I don’t really like the names [name]Krizia[/name] (sounds like Grizzle), [name]Martina[/name] (but that’s just b/c I’ve never liked the name [name]Martin[/name]), [name]Melania[/name] (but I [name]DO[/name] like [name]Melanie[/name]) …

Good luck!

[name]Aria[/name] - like. it’s pretty, but no WOW factor.
[name]Arianna[/name]- same. just seems merely pretty.
[name]Allegra[/name] - eh. it’s ok…

[name]Alaia[/name] (ah-lie-ah) - very pretty. seems almost exotic.

I love the name [name]Eliana[/name]. I think the nn “[name]Ellie[/name]” is very cute =)

Have you narrowed this down any further at all? Here’s some middle names for [name]Aria[/name]. I’ll suggest some “normal” middle names for [name]Aria[/name] (since that’s my pick :slight_smile: LOL), but I don’t think [name]Aria[/name] is “weird” at all. I think you could still have fun with the middle :slight_smile: (and who knows, maybe one of the “middle name” suggestions you’ll like as a first! :slight_smile:

[name]Aria[/name] [name]Fleur[/name]
[name]Aria[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]
[name]Aria[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Aria[/name] [name]Delphine[/name]
[name]Aria[/name] [name]Violet[/name]
[name]Aria[/name] [name]Isabella[/name]
[name]Aria[/name] [name]Gabrielle[/name]
[name]Aria[/name] [name]Kathleen[/name]
[name]Aria[/name] [name]Claire[/name]
[name]Aria[/name] [name]Camille[/name]
[name]Aria[/name] [name]Frances[/name]
[name]Aria[/name] [name]Josephine[/name]

[name]Aria[/name] - a lot of people like this and I like the sound of it but it’s too associated with music for me and doesn’t seem like a real name. I understand its appeal though
[name]Arianna[/name] - ok
[name]Allegra[/name] - my favorite. I love the sound, I love the meaning–the only downside is the allergy medication. And I say, it’s time we took this name back!!! :slight_smile:
[name]Elena[/name] - like but agree there may be pronunciation differences. if that is ok with you, I like this one
[name]Eliana[/name] - not my favorite
[name]Krizia[/name] - I’ve never heard of this name before
[name]Giada[/name] - not my style
[name]Serena[/name] - I like this one quite a lot
[name]Martina[/name] - don’t care for this one
[name]Melania[/name] - don’t care for this one
[name]Alaia[/name] (ah-lie-ah) - I can see how it would be pronounced this way, laia like maia but I don’t generally like names that you need to think about before you can pronounce. If pronunciation issues or having to correct people doesn’t bother you, then this could be a good option. I do like all the vowels :slight_smile:
[name]Ayana[/name] - not my style
[name]Talia[/name] - ok

My favorites in order - [name]Allegra[/name], [name]Serena[/name], [name]Talia[/name], [name]Elena[/name], [name]Alaia[/name].

Edited to add that I looked up [name]Krizia[/name] and found that it is a short form of [name]Lucrezia[/name] and is also a brand name. I don’t think I like this one. I would consider [name]Lucrezia[/name] though if I were you.

[name]Talia[/name] and [name]Eliana[/name] r my fav.

[name]Aria[/name]: ok
[name]Arianna[/name]: Nice but popular–I also like the the spelling [name]Ariana[/name].
[name]Allegra[/name]: nice, but it’s the name of an allergy medicine
[name]Elena[/name]: I like it.
[name]Eliana[/name]: ok
[name]Krizia[/name]: not my favorite
[name]Giada[/name]: I love it!
[name]Serena[/name]: I love it
[name]Martina[/name]: not my fav
[name]Melania[/name]: Nice
[name]Alaia[/name] (ah-lie-ah): Nice, but has definite pronounciation issues.
[name]Ayana[/name]: not my fav
[name]Talia[/name]: I like it, but I prefer it as a nn for [name]Natalia[/name].

Pity about [name]Alessia[/name]. :frowning: If you liked that, what about [name]Aeliana[/name] or [name]Aurelia[/name]?

[name]Hi[/name] - these are pretty names…of all of them, I like [name]Serena[/name] or [name]Elena[/name].

[name]Aria[/name] – I don’t know; it seems like [name]Arabella[/name] to me, but I’m not too fond of it.
[name]Arianna[/name] – It does have some appeal to it, but I prefer [name]Allegra[/name].
[name]Allegra[/name] – [name]Love[/name] this! (:
[name]Elena[/name] – I do like [name]Elena[/name].
[name]Eliana[/name] – I prefer [name]Elena[/name].
[name]Krizia[/name] – Not a big fan.
[name]Giada[/name] – Sort of pretty.
[name]Serena[/name] – I dislike [name]Serena[/name], don’t know why. :confused:
[name]Martina[/name] – I greatly dislike [name]Martina[/name].
[name]Melania[/name] – [name]Don[/name]'t like it too much.
[name]Alaia[/name] (ah-lie-ah) – I don’t like the spelling. The ‘i’ looks sort of strange there, though I’d never change it. Of course, I probably like some other names that look like this! xD
[name]Ayana[/name] – ‘Y’s’ are randomly thrown into names, and very trendy as of now… I just don’t like it altogether.
[name]Talia[/name] – Nice enough. (:
