Settled on Lilac now MNs....

We have settled on [name]Lilac[/name] for our daughter who is due on [name]Saturday[/name]. We need two middle names. Here are the two names we have a moment. Can I have honest opinions pleases on which one you prefer and why.

[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Ariella[/name] [name]Eve[/name]
[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Serafina[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]

Also what would you say are possible nicknames for [name]Lilac[/name]?
[name]TIA[/name] :slight_smile:

[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Serafina[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] - it’s simply angelic, absolutely love it, although I love [name]Ariella[/name] and [name]Eve[/name] on their own together they just don’t seem to flow as well as [name]Serafina[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]. Are you still looking for more suggestions? if so, what about:

[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Juliana[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Ariana[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Georgiana[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Evelina[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Elodia[/name] [name]Jules[/name]
[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Isabella[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]

…but I still [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Lilac[/name] [name]Serafina[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] :slight_smile:

I love [name]Lilac[/name] [name]Serafina[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]! It’s so pretty.

[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Aurelia[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]
[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name] [name]Claire[/name]
[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Amelie[/name] [name]Fleur[/name]
[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Mina[/name] [name]Juliet[/name]

I love [name]Lilac[/name], so sophisticated and lovely!

[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Ariella[/name] [name]Eve[/name] - I don’t really care for [name]Ariella[/name] in this combo
[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Serafina[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] - I like [name]Lilac[/name] [name]Serafina[/name] but [name]Pearl[/name] is still old-lady to me (just imo).

I vote for [name]Lilac[/name] [name]Serafina[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] as the best combination but what would you think of [name]Lilac[/name] [name]Serafina[/name] [name]Eve[/name]? I just love [name]Eve[/name] and feel it is so underused.

For nicknames: Since it’s such a short name I assume you just want ideas on what to call her for short (like [name]Vi[/name] for [name]Violet[/name]), not necessarily all the time (like [name]Mike[/name] for [name]Michael[/name]). With such a lovely name, I’m sure you’ll call her [name]Lilac[/name] a lot :slight_smile: but how about Li, [name]Lyle[/name], [name]Lee[/name]-[name]Lee[/name], Miss L

[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Ariella[/name] [name]Eve[/name]: I like all three names, but I don’t think they flow very well together. The C from [name]Lilac[/name] attaches to the A in [name]Ariella[/name] (I hear Car when I say it out loud), and because [name]Ariella[/name] ends in a vowel and [name]Eve[/name] begins with one, it creates a pause when I say the name out loud.

[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Serafina[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]: I think this is very pretty, and I think it has a nice flow. :slight_smile: With [name]Serafina[/name] between [name]Lilac[/name] and [name]Pearl[/name], I don’t even think of a lilac colored pearl.

Now that I think about it, I also like the flow of [name]Lilac[/name] [name]Seraphine[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] a lot.

[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] [name]May[/name]/[name]Mae[/name]/[name]Maude[/name]/[name]Pearl[/name]/[name]Belle[/name]
[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Jessamine[/name] [name]Belle[/name]/[name]Claire[/name] (two flower names, though)
[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Mirabelle[/name] [name]Jane[/name]/[name]May[/name]/[name]Mae[/name]/[name]June[/name]
[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Seraphine[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]/[name]Belle[/name]/[name]May[/name] (gives you the [name]Eve[/name] you like)

I think any [name]Lil[/name] name works as a nickname: [name]Lila[/name], [name]Lily[/name], [name]Lil[/name]…

I think [name]Lilac[/name] is a beautiful name. :slight_smile:

Good luck!

[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Ariella[/name] [name]Eve[/name] I think that this is a lovely combo because it is feminine, pretty and has great flow and is not over the top but still unusual.

[name]Lilac[/name] [name]Serafina[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] Yes it flows but it doesn’t have the appeal of the former combo.

I would have to say that [name]Lilac[/name]'s nn will surely be [name]Lily[/name].

both are very nice. nn [name]Lyla[/name]
