Suggestions to honor Mary and Sue or Suzanne in one name? Not Marysue please.

Fourth girl due in 8 weeks and no name!:cold_sweat: I would like to honor two [name_f]Mary[/name_f]’s and two [name_f]Sue[/name_f]’s with one name. What have I missed? [name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Sue[/name_f] doesn’t suite us.


[name_f]Malou[/name_f] (mary + sue) comes to mind.

You could also consider the meaning of the names - [name_f]Mary[/name_f] means bitter, and [name_f]Sue[/name_f] means lily. Maybe one of the [name_f]Lily[/name_f] names would work for you (Lilimar, [name_f]Liliana[/name_f], [name_f]Lilia[/name_f]).

I have given some thought to this because those are my mother’s names.

I like:
[name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Mary[/name_f] (my favorite, I know that is two names)
[name_f]Lily[/name_f] [name_f]Marie[/name_f] (again, two names)
[name_f]Maria[/name_f] [name_f]Lilia[/name_f]
[name_f]Miriam[/name_f] [name_f]Lily[/name_f]
[name_f]Mira[/name_f] [name_f]Susanne[/name_f]

I think you’re going to be hard pressed to find something that adequately satisfies both names in one without it sounding like [name_f]Mary[/name_f]-[name_f]Sue[/name_f].

These are a stretch but…

I agree that if you are against [name_f]Mary[/name_f]-[name_f]Sue[/name_f] (and I totally see why you are) you are going to be hard pressed to find an honor name for both that isn’t a huge stretch. I think you are best off using one in the middle. I personally think [name_f]Susan[/name_f] and variants sound nice with [name_f]Marie[/name_f] in the middle as it brings out her frenchness while still honoring [name_f]Mary[/name_f].
[name_f]Suzette[/name_f] [name_f]Marie[/name_f] and [name_f]Suzanne[/name_f] [name_f]Marie[/name_f] are both adorable [name_f]IMO[/name_f].

[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Susannah[/name_f]
[name_f]Susannah[/name_f] [name_f]Mary[/name_f]

Can’t you honor with two names? I also love both [name_f]Susannah[/name_f] [name_f]Mary[/name_f] and [name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Susannah[/name_f]!

I agree with using both rather than twisting each up so much they’re no longer recognizable and the honor is entirely diluted.

I like [name_f]Samara[/name_f] as suggested above. Or possibly Sumerre, which you’d have to explain to everyone was pronounced “[name_f]Su[/name_f]-[name_f]MAIR[/name_f].”

It seems like you’re quite attached to doing this in one name, but what about just [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Mary[/name_f] or [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] [name_f]Mia[/name_f] or [name_f]Suzanne[/name_f] [name_f]Maris[/name_f] or something similar?

I can only suggest first plus middle name combinations…

I agree with you all but hubby has shot everything down. [name_f]Suzette[/name_f] [name_f]Maire[/name_f] was actually my first choice but sadly it’s a no go. Thank you for al your ideas I’ll run some of them by daddy.

What about [name_f]Marianne[/name_f], from [name_f]MARy[/name_f] and [name_f]SuzANNE[/name_f]? I really like the idea of [name_f]Malou[/name_f] as well. There’s also Sumaya, but that might be a little weird to use if you don’t have Arab heritage.
