The Perfect Middle Name For Esme! Help wanted!!

Hello! I’ve been a reader far longer than a commenter but I’d love some help! My husband and I have a daughter named
Isl@ [name]Grey[/name]. We are expecting in two weeks today and we still don’t have a middle name that I looooove! We don’t know what we are having but if we have a girl, we are almost 100% sure we will name a girl [name]Esme[/name]. Our last name is two syllables and ends in an “ie”. I love the idea of a “fun” middle name. Any suggestions are welcome! Thankyou!!

I really like…

[name]Esme[/name] [name]Poppy[/name] (but not sure I can do a double syllable and a “y” with our last name!)
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] (My Grandma’s middle name is [name]Rita[/name], which means [name]Pearl[/name]!)
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Plum[/name] (unfortunatly too many “m’s” with our last name, otherwise my favorite)
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Clover[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Hazel[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Beatrix[/name] (Took awhile but hubby likes [name]Beatrix[/name])
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Veronica[/name]

Thanks for the help!:stuck_out_tongue:

Wow, your daughter has such a great name! And I love how it sounds with [name]Esme[/name]. :slight_smile:

Considering your last name, my favorite combo is [name]Esme[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] – Cute as a button for a child, really sophisticated for an adult, plus the family connection is great!

Some other ideas:
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Lane[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Sage[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Violet[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Tess[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Rae[/name] (probably too close to [name]Grey[/name], but I love it!)
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Rain[/name]/[name]Raine[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Lark[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Fern[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]

[name]Isla[/name] [name]Grey[/name] and [name]Esme[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] are great together. I really like when middle names have meaning and I think [name]Pearl[/name] is perfect with [name]Esme[/name]!

[name]Isla[/name] and [name]Esme[/name] are so great together I love this as a sib-set.
Personally I’d try to stay with a short mn as well.
[name]Pearl[/name] and [name]Plum[/name] were my favorite of your list though since [name]Plum[/name] is out here are some suggestions. (* denotes @sunshine.10’s choices as well).

[name]Esme[/name] [name]Sage[/name]*
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Lane[/name]*
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Viola[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Willa[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Lyric[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Fleur[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Dove[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Cyan[/name]

Thanks for your feed back and suggestions! Nice to have a little reassurance! Right now, [name]Esme[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] is the front runner. I do really wish I could have [name]Esme[/name] [name]Plum[/name] (even though DH isn’t on board).

Loved the suggestions…

[name]Esme[/name] [name]Lane[/name]
[name]Esme[/name] [name]Viola[/name]

Thanks again!! :slight_smile:

I love, love, love, love, love [name]Esme[/name] [name]Pearl[/name].

I love [name]Clover[/name], [name]Plum[/name] and [name]Fern[/name].

Some fanciful and fun ideas (some may be a bit out there, but I hear fun and want to go a little crazy :))

I say go for [name]Pearl[/name]. [name]Esme[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] is such a lovely name. [name]Love[/name] [name]Isla[/name] [name]Grey[/name]. :slight_smile:

[name]Esme[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] is just perfect with [name]Isla[/name] [name]Grey[/name].

I was going to say [name]Esme[/name] [name]Lucille[/name] before I opened the thread, but I think [name]Esme[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] is gorgeous!

Esme [name]Silvia[/name]

You’ve already found the perfect combination. Matches the style and rhythm of your first daughter’s name, avoids ending in a vowel sound ([name]Esme[/name] and -ie need a nice closed-syllable middle name for balance), and has a family connection to boot.

Go with [name]Esme[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]!

My daughter’s names are [name]Isla[/name] [name]Phoebe[/name] and Esmé [name]Helena[/name].

[name]Esme[/name] [name]Ruth[/name] is the first thing that came to my mind

I love [name]Esme[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]. It’s beautiful.

[name]Esme[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] really is pretty. [name]Just[/name] as another suggestion, what about [name]Esme[/name] [name]Luna[/name]?

Thanks so much for the replies! [name]Love[/name] [name]Esme[/name] [name]Luna[/name], I think it doesn’t flow well with our last name.
emilykate–love your daughters names! Great choices! :wink:
