Thoughts on a middle for Ella

I am looking for a middle name for [name_f]Ella[/name_f]. I am completely aware of her popularity, but we have a rather unusual surname and we both like her!!

I was happy with [name_f]Xanthe[/name_f], but hubby is not a fan. He would like a Hebrew name, but that is not as important as flow for us.

No 2 syllable -a ending names like [name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Ada[/name_f].

No filler or one syllable names like [name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Jade[/name_f] or [name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u]. I do like [name_u]Wren[/name_u] but want some longer and more interesting.

Also ‘trying’ to avoid name with -uh sound in the middle like [name_f]EllA[/name_f] [name_u]Ade/name_uline; this one just depends.

Some I’ve been thinking about that hubby doesn’t like:
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Daphne[/name_f]
Hubby suggested [name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f], but she feels a little plain…

Would love some suggestions!!

[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Juliette[/name_f]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Summer[/name_f]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_u]Vivian[/name_u]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f]

[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Daisy[/name_f]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_u]Everly[/name_u]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Sparrow[/name_f]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_u]Phoenix[/name_u]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_u]Prairie[/name_u]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Clarity[/name_f]

Most of the long Hebrew names I can think of start with [name_f]El[/name_f], so my suggestions may not check all the marks.

[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_u]Cassidy[/name_u]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Delphine[/name_f]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Felicity[/name_f]

[name_f]Ella[/name_f] Lilach
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_u]Lior[/name_u]/[name_f]Liorit[/name_f]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Marceline[/name_f]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Margot[/name_f]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Maxine[/name_f]
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] Meirit
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] Meital

[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Tamar[/name_f] (although not sure the religious associations are great with this one)
[name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Therese[/name_f]

Eliana and Eliora could give the nn Ella, and they’re both Hebrew. But it sounds like you’ve pretty much settled on just Ella.

Ella Magdalen / Ella Magdalene
Ella Salome
Ella Magali
Ella Katriel
Ella Simone
Ella Judith
Ella Noemi

Ella Merewen
Ella Rosalind
Ella Marion
Ella Constance
Ella Patience
Ella Marigold

I love [name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f] but agree that it feels a bit expected.
