Still searching for the perfect middle name for [name]Calla[/name].

Here are our current forerunners:

[name]Calla[/name] [name]Viola[/name] (VYE-oh-la) – Probably our first pick for now. I love this flow, even though it’s L-heavy, and it was actually part of my great grandmother ([name]Calla[/name])'s name. My concern is that everyone will pronounce it incorrectly. I’m sticking with the Shakespearean pronunciation. The double flower thing doesn’t concern me, but I am a little concerned about it sounding like “vile.”

[name]Calla[/name] [name]Eowyn[/name] – Vowel-to-vowel run-together is my biggest concern. We love the Tolkien connection.

[name]Calla[/name] [name]Odette[/name] – Again, vowel-to-vowel. [name]Love[/name] the ballet and poetry (“ode”) associations.

Thoughts and suggestions welcome, although J middle name are out for us.
Thanks!

[name]Calla[/name] [name]Viola[/name] is lovely, although they both have an a ending I think it words okay :slight_smile: Is [name]Calla[/name] not a type of [name]Violet[/name] though?
