Wanted: a middle name

[name]Eliza[/name] is my favorite name, and I need a middle name worthy of it.

Could you wonderful babyname experts :ugeek: and addicts :geek: give me some suggestions? I’d like it to be fairly long, and NOT filler. I’m also very partial to Irish or Welsh names. Please avoid names that begin with E or L.

Here is my top five (okay, six) list so you can see what other kinds of names I like and what my style is:

  1. [name]Eliza[/name] ________
  2. [name]Cassia[/name] [name]Rhiannon[/name]
  3. [name]Gwendolen[/name] [name]Carys[/name]
  4. [name]Veronica[/name] [name]Lenore[/name]
  5. [name]Selena[/name] [name]Margaux[/name]
  6. [name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Seren[/name] ([name]Cordelia[/name] and [name]Selena[/name] are tied :oops: )

Holy cow that is a lot of suggestions! More, I want more. Mwahahaha. :lol:

I’ll try to respond to as many as I can. means I’ll add it to my idea list. :smiley: I’ll try to take out the repeats, too.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Cassidy[/name] - [name]Cassidy[/name] is too similar to [name]Cassia[/name].
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Flannery[/name] - bit too last namey
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Meriel[/name] - [name]Love[/name]! - I agree. Definitely going to look it up.

[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Roisin[/name] - I’ve considered it before, and it already is on my list*
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Rosaleen[/name] - I’m not fond of the ‘ee’ look.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Bronwen[/name] - Also considered it. One of my favorite possibles.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Guinevere[/name] - [name]Love[/name]! - I love these two as well, but as you can see I can’t use them because of [name]Gwendolen[/name] already being a fave.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Gwendolen[/name] - [name]Love[/name]! - Ummm. I can’t use [name]Gwendolen[/name].
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Meredith[/name] - Nice, though I’m not in love
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Winifred[/name] - not a fan of the ‘fred’ sound.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Myfanwy[/name] - My first thought was “my fanny” with this spelling
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Vaughan[/name] - Not a fan of unisex names.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Branwen[/name] - Prefer [name]Bronwen[/name]
[name]Eliza[/name] Ceinwen ([name]CAIN[/name]-wen) - Prefer [name]Bronwen[/name]
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Ceridwen[/name] - Hmmm. Interesting, I’ll look it up.
[name]Eliza[/name] Meleri - [name]Eleri[/name] is one of my faves. I’ve never heard of Meleri. I’ll look it up.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Morwenna[/name] - [name]Love[/name] the sound of Morwenn, but not fond of both names ending in ‘a’
[name]Eliza[/name] Nanlys - Interesting, I’ll look it up.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Olwen[/name] - Looks masculine for some reason
[name]Eliza[/name] Sanant - ditto the one below.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Sian[/name] - Pretty, but I’m not sure I like the S sound with [name]Eliza[/name]'s Z sound.
[name]Eliza[/name] Talfryn (another male name that works well for a girl)
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Clodagh[/name] (Irish river name pronounced KLOH-dah) - Again, not liking the two names with -a endings.
[name]Eliza[/name] Bebhinn (BEH-vin) - Interesting.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Bernadette[/name] (actually French but popular in [name]Ireland[/name]) - I have a bad association with this.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Brighid[/name] ([name]BRIDE[/name]) - Not liking the pronunciation.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Caoimhe[/name] (KEE-vy) - I’ve had [name]Caoimhe[/name] on my list forever, but I was sure it was pronounced Keev-ah.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Maeve[/name] - I like [name]Maeve[/name] more than [name]Niamh[/name], but I don’t think I’ll use it.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Mairead[/name] (MAW-reed) Interesting. Another one to look up.
[name]Eliza[/name] Mor (MOHR) - Sounds like the word more, and probably too short.
[name]Eliza[/name] Moireann (MOHR-rin) -
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Sinead[/name] - I can’t get over the spelling. I know that isn’t how it is pronounced, but it looks like Sin Need.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Siobhan[/name] - Was on my list for a while, but I’ve moved past it. I may revist it. *
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] - [name]Juliet[/name] is one of my favorite middle names, but I’m not sure I like it with [name]Eliza[/name].
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Marguerite[/name] - Makes me think of [name]Margarita[/name].
[name]Eliza[/name] Chrysanthe - I will look this one up.*
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name] - Nice sound, but [name]Beatrice[/name] really isn’t my style
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Guinevere[/name] - Again, I’m not going to use names that are too similar to my favorites. For the record, though I love this.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] - [name]May[/name] be far enough from [name]Gwendolen[/name] to work*
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Aurelie[/name] - I think I’ll avoid names that start with A as well as those that start with E or L. I should have said something earlier.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Jessamine[/name] - One of my favorite names, I’ve never thought about them together. Definitely list-worthy.***
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Vivienne[/name] - Actually, this is what I had [name]Eliza[/name] paired with last. I just don’t think it quite does [name]Eliza[/name] justice, though.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Naomi[/name] - Very pretty sound. The “I moan” thing has always put me off it, though. [name]Even[/name] as a middle name.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Ffion[/name] - Hmmm. Not sure what to think. I’ll come back.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Josephine[/name] - Very pretty, but I’m not a [name]Josephine[/name] fan.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Maelle[/name] - Too much L sound.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Corinne[/name] - I think I like it, but I’m on the fence*
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Delphine[/name] - Very pretty, [name]Delphine[/name] is on my list already*
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Seraphine[/name] - [name]Seraphine[/name] is on my list, too. [name]Just[/name] maybe too much S sound.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Rosalind[/name] - Soooo pretty. [name]Rosetta[/name] and [name]Rosalind[/name]/e are also on my list.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Daphne[/name] - I love [name]Daphne[/name], but I don’t think it flows here.

[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Gwendolen[/name]!!!

Thanks, but no thanks. I love [name]Gwendolen[/name], but I prefer it as a first name. I’m looking for a name BESIDES the ones I ALREADY have on my list. This is the third time [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Gwendolen[/name] has been suggested.

Any more suggestions? :?:

Does anyone else have any more suggestions for a middle name for [name]Eliza[/name]?
