Baby Name Needed – Girl Name that Goes with Elizabeth

A reader named Jill is expecting her third child (her second girl) and is having a hard time coming up with a name. She’s looking for something that:

  • Goes well with Elizabeth as a middle name,
  • Is easy to spell,
  • Isn’t trendy,
  • Isn’t gender neutral,
  • Doesn’t start with the letter “K,” and
  • Doesn’t start with a letter that would cause the initials to spell something questionable. [The only letter I could come up with for this was “M,” to avoid M.E.H.]

Jill and her husband were set on the name Scarlet…until it was chosen by a family member. They also liked Bronwyn for a time, but Jill isn’t as keen on it anymore.

Here are some of the ideas I had:

Astrid
Alice
Beatrice
Brynn
Celine
Caroline
Charlotte
Claire
Daphne
Gwen
Heidi
Ingrid
Jane
Judith
Lauren
Lynn
Naomi
Pauline
Rachel
Rose
Ruth
Suzanne
Simone
Vivian

Do you think any of the above fit particularly well with Elizabeth? What other names would you suggest to Jill?

  1. Elizabeth is one of those names where most anything fits. I like to call it a ‘buffer name.’ Here are a few suggestions for first names:

    Grace
    Sabrina
    Sydney
    Christina
    Ashley
    Sasha
    Autumn
    Gabrielle
    Jessica
    Chelsea

    Good luck! Hope this helps!

  2. I think Elizabeth goes with just about any girl’s name and adds a classiness to the entire name. In my family we have daughter Jennifer Elizabeth, her daughter Miranda Elizabeth and granddaughter Emma Elizabeth.

  3. Although it’s very traditional, I happen to like the combination ‘Mary Elizabeth’. I see you were discouraged from ‘M’ names because of the monogram M.E.H. But that isn’t so bad is it? If anything, the reference you cited is indifferent, but not negative. In at least one language (Thai), ‘Meh’ is close to the sound of the word meaning ‘mother’, because it also resembles a baby’s cry. But I digress. Some more possibilities:

    Matilda
    Katelyn
    Claudine
    Jacquelyn
    Florence
    Franchesca
    Emmaline
    Maureen
