A reader named Nita is having a baby girl. The baby’s first name will be Leah, and Nita is looking for middle name suggestions that work with Leah. She writes:
We want it to start with a consonant and end in a consonant. Since the first name is pretty short, we’d like the middle name to be three or four syllables long. And please, not floral names. (And no names that sound like Beatrice/Beatrix, Margaret or Ursula.)
I think French names are a smart place to start, as many French names are fairly long and begin and end with consonant sounds.
Here are some other possibilities:
Which of the above do you like best with Leah? What other middle names can you come up with for Nita?
A reader named Amy needs a bit of assistance:
Our third child, a baby girl, is due in two weeks and we are having trouble finalizing her name. The first name will be Alice. Would you please suggest unpopular yet interesting middles names that would compliment a French surname?
(The surname has two syllables–stress on the second syllable–and starts with the letter L.)
The baby is due in a matter of days…but I’m swamped with work and don’t have time to really mull over name suggestions like I normally do. So the list below is the product of a quick brainstorm…
I’ll do my best to come up with other (better?) suggestions over the next few days and post them in the comments.
In the meanwhile, what other unpopular-yet-interesting names do you think could work with Alice?
Update, 6/03 – Alice is here! Scroll down to the final comment to find out what her middle name is…
