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 Rachel is having her first baby and needs a few middle name suggestions.
She and her husband have narrowed the first names down to Evie, Vivienne or Kiki for a girl and Milo or Max for a boy. The surname will start with an L, and end with a Y, and contain 2 syllables (with a stress on the first).
Rachel also mentions that, while she loves the name Kiki, the combination of Kiki and her surname
sounds like some kind of spicy food, “a portion of Kiki Lxxxxy please!”
Kiki is definitely an interesting pick. :) I have to admit, I don’t see it come up as a first name choice very often…especially next to a name like Vivienne.
Here are some ideas I came up with for middles:
Do you think any of the above work especially well?
What other middle names would you suggest to Rachel?
