My husband and I are expecting our second daughter on October 21, and we are having a really hard time with the name. After months and months of discussions (or arguments...whatever), we agree on Grace for a first name. Our last name is one syllable and ends with "lyn". Our other daughter's name is Abigail Marie, and we call her Abby.
Middle names we have rejected, even though we like them a lot:
Evelyn (too rhymey with our last name)
Amelia (don't like the initials)
Since Grace and our last name are pretty short, I think the middle name should be at least two syllables.
What do you think? Any and all help appreciated!
I love the rhythm of Grace Amelia with a one-syllable surname. If you love it except for the initials problem, you could use Emelia. Some more combinations with a similar four-syllable rhythm:
And here are a few 3-syllable options:
More options, everyone!
