Middle name for Tess?

After much arguing and deliberating and with a week to go, we have a boys name, but the girls name is proving more tricky. We are both mostly agreed on Tess, but need to find a middle name. Our surname has 2 syllables, so I think the middle name has to have 3. All we've come up with so far is Tess Matilda Surname. Any other suggestions? Maybe we could bung an extra name in to help the flow?! (Matilda is my DH's grans middle name btw)

Thank you!

I think Tess Matilda is lovely (espec as your DH's grans name).
I think Tess Elizabeth sound nice together too, or Tess Olivia smile

My DD is Tess, and her middle name is Mary after my Gran. I really like Tess Matilda.

We had this problem too. I quite like Matilda, but Tess Matilda makes me think of Esmerelda! We decided on Elizabeth (my middle name and both my and dh's grandmas' name) but turned it around so it's Elizabeth Tess Surname (also 2 syllables), but she always gets called Tess.

Ha ha Tickle! We only realised this with our Tess a few weeks ago...
