I'm looking for 1 syllable girls names. Have agreed on first name but cant find a middle name we both like. Any sugguestions would be great. Neither of us want Eve, May, Grace as find them very common although lovely names.

meditrina Sun 12-Jun-11 09:01:21

Jane, Jean, Hope, Rose, Anne, Sian, Gwen, Kay, Elle, Belle?

shelleylou Sun 12-Jun-11 09:02:44

I keep coming back to rose although DP isn't keen on it. I forgot to mention due to first name it cant have a long E sound.

shelleylou Sun 12-Jun-11 09:03:17

Do like sian will suggest it to dp later.

Do you want something that is definitely a free-standing name, or is a shortened version OK?

Some more suggestions: Pearl, Nell, Claire, Joy, Liese, Joan, Faith, Joyce, Skye?

Ilovemyscrumples Sun 12-Jun-11 09:58:37

Faye, Leigh, Brooke, Paige, Claire, Lynn, Faith, Ruth, Jade, Joy, Skye.

We might need to hear the first name to make sure the middle name sounds OK.

Anne, Bea, Niamh, Jo

Woohoo some ideas i havent thought of. I dont mind if its a free-standing name or a shortened version as long as it sounds right IYKWIM. The name is Destinee which has a lot of meaning for me and I love it. Just really awkward to find a middle name that sounds right.

manicinsomniac Sun 12-Jun-11 11:46:29

I do think Rose sounds the best with Destinee actually.

Faye and Anne sound okay.

Faith and Hope go quite well but the meaning starts to sound a bit OTT doesn't it!

meditrina Sun 12-Jun-11 11:51:02

I agree, the "virtue" names don't work, and the very solid (IYSWIM) names don't either.

Claire, Faye and Anne might work.

shelleylou Sun 12-Jun-11 11:52:04

Glad its not just me that thought Rose went well. I love Paige but need to convince DP on either of them lol.
yes it does get a bit OTT with Hope or Faith. Its a really awkward name to find one went on name geneie for ideas and it came up with Diamond as a middle name i immediately thougth stripper lol.

MelinaM Sun 12-Jun-11 22:31:38

Can be pronounced Loordz or Loor-dessmile

shelleylou Mon 13-Jun-11 16:04:55

Thank you for all of your sugguestions will run them past DP later and hope we can agree on something. I'd rather it have a middle name. Firdt and surname means we should try to keep to a shorter middle name.. It just cuts possibilities down a lot more
