Middle name help?

Looking for inspiration for a middle name. We've decided on the first name (Kirsi- it's Finnish, I'm Finnish) but need help on the second name.

Because DH was raised in England (though he's Swedish, and we now live in Stockholm) we use English names, just as we use Finnish first names for me.

Which do you like most-
Kirsi Eleanor
Kirsi Elizabeth
Kirsi Elenora
Kirsi Isabelle
Kirsi Jemima
Kirsi Annabelle
Kirsi Coraline
Kirsi Marissa

Which do you like?

Coraline gets my vote smile

All the names are nice. How do you pronounce Kirsi?

I like Elizabeth

If it's 'Cur - sea' then I think it sounds nicest with the three syllable names. So:


But then I suppose it depends on how you'll pronounce those too!

My favourites are Marissa, Annabelle, Isabelle and Coraline.

Marissa. I love the name Kirsi. Have a nice Finnish colleague Kirsi.

Yes, it's Cur-sea, but there are a few variants (I knew someone with the name, ages ago, who pronounced it 'Kerrz-i). I think my favourites are Kirsi Coraline (though the similar sounds at the start might sound odd?) or Kirsi Annabelle, or Kirsi Marissa.

All of those are lovely. Not very helpful, sorry grin

Another vote for Kirsi Annabelle.

Kirsi Marissa

I love Coraline, but I don't think it goes with Kirsi, sorry. But then I am not a fan of alliteration in names. Of your favourites, my vote would be Annabelle. I agree it sounds nicest with the longer middle names.

Kirsi is really nice.

I think Marissa sounds the best.

Isabelle, Annabelle, marissa and Coraline sound best to my ears...
