Middle girls name help please - with limited criteria
26

paintfairy · 07/05/2022 11:21

Ok, so I need a middle girls name. Unhelpfully our surname doesn't work with things. So my criteria is this:

One or two syllables
Cannot begin with a J, A, or R
Cannot end with an 'A' sound or an 'E' sound (so no names ending in ie or ey).
Nothing with a strong 'L' sound in the middle. (Eg Belle)

Some examples of what will work:
Grace
Florence
Faith
Evelyn
Charlotte
Violet

but I'm not sold on any of those! Help?

Do you 'need' one at all, with trying to find a name to fit your limited criteria it seems maybe the answer is not to try so hard?

Yes, as the right name will make the first name flow better. Whilst we'll get away with using it with our surname, the right middle name will make it sound much more right. I also like middle names.

Thanks everyone! Quite a few to go at there. Some I definitely hadn't thought of.
