Mercy’s middle name

57 replies

Spookypig · 19/11/2022 18:46

One of my favourite names, firmly on the list of potential names (I know it’s not popular on MN but we love it for personal reasons).

We have a few middle name ideas but wanted some ideas about what middle names you think sound beautiful with Mercy?

Thank you!

I'm not a big fan of virtue names. But I think these sound good:
Mercy Catherine
Mercy Elizabeth
Mercy Harriet
Mercy Eleanor
Mercy Susannah
Mercy Rebecca
Mercy Henrietta
Mercy Francesca
Fwiw I think you need quite a traditional middle name.

Mercy Mae
Mercy Lou
Mercy Jane

LOVE Mercy and DS would have this name if a girl. DS's name is universally hated by MN too, but you only have to look at the Style & Beauty section to see most MN have no taste Wink

Is it Percy? Grin

Could you make it her middle name instead? I'm not sure nouns are ever good names especially when they are associated with a particular behavioural characteristic.
If not, it needs to be something short - Ann, May, Rae.

Hope, Patience, Charity - lots of virtue names are popular. I think Mercy is great.

it's two very different names that compliment each other

Thank you so much for the ideas! The final list (we think) is:

Mercy Jemima (just love Jemima and was also on our list)
Mercy Victoria (DH’s mum isn’t English and has a very dated name in their own culture, but the meaning is the same as Victoria, and she loves the name Victoria and said we should name a future baby Victoria after her! She was joking but she’d be really happy if we actually used this, and I do think it’s lovely!)
Mercy Kate (My beloved granny’s middle name which my grandpa used to call her. I didn’t even think of using this until I saw the comments suggesting Kate and thought it a) sounded lovely and b) would be lovely for my granny and my dad, who would understand the significance)
Mercy Anneliese (Anneliese is DH’s all time favourite name)

What do you prefer from this list?

Also, if we used Kate it would be nice to also use Victoria and vice versa, so we could have a name from both sides of the family. Do you think Mercy Kate Victoria would be better if we decided to do this? Or Mercy Victoria Kate? Or is it too much with both names?

Also love the sound of Mercy Florence and Mercy Juliet. Any thoughts about these?

Love the name Florence with it.

Go with what you love.

Mercy Victoria Anneliese sounds lovely imo.
