Which Catherine combo?
I'm down to seven Catherine combos I really love--Catherine Eliora is set, but I need the second MN. Catherine's already in honor of my mom (and two other wonderful ladies in my family), so I'm not so fussed about using a second family name, but I'm not opposed to it.
Many of these I just like with Catherine Eliora, but Pearl and Ruby are in honor of family, and Fleur is in honor of my best friend who passed away nearly a year and a half ago.
Catherine Eliora Fleur
Catherine Eliora Grier
Catherine Eliora Lou
Catherine Eliora Lux
Catherine Eliora Pearl
Catherine Eliora Ruby
Catherine Eliora Zoe
My top three:
Catherine Eliora Lou for its utter cuteness and adorability
Catherine Eliora Fleur for your friend, and it is beautiful
Catherine Eliora Lux for the double light meaning
Of the three names that honour someone, I like Fleur the best. I also like Pearl a lot.
I love Eliora as a first mn.
Catherine Eliora Grier is my favorite followed by
Catherine Eliora Fleur.
I love that Eliora Grier could pass as it's own name.
This is something that my middle names do as well and I've always considered that a really cool thing.
Especially since I have always been into theatre, film, and writing. I feel like it could work as a stage or pen name and with our highly publicised online lives I think this could be a really great asset.
Catherine Eliora Fleur is simply beautiful, I like that it honors your friend, too.
The Pearl combo is my favorite!!
I LOVE the Grier combo; it lends a certain je ne sais quoi to the name. If you were a friend, I would push for that :)
I also like Ruby, and Pearl is okay, but honestly the rest don't sit right. With Eliora, Lou and Lux feel like too much "L" (and I'm not a fan of Lux in general), the rhythm with Zoe feels off, and Fleur doesn't seem right (this would depend on surname I'm sure) BUT the meaning to you is so lovely.
In the end, people don't use their middle names - much less second middles - much AT ALL, so I would suggest you go with whatever holds the most meaning for you and/or your partner.
Fleur. Catherine Eliora Fleur is stunning, my favourite from your top 12 so far. :)
Catherine is the name I always love, but maybe I can never use. Eliora is so pretty and has a great meaning. And I always, always adore Fleur since I read HP 4.
Catherine Eliora Lou- sounds very cute
Catherine Eliora Lux- Lux is another name I always want to use.
