Middle name for Faye...
We are will be naming our third child (due Dec 15) after a recently deceased family member whose name begins with "F".
Last name is 1 syllable, sounds like Batch, but with a "V".
Older brothers are Alexander and Oliver.
We have settle on the boy name - Frederick Charles.
We are having trouble finding a good middle for our girl name, Faye. We are not so into the 1 syllable first and last, but is is important to honour this lovely lady as directly as possible.
If we were not naming for anyone, she would be Violet or Beatrice.
Our current options:
Faye Juniper (can also honour another family member, June)
Faye Clementine (guilty pleasure)
Faye Gemma (another direct honour name)
Faye Eloise (love, but too popular here to use as a first name)
What are your favourites and do you have any other suggestions?
Welcome to Nameberry! I think Faye Eloise is beautiful. You may want to consider a double-barrel first name to break the single-syllable flow of the first and last names. You could make a hyphenated name easily out of any of the names listed above, or you could add some new names in:
Faye-Rosa Eloise Batch
Faye-Ellen Cecily Batch
Faye-Jeanette Cecily Batch
Josie-Faye Juniper Batch
Mira-Faye Juniper Batch
Mila-Faye Juniper Batch
Lyla-Faye Juniper Batch
Mary-Faye Clementine Batch
I like the idea of a double-barrel, Alzora!
I would like to keep the first name as just Faye, but I would consider names like:
Faye Elizabeth called Faye-Beth
Faye Annabelle called Faye-Belle
Hmm...I'll get working on some more options like those!
I think Faye Clementine is beautiful! I normally like Faye first names to be followed by a vowel starting middle name like Faye Eloise (very beautiful choice!) but I think Faye Clementine is perfect! It just... works.
I like Faye Cecily. I love Cecily.
I like Faye Eloise but I do prefer Violet with Alexander and Oliver.
Faye Beatrice and Faye Violet are both really pretty.
My youngest daughter is Margot Cecily, so I have a bias there but when I say it out loud, Faye Cecily + your last name sounds really lovely. Faye Acacia is pretty as well.
