MN for Eliana?
I'm going to have a new member of the family soon, and the parents are having trouble finding a middle for Eliana. LN is 1-syllable. Any suggestions?
Names currently in the running are:
They aren't exactly berries, and they have no real preferences, and no real turn-offs, so practically anything goes.
Both Claire and Naomi are lovely names. Since the last name is short, Eliana Naomi might have better flow, with 4-3-1 rhythm. However, I know some people will find the -na at the end of Eliana and the Na- at the beginning of Naomi discordant. I personally think it's fine especially since the A sound is different. Claire does not have that issue but may sound short with the last name. They've done well with neither starting with a vowel or ending with -a, since that might bump or sound matchy-matchy with Eliana. Working off of Claire and Naomi, a few suggestions that come to mind are:
I think Claire flows a little better. Having a fn-mn of 4-3 seems like a lot. If they don't find it too rhymey, would they consider Clara as a middle name?
Thank you for all the suggestions! I'm going to relay them as soon as I can, and I'll tell you if they like any of them. Please keep it coming though!
I like Claire and Danielle :D <3 i hope you pick one of those!! will ya post what the middle name is please
It looks like they'll be choosing (dun dun dun) Avery. Thanks for all the suggestions, and I'll let you know if there are any changes!
