My husband and I are expecting our first daughter in September. We have a small list of names we can agree on and I don't want a name that is super common. Our choices so far are Tessa, Campbell, and Lyla. I am starting to think of potential middle names but am having a tough time. I would like to honor my grandmother Margaret but am not loving how it sounds with our first names. I am open to any middle name suggestions or even first name suggestions that sounds good with Margaret. Thank your for your suggestions!
I think Lyla Margaret sounds quite lovely :-)
I like Tessa Margaret. I feel like the names balance each other well.
My favourite from your three is Lyla, I think Lyla Margaret sounds fine, I also like Lyra, Kyra, Lola, and Lila(h) which have similar sounds. I prefer Jessa over Tessa and dislike Campbell altogether. Some other first name suggestions: Bellamy, Everly, Eve, Justine, Hettie, Willa, Quinna, Olive, Franka, Bennie, Victorie? Also if you are really unsettled with Margaret you may be included to use a varient such as: Maggie / Mags, Meggie / Meg, Greta, Margo(t), and Mairead. :)
Since Margaret has a meaning of Pearl, you could use that instead of Margaret.
Tessa Pearl is very nice, I think :) I'm not a huge fan of Campbell, and Lyla Pearl also is nice!
There are TONS of different names you could use for Margaret without using that exact name. I think you can stick with the first names you love :)
Tessa Margaret or Lyla Margaret sound lovely to me. Not a fan of Campbell — it looks trendy and I would avoid it unless it was an actual family name.
I wonder if you would like Daisy or Pearl — the meanings of the name Margaret. They would make great first or middle names.
Alternatives to honour a Margaret:
- Marjorie / Margery
- Margot / Margaux
- Magdalen / Magdalena / Magnolia "Maggie"
