Sure. Just about anything works as a middle name. I've always liked Drew, too.
My favorites are Siena, Skye, and Savannah for girls and Memphis for boys.
There are a bunch of others that are technically place names, such as Virginia and Adelaide, but I don't like to include...

Cora Elizabeth, for its sweet simplicity.
If I could mix things up a bit, I love Declan Alexander. If the combos are set in stone, I pick Declan Scott.

Most favorite: Olympia, with Millicent as a close second.
Least favorite: Lilith. I also dislike Birdie as a given name, but it's an adorable nickname.
I like both the Siena and Sienna spellings, but only Vienna.
Siena is gorgeous and gets my vote.Vienna brings those yucky canned sausages to mind.

Such sad news. She was a special lady, and she will be missed.
My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
I adopted a six-month-old pup whose name was a slang term for an erection. I didn't care that he recognized it as his name...I wasn't about to yell that across a dog park! I simply started using...

Oh, my goodness, how awful. I will keep her in my prayers.
I'm loving Ewan/Euan right now. It's weird because I used to flat out dislike it. I don't know what changed.
If you're feeling overwhelmed, waiting until you know the genders would probably cut way down on your naming stress and still give you plenty of time to decide. Do what feels right for you.
Jo, because I immediately think of Jo Marsh from Little Women.
My first thought was Ivy, but here's a few more:
Freya Lily is my favorite, but Phoebe Grace is a close second.
We have an Alaric at my son's school, and he's AL-uh-rik, the pronunciation I think you don't want. (First syllable emphasized and sounding like Alison or Alan, and a soft, short "uh" in the middle.)...

Before I became pregnant, I was convinced no name in the Top 100 would do. None of the names I had picked out in advance felt right for him, though, and the only one that really did was a Top 30...

It doesn't bother me at all. Obviously, I'm not going to use names that have already been used by friends, family, and close co-workers, but my grandma's friend's nieces and other Internet...
The only ones I can think of are Quinn and Cary/Carrie. I tend to have a strong gender preference for unisex names.
My son would probably be an Alexander, after my mom, if not for my -er ending last name.

He never wanted more than 2. I always pictured myself having 2-3.
It sounds like we should be in agreement, but...not so much. Since he came into our relationship with 2 from his first marriage,...

I like Douglas, Forrest, and Micah for girls and Cary, Kelly, and Greer for boys.
I suppose Cary, Kelly, and Greer are already considered unisex, but there are names that are unisex in theory and...
My favorite is Libby, followed by Elle. Lily isn't my favorite Elizabeth nickname, but I think it's less of a stretch than Bea.

Siena / Sienna
The namenerd in me can come up with a whole list of reasons to not like it, but my heart doesn't care one bit. I think it's beautiful.
Eta: Oh, and I like Brooke too. There's a...
Eleanor. So strong and beautiful.
Helena (if it's HEL-en-a) is lovely too, but its ambiguous pronunciation is a turn-off.
