    1-2 syllable middles for Aurora?

    Aurora has been on and off my list for a while now, but I keep coming back to it, inspired by the beautiful Northern Lights.

    The problem is finding a middle name that fits without being R-heavy or too hippie-ish (Ex: Aurora Skye). Here is my short list... I'd appreciate feedback and suggestions! (Our last name is 3 syllables and begins with B, so a 1-2 syllable name would fit best.)

    Aurora Blythe
    Aurora Maeve
    Aurora Pearl (too R-heavy?)
    Aurora Beatrix (is Beatrix pronounced Bea-trix or Be-a-trix? If it's 3 syllables it won't work for us.)
    Aurora Plum (total GP name for me, I'd probably never really use it... I can't picture an angst-ridden teenager with such a sugary name, lol)

    ETA: Aurora Violet (forgot this one when I initially posted, but again I wonder if it is in that "hippy-dippy" range?)

    We can't use middles such as June, Mae, etc for various reasons, and I don't like Grace or Rose (which are R-heavy besides). I'm also not interested in borrowing names from our family tree as it's not my style and I don't want DS to feel left out since neither his first nor middle name honor anyone in our families.

    Any other suggestions are much appreciated =)
