Whimsical Middles - What's one you'd consider? Have you heard any IRL?
What is a whimsical middle name to you? What is a whimsical middle name you have heard used in real life? Is there one(s?) that you've considered using? Did you use a whimsical middle name? How have people reacted? Do you wish you had used one? Do you have one? Do you like it? What would you consider a good example of a whimsical middle name?

I used to want to use hippie middle names for my kids like Sunshine. But, then I didn't because it was too reminiscent of my childhood. My parents gave us ridiculous names growing up.“If you're going to say what you want to say, you're going hear what you don't want to hear.”

My whole name is Sorrel Fey de Danann Watts which is pretty full on... My daughter's name is Iris Ophelia. I really wanted to call her Ophelia as her fn but I was worried it would be too much and it kind of sounds like "I feel ya!" in a strong Aussie accent too, but I still wish I'd been more adventurous sometimes even though Iris really suits her. For next one I'm thinking of using Peregrine as the fn with Penn as a nn for a boy, still looking into girls names.Long time name lover...

I adore whimsical names. My children will, without a doubt, be "saddled" with them first and middle. It's not because I set out for the names to be that way but because I love the names on their own. English gardens, brittle maps, early mornings, and fine lace are loves of mine. It's a part of life.
For instance, when it comes to my own list:
I happen to like Lila, but I love Lilac.
Delphine is nice but Delphie makes me smile.
Daphne is cool, but Daffodil is the embodiment of spring for me.☼ Patricia
