    Red face Vintage/classic names ----need help with mn

    I love the name Alma (I'm aware that it is a bit old-fashioned, but I think it is sweet). I am still looking for a middle name. The last name is short and begins with an S.
    So far, I have
    Alma Elenora or Alma Elinor
    Alma Nora
    Alma Miriam
    Alma Harriet
    Alma Norabel
    Alma Nola

    Any thoughts, suggestions would be appreciated. You can also let me know how you feel about the name Alma.
    Thanks.

    I have a wonderful Aunt Alma, who is my mother's oldest sister. With such a positive association, just hearing or seeing the name makes me smile. It is a sweet name like you said.

    From your list of middle name, I like Elenora and Theodora best. I do think a more mainstream middle name may be preferable though.

    I like:

    Alma Charlotte
    Alma Catherine
    Alma Violet
    Alma Christine
    Alma Elizabeth
    Alma Claire
    Alma Genevieve

    The first four on the list are my favorites.

    Mother of three teenagers: (1) Daniel Glen, (2) Timothy Austin, and (3) Rebecca Jane... all middle names honor family... 3rd generation mn Jane. (A second girl would have been Susanna Eve and a third boy, maybe Isaac...)

    Alma Eleanora- Love!
    Alma Nora or Alma Nora Lillian- I think both combos lack flow
    Alma Woods-too masculine
    Alma Theodora-like
    Alma Norabel-like & different

    Darcy Adeline ~~ Oliver Dayton Ellis ~~ Jonah Tobias Clarke

    Blessed to be a mother of 3

    I'm not a big fan or first & middle names ending in the same letters. I do like Alma Norabel.

    Alma Lucille is lovely. I do also like Alma Wendy. It sounds like a child born in the 50's Alma Jeanette is also great! Good luck on your name hunt!
    Girls:
    Brenna, Coraline, Cordelia, Elodie, Francesca, Gianna, Helena, Ingrid, Margaret, Marilyn
