    Middle name for Lucienne

    I asked about Lucienne a few days ago and got a lot of positive feedback, which made me love the name even more. Now I just need to find a middle name I like for it. I think something short, sweet, and girly would be good. Lucienne Poppy came to mind, which I like but would love to hear some more ideas. Any ideas of what you think would be good with Lucienne? Thanks!

    I love Lucienne! I, too, was wondering how the general population would pronounce it.....would they pronounce it correctly or butcher it?!

    I like Corinne, and Blade offered the combination: Lucienne Corinne, which i think is beautiful, sophisticated, and classy.
    Do you prefer a nature/whimsical name (that's how i see 'Poppy)?

    It's not a hard and fast rule, but since Lucienne places its stress on the very end of the word (the -ENNE syllable), if you pair it with a middle name which stresses the first syllable, it makes the flow very choppy. Lucienne Poppy does just that (lu-ci-ENNE POP-py).

    I did suggest Corinne and it's a beautiful, elegant name but I think it's too much -NNE for one name.

    For the best flow, many of the -elle names work really well:

    Brielle
    Janelle
    Danielle
    Gisele
    Joelle
    Noelle
    Rachelle

    Likewise the -ette names:

    Colette
    Amoret
    Josette

    Or French names in general:

    Celine
    Celeste
    Sandrine
    Delphine
    Justine
    Elaine
    Francine
    Yasmeen
    Yvaine
    Maxine

    If you want another 3-syllable middle, most of the ones ending with -a will stress the second syllable, not the first:

    Alana
    Annora
    Aurora
    Calandra (means 'lark' in Greek)
    Calantha (means 'beautiful flower')
    Camilla
    Christina
    Fiona
    Gianna
    Michaela
    Milena
    Nerissa
    Paloma
    Renata
    Rosanna
    Sabrina
    Sedona
    Selena
    Sophia
    Zahara
    Blade, MD

    XY: Antoine Raphael (3.1.2012)
    XX: Cassia Viviane Noor (11.30.2013)

    I like blade's suggestion of usine elle middle names, of that list the ones I think sound great at Lucienne Rachelle, Lucienne Joelle, and Lucienne Danielle.
