    Thought on Gianna?

    Opinions? Siblings will be Avery Charles, Henry Eli, Maeve Charlotte & Franklin Quinn "Frankie". Frankie & Gianna will be twins. Middle name suggestions for Gianna?
    Mama to Avery Charles, Henry Eli & Maeve Charlotte

    I love Gianna myself but I never seem to find anyone else to like it. I don't know that is an ideal match for your sibset, I think Anna would probably match better but if you love it go for it. I think Gianna has a lot of fun and spunk

    I agree with Lindsay that Gianna stylistically isn't a great match for Henry, Avery, Maeve, and Frankie. I think Georgiana or Giovanna would match a bit better, and you could still use Gianna as a nn. Gianna isn't much to my taste--the proper Italian way never really gets said, but jee-ah-nah doesn't really sound like a proper name to me, either. I love the full Giovanna, though, and even the P&P inspired Georgiana! I think Georgiana would be lovely with your other children, personally, especially Maeve. Maeve and Georgiana are stunning together.

    If Gianna's what you love, though, I think something like Gianna Madeline or Gianna Elise might be to your taste?

    Good luck!

    I like the name Gianna and know several little girls with that name, one called Gigi. The other mom requests the name be pronounced "jah-nah" and uses the full name.

    That said, it just doesn't seem to fit with the other names. I do like Lydia and Julia from your signature list though.

    If you really love Gianna though, go for it.

    Gianna Rose would be pretty!

    By the way, I love Franklin Quinn!

    I agree with this. It especially sounds completely different than Franklin.
