Need the perfect middle name for Arabella (nickname "Bella") that will be used a lot.
My older daughter is named Katelyn Rose and we always call her "Katie Rose". For this baby (due in October) we have settled on the name Arabella, but will most likely be calling her Bella and I want to find a middle name that sounds great saying it together with Bella but I am stumped! I have friends with two daughters named Alexis Katherine (nickname is Ali Kat) and the other daughter is Samantha Josephine (nickname Sammie Jo) I absolutley LOVE the idea of longer first and middle names with matching nicknames like that. So I am looking for either a short middle name that goes well with Bella or a longer middle name that can be shortened into a nickname that goes well with Bella. It will be something we use often and call her everyday. Hopefully that makes sense! Thank you SO much for any suggestions!

Cute idea! I'd go shorter with Arabella, myself, but a lot depends on the length of your last name.
So, for something short, you might try:
Arabella Faith - Bella Faith, Bella Fae
Arabella Faye - Bella Faye
Arabella Grace - Bella Grace, Bella Gray
Arabella Greer - Bella Greer - This isn't as cute as I think you want...
Arabella Jane - Bella Jane
Arabella June - Bella June
Arabella Maeve - Bella Maeve, Bella Mae
Arabella May - Bella May
Arabella Pearl - Bella Pearl
Arabella Ruth - Bella Ruth, Bella Rue
Arabella Sage - Bella Sage
Or, for something a little longer, you might try:
Arabella Beatrix or Arabella Beatrice - Bella Bea, or Bebe (or, for Arabella Beatrix, she could be Bella Trix!)
Arabella Dorothy - Bella Dot
Arabella Gwendolyn - Bella Gwen
Arabella Juliet - Bella Jules, Bella Jet
Arabella Jessamine - Bella Jess
Arabella Junia - Bella June
Arabella Marie - Bella Mae
Arabella Margaret - Bella Meg
Arabella Natalie - Bella Nat
Arabella Phoebe - Bella Bee, or Bebe
Arabella Rachel - Bella Rae
Arabella Vivienne - Bella Viv
Best of luck!
