    You could also go with names that mean adored or beloved, as that's what she'll be.

    examples:
    Darla
    Adora
    Eudora (means excellent gift)
    Imogen
    Thea
    Theadora

    I am LOVING these suggestions!

    We may even narrow it down to 2-3 and let the little girl have the final say.

    She is Hispanic.

    I was daydreaming today and thought of Caryn (a mix between Karen, my MIL, and Carolyn, my mother). too trendy? I don't know. Now that I see it written I'm not in love..

    I haven't thought of linking it with Elijah's mn. That's a cute idea and gives them a unique bond.

    My very favorite story in the Bible is Hannah's story. My husband and I have struggled with infertility for years, and we have read and prayed over II Samuel countless times.

    I like the idea of Myriam because of the meaning and similarity with Myles. but it doesn't have a good flow with her fn.

    When things get further along with the process, I can actually share her name. Thanks for helping me out so much, especially with little to go on. Y'all are the best!

    I think it's so great that you're adopting an older child! They often get left in foster care, which is really sad.

    It would be very sweet to link her middle name with your son's. I like the suggestion of Myriam, which also means wished-for-child. It's a shame that it doesn't flow well with her first name, but maybe you could use it anyway? Or have it be a second middle name, so the flow would be better?

    I also like the idea of Hannah, because the story means so much to you and your husband. It would be a great thing to tell your daughter. Rachel and Sarah also struggled with infertility in the Bible, so those could work too.

    I don't really like Caryn. It's meaningful, but it looks trendy, and you hear Karen, without any apparent Carolyn.

    Congratulations on your daughter and best of luck!

    I just went through this whole process of chosing middles for our daughter we are adopting. I went back and forth forever on chosing a family name versus a name to link her to me or her brother. In the end I picked a double middle ( like her brother) Belle ( she's beautiful!) and Violet as I have a color name too. From your names Carolyn, Elizabeth and Ann are classics that you couldn't go wrong with. Good luck!

    We're excited at the possibility of adopting an older child too, Aster. Yeah, I'm over Caryn. Too trendy and I have to explain that my mom's name is mixed in there. Meh.

    I do like the idea of Myriam and adding another middle name to help it flow...


    Congrats on adopting your daughter, goodkarmavt! What a blessing! I love the middle names you chose for your little girl
