    Bethany Hildegarde

    In the time since my last thread about Hildegarde, I have realized I could never use it as a first name. Ever. Not even on this hypothetical girl who seems to have come into existence with the name! But as a middle? Who knows... How often are middle names used? Not a lot, so I started playing around with cool first names for Hildegarde. I came up with a lot, none (in my opinion) are 'clunky cool' like Hildegarde, but they sound good with it. My favorite is Bethany Hildegarde, what do you think? The others include:
    Isobel Hildegarde
    Isabeau Hildegarde (guilty pleasure!)
    Anais Hildegarde
    Acacia Hildegarde
    Azalea Hildegarde
    Fiona Hildegarde
    Vivienne Hildegarde (spelling?)
    Felicity Hildegarde
    Sofia Hildegarde
    Amelia Hildegarde

    But I keep coming back to Bethany! Do you have any opinions, suggestions?
    Thanks!

    Isobel, Isabeau, Azalea & Acacia are my favorites with Hildegarde. Bethany doesn't do it for me with Hildegarde. For me it pairs best with names with a lot of glamor and sparkle. Bethany is more of a quiet beauty to me.

    Anais Hildegarde and Sofia Hildegarde sound best to me - they're equally quirky-'European' as Hildegarde, but are glamorous and light-hearted enough to even out it's clunky factor. They sound like old-Hollywood stars or something.
    These have a similar feel -

    Flora Hildegarde
    Martha Hildegarde
    Anya Hildegarde
    Sylvie Hildegarde
    Rosa Hildegarde
    Leone Hildeharde
    Etta Hildegarde
    Viola Hildegarde
    Eva Hildegarde

    I'm definitely not psyched about Bethany Hildegarde. Together it's rather boring and doesn't match in style. I'd have to agree with previous posters that Hildegarde needs to be paired with something that has more spark, preferably something with a light and pretty sound.

    My favourites from your list:
    Isabeau Hildegarde
    Anais Hildegarde
    Fiona Hildegarde
    Amelia Hildegarde
