    MN for Eliana?

    I'm going to have a new member of the family soon, and the parents are having trouble finding a middle for Eliana. LN is 1-syllable. Any suggestions?

    Names currently in the running are:
    Claire
    Naomi

    They aren't exactly berries, and they have no real preferences, and no real turn-offs, so practically anything goes.
    Hannah, 16. Teenberry, story writer, story reader, Gryffindor, human rights activist, and name nerd since 10.

    Both Claire and Naomi are lovely names. Since the last name is short, Eliana Naomi might have better flow, with 4-3-1 rhythm. However, I know some people will find the -na at the end of Eliana and the Na- at the beginning of Naomi discordant. I personally think it's fine especially since the A sound is different. Claire does not have that issue but may sound short with the last name. They've done well with neither starting with a vowel or ending with -a, since that might bump or sound matchy-matchy with Eliana. Working off of Claire and Naomi, a few suggestions that come to mind are:

    Eliana Chloe
    Eliana Clarice
    Eliana Cleo
    Eliana Damaris
    Eliana Jacqueline
    Eliana Josephine
    Eliana Madeleine
    Eliana Mirabelle
    Eliana Mireille
    Eliana Miriam
    Eliana Simone
    Eliana Sophie
    Eliana Tamar

    I think Claire flows a little better. Having a fn-mn of 4-3 seems like a lot. If they don't find it too rhymey, would they consider Clara as a middle name?
    Boys: Maxwell, Bennett, Oliver, Elliott and Archer.

    Girls: Rose, Juliet, Aria, Cora and Scarlett


    Sorry for any random spellings. I'm probably on my nook!
