    Strong & Feminine Middle Options Needed!

    As everyone probably knows, I like androgynous and even "male" names for girls. But, I do want an obviously feminine middle name (like Jane) for another daughter. My guidelines: Can't be overly frilly, must have a deep history and a "strong" vibe, not too long (3 syllables would be pushing it,) not too common or a "filler" middle like Grace or Elizabeth.

    Bonus points if it has a botanical or watery meaning/background.

    Current contenders:

    Faye
    Cora
    Alys (Alice)
    Frances
    Florence
    Flora
    Cordelia
    Eleanor

    I've noticed that 1 syllable middles sound the best with most of my first name options, but I can't seem to find any I like. Our last name is 3 syllables and flows like "Anderson" and it's hard to find middles that don't run into it.

    First name options for a daughter just for a reminder:

    Sawyer
    Merit
    Asher
    Silas
    Felix
    My cherished daughter, Rowan Jane. ~b. 10/2011~
