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.
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:
FelixMy cherished daughter, Rowan Jane. ~b. 10/2011~
Sawyer ~ Aven ~ Elowen ~ Sage ~ Eilonwy ~ Eleanor
Morgan ~ Asher ~ ___ ~ ___ ~ Currently trying to fill the blanks...
Trying for #2 in January 2014.

I really like the suggestion of Claire and Kate for you. Both classic, strong and not frilly.
Other one syllable names:
Sol - Goddess of the sun.
Tess - I especially like this, maybe because I immediately think of Tess of the d'Urbervilles, and with Jane I think of Jane Eyre.
Other non one syllable names:
VioletMy darling Roo, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014

I like all of our current middle name options except for Frances, and LOVE short strong girls names, so here we go: Beth / Bethan, Eve, Belle / Bella, Anya, Annie, Ember, Gina, Kay, Rae, Rachel, Scout, Sky(e), Brook(e), Ocean, Etta, Olive, Kimber, Leigh, Luce, Luna, Mary / Marie, Max / Maxine / Maxie, Tasha, Onyx? Hope these have given you some ideasCurrent Loves: Tobias Henry and Sebastian Keith
