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
    I only like Merit Flora. Or Merit Alice, but not as much as Flora.
    Sorry for bad English, I am from other country

    I do like Pearl, but I worry it's becoming a "filler/trendy" type middle because of all the recent celebrities using it. I like it though, and it matches my criteria so I will consider adding it. I love Coral too, but maybe slightly too watery?

Hope these have given you some ideas
    I like Belle even though it sounds kind of filler-ish. Must be my association with Beauty and the Beast.

    I also like Maxine, Skye, and Luna.
