Long middle name for Tess
So we are really loving Tess but we are having problems with the middle name. It needs to be long since our last name is Cook, Tess Cook is very short so we want a long middle name, 3-4 syllables, but not to frilly.
So far we have thought of:
I would like to avoid names with the S sound so Elizabeth worries me a bit. We feel like Tess Evangeline is what we are looking for but we just aren't loving it. Which is/are your favorite(s), suggestions are also welcomed.
Starting over with:

I think that Tess and Elizabeth sound harsh next to each other. The Z sound in Elizabeth is so prominent, and the S sound at the end of Tess is as well. I would avoid Evangeline for that reason also. I feel like Tess needs a softer mn to balance the S sound.
I would use Tess Emmeline or Tess Adelaide.Little Bean arriving September 2014

All of your middle name options start with vowels and run into Tess, so when said aloud it's hard to tell if the name is "Tess Elizabeth/Adelaide/other" or "Tessa Elizabeth/Adelaide/other." If you're choosing a middle based on style only, I'd look into more middle names that start with consonants, or just use Tessa, Teresa, or even Thomasina with Tess as a nickname.
