    Striking while the iron is hot...

    So my husband and I recently found out we will be adding a new addition to the family in 2014. We have one son, Evan Alexzander who is 5. Everything about this pregnancy is already completely different than with my son (even at only 9 weeks!) and intuition just has me feeling as though this baby is a girl.

    Normally my husband and I have completely different naming styles, but today my husband out of the blue said that he loves the name June. His normal naming style falls into the overdone 80's category with names like Tiffany and Melanie. So June is a complete (but very welcome) surprise, and i am striking while the iron is hot and trying to come up with a lovely combo. However, middles are stumping me. I feel like I can't hit the right sound. Some thoughts now:

    June Penelope
    June Elisabeth
    June Cordelia

    But none of those feel like they quite hit the sweet spot, if you know what I mean? May be a double middle? Any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated!!

    Congratulations on your pregnancy! June is so pretty. Some ideas for you...

    I love repeating sounds in first and middle names, so here are some suggestions with a repeating U sound:
    June Lucille
    June Louise
    June Luisa
    June Lunette

    I love the rhythm in these names:
    June Antoinette
    June Alouette

    Summer imagery:
    June Prairie
    June Marigold

    June flows nicely into a middle name that starts with a vowel:
    June Adelaide
    June Aloisa
    June Amelia
    June Azalia
    June Elora
    June Eliana
    June Eloisa
    June Opal
    June Imogen

    Good luck!

    I think they aren't sounding right to you because the stress is on the 2nd syllable, and with a one syllable firsts usually they sound best with names where the stress is on the first or the third syllable.

    June Adelaide
    June Beverly
    June Catarina
    June Claribel
    June Clementine
    June Eleanora
    June Eloise
    June Gabriella
    June Mallory
    June Rosalyn
    June Valerie
    Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
    Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin

    June is so beautiful, and I love it with Evan! For middles, I like the suggestion of June Adelaide. I was also looking at your list of girls' names and I think June Emmeline would be lovely, too.
