    "Normal" middle names for eccentric FN choices?

    Hi, all. I sometimes hear Berries saying that if you use a really rare first name it sounds best paired with a more recognizable middle name (or vice versa). I'm having issues finding "The" middle name for two of my girl names, so I thought I'd try this idea on for size.

    The two FN's I'm loving are Nanami (na-na-mee) and Xanthe (zan-thee).

    Can you suggest some more down-to-earth middle names for this duo?

    Nanami ______
    Xanthe ______

    Names I'd like to avoid:
    -virtue names like Grace, Faith, Hope, etc (they just aren't my cup of tea)
    -really common MN's like Ann, Marie, Lynn, Elizabeth, Katherine, Rose, Claire, etc.

    Anything else is fair game!

    Briar
    Eira
    Eve
    Gardenia
    Garland
    Garnet
    Haven
    Holiday
    June
    Hyacinth

    Magnolia
    Maple
    Marigold
    Opal
    Orchid
    Peridot
    Pomeline
    Primrose
    Snow
    Tulip

    sarahmezz - Thanks for all the help!
    From your first list, I like: Adelaide, Alexandra, Alice, Blythe, Cecilia, Celeste, Clementine, Cordelia, Eleanor, Josephine, Lavinia, Louisa, Miranda, Pearl, Penelope, Violet, Vivienne. {I also like Beatrice but I think it doesn't sound too hot with the last name}
    From nature names I like: Amaryllis, Eira, Eve, Garnet, Holiday, June, Hyacinth, Magnolia, Maple, Marigold, Orchid, Pomeline, Snow, Willow, Winter, & Wren.

    sorceress: Sansa remains on my list, no worries. I like Georgina, Charlotte, & Fern from your ideas.
