Joy? Any middle name suggestions?
I love virtue names, and both the word and the name Joy have a lot of significance to me, and so would Joy be a stunningly meaningful name for a little girl. It's sweet, simple, and familiar although I've never met anyone called Joy. It is seen as very old-fashioned here, but I love it enough that I can put that aside.
But it's getting quite hard to find the right middle name, mainly because I feel that to balance the rhythm with a 2 syllable surname, a 3/4 syllable name is needed and none of the combinations I have come up with feel right.
Joy Elizabeth - a little too vanilla?
Joy Genevieve - too repetitive!
Joy Caroline - I really, really want to love this one, I really do. Caroline is a middle name that runs in my family and I would love to carry that on, but I just can't get used to Joy Caroline because I feel like Caroline Joy would sound so much better....
Joy Susannah - probably my favourite, but I still don't love it.
So what do you think? Can you come up with any lovely middle names?

Hmmm... I LOVE Joy, and it's funny b/c I have almost used Susannah Joy and I did heavily consider Caroline Joy, so it is hard for me to see those two the other way around. Here are some other suggestions:
Joy Elizabeth (I think this is pretty!)
Joy Josephine (I actually kind of like the sound of this)
