Finley - does my middle name go with this?
My baby girl is due in 5 weeks. My husband and I have only been able to agree on Finley for a first name. I really want to use my mother's name, Evelyn, as the middle name in remembrance of her. We were thinking Finley Evelyn Rose. Now, my question is: sounding that name out, are there too many L's? As in, does it sound ok or completely awkward? I am starting to believe I'm either over thinking this or it really does sound weird....Thanks in advance for any feedback!

I prefer Rose in the middle- either Finley Rose Evelyn or (my favorite) Evelyn Rose Finley. It kind of depends on your surname, though. Evelyn Rose Finley actually sounds like a complete name, so it might not work as well when you add another on the end.
I don't think it is terrible or anything, but it also doesn't have that totally natural, intuitive flow. Sorry, I don't imagine this helps much!

Depends on how you pronounce Evelyn. If it's like eev-lynn then it sounds a little off flow wise. But if you say it ev-uh-lynn then I think it sounds just fine.Name list currently being rebuilt!
