    Frances Jean or Jean Frances for double middle

    What sounds best? Or do you prefer the Jeanne spelling?

    Example for first name spot- Magnolia.

    Magnolia Frances Jean
    Magnolia Jean Frances

    I'm open to suggestions that work for honoring Jean & Francis as well! I like Eugenie very much. Thanks!

    I also prefer Frances Jean. That's actually my husband's grandmother's first and middle! I've always thought Francesca would be a good way to honor her, but he doesn't like it. :-P I like Jean as it is.

    Beatrice is another family name for me! But it kind of clashes with Frances for me, family-wise not sound-wise

    I'm not pregnant so my fn list doesn't have much focus, but we will do a double middle with 2 honor names for any girls we have so I wanted to figure out what works best.

    Names I love for the FN spot
    Bernadette
    Thais
    Veronica nn Vinca
    Anna, but for Anna I would use Anna Beatrice ______ and figuring out the 2nd middle would be a challenge!
    Wilhelmina
    Marietta
    Magnolia

    Husband hates/I love
    Fern
    Greta
    Calliope
    Teresa
    Suzette
    Annette
    Edna

    Jean Frances flows better as a combo but of course the order depends on the first name. Jeanne is the French spelling so I would be more prone to pronounce the name the French way (ZHAHN). I've also heard it said like "JEEN-ee". Eugenie would be a great option. I think the names on your list work best in these combos. Thais is the only one I don't like with either mn.

    Magnolia Jean Frances
    Veronica Jean Frances
    Marietta Jean Frances

    Bernadette Frances Jean
    Wilhelmina Frances Jean
    All the best,
