Combining Middle Names
We have two, very common, family middle names: Marie and Lynn. Both of our mothers have the middle name Lynn, but the middle name Marie has been passed down for three generations (skipping my mother). What do you think about combining the two into Marielynn. Too long and awkward? Any suggestions on combining the two?

Marielynn sounds weird and made-up. I second the idea about using Marilyn, seems like the easiest solution.Zelia/Elja • Nineteen • Name and history nerd from an early age • I have a blog.

How about something a little less intuitive but still fitting, like Maren. I also like Marilyn, but I know many have mixed reactions to that name. So I think Maren (or Marin) would be a cute alternative. I guess you could always just use the names individually, but honestly I'm not a fan of using such common middle names, even if they are family related. I think it would be really cool to find a fresh way to incorporate both.~Larissa
