Classic, Elegant names for the middle spot please!!!
So hubby is pretty adamant that we give our "poor kids" (not pregnant yet, but I hope soon!!!) "normal" middle names to go with my "out there" first name choices that he has reluctantly agreed to, Cytheria and Sequoia.
So now I need some help coming up with middles that are "normal", which to me means timeless, that go with those. So far I like (stylistically, but not necessarily with my names):
Rules: can't begin with a vowel or end in "l" or "a" so obviously some of these don't work
Thanks, berries!!!Baby boy due October 2014! Current tentative name:

Yup, that's what they're like. I really like Sequoia Jonathan and Cytheria Violet from your signature, but here are some more:
Sequoia Hugh or Hugo
Sequoia Laurence or Lawrence
Sequoia Lewis or Louis
Cytheria Cecily or Cicely
Cytheria Joy or Joyce

@ottilie, do you ever find that in picking out names, the more "common" ones already tend to have associations with people you know? I realize this might be why I like unique names so much - no prior feelings. I have uncles named Gregory, Peter, and Christopher, so those are out unfortunately. A few others from your list are ex-lovers (eek). and my husband's name is Jeff so Geoffrey is definitely out (he is offended by the G spelling, lol)... On ths girls side I don't have nearly as many conflicts... I like Florence, Rose. hubby likes Jasmine (interesting...). Thank you for the suggestions! As you know, everything helps.
@judyariel, thanks for your list! For boy middles I like Tobias - this has actually been on my list for awhile but I never thought about pairing it with Sequoia. For girls, I like Daphne. I have a bush of the flowers on my deck - they smell so lovely!Baby boy due October 2014! Current tentative name:
