    Bring On The Compound Names!

    Hello Berries, it's been a rather frustrating day here on Nameberry so I thought it would be fun to discuss our favourite compound names (aka blended names or smooshes). I know many of you don't like this style but there are some well-established and legitimate names out there to love. I don't care for the trend of adding "lyn" at the end of every name or word but different strokes for different folks. Here are some of my faves. I have grouped them together under various titles but I'm sure I've missed some good ones. Would anyone like to share any other gems?

    The “Beths”

    Annabeth
    Lilibeth
    Lizabeth
    Marabeth/Maribeth

    The “Belles”

    Annabel
    Mirabel
    Maribel
    Claribel/Clarabel
    Maybelle
    Sarabel
    Belinda

    The “Annes”

    Anneliese
    Marian/Marianna/Marianne
    Georgiana
    Pollyanna
    Ruthann
    The “Lees”
    Rosalie
    Coralie
    Adalie
    Novalee/Novalie

    The “Roses”

    Rosemary/Rosemarie
    Rosalind
    Rosamund
    Rosabel
    Rosabeth

    The “Hyphens”

    Mary-Jane
    Mary-Alice
    Mary-Grace
    Mary-Solace
    Mary-Catherine/Mary-Kate
    Anne-Marie
    Daphne-Jane
    Susanna-Leigh
    Georgia-Kate
    Alice-Anna
    Audrey-Claire
    Bonnie-May
    Eva-Marie
    Ruby-Jean

    @Ottilie, you see I knew I would miss some gems. Belphoebe is lovely! Dorabel sounds like adorable which isn't a bad thing. Nighty nighty and sweet dreams!
    All the best,
    Mischa.
