    Welsh middle name to go w/ Willow and sibling Noelle Eirwen?

    If we have a daughter, we've decided on the name Noelle Eirwen (ayer-wen). I can't put into words how much I love this name. It makes me feel so giddy and happy. I have never felt this way about a name before. It's perfect for us.

    With that being said, we plan to have 2-3 children and if we have a 2nd daughter, she will be Willow. Right now, we have the combo Willow Seraphina but I was considering looking into other Welsh names like Eirwen as a middle for Willow too. I may keep Seraphina but I'm interested in some suggestions of names I may have not seen before. Since finding Eirwen, I've noticed I really love Welsh names, especially ones ending in -wen.

    Anyways, would love to hear what suggestions you may have or your favorite Welsh names. I'd also love opinions on these combos:

    Willow Rhoswen (roz-wen)
    Willow Eleri (el-air-ee... best way I know how to type it out)
    Willow Eirlys (ayr-liss)
    Willow Arianwen (air-ee-ann-wen)

    Would it be weird to have 2 daughters with middle names that both end in "wen" or start with "eir"?

    I do think it would be a bit matchy to have both middles with the same ending or beginning.
    Some ideas:
    Aderyn (means bird, maybe too nature-y with Willow)
    Betrys
    Carys
    Seren
    Mabyn
    Ffion
    Rhiannon
    Glenys/Glynis


    I love Eirwen but I find Eirlys (snowdrop) too adorable to pass up. Would you consider Noelle Eirlys which would leave the -wen names for Willow?
    Willow Ceridwen
    Willow Gwendolen
    Willow Tegwen
    Willow Mairwen

    Thank you for the suggestions! I love Eirlys too but I am in love with Eirwen, that one is pretty set in stone.

    I really like Seren and Rhiannon. I can't use Rhiannon though, it's my niece's name.
