Thread: Middle Name for Juniper
January 9th, 2014 01:11 PM #6
I like Juniper Amelia best. The flow isn't quite as nice as the others, but with Juniper being a word name I wouldn't use Robin/Gray in the middle. Plus I think because Juniper is so rare it's nice to have something so classic in the middle.
Juniper and Robin would make gorgeous sisters, though - save it!★ close to my heart ★ Billie Cordelia - Jemima Eilidh - May Margaret - Estella Agnes - Jessamine Martha
Emmett Jack - Alec Huw - Wilfred Nicholas - Rufus Kielder - Harrison Tadhg - Robert Fox - Wes Oberon

I hadn't thought about two word names being a problem before. Juniper Gray will remain in the running, because I really like the family association as well as the sound of the name. I'm not too worried about it being 'masculine.'
I also like Juniper Louise, but my husband does not. Other family names:
Helen (or Helena, which I prefer)
Another thing I like about Gray is that Juniper Gray sounds like it could be a pen name (or artist name) if our daughter wants to drop our long, hyphenated last name. Perhaps that's why I was gravitating toward word names.
Other suggestions? I'm very open to finding new middles because I'm just gushing over Juniper!Phoebe Gail, Maxie Juniper

Juniper Gail is lovely as well! I may like that better than Juniper Grey as it doesn't repeat the R.
I don't think the double word name is really a problem since they're so different. If it was Grey Juniper it would be an issue because it sounds like you're describing it. And something like Juniper Rose might be too much since they're both plants. I think Juniper Grey is fine though, personally. Beautiful in fact.
Have you seen Benny and Joon? Joon's full name is Juniper! Super cute/kooky movie!
Others that could work: (I really like the flow with 1 syllable names)

I like Juniper Gray and Juniper Amelia best. Juniper Amelia's flow depends on how you're pronouncing Amelia - if it's with 3 syllables, it flows well, if it's with 4, it doesn't flow QUITE as great. Juniper Gray is pretty, it's a bit wordy but in that order I think it's fine.
Some other thoughts:
Juniper Eve"Wren." Teenberry (14). Far from kids, but name obsessed.
