Middles are so difficult!
I've posted a few times before, but I just haven't found anything that dh and I both love and agree on. Or I second guess myself and worry that it doesn't flow well or fit with our sibset.
I was trying to follow a set of "rules" based on our other children's names, but I just want to hear what you all think sounds the best in the middle spot.
We have Eloise Julian, Beatrix London, and Foster Kingsley.
Baby #4 will be either Ottoline ________ or Atlas ___________

Ottoline strikes me as a vintage name with a little more dust on it than others that have been popular and rising on the forums here -- and I'm surprised at how much I like it! I think that you could go with something quirky and unexpected in the middle spot, or something a bit more classic. But basically anything except for maybe anything "ee" and "een" ending in general (always exceptions!) would work.
I'd be curious to know what the "rules" are!
Ottoline Arcadia -- a bit bold, but I like the sound of it.
Ottoline Lucy / Lucille
Ottoline Maeve / Mae
Atlas Alexander -- actually quite like this, though don't usually go for alliterative names.
Atlas Fionn / Finn / Finnian
