    Alba

    What do you think of the name Alba? Do you feel it would age well?

    Alba Lilac has been my favorite girl's combo for a few months now. Still, I'd like to see if maybe there's a better middle name for her out there that I have missed. What would you suggest as a middle name for Alba?

    My Alba Combos:
    Alba Lilac
    Alba Violet
    Alba Hazel
    Alba Sophia - I like it, but I hear Albus...
    Alba Magnolia
    Alba Winter

    Thanks!

    I really like Alba! It's unusual and uncommon (438 in E&W 2012) but simple and familiar. It's also very pretty and I can picture a girl/woman of any age with this name. My only complaints are that it has pretty limited nn potential and not the most exciting meaning.

    From your combos I like Alba Hazel. I agree with you about Alba Sophia sounding like Albus. The others are pretty but too much colour, I would avoid using 2 colour names. Alba Winter (obviously meaning white winter) is either really sweet or a bit much, I can't decide.

    I like Alba Blythe from the pp's suggestions

    You seem to like fairly vintage/classic feminine names? I'll try to suggest some middles you might like

    Alba Beatrix/Beatrice
    Alba Colette
    Alba Estelle
    Alba Josephine
    Alba Pearl (I know, it's kind of hypocritical of me to suggest a combo like this after commenting on the meanings of your combos )
    Alba Juliet

    I quite like it with 3 syllable middles

    Spunk and clunk? I love it! That's really a fun little way to put it.

    I love your suggestions of Alba Maude, Alba Francine, and Alba Maeve.

    Thank you!
