    What names go with this middle name?

    We want to use Jennifer as a middle name to honor one of our friends. My husband and I have a list of girls' names, but I don't know if any of them go with this middle name, which is non-negotiable. I am having trouble pairing it with anything or envisioning it as a middle name, but it's very important to us to honor our friend in this way.

    Do any of these work with Jennifer as a middle name?

    Savannah
    Caroline
    Aria
    Bianca
    Callista

    I am open to other suggestions as well. Just looking for something feminine that works well with the middle name. I appreciate any thoughts.

    I could see it going well with something short(er), like Ivy or Alice.

    EDIT: Maybe Cara instead of Caroline?

    Aria Jennifer, Bianca Jennifer, and Calista Jennifer sound fine. I love the name Caroline, but the flow's not the best. Savannah is just too trendy.
    If you don't love Jennifer, you could also use variants such as Ginevra or Guinevere.

    Lydia Jennifer
    Charlotte Jennifer
    Anastasia Jennifer
    Louisa Jennifer
    Fiona Jennifer
    Ivy Jennifer

    Savannah - I feel that this repeats too many of the same sounds as Jennifer. It's very pretty, though.
    Caroline - I adore Caroline, but I don't feel that it has the best flow.
    Aria - lovely name, brilliant flow.
    Bianca - doesn't seem quite right.
    Callista - quite good flow.
    Ivy - brilliant.
    Alice - wonderful, but it seems a little abrupt with Jennifer.
    Cara - a lovely name with excellent flow. I also adore Clara.

    My favourites are Ivy Jennifer, Cara Jennifer and Aria Jennifer.

    It seems that two-syllable names which end in vowels go best with Jennifer (Aria is an exception :) ), and so I thought I'd chip in with some more :
    Ailsa
    Anna
    Anya
    Chloe
    Cora
    Daisy
    Daphne
    Esme
    Flora
    Freya
    Isla
    Lilah
    Lilou
    Lily
    Lucy
    Margot (marg-oh)
    Maya
    Nola
    Nora
    Oona
    Petra
    Phoebe
    Pippa
    Poppy
    Rhea
    Rosa
    Sorcha (sor-sha)
    Tara
    Tessa
    Willa.

    Personally, I think the ones ending in -ee sounds work the best.

    Good luck!

    I say don't worry too much about the middle name. The most important thing is that you like the first name.
