    Girl Names with Long A Sound

    Hi everyone,

    Our last name is MacLean, and we were hoping to find names with the long a sound (Grace), but that don't rhyme with MacLean (e.g., Jane). Any ideas out there?

    Thanks,
    Debra

    Re: Girl Names with Long A Sound

    I think a name with the long A sound in the first syllable sounds lovely with MacLean. Ava, Hazel and Daisy are all excellent suggestions. I'd stay away from one syllable names with the long A because it's a bit too much long A in one name, you know? Grace MacLean, Kate MacLean, Jade Maclean, etc. Other names (very random list):

    Caitlin
    Bailey
    Mabel
    Rachel
    Shaina
    Sunday
    Tatum
    Zadie
    Georgiana (jor-JAY-nuh)
    Haven
    Maeve

    Hope that helps!
