Middle Names for Girls

Middle names for girls run the gamut from the traditional connecting names such as Rose and Lee to family surnames to new names carrying deep meaning. Many parents these days look to the middle as a place to put family names that might be too old-fashioned or unusual to use in first place. Middle names for girls that are surnames, boy names, or word names expressing some desirable quality such as True or Justice are also up-and-coming. Some parents turn to middle names as a way to honor heroines they want their daughters to emulate. Another trend is to use two or more middle names instead of just one. These middle names for girls typify a range of categories and styles. For even more choices, browse our master list of Middle Names.
