    elaine and faye as one name?

    Would like to put my mother in laws and mothers name into one for a middle. Not sure how this would work or if at all. Something like faileen? Any suggestions or other ideas on how to honour both? Thanks all

    Faileen wouldn't exactly be my pick.. what about Flavia? Or Favia? I was think Fa as in Faye , and F for Flavia, and Elaine & Flavia are similar to me..

    Unfortunately I think Faileen, Faelaine, etc sounds too much like feline, what about Elaine Faye? or Elaina Faye for better flow?

    While it does sound like feline, that's not the worst thing and we are talking about the middle spot.

    I would just avoid a spelling that includes the letter sequence "fail". And putting the stress on the second syllable, like Faline, and like Elaine, keeps it from sounding too much like "failing."

    I also think Elaine-Faye is fine, complicated but fine. Similarly for Elaine Faye, Faye-Elaine, Faye Elaine. You could chain them together Fayelaine. It's not the easiest on the eyes but it has good meaning and is in the middle.

    Flaine for a one syllable?

    Faina? It's hard to combine them. I think using a double middle name is a good idea. I think Faye Elaine as a double middle name is fine depending on what first name you want. I think you could use similar names too, like Ella Faye, Elaina Faith, Ella Faith.
