    Need the perfect middle name for Arabella (nickname "Bella") that will be used a lot.

    My older daughter is named Katelyn Rose and we always call her "Katie Rose". For this baby (due in October) we have settled on the name Arabella, but will most likely be calling her Bella and I want to find a middle name that sounds great saying it together with Bella but I am stumped! I have friends with two daughters named Alexis Katherine (nickname is Ali Kat) and the other daughter is Samantha Josephine (nickname Sammie Jo) I absolutley LOVE the idea of longer first and middle names with matching nicknames like that. So I am looking for either a short middle name that goes well with Bella or a longer middle name that can be shortened into a nickname that goes well with Bella. It will be something we use often and call her everyday. Hopefully that makes sense! Thank you SO much for any suggestions!

    I really love the idea of a "Bella June", so June is one I suggest.

    Also perhaps you'd like:
    Bella Jane
    Bella Mary
    Bella Joyce
    Bella Grace

    Cute idea! I'd go shorter with Arabella, myself, but a lot depends on the length of your last name.

    So, for something short, you might try:

    Arabella Faith - Bella Faith, Bella Fae
    Arabella Faye - Bella Faye
    Arabella Grace - Bella Grace, Bella Gray
    Arabella Greer - Bella Greer - This isn't as cute as I think you want...
    Arabella Jane - Bella Jane
    Arabella June - Bella June
    Arabella Maeve - Bella Maeve, Bella Mae
    Arabella May - Bella May
    Arabella Pearl - Bella Pearl
    Arabella Ruth - Bella Ruth, Bella Rue
    Arabella Sage - Bella Sage

    Or, for something a little longer, you might try:

    Arabella Beatrix or Arabella Beatrice - Bella Bea, or Bebe (or, for Arabella Beatrix, she could be Bella Trix!)
    Arabella Dorothy - Bella Dot
    Arabella Gwendolyn - Bella Gwen
    Arabella Juliet - Bella Jules, Bella Jet
    Arabella Jessamine - Bella Jess
    Arabella Junia - Bella June
    Arabella Marie - Bella Mae
    Arabella Margaret - Bella Meg
    Arabella Natalie - Bella Nat
    Arabella Phoebe - Bella Bee, or Bebe
    Arabella Rachel - Bella Rae
    Arabella Vivienne - Bella Viv

    Best of luck!
