    Finley - does my middle name go with this?

    My baby girl is due in 5 weeks. My husband and I have only been able to agree on Finley for a first name. I really want to use my mother's name, Evelyn, as the middle name in remembrance of her. We were thinking Finley Evelyn Rose. Now, my question is: sounding that name out, are there too many L's? As in, does it sound ok or completely awkward? I am starting to believe I'm either over thinking this or it really does sound weird....Thanks in advance for any feedback!

    I prefer Rose in the middle- either Finley Rose Evelyn or (my favorite) Evelyn Rose Finley. It kind of depends on your surname, though. Evelyn Rose Finley actually sounds like a complete name, so it might not work as well when you add another on the end.

    I don't think it is terrible or anything, but it also doesn't have that totally natural, intuitive flow. Sorry, I don't imagine this helps much!

    Finley Evelyn Rose is a lovely combo.

    I don't think there are too many L's, it's perfect as it is.

    Depends on how you pronounce Evelyn. If it's like eev-lynn then it sounds a little off flow wise. But if you say it ev-uh-lynn then I think it sounds just fine.

    dont think there are too many L's

    if it was Finley Everly then yes, too much

    though since Finley is so trendy and will date your daughters name i say go more classic:

    Evelyn Finley Rose
