    Harlan on a girl or go with Avery?

    Hi everyone,
    My first daughter's name is Ada Elizabeth.

    Two names that I really like are Avery and Harlan. Do you think Harlan works on a girl?
    Also how about how it sounds with our last name 'Hatfield'?

    What works better:

    Avery Lynn Hatfield
    Harlan Frances Hatfield

    Middle names aren't set in stone (I just picked my moms first and middle as potentials).

    Harlan sounds like a gruff old man. I would go with Avery Frances. Even then, Avery is very androgynous with a sister named Ada.

    Ada Elizabeth is so girlie and pretty. Harlan ( if you named her that) might feel out of place with an elderly man sounding name. Avery is also unisex, but I'd go with it over Harlan.

    The alliteration would be an issue w/Harlan, though not such a big deal if you use it in the middle spot. Avery Harlan sounds sweet.

    I don't think any name is strictly boy or girl.

    I'm sure if you picked Harlan it would immediately become a beautiful girl's name

    I prefer Harlan.... but I'm not sure on Frances as a middle name.


    Harlan Avery Hatfield
    Harlan Grace Hatfield
    Harlan May Hatfield
    Harlan Charlotte Hatfield

    Harlan Hatfield is A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E

    Good luck
