    All you one-middle-name-only Berries, show me the way! :)

    Before we all panic and have a meltdown, no, I haven't decided to go back to just one middle. But I have decided to add Anne-Sophie, a double-barrel name (obviously!), to my list. So while I see it as one cohesive unit, it is technically two names already, and I feel like Anne-Sophie Iris Vivienne or Anne-Sophie Juliette Pearl would be just way too much name for a poor kid to handle (even though I think it's beautiful!).

    My problem is, I don't even know where to start when I'm not planning for two middles--everything I come up with either feels too unmemorable, or too trite, or too incomplete. I don't know what to do when it's just one middle! haha. Anne-Sophie is already chock-full of ties to my grandma, best friend, baby sister, and even my love of languages (that I share with both of my sisters), so I'm not terribly concerned with finding a middle name with meaning (although I don't want it to be filler, either).

    What would you pair with Anne-Sophie (an-so-FEE is the French inflection, but I expect to hear a lot of ANN-SO-fee...)? At this point, I'm not even sure, stylistically, what type of middle works best with Anne-Sophie. Would you keep to another French name, like Odette, Juliette, or Helene? Or branch out a wee bit?

    Thanks, Berries!

    I don't know--I don't think the length/syllable count really matters for me? My two favorites so far seem to be Anne-Sophie Magritte and Anne-Sophie Iris, neither of which is terribly long, haha. Although I've never considered Magritte in my life, and I don't really find it to be my style, so I'm not sure I'd use it. And I'm afraid of over-flowering my girls' list, haha. Although I do really want to add Iris (and Daisy... ugh, guilty!).

    I really like Sophie and Genevieve together, and I like Anne-Sophie Genevieve, but I'm not the hugest fan of the French prn. for Genevieve. Ironically. I have considered Anne-Sophie Evangeline before, but I just worried it's too long? I don't know. I do like the idea of Anne-Sophie Helena/Anne-Sophie Helene, though...

    I personally think that Anne-Sophie is lovely on it's own, although if you're looking for middle names, here are some you might like:

    Anne-Sophie Gisele
    Anne-Sophie Louise
    Anne-Sophie Elizabeth (Elisabeth)
    Anne-Sophie Marina (Marine)
    Anne-Sophie Victoria (Victoire)
    Anne-Sophie Magdalene

    I also think that another French name would work best.
