1 week tomorrow and need middle for Willow!
Hello yes me again! I think we're definitely set on Willow but will keep Daisy in case she looks like a Daisy! We just don't have a middle and I'm all about equal love of both names!
We love something unexpected in the middle and I don't think we have found it yet.
Our favourites from our list...
Willow Finn - I know Finn is a traditional boys name but it's been a favourite of mine and I think it goes well with Willow.
Willow Ocean- The baby will be a Pisces and we just love the ocean! Just need something that beachy but not cliche like 'Summer'.
Willow Wilde - This doesn't go but if the baby is a boy it will be 'Otis Wilder' and I just love the idea of the name. If only it went with Willow!
Willow Ace - My partner and I just love this name for a boy. It has a special meaning for us but not sure if it's too much?
Willow Koa - Koa is the wood that surfboards are made from. It is a traditional boys name in Hawaii. I just love it!
Willow Fox - My partner really likes this! It's short and spunky. I like the unexpected in the middle.
Willow Hazel - I'm not sure what it is about Hazel but it's got me!
As you can see we don't have a style for the middle! We are big travellers and I wish there was a place that would fit in the middle!
You Berries have been amazing. I'm sorry for another post but I really need your help!Boys: Otis Wilder, Leo Wilder, Atlas Finn, Dash Theodore, Arlo River, Kit Wilder & Arrow Grey
Girls: Willow Grey, Willow Ocean, Bowie Juniper, Luca Valentine, Frankie Wilde & Goldie Marlowe

Hi! I think my naming instincts are a little different from yours, since my preference goes straight to the traditionally feminine middle names paired with Willow, so take my feedback with that in mind.
Out of your list I like Willow Hazel (because it's the most girly, haha), but I'm also a little hesitant with double "word"/"nature" names. I also love the ocean, and I had considered Oceane (Oh-say-ahn) as a middle name for my daughter. I think it's likely to be a pronunciation problem in English (it's a French name), but in the middle spot, that shouldn't matter too much and it makes the name a little less "word"-y and more "name"-y to me. Same thing with the variation Oceana (which could be Oh-shee-ah-nah or Oh-say-ah-nah). But again, this is an idiosyncratic preference. If Willow Ocean is more meaningful to you--and since you clearly like the unisex vibe--I think that could be a really great choice for you.
Lastly, I seized on the (again, girly!) Valentine in your signature. I think Willow Valentine would be a lovely name, especially if she arrives in February!
Good luck with the home stretch of your pregnancy. It's clear you've put a lot of thought into naming your daughter, and I'm sure whatever you choose will be the perfect choice :-)

I really like Willow Juniper. Actually love it! I also agree Willow Valentine is adorable.
Some place names I think flow well with Willow -
As for your list, I like Willow Finn. It's different and spunky. I like that it's more a common choice for a boy than a girl.Florence Juniper ・ Penelope Josette ・ Eleanor KateEverly Julietta ・ Juniper Esme ・ Willow JosephineHenry Atlas ・ Griffin Jack・ Callum Bennett

After looking at your signature I was also jumping in to say I like Willow Valentine very much - and see previous posters think the same way!
From your list my favourite is Willow Finn - I think this is snappy, interesting and lovely. I think Finn works fine for a girl. I'm not keen on the others with Willow, though sound-wise Willow Hazel works. It's just too much greenery for me having first and middle names both trees.
