Need new middle name for Eve
Edited to add updated list***** (in bold)
We've narrowed it down to the following from all of your beautiful suggestions! Husband was not loving the super French names that I preferred, so here's what we've got:
Holly Lorraine & Eve Rosalie
Holly Lorraine & Eve Sophie (pronounced so-FEE)
Holly Lorraine & Eve Sophia (we can't tell if maybe the three-syllable works better)
Holly Lorraine & Eve Isabelle (not loving this, it sounds a bit too much like "Invisible")
Holly Lorraine & Eve Melina
Holly Lorraine & Eve Adeline
Would love all of your help narrowing it down!
--------------- original post below-------------
I'm hoping this will be my last post for this pregnancy!!
The husband and I decided on Eve Eleni with excitement, with Eleni being an honour name. We've now realized, after saying it out loud a number of times, that it actually sounds like "Evil Any" and find ourselves unhappy with the choice.
We still love Eve, so the hubs told me to "ask my name friends" AKA you lovely berries
I prefer for the middle to still have meaning/purpose, even though it won't be an honour name. We obviously don't want anything starting with El- . I tend to like classic, feminine names. I also adore the name Jane but it sounds awful paired with Eve.
Big sister is Holly Lorraine, with Lorraine being a family name, and I thought about continuing the French city idea.. I like the sound of Eve Annecy but think it's too uncommon for us.
Would appreciate all the suggestions and feedback shared!

Aww, too bad, because Eve and Eleni are both lovely names! But I understand that noone wants their daughter's name to sound like evil!
My first thought was Eve Amara. No idea why! It is so beautiful, but maybe a bit more random and extravagant for your taste . Second thought, Eve Annora.
One cool thing I read on nameberry about the name Lorraine, another name for Joan of Arc was Saint Joan of Lorraine. So I thought Joan would be a cool middle name for you, with a connection to Lorraine! But then I realized it has the same problem as Jane. Eve Joan is very abrupt.
And just a few names with lovely meanings-
Eve Cerys- Cerys is Welsh for love
Eve Melina- love/warmth/grace in Czech
Eve Letitia- joy/gladness in Latin
Eve Cosima- order/beauty in Greek
Eve Indira- Sanskrit for beautifulForrester North|Sky Remington|Brighton Fox||Azura Star|Aurora Blue|Araluen Eve
