    Which L middle name?

    My first name is Lucy. I am looking for a name or two to give myself as a middle name as I was never given one at birth. My name at the moment is Lucy Brooks.

    I am considering an L name for my middle name. Some of the options are listed below.

    Lucy Luella
    Lucy Louise
    Lucy Liana
    Lucy Liliana
    Lucy Lilian
    Lucy Livia
    Lucy Lydia
    Lucy Lysandra
    Lucy Leona
    Lucy Leora
    Lucy Lilias

    Which one do you like best and why? Which flows the best?

    Thanks in advance.

    I like Lucy Lydia best from the list but I'd personally opt for fewer syllables so it's less of a mouthful. Maybe:

    Lucy Lieve
    Lucy Lane
    Lucy Leta
    Lucy Lena
    * RAPHAELLE * MILOU * ISADORA * SUNNIVA * ANOUK * WYNN * MIREILLE
    * CASPIAN * SAUL * LIEV * WELLS * HENRIK * NIKOLAI * ANSEL *

    I feel that Lucy Liana has the best flow, and makes for a lovely combo. Lucy Leora is also quite nice. I think that the alliteration is a nice idea, however, I think avoiding a middle with a prominent S (Lilias) sound or a third L (Lilian), might be best in regard to flow, otherwise it tends to sound a bit hiss-y and/or tongue-tied when said aloud, if that's of any concern to you.

    Lucy Linnea / Lucy Linnaea (lih-NAY-uh) came to mind which sounds lovely, and might be something you like.

    I think Lucy Lysandra and Lucy Liana are best. I also think Lucy Linnea works really well.

    Luella and Louise are a bit much “Lou Lou” for me. But if that’s what you want, go for it.
    I adore the name Liliana and Liana. Both are incredibly sweet. I prefer them over Lilian. I’d also suggest Lilia for consideration
    Livia sounds like a nickname for Olivia to me, but I do really like Lydia. Lysandra sounds a bit over the top to me, a little stuffy.
    Leona and Leora are okay, but I don’t particularly love them. Lilias just looks like the possessive of Lilia.
    I really like Lucy Liliana/Liana/Lilia. I also like Lucy Lydia.

    As I said many times before, Lucy Louise. I'm also partial to Lucy Lydia, but my pick would be Lucy Louise.

    ° Charlotte Illyria ° Alice Kerensa ° Helena Eponine ° Melissa Romilly °
    ° Aurora Eilonwy ° Cecilia Esther ° Isabella Thisbe ° Matilda Nefertiti °
    ° Juliet Sunniva ° Giselle Nerissa ° Dorothea Brynhild ° Lyra Gwenllian °
    ° Rosalie Amoret ° Beatrice Rosina ° Rosamund Paisley ° Rosabelle Kyra °
    ° Melody Boudicca ° Freya Millicent ° Saskia Bridget ° Emmeline Carys

    Omg, same! I’m looking for a middle name too right now, I’m totally in the same boat. I think Lucy Leonie or Lucy Louise. Personally I wouldn’t go for the 2 L names (do a different letter for each perhaps). Lucy Louise sounds really nice, though!
