    Help! Which middle for Theodora?

    Theodora Elsie or Theodora Grace - which do you prefer?

    Theodora Grace had been my favorite for a long time - I love how elegant it sounds, as well as the cute nickname “Teddy Grace”. However, I recently thought of Theodora Elsie and can’t decide if I like that combo more! While I like that it makes Theodora feels a little less stoic, I’m not sure I want to lose Teddy Grace as a nickname....any thoughts would be appreciated!

    I think that both are quite nice, but I do prefer Theodora Grace as it has a better flow, and as Theodora is a 'big' name already, it makes sense to pair it with a simple, no-nonsense classic like Grace.

    Theodora Grace flows a bit better. I personally like Elsie but adore Grace.

    Definitely Grace. I'm not a huge fan of Elsie (I personally prefer Elise) but can see the appeal. I just don't think it flows well here.

    Theodora Grace for sure! It feels so elegant, classic and feminine, and hits a great balance of feeling both sweet and strong. I'm not a fan of Elsie in general. Something like Theodora Ellen, Theodora Elin (ee-lin) or Theodora Elise would be nice, but I'd still pick Theodora Grace over any of those.

    I think Theodora Grace flows better! Elsie is a sweet name but I don't think it works well in this particular combo. Teddy Grace is a cute nickname!

    Grace pairs much better than Elsie to me. And yes, Teddy Grace is adorable!
