    Adair as a mn for Mary?

    What are your thoughts on Adair as a middle name for Mary? I have been following someone on in Instagram, her daughter's name is Mary Paisley, I love the traditional first name with an offbeat middle.

    If not, please leave me some more suggestions, thanks!

    I like what you’re thinking, but the ‘air’ sound in both Mary and Adair are a little too close together for my liking.

    I thought it seemed nice while reading it, but when saying it aloud quickly I almost wanted to say Mary Adairy. Mary Adair is nice though

    Mary Adair isn’t the best flow as they share the same “air” sound but we seldom say our first and middle names together so they would be fine. Other suggestions.....

    I like Mary Adair. Makes me think of a great female detective like Nancy Drew.

    What about ....

    Mary Nell is my favorite combo. I went to college with someone who went by Mary Grey which sounds lovely.

    I like the idea of Mary Adair a lot but the repeating "air" sounds bother me a bit.
