    I'm at a loss with Mirabel

    I’ve had Mirabel at the bottom of my list for quite some time. With a little “?” behind it, even though I love it.
    And I say bottom of the list because its incomplete.
    It’s a name that I adore. It just holds so much charm for me. Its timeless and elegant, and so underused.
    However, I cannot find a middle name to suit it with our last name: Tucker.
    I feel like with a three syllable first name, and a two syllable surname, a one syllable (or maybe even two syllable) middle would be ideal.
    I just don’t like any of them very much.

    So far the only two I like are Mirabel Blake Tucker, Mirabel Chase Tucker, and Mirabel James Tucker. I also really like Mirabella. But I'm not sure if that would be a no-no considering my stepdaughter's middle name is Isabella... but then again I do not feel that it is fair and that I should allow my naming process to be hindered by her middle name. Her first name, yeah, but the middle name I feel is more grey territory. My fiance feels the same.
    I know Blake is unisex, and James is becoming unisex, but for whatever reason James just screams “boy” to me. But James would be her father’s name, so…. It would be fitting. And it sounds cute. I don’t know if my fiance would go for it, though, because its SO traditionally boy.

    Anyone have any suggestions? I’m at a loss.
    I feel like it could easily climb to the top of my list if I could find the perfect middle name.

    I'll try and think up some more gender-neutral middles if that's what you're into.

    I also think Mirabella would be fine to use. It's her middle name, and you could even spin it as a cool link between the two names, which may strengthen the half sibling bond, depending on how old your step-daughter is. If she's older,you could just ask her which she prefers of Mirabel and Mirabella.
    Mirabel Blaje sounds nice, and if James is too masculine, how about Jamie? It's a bit softer, and Mirabella Jamie sounds lovely
