    Middle name for Eleanor

    We had finally settled on a name, it was a miracle! Eleanor Grace, which we thought was feminine and timeless.

    Then I woke up in the middle of the night and realized that her initials would be EGG, since our last name begins with a 'G'. Now my husband is anti-Grace, although I could let it go.

    Here are a few of our ideas, but we're not in love with any of them:

    Eleanor Catherine
    Eleanor Adrienne
    Eleanor Anne
    Eleanor Quinn (family surname several generations ago)

    If you love the sound of Grace you could try:

    Eleanor Chase

    My grandmother's name is Eleanor Mae...always thought it was so beautiful. And how cute is Ella Mae or Ellie Mae? It just rolls of the tongue and I picture a beautiful sweet little girl.

    I grew up with the initials ODD so I agree that it's somewhat important to consider initials! However, EGG isn't so bad. If you really love Eleanor Grace I say go for it!

    Eleanor Catherine: very pretty, and has the classic feel you're looking for.

    Eleanor Adrienne: these don't seem to fit. Adrienne (on a girl at least) feels pretty modern to me

    Eleanor Anne: another lovely choice; I like the 3-1 syllable sound.

    Eleanor Quinn: I love Quinn, but with a name ending in -r I think you might need a middle that's a little softer.

    How about:

    Eleanor Jane (love this!)
    Eleanor Celeste
    Eleanor Louise
    Eleanor Violet
    Eleanor Alice
    Eleanor Frances
    Eleanor Cecile

    (I also love the suggestion of Eleanor Mae!)
