update: Middle name help

We went with Evangeline Eleanor Thanks for the help!!

Please help! OUr baby's first name will be Evangeline, but we need a middle name. I would love for it to be something "classy and beautiful"...with sort of an elegant sound. We've already used Isabella. I was thinking Victoria, but I just am not sold.

Any ideas?

ps-random...we live in HI so we were also thinking a hawaiian middle name would be fun if we could find the right one.

Re: Middle name help

I think Grace is perfect. Because the first name is so long a one syllable name would go best.

Before I read the pps I immediately thought Grace. Evangeline Grace is soooo beautiful! Claire is nice too or Rose, Hope, Marie, Belle

Don't do a long middle name that would be so long. Of course I'm one to talk, all my girls have two middle names! LOL

Re: Middle name help

I like Grace too, and Hope, Faith, Rose, Marie, and May... But they are way overused IMO for middle names. Google any girl's first name, even a rare one, with one of those middle names, and you will get hundreds of thousands of hits... I am a big fan of two middle names too, and combo names - like Marybeth or Annalynn... Even two common middle names can be combined to form a more unique middle name. With Evangeline, you can choose a longer, equally strong middle name, don't limit yourself to one syllable (says she who has the same number of syllables as your DD will have in her first name, and two, 2-syllable middle names, and LOVES all of them, especially in combination :-)

But it's soooo pretty!

Says me (Tanya Grace), mother of Savannah Elizabeth Grace so I might be just a tad biased!
