I love Flora. Was my grandmothers name. But love Flor even more (my neice from argentina is named Flor and she is so beautiful!)

I do love Grace too since it was my grandmothers twin.

Evangeline Flor is my vote and surprisingly on my list of girl names for our next babe.

Marie is both classic and common. Doesn't have to be one or the other.

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 :-)
Unless your like me and want to yell the first and middle name when you mean business. "Nicholas Benjamin" has been a mouthful for me at times.

I guess it depends on what you mean by common. My middle name is Marie but I don't know of anyone in my generation who has used Marie for their child's middle name. For me, Marie is "common" because it was very popular for a period of time. In my experience, if your middle name is Marie you were born in the 80s (or earlier.) I see Grace as classic because I would not associate it with a particular decade, it is more timeless. A name that will never go out of style.

Marie has been topping middle name charts for over 50 years! It's not just for 80s babies.

Re: Middle name help

My daughter's first name is Grace. I almost didn't give it to her because the name had blasted in popularity, but it felt like it fit - and it so does!

Another vote for Evangeline Grace. Who cares how common it is. Those names are beautiful together.

Others:

Evangeline Margaret (or Marjory)
Evangeline Sue
Evangeline Elloise
Evangeline Dee

I was just sharing my experience, not statistics. Most of my friends growing up had the same middle name as me, Marie. I grew up in NY & PA. I have yet to meet a kid near the ages of my children (6 yrs and under) with the middle name Marie. We have lived in several states since having kids (NY, GA, CA, HI, etc) and meet a lot of people in the military. I just don't hear it anymore.

I've never seen a middle name chart, link me? I have seen the list of first names that is released every year.
