Suggestions on Middle name for our Baby Girl- Please help

Jackie - posted on 10/09/2013 ( 5 moms have responded )




Hi! We are torn between our little girls 1st name to be either Madeline or Addison, but when it comes to middle names my husband and I don't agree. So would love some outside thoughts without having to share our ideas to our family just yet.
Madeline Juliet, Madeline Ava, Madeline Lily, maybe even Madeline James (after husband's father, but not sure if that's weird to have a boys middle name).
Addison Lily, Addison Juliet, Addison James (obviously same concern as above)
OR any other middle name suggestions would be appreciated. :)

I think it will depend on how you pronounce Madeline, e.g. LYNN or LINE. If LINE, Madeline Lily. That's my favorite, but Maddy for short seems way more spunky and interesting. As far as Addison, I dunno, maybe I've had enough with the -son names already..

*Potentially unwanted advice ahead! Warning! Just a thought!* People dig two syllables or less. It's easy for teachers, too, which they appreciate to the point of actually liking your child more. I swear on my heart it's true.

I think James would be a little strange - it will sound like a surname, not a middle name.

I personally like Ava, then Juliet. I've always felt Lily was a little bit of a filler name, like Rose.

I prefer Madeline over Addison as well.

I like Madeline/Addison James too. has a good ring, but with your last name it has a different tone.
