    Default Running through some middle names

    Just testing a few options out. What do you think? Anything you like better?

    Hmmmm... tough one Julie

    Daisy Anna doesn't sound right for me for some reason.

    I like Elaine best... but at the same time with the E sound at the end of Daisy and at the beginning of Elaine/Eleanor/Evelyn they kind of run into each other and that does make me hesitant... personally I'd probably be more inclined to find a middle name that didn't start with a vowel for that reason... but that's just me... you don't have to do what I'd do

    Are there family names you are considering/wanting to avoid?

    What about...

    Daisy Marie
    Daisy Rebekah
    Daisy Lynn
    Daisy Leanne
    Daisy Victoria
    Daisy Katherine

    Of all those I think Daisy Lynn is the best. For some reason I like a one syllable name with Daisy. I also like Daisy Ann.

    Eleanor and Anna are family names.
    I am stuck on Evelyn right now. Last night it was Louise!

    I like the idea of going with and E name. Both my and Dylann's middle name begin with E - but a soft E.
    I do want something with more than one syllable.
    I also want something more grown-up, traditional, sophisticated in case Daisy doesn't work for her as an adult.

    Marla - sorry nothing from your list strikes me! (Mostly because they are already used family names)

    I picked Evelyn just because I love that name. I do kind of agree with the PP that the E sound at the end of Daisy would make me want to pick a consonant for the first letter of the middle name. But I don't think it's bad with a vowel, I think it flows pretty well.

    Same question I asked to the previous thread's poster... How many syllables is your last name, and which syllable is accented?

    I kinda like Daisy Eleanor, but I'm a little bothered by the total contrast in name styles. I think the names flow really nicely together, but Daisy is so cute and young sounding and Eleanor is far more traditional and older sounding. But, since Eleanor has some family meaning to you, I do think the names flow very nicely with one another and could work well for your daughter.

    The more I think about it, the more I think that using Eleanor as the middle name would be a great choice because it would add a lot of classiness to the name because Daisy is on the cute side.

    I don't put too much into the flow with our last name only because chances are she will be changing it 1/4 of the way through her life! (No one would choose to keep this name!)

    But it begins with an S, two syllables, first syllable accented, ends with -er. For this purpose try using 'Swinger'

    Given your last name, I still think Daisy Eleanor flows well. It's a little less than ideal to me to have the middle name and last name end with the "r" sound, but the "or" and "er" ending sounds are different enough that it doesn't bother me.

    In general, I really like the name Evelyn, but for some reason I like the flow/sound combination of of Daisy El... more than I like Daisy Ev... For some reason, the "v" sound is awkward to me in that combo. Not sure why...
