SHORT MIDDLE NAMES FOR GIRLS

Forget the rule that short first names should only go with long middle names and vice versa. 

You can pair a short first name with a one-syllable girl middle name if you so desire. For instance, I think Lexi Rose is cute! And it bucks this rule.

You can pair any name you wish, really. It’s your baby after all but following the tips at the very end of this post will help you make sure you cover all the basics and not pick a short girl middle name you’ll later regret.

Tips For Choosing A Good Female Middle Name

1. Choose a meaningful middle name.

For instance, if your baby is a rainbow baby, you might want her middle name to reflect that e.g Hope, Iris.

Also, consider the meaning of the middle name. Do you want your baby’s middle name to convey a certain emotion, idea, character? 

2. The flow of names is important.

How well do the first, middle and last names flow together? Try to avoid overly rhyming names. These might be cute when your child is a baby but your child won’t be a baby forever.

3. Consider your baby’s full initials.

This study shows that positive name initials lead to a longer life. So, you may consider giving your baby a positive acronym 

Remember, you might get monogrammed baby gifts.

4. Say the names out loud.

You might like how the name looks on paper, only to discover you don’t quite like the sound of it.

5. Consider your family naming traditions if you have any

Some families have traditions where any girl child is given the middle name, “Pearl” or “Rae” for instance.

However, don’t be too scared to buck traditions that don’t work for you. It is your child after all.

6. Don’t rush the process.

Finding a name you love can take some time. Don’t be in a rush. You don’t want to regret the name you chose after your baby’s birth is registered.
