I'm due on Sept 21...so it could be *any* day now as I am already dialted to 3 and this is my 3rd child.
We do not know the gender of this baby and we've picked out a boy's name for sure but we've been struggling with a girl's name.
We've finally decided on the first name of Hannah for the baby if it's a girl, because we had so much trouble with choosing the first name hubs has decided to let me have full reign over the middle name.
This makes me nervous for several reasons, now since I have no rules I have no idea where to begin.
I do have some self-imposed stipulations:
1) the name needs to have 4, 5, or 6 letters
2) I don't want the middle name to sound like any of my other kid's names: Daniel Joseph and Amelia Elise (so no names like Danielle or Annelise)
3) I'd like to avoid anything that rhymes with Cherry or ends with the "ry" (like Rory) due to our last name
4) I also don't want anything that ends in the same sound as Hannah (like Matilda)
5) Since my name is Joslyn I would like to NOT use the name Lynn
6) She might end up having to go by this middle name if she's one of 16 Hannah's in her class going through school so nothing too out there (though I love the name Calliope, which doesn't fit my rules ;-) )
Thank you in advance for all your help!!
We've looked at middle names for a baby Hannah in another post. Here was the list I came up with for that baby, taking out the names that don't have 4, 5, or 6 letters:
In the original list I omitted Hannah Mae for sounding like "anime," and the mother omitted Hannah Belle for sounding like "Hannibal." I omitted Hannah Jo because it wasn't good with the surname, and it doesn't meet your requirement for number of letters so I've left it out of this list as well; I omitted Hannah Noelle for the surname reason, but that one would work for you. One commenter mentioned that "Hannah Claire" sounds like "Han Eclair."
I like Hannah Catherine and Hannah Margaret, but they're too many letters.
Without your surname, it's tricky to find more middle name options---but perhaps those will get you started.
