Baby Middle Names Advice

#1) Say your baby middle name ideas with the first and last name together. The ideal middle name should flow and not wrap your tongue up in knots.

#2) A middle name that begins with a different letter or sound than the first name ends with normally makes for a smoother name combination.

#3) Vary the number of syllables in each name. A long middle name can nicely compliment a short first and last name. A short middle name can smooth out a long first and last name combination. Whatever you do, don't string three long names together (unless you want your child to have difficulty filling out forms their whole life!)

Megan in North Backwoods USA
I'm looking for boy names that have legendary quality, are VERY unique. I like Celtic, Scottish, Latin, Irish, & Italian heritages. Middle names are also appreciated if u have ideas :) PLEASE no Robert, Thomas or Brandons. The siblings are Victoria Lisette, Athena Rhianon and Zack.
Baby Name Genie:
No need for some watery tart to throw a sword at you to name your child. Dub him Merlin Cahal for a truly legendary title.
Sonora in Nevada
Please help. I need an elegant female name that is not common yet not ugly. I need a name that sounds happy and joyful as well as strong and brave. It cannot sound like a boy name. It must be a girly name.
Baby Name Genie:
Your daughter is in for a merry childhood if these are the things you value. Look forward to Caroline Jolie making a joyful noise.
Ceylan Milor in Georgia
I'm expecting my first daughter soon, but I can't decide on a first name. I want something Turkish that means a type of animal. I don't care if it will be hard to spell or pronounce for Americans. It should start with a C. The middle name is Handan, after a relative. Last name Milor (Mee-lor).
Baby Name Genie:
There are few animals in this world more graceful than a gazelle. I give you the Turkish name Ceren Handan for your graceful daughter.
