I haven't posted a list up in a while, and I don't have one I want to post today, but I would like some opinions on some names and combos I've been crushing on lately. I love double middle names, but recently I've been liking one middle a little bit more.

Amoret - Prn am-or-ray. I found this in my name book, and I'm really loving the sound of it. At the moment I have it in the combo Amoret Vesper, but I'm not sure I love it.

Elowen - I came across this on Nameberry, and I love how floaty and elegant it feels. I have it in the combo Elowen Hero right now, which I think is adorable, but does Hero work for a girl?

Austen - I'm not a huge fan of Austin on boys, but I love Austen for a girl. The literary connection is great, and I love the spelling and sound of the name. Do you think it works on a girl? What would you pair it with?

Arabella Elise - I'm crushing so hard on this combo right now. Do you think it flows?

Rafferty - I fell in love with this the moment I saw it in my name book lol. It has a handsome fell to it, but at the same time it feels fresh and new. What combos would you put it in?

Rupert - Love it's charm, it's handsome sound, and I love how the whole name feels. It just has a feeling that I love, and it's hard to explain lol. What names would go as middles for Rupert?

Reeve - I think I prefer this as a middle, but if I found the right name then I'd love it as a first. What are your thoughts?


Any opinions/suggestions would be great. If you want to suggest middles then combos with one or two middles are greatly appreciated. I appreciate there's quite a few names here, so just do what you can/want to.

Thanks so much :-)

BOY have you got some Beauties!! :D  My favourites are:

 

Elowen - this is EXQUISITE!!  Is it pronounced the way it is written El-oh-wen??  What does it mean?

 

Arabella Elise - LOVE IT!!!!! :D  But then maybe I'm biased as my GORGEOUS Baby Girl is Arabella Soraya Hope!  LOVE Elise as a MN though too!!!  BEAUTIFUL combination!! :)

 

Rafferty - WOW!!  This is SUCH a COOL Boy's Name!!  What does it mean please?  I LOVE Raff as a nickname too!!  I would do:

 

Rafferty James

Rafferty Ford

Rafferty Fergus

 

Rupert - One of my ALL TIME FAVOURITE Boys Names!!!  If Arabella had been a Boy (and Anthony hadn't insisted on Johann Sebastian-HIS All Time Favourite) then she would have been Rupert Carrington Anthony or Rupert Anthony Carrington!!

 

Oops Bella is awake, have to go...

Thanks SunnyMummy :-)

According to Nameberry, Elowen is Cornish and means Elm, and it is pronounced just like it's written.
Rafferty is Irish, and means floodtide, abundance, or prosperity.
From your suggestions I like Rafferty James the best.

Thank you again :-)

I love the sound of Amoret, but the spelling kinda turns me off it :( I can't think of a "better" way to spell it, but idk. Amoret Vesper sounds really mysterious and attractive, I like!

 

I really like Elowen! Hehe I think I came across the name first on Nameberry as well :P I think Hero sounds a little more masculine though. 

 

I'm a bit the opposite, sorry! Austen feels all masculine to me <3 

 

Arabella Elise is beautiful, though the -ella and El- kinda clash. I like it anyway though, both are just such flowy and girly names!

 

I've seen the name Rafferty around, but its not grown on me yet :( I can see it being used now adays without being too strange though. Fresh and new, indeed <3 

 

Rupert is such a cute name, but a GP for me. A name I'd adore seeing used on someone elses kid! Also makes me think of Family Guy, hehe <3 Hmm... Rupert George, Rupert Henry, Rupert Tobiah, Rupert Noah, Rupert Loclan, Rupert Holden, Rupert Bennett, Rupert Hamish, Rupert Samson, Rupert Wilson. I particularly love Rupert Hamish actually! It sounds soft but still masculine <3 

 

I like Reeve, it definitely fits well as a middle name :) Mainly cause its short and simple. But it could make a fine first name as well. I almost think of it in the same way as Rose.. just fits great with many names as a middle but doable and cute as a first. Benno Reeve / Reeve Benno, Phineas Reeve / Reeve Phineas, Paxton Reeve / Reeve Paxton, Xander Reeve / Reeve Xander?

 

I hope this helps!! :)

Thanks for your opinions Remy :)

 

From the combos you suggested, I like: Rupert Noah, Rupert Samson, Rupert Wilson, Phineas Reeve, and Xander Reeve.

 

Thanks again!

Amoret - Love it as a middle

Elowen - I can't even tell you how much I love it. I love "-wen" names.

Austen - Love. Esp as a middle. I am not a fan of it on boys, either, but I love it on girls. Only this spelling, too :) I like Austen Lily

Arabella Elise - I am not a fan of ending a's into beginning e's (personally don't like the flow), but I've heard much worse. Both names are adorable, I love their feel. I think I'd like it better with another name inbetween, like Arabella June Elise.

Rafferty - this is one I personally wouldn't use, but would LOVE to meet on another person's kid

Rupert - Not a fan, sorry :(

Reeve - Hmm. I like it, but I prefer Reeves.
