Middle Name Help~ Ella What???

I need help!! In case we find out next week that our little bean is a girl, I need a middle name for her!

We are planning to name the baby (if it's a girl) Ella or Ellison. The last name is Meserve (Muh-serve).

DS's name is Emmitt Louis.

I don't like REALLY out there stuff, but I also don't like really common stuff like Lynn or Marie.

So...any ideas??

Re: Middle Name Help~ Ella What???

Somehow I ended up with two friends that don't know each other and live 1500 miles from each other that both named their DD Ella Gray. I think it's pretty cool - not too out there but definitely not too normal.

Single syllable names seem like they'd work best, like Jane or Kate.

I think long middle names for girls are so pretty. Michelle is a great middle name and differerent but classy and princess sounding! If perhaps you wanted to go with the same initials as your son why not Ella Leanna or Ella Loraine. Good luck!

Ella Claire is awfully cute. Ellison Claire would even work if we decide to use Ellison instead of Ella.

I like Marie for Ella.
For Ellison, I like Kate.

Personally, if the first name is short, longer middle names sound good to me. But if the first name is long, shorter middle names sound good to me (like Ellison Claire as a PP mentioned I believe.)
