Although FI and I are not ttc yet we were talking about names for our future kids and we have three picked out but only two middle names and are very lost on what the third middle name should be. My main issue is that the first two names have very a deep meaning to us and since the third name has no connection to our family and I want it to be awesome and unique. I have TONS of time to figure this out but I am stuck on the couch with a head cold and would love some good ideas Here are the names:
Alyssandra Renate- the first name has my name in it and the middle name is my closest grandmother’s name.
Keegan Joseph- The first name is FI’s closest cousin’s name and the middle name is my closest grandfather’s name
Kiera Elizabeth! I prefer the spelling to be KIERA because of that whole I before E thing, you know? I’m biased though since that is the name of my dog
@ShiftedLobster: Oooo I like that spelling better too, thank you! As for the name Elizabeth, it could be a contender because it’s so pretty and really works, my only issue is that it’s my aunt’s name. I love her dearly but I have 5 very dramatic aunts so I would have to decide if it’s worth all the drama :/
Any other ideas bees???? I’m still sick and bored
I like Keira Elizabeth! That’s pretty, but I hear you on the aunt drama.
Just wanted to pop in and say that I think “Keira” is the traditional spelling of the name, for whatever that’s worth. I think either way, people are going to mix up the i & e sometimes. It’s a beautiful name however you spell it.
Youve got your name and two grandparents on your side. Why not shop your husbands family a bit for the third?
@alyssaC: I like Kiera Elizabeth, I also like;
Kiera Guinevere (because I am a massive history nerd)
Kiera Lee (I knew these twins named Lee and Kiera growing up)
Kiera Knightly (yeah, I know. Couldn’t resist)
I think that names with three syllables work best with Kiera, especially if they don’t end in ‘a’. And maybe Kiera works better than Keira because that’s probably going to be a lot of inconvenience when she’s older because the first one is a more common spelling.
My childhood best friends name was Kyra (same name, dfiferent spelling) Evening Star. I somehow think thats not what you’re looking for though.
For some reason I like the sound of one syllable middle names with Kiera.
@SapphireSun: I tried because I felt kind of bad for taking over most of the names :/ sadly he doesn’t have a huge family and isn’t very close to many of them. Also a lot of the names in his family are more old fashioned or very common names so he doesn’t want to use any of them other than Keegan.
@BridieBea: I love some of your picks, especially Faye and I really like Guinevere, I would have never thought of it, maybe he will like it to. And FI already tried Kiera Knightly, but I shot that one down
@allyfally: Good choices, Nicole would be really pretty. Haha Evening Star is pretty but not the exact direction I’m going in lol
@6598731ssfse3: I kind of like the one syllable sound too, and have always loved roses
Kiera Madelyn (or however you choose to spell it)
