My husband and I are debating potential girl names. We are having a hard time deciding one of the middle names and trying to decide if the flow of the names matters more than necessarily choosing the name we like the most. How much does flow really matter?
First and third names are already fixed for family reasons so please don’t comment on them. The second name has to start with an A if anyone wants to suggest any alternatives! Our surname has two syllables.
Dulcie Adelaide Henrietta (this is husband’s least favourite but I like it and have dear relatives who live in Adelaide. I used to want it as a first name but husband vetoed it).
Dulcie Ann Henrietta (a family name from my side, although I have asked my Mom’s opinion and she doesn’t care if I maintain the tradition. I think it flows the best but it’s the name I like the least. My husband’s favourite). Could also be spelled Anne.
Dulcie Andrina Henrietta (Quite a mouthful and worst flow but we both just love the name).

I love the name Adelaide, but with the first and third name both being 2+ syllables I think the simplicity of Anne complements the others really nicely.
Plus Anne is a beautiful classic name in it’s own right.

Does she need to have two middle names? Dulcie Henrietta (lastname) sounds beautiful and complete.
If you’re set on two middles, something short would probably be best. I couldn’t find any other (common enough to be recognisable) one syllable girl names beginning with A, but some other short options could be Alice, Ava or Adele.

yes, the child will have two middle names because of family tradition on both sides. If it’s a boy, it will have the middle names Henry (hence Henrietta for a girl), and Andrew. Thanks for your suggestions.

I love Dulcie Anne Henrietta! It flows the best and strikes me as both unusual and traditional.

Anne, spelt with the ‘e’. I really wouldn’t choose another 2 syllable name, let alone any of the 3 syllable ones a pp suggested.

I like it with Ann without the e, because two names in a row that end in an e looks a little matchy matchy to me.
