    I voted Gail. The first name ends with a nasal N sound as far as I know in Korean, so some glottal sound like G would compliment perfectly imo.

    I like the simplicity of “Rose”, plus the “O” sound will mimic the “O” sound that the last name ends in.

    Sage is my top choice, followed by Rose. They both flow well!

    I realize this is hard to predict, but what is the likelihood your child would want to be known only by her English middle name in at least certain social situations?

    If you think there is a possibility I would go based on how only the middle and last names sound together as well.  Based on that I would probably avoid duplicating the O sound with Rose.  Gail just sounds middle-aged to me, not in a cute retro way that some names comes back.  I’d probably be inclined to go with Laurel or Pearl (old ladyish but in a more retro way these days), but it might depend on the beginning sound of the last name.

    If it seems unlikely, then I would just pick what you like because it’s pretty rare (except when yelling at your kid) that they will be called by first middle and last.

    I vote Sage. Rose just reminds me of an old woman/ golden girls.
