I am due in 8 weeks with a little sister for Paxton Cruz and Harper Lily, at this stage we are pretty sure she will be called Willow but are having trouble coming up with a middle name. My suggestions were

Willow Lux or Willow Lane

but DH shot them both down  rolleyes.gif , I would prefer to avoid any botanical names (Rose, Heather, Ivy etc.)

please help original.gif

I like nature names to be matching. Maybe another one syllable nature name - one syllable so it flows nicely.

Tree?

Please not Lux or Lane.

What about a normal name like:

Elisabeth?

If you like names starting with L, I think Willow Louise sounds nicer than Willow Lux or Willow Lane.

I think that Willow Lux and Willow Lane don't seem to flow properly, they seem as if they have been cut too short.

Also the "L" sound on these shorter names (Lux and Lane) seems difficult to say out loud after Willow. However Louise doesn't seem to have this problem.

An L initial might be a little trippy following Willow.

Suggest:

Willow Blair

Willow Pearl

Other suggestions:
Willow Catherine
Willow Cassidy
Willow Estelle
Willow Sariah
Willow Tallulah
Willow Piper
Willow True
Willow Celeste
Willow Ramona
