For those who have read my previous name post we have decided to use Ariana but we are now stuck on a middle name.

We like Ariana Jade (DP likes it more than me I'm a bit so so on it) and Ariana Violet.

Any other suggestions would be fantastic.

TIA

I have an Ariana Jade, who has nicknames Ari, AJ and banana (as her younger sister couldn't say Ariana).
Sorry can't give you any better middle name as I think we got the perfect combination.

I saw this in "We are discussing" and before I even opened the thread, Ariana Jade came to mind.

We won't be using Ari as a middle name because someone else in the family may one day have a girl and they want the nickname Ari...

It's a long story.

Ariana is lovely. I'd go with a short middle name like

Grace (though very common)
Kate
Claire

Ariana Diana/Di

Ariana Alena

Hi  waves.gif  wink.gif
love Ariana Jade. Flows really nicely.

Like both your options but think that a one syllable middle name flows slightly better (though I actually prefer the name Violet).

Other suggestions:
Kate
Beth
Claire
Fay
Faith
Jane
Maeve
Niamh/Neve
Quinn

Grace & Rose also flow well but not sure if you want such a common middle name..

I like Grace but too common. Jade flows really well but seems to be getting very popular and I'm not in love with jade as a name. I like Violet because its different.

Between DP and I nothing here springs out.

I like short middle names to go with it as well. Last name will be Martin as well.

Ariana Paige?

#16 Ingrid the Swan

Posted 29 December 2012 - 10:22 PM

I also think a one syllable MN flows best - especially as you have a two-syllable surname.

How about:

Ariana Blair
Ariana Brynn
Ariana Faith
Ariana Fleur
Ariana Kay
Ariana Quinn
Ariana Wren

Hope
Joy
Jewel
Rose
Brooke

Claire
Jean
Leigh/Lea
Lynn
Sue
Ruth

One syllable would be my choice too. I haven't seen these in the thread, I don't think...

Ariana Blythe
Ariana Clare (this is cheating, I saw Claire... but I'm fond of Clare too)
Ariana Rae
Ariana Fern
Ariana Gwen
Ariana Lark
Ariana Lee

#20 WithSprinkles

Other one syllable girl's names:


Pearl
Dawn
Bree
Hope
Lynn
Brooke
June
Skye
Gwen
Love
Eve
Joy
Anne
Rain
Sue
Sage
Ruth

When I saw this name, my first thought was that Skye would go nicely with that happy.gif

Good luck with the decision, Ariana is a gorgeous name.

#22 Feral_Pooks

Posted 30 December 2012 - 09:18 AM

I love the suggestions already of

Eve
Sage
Grace
Faith

I would add

Lenore
Celeste
Estelle
Louise
Fiona
Sophia
Lucia
Celine
Madeline

Glad you're using the name, it's gorgeous. I too think a short mn would suit so I'd lean towards Jade over Violet even though I much prefer Violet. I like the PP suggestion of Jewel.
