DH & I have had a boy name & a girl name picked out for quite a while.  Boy name is Arlo & girl name is Harper.  They may not be everyone's cup of tea, but we love them  wub.gif

What we need help with middle names to go with these names. So far our favourites are:
Harper Annabel
Harper Clementine
Arlo Sebastian
Arlo William

I'm wondering if we've missed some other possible combos that we may like better, and thought now is the time to ask around.


To give you an idea of the kinds of names we considered, here are some from our short list:
Camille
Lucinda
Lucia
Saffron


Archer
Miller
Thom
Arden

Any suggestions for middle names?

My picks would be:

Harper Annabel (incase she wants to use a more feminine name when she is older)
Arlo Sebastian

Thanks for the suggestions. I just ran them by DH and seems Arlo Sebastian & Harper Annabel are still front runners unless we come across something else!

I don't particularly like Harper Clementine, but think that a name starting with a vowel after Harper is clumsy.  So, what about...

Harper Celeste
Harper Gillian
Harper Justine

Arlo Sebastian is ok, but some other suggestions...

Arlo Skylar
Arlo Blaise
Arlo Corrin

I don't think Annabel works with Harper unless it was the other way round.

I think Harper Camille and Arlo Miller work best.
