Hi everyone,
Could you offer me some assistance with a middle name for Eleanor.  We started with Eleanor grace but it’s such a common middle name.  Happy to hear other ideas x

Are there any family names you could use?

First name that popped into my head was Eleanor Louise 😊

I love Grace for a middle name. I would have used it for my third daughter but it's too similar to our surname.

It's popular because it's elegant, beautiful, timeless. Don't rule it out.

Eleanor Bridget
Eleanor Charlotte
Eleanor Kate
Eleanor Josephine
Eleanor Katharine
Eleanor Lucy
Eleanor Lillian
Eleanor Juliet

If I’d had a girl, and if DH had any taste, she’d have possibly been Eleanor Cara.

We have a baby daughter Eleanor and she is Eleanor Lily (family names).

Her great great grandmother and namesake is Eleanor Ruth. But we couldn’t use Ruth for other reasons.

Elizabeth or Mary? Can’t go wrong with the classics.

What wonderful taste you have The Magician. I named my only daughter Eleanor Katharine and it still sends a tingle up my spine when I say it and she's now an adult. I initially had people give a little strange "oh, that's an old name" when she was a babe as it wasn't popular at all when I chose it for her and some people were down right rude about my choice of spelling for Katharine, but I loved the way it looked and flowed with Eleanor. I love every one of your suggestions for middle names.

I have an Eleanor Alice. She tells me people who see her full name frequently comment on how much they like it.

Are there any family names you can use?

I'm a big fan of Grace and Rose because they are beautiful, timeless classics.

Also like;

Eleanor Charlote
Eleanor Ruby
Eleanor Margot
Eleanor Scarlett

or for something a bit more quirky, Eleanor James sounds lovely. Nora James is pretty cute too.
