We already have an Abigail Jean (Abby) and Evelyn Kate (Evie). Girl number three is arriving in a few weeks. We are 80% set on Norah but can't decide on a middle name. Which do you prefer?
Or open to other suggestions.

Norah Claire is wonderful.
I think a single syllable middle sounds the best, and matches your other DDs nicely.

I think a 3 syllable first name to match the others girls name and a 1 syllable MN
What about Bethany Grace, Cassandra, Caroline, Vanessa, Genevieve, Vivienne, Matilda, Natalie, Susannah, Penelope, Rebekah, Catherine, Isabelle, Josephine, Lillian, Sophia, Gabrielle, Juliet, Lenora, Leanore, Leanora, Norabelle, Noralee, Norabeth, Norajane, Noramae, Noralie
MN Claire, Grace, Beth, Faith, Anne, Joy, Hope, Mae, Ruth, Pearl

I actually prefer a middle name with more than two syllables.

Norah Grace or Norah Claire but I also like the idea of a 3 syllable name like her siblings.

I don’t think Norah matches the other two, doesn’t allow for the cutesie nickname Abby and Evie have.
As a previous poster has said, you need the three syllables:-

I'm also a fan of the 3 syllable middle name with Nora.
What about Nora Josephine?

Adore the name Adeline. Agree with previous suggestion that Eleanor (nn Norah) matches the sibset better.
Whichever way you go, I think they’re all lovely combinations.

I like Adeline too, but probably already having Abigail, I think a name with a different initial would be better
