pretty please!! we have our first name definitely picked out, and we think we have the middle name picked out, but i'm not 100% sold on it yet. we want the middle name to start with A...any ideas? we don't want anything popular.

DD1 has an old family (Scottish) name as her middle name: Alafair.

From alternativebabynames.com:
Alafair: A girl's name. A lovely feminine name of unknown meaning.
First seen in the early 1700's in Scotland and England.

I also really like Avery.

Good luck!
