Middle name that goes with Rachel?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Thought I would get some suggestions. Last name begins with B and ends in N. I was looking for something simple, beautiful, and that really flows. Can anyone help?

Thanks!

How many syllables is the last name? What are the vowel sounds?

LOL on the OUCH thing!

Hm, I think a longer middle name (3 syllables) would be nice, and flow well. BTW, I love the name Rachel! So classic and beautiful.

I'd avoid hard consonants, I think vowels would be a better start to the name, it would flow better w/ the hard "B" and "Ch" sounds.

Evaline? Olivia? My brain isn't functioning too well right now!

Evaline

Oh very pretty

Of course the first thing that comes to mind is Rachel Ray from the cooking show. But, obviously not that.

Excellent name. My oldest is a Rachel, Rachel Eileen (Eileen after my Mum).

I think that Rachel Elizabeth is a great name.

My second child is Julie Elizabeth Ruby.

My name was very nearly Rachel Susan. Always thought it was pretty, even though it didn't turn out to be my name.

My Grandma was Rachel Ann . My sister Julie and I are still fighting over who gets to use the name.

Thanks so much mamas for all the great names. Before we found out it was a girl, all I had was a list of girl names, and hardly no boy names except Preston, Collin, and Avery. Everyone is asking me what girl names have you picked, and the first and only one I can remember is Rachel, so I am thinking that this will be here name.

I also was thinking the middle name of Deborah, Rachel Deborah. It is my aunt's name, and even though she lives so far, she has always been such a support, and has been the person I have looked up to all my life, as I do not have to much family support these days.

But keep the middle names coming maybe something will click. I know that names to some people should come natural, but I have always loved having other people join in the fun, sometimes that special name just pops, and someone helps you on your journey to find it.

I'm partial to Rachel Ellen, since that's what I heard my whole life.

I also like Rachel Elisabeth.

But, I think a family name is appropriate for a middle name, so my favorite for your daughter is Rachel Deborah.

Since my name is Rachel Anne I think that is just perfect....
I have always loved my name btw,it is a classic name that never sounds trendy.

I grew up with a Rachel Amanda, so I'm partial to that combination.

My name is Rachel Elizabeth and I think that's a nice combo.

I'm also a redhead. Are there a lot of redheaded Rachels out there or something?

Rachel Elizabeth and Rachel Ellen were both almost my name. Mom had a brain fart right after the birth and named me Elizabeth Ellen. :LOL

Rachel is a great name. And some of these suggestions, I never would have thought of.
