We like the name Aria for a girl but can't come up with a middle name...

Are there any names with meaning that you would want to consider?  I find that family names or names with other significance tend to work well in the middle position.

Hints on what you are looking for in a middle name would also be helpful.  Do you prefer something that is the same style as Aria?  In that case, I might suggest names like Lily, Elliana, Luna, Juliet or Mina.

Personally, I find Aria very fluid sounding. I think something short & snappy would work really well with it.  Clare, Kate, June, Brooke.

Classic names could also work well, and would provide her with more options if she were to ever want to experiment with her name a bit.  Katherine, Margaret, Caroline, Violet

Aria Wen is the first think that comes to mind, but that might be because there is a girls name Arianwen. 

Aria goes with tons of name it just depends on what you like.  what have u you crossed off your list, or what suggestions have u and your husband shot down?do you have anything at all remaining on the list?

Aria Ella

Aria Evangeline

Aria Eden

Aria Hollis

Aria Rose

I personally like names beingn with E for middles names on this name.

I agree with a previous poster that family names are great choices for the middle name position.  Stylistically, I think that I would avoid something too fluid with Aria.  I like short, brisk choices.

Aria Kate

Aria Claire (I like the hard, percussive consonant paired with Aria)

Aria Grace

OR You could make the whole name flowy and fluid, in which case I like

Aria Marie

Aria Elise

Aria Elizabeth

 

Good luck!

I think it is a potentially happy convergence between your first two suggestions actually -- a lot of grandma names are more dense and consonant-clustery... and that's part of what makes them current not-entirely-fashionable, but it means they can pass the "sounds good as a unit" test with Aria's liquid sounds. For example, Aria Ruth or Aria Mildred kind of works to honor a favorite great-aunt. Using an exinct family surname offers similar potential, though I'd stay away from profession names because Aria is also a noun as well as a name.

I like Aria Claire but then I realized that some people might call her Aria Claria. Just a thought!

I know of an Ar*a June, and I've always thought it was as stunning combo.

I would go soft and classic.

My very first thought for it was Aria Grace. I think the soft, smooth, single-syllable name complements Aria very nicely. I also liked the suggestion of an above commentor of Aria June, which made me think Aria Jade. Someone suggested Aria Ella but I personally find the double -a endings offputting, though I do think Aria Elle, Aria Ellie, or Aria Elizabeth would be gorgeous. So those are three options. More information on your tastes, potential restrictions, and even surname would be helpful, though.
