Baby #4

Hi! We are expecting our fourth little one on Jan. 7th, and this time it's a girl. Our other three are Kingston Tate, Beckett Murphy, and Ann Morgan. (Ann morgan is a double name)

We want it to be a double name, and we want Macon to be in it. Help!

Congrats!

Paired with Macon, I would use something super-girly. I also think Macon would work better as the second name, but if you want a little more separation between the girls' names, it might need to be the first.

Anyway, I think some names that would sound pretty with Macon would be Calla, Sophia, Bria, Callista, Elora, Eva, Jada, Jenna, Nora, Nola, Vera, and Willa.

Hope there's something here you like!

Ella Macon, Lia Macon, Macon Jane, Macon Wren, Macon Eva, Tessa Macon, Macon Tessa...

I would personally go with Macon as the first name, as it is very similar to Morgan and might end up being too matchy with her sister.

If you want people to consistently use the double name, I'd keep the full name to three or four syllables and make sure it rolls off the tongue easily. I love pairs like Ella Macon, Macon Jane etc partially for this reason (that they flow together to make a beautiful double name). It's also sweet to have some contrast between a sweet traditionally feminine name and a more unisex, less common surname-name.

Good luck! :)

I think that if you really want a double-barrelled name which includes Macon, the second name should have one syllable.  Names with 4 or more syllables almost invariably get shortened, and wtih a double-barrelled name it's probable that one would get dropped.  Also - this is just a personal opinion - I think Macon should go first, simply becuase it sounds like a surname to me.  I would think a "Sue Macon" would be first name Sue, last name Macon.  Putting Macon first classifies it as a given name to me.

 

Anyway...

 

Macon Sue

Macon Joy (or Joyce)

Macon June

Macon Eve

Macon Sage

Macon Rose

Macon Belle

Macon Tess

Macon Kay

Macon Elle

Macon Fay

Macon Jo

Macon Sloan

Macon Paige

 

etc.
