Mary/May and middle name?
Desperately trying to figure out middle name to go with a first name of Mary, who will be called May. Things that go well with Mary don't seem to go as well with May, given the syllable difference, and I have a family member who likes to say both first and middle names together (case in point: my daughter Eve Louise is called just that-- both names-- by him) and I want to make sure that whether he goes with Mary or May when he refers to her (I will be nudging him towards May-- that's what we intend for her to always be called) that the middle name sounds good with it.
Ironically, Louise feels like it would be perfect-- but we used that with our other daughter when we thought she'd be our only girl (this is a surprise baby for us!) A little extra background: my late dad was named James, and I love the idea of honoring him somehow, but my husband just won't go for James for a girl in any way. Mary Jane is no good because it's slang for marijuana. I thought about Julia-- same first initial-- but May Julia doesn't sound great to me? I am a Kathleen by birth (a name my dad picked for me) so I am wondering about Kathleen? Mary Kathleen? Is that the most ultra-Irish name of all time?
Open to any ideas-- thanks!
