Need a middle Name

We love the name Kahlen (pronounced Kay-len) for DD.  Thing is that we are stuck for a middle name.  Last name starts with H and is a first name, yes my husband pretty much has 3 first names.

Re: Need a middle Name

  • Are you stuck on the spelling for the first name? I like the first name, but can't imagine people pronouncing it as Kay-len. When I first saw it I pronounced it Kah-len (almost like Colin). With that aside here are some middle name ideas-











  • I like MCMoo23's suggestion for Elise. Marie also sounds good but it's my middle name so I'm biased lol
  • I agree with pp that at first glance I thought the name would be pronounced like Colin too because of the h.

    I would stick with something simple as the mn like June, Marie, Louise, Jane, Emily, Sarah, Rachel, Grace.

    I agree ? the h would make me say Kah-len, kind of like Colin. 

    Do you have any good family names to use as a middle name? With a modern name like Kahlen, I like a more classic middle name ? plunder your family tree for ideas.

  • It also makes me think Collin when I see Kahlen. 

    A classic middle name would be good - maybe something in the family.  I was thinking a longer middle name since the first name is 2 syllables.

    I pronounced it how you intended, but that may have been because I remember a Kahlen on ANTM. For a middle name:

    Kahlen Adele

    Kahlen Elizabeth

    Kahlen Rose

  • This makes me think of Kahlen Rondot, from America's Next Top Model, also! I liked her, so the name has positive connotations. I like this, and I would pronounce it like "Kay-lin."


    As long as your last name is longer than one syllable, I think a  one-syllable mn - one that's a bit "spunkier" to fit the spelling of the name - would probably sound best, or a two-syllable mn with the emphasis on the second syllable (like Kahlen Whitney).
