Good middle name for Helen

I can't really think of any good names that go well with Helen. Our last name starts with H so I wouldn't want a middle name that starts with H but that's the only restriction I have.

    Helen was our baby boy's would-be girl name, and the middle name would have been Virginia. I think it goes well with long, flowery old names (Magnolia would work), or else a nice 2-syllable name with emphasis on the second (ie Marie).

    My last name starts with an H also, and honestly, the same initial think sounds cheesy to me. There is a H.ailey Holdman (not her last name, but a variation) in our family and it just sounds weird. Helen isn't my style of name, but it certainly is a nice name. If you really want to use it, I would use a middle name that doesn't have a soft beginning like the H sound (no N, S, M, soft C or G, etc) so it stands out more when you say it all together and the focus is drawn away from the matching first and last name initials.

    Suggestions:

    Bridgette
    Elizabeth
    Grace
    Tricia
    Patricia
    Zara
    Tiffany
    Cassidy
    Joanna/Joanne

    Good luck!

    I don't think anything is wrong with HH initials... I've made up a few scenarios, such as Helen Holmes, and it sounds fine to me (and that example also repeats the L sound in the middle!).
