middle name for Claire?

So far we have:

Claire Elizabeth
Claire Elise (Elyse?)
Claire Abigail (more for style, H is not sold on Abigail as it's the name of his friend's DD)

Style is Biblical/classic, 2+ syllables.

  • Claire Elizabeth. It can be a bit hard to find names that flow well with Claire, and I very much prefer Clara. I'll try though. Claire Catherine Claire Alexandra Claire Emmanuelle Claire Evangeline Claire Naomi Claire Rebecca Claire Susannah Claire Magdalena Claire Margaret Claire Noelle Claire Veronica
    I'm not opposed to Clara, I think the right mn could convince me to switch. 

    I do like Naomi and Rebecca, thank you!

  • Our daughter is Claire Elizabeth, and I would say that well over 50% of all of the other little Claires we have met have also been Claire Elizabeths. Just something to think about...in hindsight I wish we had picked something a little more original for her middle name.

  • I am doing Claire Elizabeth. Elizabeth is a family name for me and DH and sounds great with Claire.

    We were going to do Claire Irene, but decided to flip my middle names around for my twins. I gave Isla the MN Irene.

    I thought both of my names were tough for good sounding middle names. GL to you.

  • I was going to recommend Elizabeth soon as I saw this.


    No periods due to 17 years of ballet and distance running after college.  Zero response to 2 months of Clomid, little response to Letrozole.  IUI left with 9 cysts = too many viable eggs due to age.  On to IVF.  Low dose of all meds still produced 37 mature eggs 12.6.11.  Froze due to overstimulation.  

    FET #1.1 1.22.12 BFN.   FET #1.2 2.22.12=GRACE! (and a vanishing twin).  

    Grace Katherine born 10.25.12 @ 36w6w 6#14oz 19.5".
    FET #1.3 3.2013 BFN FET#1.4 4.2013 BFN. Never tried a fresh transfer.  Let's try, despite 10 still frozen.  
    ER 6.26.13 27 mature eggs, slight overstim. ET   7.1.13 ectopic, FET 2.1  9.10.14   TRIPLETS!!  

    Boys born 3.18.14 @ 29w5d.  Andrew Jack 3#6oz 16", Grant Robert 3#9oz 16", Charles Phillip 3#7oz 17".

  • I love Claire! Far more than Clara, which somehow sounds sort of plain to me whereas Claire feels refined and classic. They are both great names, though.

    Claire Elizabeth was my first thought, so I vote for that, but other ones I like (some already suggested) are:

    Claire Emilia
    Claire Louise
    Claire Margaret
    Claire Augusta
    Claire Suzanne
  • Claire Calla
    Claire Carolyn
    Claire Danielle
    Claire Esther
    Claire Holly
    Claire Iliana
    Claire Jillian
    Claire Victoria
  • Claire Elizabeth! <3 

  • My sister's name is Claire and her MN is Beth. A one-syllable MN also sounds right to me! Especially if last name is multi-syllable.

  • I just posted this in another thread, but I just named my daughter Claire Anneliese.
