I've always LOVED the name Reese for a boy..never really liked unisex names on girls BUT I was just recently visiting my cousin when her friend named "Reese" came over, and I realized it really does fit a girl and I think I found my perfect girl name. SO says he likes it too..the only problem I have is finding a middle name. I want something feminine but I can't find anything I like.

So far I've thought of- Reese Gabrielle,Reese Nicole,Reese Noelle and Reese Isabelle. Last name is Etzinger.

Any suggestions would be appreciated,and I would also love your input on the name

I'm not a fan, but in general, I don't like surnames and boys' names on girls. Reese reminds me of peanut butter candy.

Could you use it as a nickname for something that has that sound in it, like Marisa, Teresa, etc?

I'm not really sure about middle names for it, but I wanted to say that I love the name Reese for a girl. My cousin's little girl is named Reese and of course there is Reese Witherspoon. It does remind me of the candy but I like "sweet" sounding names anyway.

I think Reese is adorable on a girl. I think if you love it and your SO has approved you should definitely go for it! I like Reese Gabrielle and Reese Noelle. Good luck.

I'm usually not a fan of unisex names on girls, but I DO like Reese. Not for myself, but it is one of those names I would think was darling on somebody else's child. I would definitely go with a more feminine mn to balance out the unisex fn.

Reese Brielle
Reese Isabella
Reese Juliette
Reese Linnea
Reese Lauren
Reese Natalia
Reese Viviana

I think Reese Isabelle flows nicely with your last name.

I usually don't care for unisex names, but Reese is an exception. I think it is great for a girl, but I wouldn't use it for a boy. I like all of the MNs you suggested. Reese Gabrielle reminds me of the volleyball player Gabrielle Reece, though.

Go for it!
