Hello again! I posted awhile back with some pretty insane criteria for a baby name. Well... that all went out the window when DH kept dropping a name. He is adopted, and though he goes by his second name, his first official name is Alexander, given to him by his birth mother. We had plans to work it in if we had a boy... but having a girl, I sort of figured it was out.

Anyhow, long story short - baby girl will be Alexis. It's one of the only Alexander female names I can get behind, and while it's not my #1... or #100 name choice, it means a lot to DH. Aren't I a great wife?

I get naming rights over the middle name and any future children! Hooray!

So anyone want to help me out by suggesting a middle name? I know my daughter's middle name is oh so common, but that was to smooth her not very common at all first name. For Alexis I would like something less common to balance things out. Something 1-2 syllables. Our last name starts with a G and ends in an N if that helps!

Thank so much! I love all the advice I get from you ladies!
Thank you claire1979 for my cute new siggy!

I know you were thinking 1-2 syllables, and I know this is the name that the mother who let facebook users name her child ended up using, but I was thinking it would sound nice:

Alexis Melania
