so DH nixed my favorite boy name!!! I really loved the name Mason. Before we were actually serious about TTC, I asked him if he liked ___ name. He said he liked Mason but didn't like Makena/Makenna which I adore. So now that we are serious and TTC, he really thought about it and decided Mason was out (so sad) but he said Makena was fine!!! Yea!! I love the name Makena. He likes Nolan for a boy...lol..and we were watching the Simpsons the other night and he asked me if I liked the name Barthalamew (if I can even spell it right...basically just Bart) , and he was Completely Serious!! I'm like...uh NO!! So anyway I'm trying to come up with some middle name ideas for Makena. I would really love to use some form/version of fam. names. So how are these?
Makena Sue (lately this is my fav..very cute I think..Susan/Sue is my mother's name and she would feel very honored that we used her name since it is kinda old-fashioned and not one you hear frequently)
Makena Isabelle (also one of my fav's. Belle is my grandmother's nn. Belle is already taken for a mn on the other side, but I love Isabelle and the fact it has "belle" in their for my grandmother)
Makena Elisabeth (my mn is beth, and I think Elisabeth sounds better than plain Beth)
Makena Kate (my sis's name is Katherine/Katie, she would feel honored as well)
Makena Elise (no fam. significance, just sounds pretty I think)
Makena Jane (has kind of a nice ring to it, I have a Great-Aunt Jane, and it is also my sis's mn)
Makena Irene (this is just okay, this is my mom's mn)
Makena Aubrie (what do you think of this?? kinda just made it up..I do have a sil name Audrie though)
Makena Joy (nice sounding kinda, I have a cousin with mn of Joy)
Makena Breann (I like this alot I think, is it too much though?)
Makena Nicole (no fam. sign.)
Any other more classic sounding mn suggestions??

First off I love the name Mckenna (spelled that way, but your spelling is cute too!). These are my favourites of the ones you have...:

Makena Isabelle
Makena Elisabeth
Makena Elise
Makena Joy

Makena Breann (I like this alot I think, is it too much though?) --> Just wanted to say that I love the names seperately but I don't think they work well together, I agree its a bit too much.

I love Makena Sue. I tend to think that too many syllables is not necessarily a good thing, so this just fits!
