Need a middle name for Hanna?

Hi there! We are proudly expecting our second daughter in about 11 weeks! We've decided to name her Hanna, but we're encountering some difficulty with a middle name.

We had chosen three names that we loved, however they all started with A, thus making her initials HAM - I'm sure you can see the problem. It doesn't bother me so much, but I worry when she starts school, that she will be teased. (Thoughts on this?)

I'm looking for a traditional name (preferably 3 syllables). Unfortunately the names we love are already taken by family members, and DH does NOT want to "re-use" any of the following: Elizabeth, Carolyn, Katherine, or Isabel.

Everyone suggests Grace or Marie, but my other daughters middle name is Grace, and we already have a Marie in the family. I also don't like trendy names like Nicole, Claire etc.

Thanks in advance!!

Ps. I know what people can be like here, so please no comments about the spelling - yes, Hanna is an actual name, not just some made-up version of spelling it. There IS a difference between Hanna & Hannah. ;)

    Hanna is a lovely name and the spelling to me is more feminine. As for middle names, using A names wouldn't be terrible, not many friends would know her middle name anyway (unless she told them or your call you by her first and middle name), therefore they wouldn't know her initials are HAM, so if you guys really like the A middle names, I say go for it! :) But if you don't what her initials to be HAM, other suggestions include:

    Hanna Eloise

    Hanna Madeline

    Hanna Avery

    Hanna Margaret

    Hanna Meredith

    Hanna Evelyn

    Hanna Lillian

    Hanna Kathleen

    Hanna Victoria

    Hanna Beatrice

    Hanna Adelaide

    My favorites are :

    Hanna Evelyn

    Hanna Adelaide

    Hanna Madeline

    Hope this helps and good luck! :)

    I love Hanna. I know one though, so it is unusable for us.

    There are lots of traditional middle names (3 syllables) that would go well. I listed them below in alphabetical order in case you have a letter preference. I also didn't list any that start with A-:

    Hanna Beatrice

    Hanna Bethany

    Hanna Cassandra

    Hanna Cordelia

    Hanna Charlotte

    Hanna Christina

    Hanna Danielle or Hanna Daniella

    Hanna Eleanor

    Hanna Elouise

    Hanna Evelyn

    Hanna Evangeline

    Hanna Gabrielle

    Hanna Jaquelyn

    Hanna Joselyn

    Hanna Josephine

    Hanna Lillian

    Hanna Lucia

    Hanna Margaret

    Hanna Margery or Hanna Marjorie

    Hanna Meredith

    Hanna Priscilla

    Hanna Rebecca

    Hanna Roselyn

    Hanna Sabrina

    Hanna Selina

    Hanna Tabitha

    Hanna Vivienne

    I personally think that Hanna Margaret sounds lovely.

    hope this helps!

    Fist off, I like Hanna much better than Hannah. Just throwing that out there. I don't think her initials will be that much of an issue in school. Unless she has a monogrammed backpack in school, almost no one will know her middle initial.

    That being said, how about Brooke/Brooklyn? You said there's a Marie in the family, but what about Maria? Not exactly the same name.

    My first thought was Hanna Mae until I saw your 3-syllable request.

    Hanna Nikita.

    Hanna Emily.

    Hanna Sofia.

    I don't think if her initial is a it would be fine even if kids get meaner when your kid starts school.

    I think Hanna nevaeh, heaven spelled back words.

    or maybe Hanna may

    Well i think that the A middle names would be fine because when im asked to write my initials or if anyone else is, i never see anyone put their middle name intial so it would just be HM. My name is Shannon Marie Thompson but when im asked to write my initials, i put ST. i have never seen anyone actually include the middle initial, so im sure itll be fine :)
