    Hello,
    I'm pretty certain I want to name our daughter Everlee. (My two year old is Adlee and I think they go good together...hopefully.) Anyway, I'm having a hard time finding a middle name that would easily roll off the tongue. I would love to honor one of my grandmothers, but they both have old-fashioned french names. I'm thinking of using a variation of their names (well, one of their names) for the middle name. But I need help!!!
    My grandmothers' names are Laurence and Raymonde (isn't it odd that they BOTH have very masculine names???) This is what I have come up with so far:
    Everlee Raya Marie
    Everlee Rae Marie (doesn't really roll off the tongue)
    Everlee Laura Marie
    I honestly don't like any of these...

    I wouldn't mind naming her Everlee Laurence Marie, but I'm worried people would pronounce it "Lore-rince", but it's supposed to be something like "Larance"........I'm not sure I'm being too clear...

    Anyway, I need suggestions. I'm reallly stuck and I would like something nice.

    Love those.... also, why not use the spelling you used to help us with pronunciation as the middle name? Looks lovely!

    Laurence and Raymonde = Larayne, pron. "Lar - rain"
    Laurence and Raymonde = Layne
    Laurence and Raymonde = Lauryn

    Laurence and Raymonde = Laurie-Rae


    So...

    Everlee Larayne Marie - although I'm not convinced it flows
    Everlee Layne Marie
    Everlee Lauryn Marie
    Everlee Laurie-Rae Marie
