Baby Hazel is on the way…
Not to put a fly in your ointment, but…
Have you decided on her middle name yet?
Picking a first name is hard, but it gets a lot of attention from new parents. The middle name is equally challenging but often gets pushed until the last minute.
So I’ve been creating my guides to picking a middle name, with lists of the best middle names for any first name.
Without any further ado, here are my favorite and the best middle names for a girl named Hazel.
I’ve compiled these from baby name databases, parent discussion forums, and other sources then whittled them down to the ones I personally think sound the best.
Hope it helps!
Middle names ideas for a girl named Hazel
Here are some unique, classic, girly, cute, and versatile middle name ideas for your bouncing baby.
I hope you find what you’re looking for on this list, but if not, it should serve as a good starting point!Alice
My personal favorite middle names for Hazel? Definitely Hazel Mae and Hazel Leigh — I think those one-syllable options sound great, but you should pick whatever sounds right to you!
Meaning of the name Hazel
Hazel, of course, is a reference to the hazel nut and specifically the hazel nut tree.
As far as meaning, it’s often interpreted as a symbol of protection and authority according to Nameberry.
Compared to a lot of other popular contemporary choices, Hazel is a relatively new name.
It didn’t gain a lot of widespread popularity until the 1900s, and the late ones at that!
It started as a popular name for celebrity babies, but nowadays you’ll meet Hazels almost everywhere.
(It’s a particularly popular name for brown-eyed or brown-haired girls, though you won’t know for sure until she comes out!)
Whether you choose Mae, Leigh, or Elizabeth as a middle name, Hazel is a beautiful first name for a baby girl.
Hopefully you liked one of the options above! But if not, you should go with a family name or even your second-choice first name (if they sound good together!).
