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!

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!)

Wrapping Up

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!).

And if you’re not totally sold on Hazel, you might check out my guides for Abigail, Eleanor, or Scarlett.
