Getting ready to welcome a precious bundle of joy into the world is a happy time.

But, it’s also a really busy one. You have to figure out so many things, like what diapers to use and whether you want plastic or glass bottles.

Plus, you have to come up with an amazing name for your baby. 

Believe it or not, a name says a lot about a person. People develop a lot of perceptions about others based on name alone. Plus, your daughter’s name will also influence how she thinks about herself.

That’s why I’ve been putting together my best middle names series. So with a quick glance, you can find the perfect middle name for your daughter!

Without any further ado, here are the best middle names for a girl named Molly.

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.
