Would this name be weird?

If I have a girl, I was thinking about using the name Joelle for a middle name. The reason being that my Dad's first name is Joedy (yes, I know that's typically a girls name) and my MIL's name is Eleanor. So if I put those names together we get Joelle. Is it weird to put my dad and MIL's names together though? My moms name is Kathleen, so I could do Jolene... But my parents are divorced and hate each other, so I feel like that would be even more inappropriate and might stir the pot.

First name = Phoebe

I think it's beautiful. Nothing weird about Joelle.

Just remember name you child whatever name you want to use. I would not ask any of the judgmental moms on here this question.

Not weird, it's a cute name. Would your mom be jealous that you used part of mil's name? Are you closer with your mil?

My first dd has my mom's middle name, so I think she would be ok with this. She loves my mil too.
