So my Husband and I are expecting our second LO, and we've decided if its a Boy his name will be Malachi Alexander, and if its a Girl it will be Mavis (May-vis), but we can't decide on Kaylynn, or Madilyn for the middle name! What do you think sounds better?

ALSO, I have gotten a lot of BULL because of us picking Mavis for the Girl name, I think its beautiful, and it means Beautiful son and lovely little fairy. Do you like the name what do you think about it???

I honestly don't like either middle, they do not flow with Mavis.
While I think Mavis is cute it does remind me of Avis which I think is a rental car company

Well if it helps, the last name is Murphy, my Husband liked the sound of Mavis Madilyn Murphy.

Way to much imo.

Mavis Alexandra Murphy sounds good.

I just personally don't like the first and middle names to be the same letter. It sounds mushy lol

Mavis Marie does sound nice with the triple M

Mavis Suzanne

Idk?

Alexandria is BEAUTIFUL! Especially since if its a Boy the middle name will be Alexander. I think it sounds weird too because her initials will be MMM lol

Well, TBH, I don't really like Mavis. I think as a middle name Mavis would be better.  I like Kaylynn Mavis, but I don't like it the other way around.  And I wouldn't do two "M" namesfor the first and middle.  JMO.

That's what I was thinking lol

Yeah the initials Mmm wouldn't be good
People esp boys could tease her and say she's mmm good or call her Campbells like the soup cause ya know the soup is mmm good.

Ooo, really?  That's...not good.  Is there a reason you're stuck on a name starting with M?  If your last name starts with M, I would honestly try to find a first name that starts with a different letter.  It's overload.

Not really but we just have our heart set on Mavis as a first name.
