20 Two-Part Baby Names for Parents Who Can't Decide on Just 1

Hot List 76

baby girlWhen it comes to baby names, I'm a little greedy -- I like two first names. My daughter is "Lila Claire", and I do everything I can to keep the two names together instead of separating them.

I love the old-fashioned sound of these two-part first names. Also, it's a good way to use popular names and make them stand out a bit in the mix. For example, I've run into plenty of Lilas but never a Lila Claire.

Some people like to hyphenate them, while others just have them stand side-by-side. You can choose to do it however you wish. Here are 20 of my favorite double baby names that might make you second guess just choosing one. 


1. Mary-Claire

2. Anna-Grace

3. Molly-Kate

4. Anna-Katherine

5. Amelia-Rose

6. Ellie-Mae

7. Emma-Frances

8. Ella-Faye

9. Leah-Louise

10. Ruby-May


1. Jack-Henry

2. John-Michael

3. Bobby-Lee

4. Zack-Allen

5. Charlie-Mack

6. Mark-Michael

7. Tyler-Jay

8. Thomas-Ray

9. Tommy-Lee

10. Oliver-James

My daughter's name is Jaelynne Rose. I am Jennifer Lynne. The Jae is for Jennifer, The lynne is for my middle name, Rose, is for my grandmother who earned her wings when I was little. I always wanted a baby girl. I wanted her to carry my granma's name. Now, she does. Our little ones were named after my husband's grandfather and my grandmother. Very special to us.
