Choosing the Best Middle Names For Nicole:

Family Ties

There are plenty of family members who could be sources of inspiration, such as aunts, grandmothers, sisters, or cousins. You could also choose a male family name or gender neutral name as Madeline’s middle name. 

If you would like to go with a classic or traditional middle name for Madeline, looking back through your family tree can be a great way to come up with ideas. My husband’s grandmother’s name is Rosalyn, and we’ve loved the idea of passing along her name (she is currently 93 years old) to a little girl and giving her the nickname “Rosie.”

There may be names of family members that you haven’t heard yet!

Special Places

Do you have a favorite city, town, park, or place? Have you visited another country that left a special impression on you?

My friend named her baby Sydney for the famed town in Australia. She spent a summer there and loved the atmosphere. There are many names of special places that make creative and beautiful names for baby girls.

Consider Shannon, London, Ireland, Victoria, Madison, Elizabeth, Savannah, Alexandria, Ravenna, Carmel, Chelsea, Brooklyn, Charlotte, Helena, or Cheyenne.

If you don’t want to go with the name of a city or town, you can consider important places around you, including parks, nature trails, and street names. 

Here are some ideas:

  • Nicole Sidney
  • Nicole Charolette
  • Nicole Aspen
  • Nicole Geneva
  • Nicole Savana
  • Nicole Sierra
  • Nicole London

Celebrity Names

Celebrities are not only people who are in TV shows and movies. You could also consider the names of other famous people, including speakers, authors, DJs, musicians, and news anchors.

Have you heard an original or unique name that you love? Sometimes people use their middle name as a stage name, so this can be an important consideration when choosing your middle name for Nicole!

Here are some ideas:

  • Nicole Marilyn
  • Nicole Rihanna
  • Nicole Taylor
  • Nicole Selena
  • Nicole Serena
  • Nicole Angelina

Nature Inspired

If you would like to give Nicole a complementary middle name inspired by nature, here are some other ideas:

Pearl – A classic middle name that has been used for generations. It is simple and elegant, and it goes well with many different first names.

Brooke – This name is of Old English origin and means “stream.” It is a nature-inspired name that would be perfect for a baby girl born near water.

Gardenia – This beautiful flower name would make a lovely middle name for your little one.

Iris – This name is of Greek origin and means “rainbow.” It is a colorful and unique option for your baby girl.

Willow – This name is of English origin and means “graceful.” It is a beautiful tree-inspired name for your baby girl.

Here are some more ideas:

  • Nicole Ivy
  • Nicole Rose
  • Nicole Olive
  • Nicole Daisy
  • Nicole Skye
  • Nicole Luna

Favorite Books or Shows

Another option is to choose a name inspired by your favorite book or television show.

This could be a great way to introduce your child to some favored elements of childhood or culture. If your family has mixed backgrounds and cultures, you could choose a popular movie name that honors your heritage.

Think Maribel, Isabella, or Luisa from the hit movie Encanto. (But…we don’t talk about Bruno, no, no, no.)

Old Disney movies offer names like Aurora, Jasmine, Belle, Alice, Jane, and Tiana. Newer movies include some of our favorite characters like Moana, Anna, Raya, Kiara, and Elsa.

Syllable Balance

Since Madeline is a two-syllable name, either a short or long middle name can work well. Of course, this depends on your last name.

Most memorable names are between four to six syllables. Anything longer than that can sometimes be challenging to commit to memory (but, of course, that’s not a hard and fast rule).

So when you are considering the best middle name for Madeline, consider how many syllables her entire name will be, as well as how it all flows together. Does it sound better to have a short middle name or a long one?

Both of my boys have a 1:2:1 syllable ratio for their names. My name is 3:2:1, and while it’s not the most original and exciting name (Jennifer was an entirely common name in the 80s!), it does flow with my middle and last name. 

One syllable middle names:

  • Nicole Anne
  • Nicole Bree
  • Nicole Eve
  • Nicole Rae
  • Nicole Quinn
  • Nicole Paige
  • Nicole Wren


Put simply, cadence is the flow or rhythm of sounds or words. It is generally a musical term and refers to that special quality that makes notes sound good together.

The question is: how do we create cadence with our names? Is there a way to make them sound almost lyrical?

Syllable balance is one way to create cadence, but there are other elements too, such as alliteration. Saying your daughter’s name aloud is a great way to test for cadence, or flow.

Consider the middle names you’ve chosen for Nicole. How do they sound with your last name? Do all names flow well together? 


There are some cute nicknames for Nicole like Cole, Nic, Nika, and Nikki. You could also combine her first and middle name initials to create nicknames like NJ – Nicole Joy , Nicole June or Nicole Jade!
