Middle names for Piper that don’t work

Choose the middle name YOU love. Here’s what I think, just in case you want an outsider’s opinion 🙂

Avoid names that rhyme with Piper

I’d personally skip over any middle names that end in the “er” sound to avoid rhyming. Piper Harper and Piper Skyler are examples.

Avoid names that make undesirable initials

You may only care about all three initials together (first, middle, last name). For example, Piper Olivia Smith wouldn’t work because her initials would be POS.

If you’re like my mom, you may want to watch out for first and middle initial combos too. She didn’t want to name my sister Brooke Michelle (BM) because of “bowel movement” (ha!) so she probably wouldn’t like Piper Pierce (PP) because of pee pee!

I happen to like the alliteration of names like Piper Paisley, but you do you on this one!

Either way, I strongly suggest googling your baby girl’s initials and making sure they don’t stand for any uncouth slang, medical conditions, organizations, etc.
