    Middle names for Hailey that don’t work

    Don’t let me stop you from choosing the middle name that YOU love; but just in case you want an outsider’s opinion, here’s my take!

    Avoid names that rhyme with Hailey

    I’d personally skip over any 2-syllable middle names that end in the “ee” sound. Hailey Riley, Hailey Lily, Hailey Aubrey, and Hailey Paisley are examples.

    Avoid names that start with the “ee” sound

    There’s just too much eeeee going on with a name like Hailey Eve.

    Avoid names that make undesirable initials

    Hailey Alexia Grey wouldn’t work because her initials would be HAG.

    You may also choose to avoid any funky pairings of the first and middle initial. For example, Hailey Olivia would give her the initials HO.

    Either way, it’s wise to run a few google searches of your baby’s initials and make sure they don’t stand for any questionable slang, medical conditions, organizations, etc.
