    What are some names that are also pretty nouns or adjectives?

    For example, my daughter's middle name is Joy & I have a friend who's first name is Noel.

    I'm trying to help gather a list for a friend who is trying to decide on baby names. She is having twins-a boy and a girl & she is looking to have their middle names be a noun or adjective that means something nice :)

    So far from your suggestions-please keep them coming!!

    BOY:
    Hunter
    Sonny
    Rock
    Archer
    River

    GIRL:
    Melody
    Harmony
    Prudence
    Temperance
    Mercy
    Destiny
    Windy
    Rain
    Sandy
    Ray (Rae)
    May (Mae)
    Joy
    Noel
    Grace
    Hope
    Angel
    Faith
    Charity
    Pearl
    Summer
    Autumn
    April
    Hazel
    Violet
    Olive
    Laurel
    Opal
    Aurora
    June
    Daisy (my friend said no to flower names, but I had to sneak this one in because I think it's adorable!!)

    Well, all the flower names (Lily, Rose, etc.) are nouns, but I don't think that's what you're looking for, right?

    Thank you-I suggested those, but she is really looking for duel meaning type words like "Hope" as a name but it also has a lovely meaning :)

    I think what you're looking for is known as a "virtue" name. I'm sure the baby name sites probably have a list. Ranging from popular ones (Hope, Grace, Joy) to the less-popular (Mercy, Prudence, Temperance, etc.)

    Here are a couple of lists:

    Harmony or Melody would work for a girl.

    My FIL's best friend's name is "Loyal." (It's one of the virtue names. It seemed weird when I first met him, but does not seem weird now.) My nephew is Carter, one of the "occupation" names that are common for boys now (similar to Archer or Hunter).

    Deacon.

    That's a religious figure, right? (Sorry if that sounds dense -- grew up non-religious & continuing that tradition so I'm unfamiliar)

    Boys names are a little harder to think of.
