One-syllable middle names are often sought after when a first name is two or more syllables. It is also appealing if the first and last name have the same number of syllables -- a single-syllable middle name will break up the rhythm and can help a full name seem less sing-song-ish. Lee, Lynn and Ann have been popular choices for several dozen years. What about Maeve or Sage?
