Middle Names for Maeve: 200 Dazzling Ideas (That Really Work!)

This pretty one-syllable soft girl’s name is of Irish origin and means “who who intoxicates” – which is a powerful meaning!

Is Maeve a popular girl’s name?

Maeve’s popularity has risen dramatically in the last decade, making it a cool modern girl name. 

It taps into that trend for soft but strong girl names – plus it’s short and sweet!

The name Maeve has steadily climbed up the baby name charts in recent years – I think helped by the name’s use in popular culture such as the hit superhero show The Boys. One of the lead female characters is called “Brave Maeve”. 

In the US the name has jumped nearly 70 places in the last three years, taking it to just outside the top 100 baby names. 

So it’s a familiar name but it’s still not too commonly used which is a nice balance to have if you love the idea of a unique name

The name is even more popular in the UK, where it has reached the top 100 baby girl names.

Due to the name ending with a soft “v” sound that leads easily on to another name you can combine Maeve with a huge variety of middle names!

Tips for choosing a middle name 

Try these tips for picking a baby name if you’re struggling to finalise your choice. 

Look out for names everywhere 

Whether you’re in a shop, reading a book or magazine, or watching TV, you can find inspiration for a baby name anywhere. 

Pay attention to possible names, and have somewhere you can make a note of names that stand out to you – such as a Notes document on your phone. 

This sort of open-mindedness can help you find a type of name you love – for example you hear the name Catherine and think you might like a name similar to that, then you can search for names along those lines. 

Consider names with meaning 

A middle name is often a tribute to a loved one. It can also be a chance to bring in something else of meaning to you, such as a place – maybe you have a fondness for visits to Paris – or a sentiment, such as Hope. 

Remember that your baby’s name doesn’t have to have particular meaning, but it can be a useful place to find ideas. 

Decide on your style

When discussing baby names it can really help to find trends and styles you both love. 

This is where you can find common ground with individual names – as while you may not like one specific name you both may love one that is closely related or similar to it. 

Create a shortlist but keep it flexible 

Your opinion of names may evolve and change completely as you go about debating different names. 

It’s a good idea to aim for a shortlist that you have ready by the time you reach your final weeks of pregnancy. 

However this shortlist doesn’t have to be set in stone. You may come across another name that you hadn’t considered. 

Look at name themes

A baby name theme can be really personal, such as rainbow baby names, and help you find a name full of meaning for you.

I have dozens of baby name themes and ideas for you to browse.
