There's more to baby naming than the first name—the middle is just as important (and a great place to pay homage to a family member, or get a little more creative and daring with a more traditional first name). Some of the hottest middle names include virtue baby names, such as Faith and Hope, or flower baby names, such as Rose and Daisy. Whether you want a unique middle name or a classic middle name, read on to check out the coolest options for girls.
Floral names are sweet and feminine and perfect for your baby girl. In fact, the middle name Rose is a favorite among many celebrity parents, including:
Other floral names that would make beautiful middle (or first!) names include Tulip, Daisy, Lilac, Dahlia, Violet, Lily, Iris, Petunia, Poppy or Jasmine.
Old-fashioned middle names are a great choice for parents who want to pass on a family name or just love classic names that never go out of style. The middle name Louise is a popular choice for celebrity babies, including:
Many celebrities are also choosing old-fashioned first and middle names, for example:
Virtue names describe a characteristic, such as Faith or Hope, and are a popular choice for middle names. They are meaningful, yet unique. The middle name Grace is a popular choice among celebrities, including Kelly Rutherford, who named her daughter Helena Grace, and Sarah Michelle Gellar, who has a daughter named Charlotte Grace.
We also love the name of Meg Ryan's daughter, Daisy True, and Alison Sweeney's little girl, who is named Megan Hope.

If you are looking for a unique middle name, perhaps a colorful middle name is for you! Among the basic colors, Blue is the most popular baby name. For example, Kelly Preston and John Travolta's daughter is named Ella Bleu; and Beyonce used the color as a first name when naming daughter Blue Ivy Carter.
Other basic color names include Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Indigo and Violet.
Look beyond the basic spectrum, for unique colors like Azure, Aqua or Citron. Singer Pink named her daughter Willow Sage, while Nicole Richie went on the dark side when naming son Sparrow James Midnight.
