Finding The Right Middle Name

For some parents finding the perfect middle name is just as important as finding the first name.

While other parents allow themselves to have a little more fun when choosing a middle name as they feel they are slightly less important as it is not the name the child will use every day.

But with that said, don’t let the wrong middle name take away from all your hard work finding the perfect first name for your little one.

If you really fancy a challenge, you could opt for two middle names. In the US, you’re only legally required to have a first name and a surname on your birth certificate. Anything after that is simply down to personal choice.

Where To Look For Inspiration

As it’s been said most people do not use their middle name on a daily basis so you can take a step away from the more traditional names and opt for something that is a little more weird and wacky.

Here are a few ideas of where to look for inspiration for middle names if you are looking for some inspiration.

Family Tradition

The most common place to start for most people is with your own family. Many families have a tradition of passing down a middle name from one generation to another or choosing a middle name that begins with a certain letter.

While you may decide on a middle name to honor a relative. This could be a grandparent, aunt, uncle or even a maiden name.

Take a good look into your family history and you’re sure to find a name that is both perfect for your child and connects them to their family heritage, even before they are old enough to understand the connection.

Two Is Better Than One

Maybe you and your partner had a first name choice that was pipped at the post for a variety of reasons.

The middle name may be a way to use that second place first name in your baby’s full name as their middle name. As most first names also make great middle names, there’s nothing to worry about.

Memories Or Place Name

Celebrities are not the only people who can use place names for their children’s names. They are actually very trendy at the moment.

So if you and your partner have a special place that holds some fond memories or a favorite destination, go for it.

What To Be Careful Of When Choosing The Perfect Middle Name

Middle names are an opportunity to be a little wilder and daring with your children’s names. After all, it is not the name they will be using every day.

This is why you often find people with some weird and wonderful middle names that their parents just couldn’t let go of but also couldn’t justify as a first name. There are a few things that you need to consider when choosing a perfect middle name:

Potential For An Unfortunate Nickname

You need to put yourself into the mind of a child and think as they do. If you can think up some cruel and not very nice names to tease your child, then you can bet that any child in the playground can too.


Remember that your children’s initials will often be written down on display so you need to ensure that they do not spell out any unfortunate words.

With Lillian as a first name, there is always the chance that their initials could potentially spell out some less than desirable words.

Flow Of Entire Name

When you decide on the perfect first name, along with the perfect middle name, and of course you already know the surname, you need to check that it all flows together and is not too clunky when you say it out loud.

If you have any doubts get a second opinion from family and friends and say the full name in conversation.

If the name sounds clunky or you are tripping over your words, there’s a pretty good chance that it is not the right combination of names.

Remember that you will probably say your little one’s names a million times together so it is important that they flow well. Here are a few suggestions for sibling names that work well together.
