What Does Bentley Mean

The name Bentley is of English origin and means meadow with coarse grass. The name is a gender-neutral name but is traditionally considered a boys name. But as with many names ending in ‘ley’ this name is becoming increasingly popular for girls.

Bentley was considered a somewhat stuffy English surname, that was previously only associated with a very expensive British car. The name did make a surge in popularity in 2010 – 2012 due to the reality TV shows 16 and Pregnant and Teen Moms as Bentley was the name of the star Maci Bookout.

Finding The Right Middle Name

For many parents finding that 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 as they feel, the middle name is slightly less important as it is not a name that your child will use every day.

But with that said, do not let the wrong middle name take away from all your hard work of finding the perfect first name.

If you really fancy a challenge, you could go 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 some inspiration for a middle name if you are running out of ideas.

Happy baby

Family Tradition

The most common place to start 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, uncle, or 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 past 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 Names

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 That 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 that they will be using every day.

This is why you will often find people with some weird and wonderful middle names that their parents just couldn’t justify as a first name. But there are a few things that you need to consider when choosing that 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 nice names to tease your child then you bet that any child in the playground can too. 

Initials

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

Flow Of The Entire Name

When you have decided on that 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 the 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.
