Why You Need A Middle Name

There are a few different reasons why parents feel that their children need to have a middle name. Here are a few for you to consider if you are still on the fence about whether Phoebe really needs a middle name or not.

To Set Them Apart

That’s right giving your baby a middle name can help to distinguish them from all the other children with the same first name in their class.

But with that said this will not always apply and depends very much on whether your baby girl has a super popular name or something that is a little more unique.

Middle Name Equals Better Behavior

We all remember as children when our parents used our full name that we were in big trouble. It is a common parenting hack to use your children’s full name when telling them off, it actually works and has been proved by research.

Being reminded of your middle name actually leads to an increase in good behavior.

Alternative Name Option

Every parent hopes that their children love the name we choose for them but it is not always the case despite our best intentions.

So in cases such as this, providing your little one with a middle name gives them the option to use that name as an alternative to their first name if they choose.

Finding The Right Middle Name

For many parents finding the right middle name is just as important as finding the first name.

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

With that said, do not let the wrong middle name take away from all of 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 are only legally required to have a first name and a surname on your birth certificate. Anything more than that is down to personal choice.

Where To Look For Inspiration

As it has 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 go for something a little more wild and wacky.

Here are a few ideas of where to look for some inspiration for a middle name for Phoebe if you are running out of ideas.

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.

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 are sure to find a name that is perfect for your child and connects them to their family heritage even before they are old enough to understand the connection.

Maybe you have some Native American heritage that you would like to embrace with your daughter’s middle name. If this is the case then check out some of our favorite Navajo names and their meanings here.

Two Is Better Than One

Maybe you or your partner had a first name choice that didn’t quite make the grade for a variety of reasons.

You may be able to use that second choice first name as a middle name. Almost all first names make great middle names so you have 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 quite trendy at the moment.

So if you and your partner have a special place that holds some fond memories or even a favorite destination, then 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 more daring with your children’s names. After all, it is not the name they will be using every day.

This is why you will often find people with some wild and wonderful middle names that their parents just couldn’t let go of but also could not justify as a first name.

But there are still a few things you need to consider when choosing that perfect middle name.

101 Unique Middle Names For Alexis

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 any child in the playground can too.


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

There is the potential for certain middle names and surnames when combined with the P from Phoebe to spell out some less than desirable words.

The Flow Of The Entire Name

When you have chosen the perfect first name and a middle name to complement it, you need to check the whole name flows nicely when your surname is added on too. You do not want the name to sound too clunky when it is said aloud.

If you have any doubts, say the name out loud to friends and family and use it in conversation to check how it flows when said in full.

If you find yourself tripping over your words or the whole name just sounds clunky, there is a pretty good chance you haven’t chosen the right combination of names.
