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 Caroline 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 other children with the same name in their class.

But with this 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 names when telling them off and there is actually research that has proved it improves their behavior.

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’s not always the case despite our best intentions.

So in cases such as this by providing your little one with a middle name gives them the option of using it as an alternative to their first name.

Finding The Right Middle Name

For some parents finding the right 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. You’re only legally required to have a first name and a surname on your birth certificate in the US. 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 perfect for your child and connects them to their family heritage, even before they are old enough to understand the connection.

You may have some Irish heritage and would like to honor a relative from there with your daughter’s middle name, take a look at the list of our Irish Unisex Names for some further inspiration.

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 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 the 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 Caroline 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.

Cute Sibling Names That Go Perfectly With Caroline

If you have more than one child or plan on having anymore, finding a name that goes well together is another important factor that you need to consider.

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 with Caroline.

  1. Caroline and Anna
  2. Caroline and Elizabeth
  3. Caroline and Emily
  4. Caroline and Madeleine
  5. Caroline and Lucy

  8. Caroline and Asher
