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 Caden really needs a middle name.

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 that said this will not always apply and depends very much on whether your baby boy has a super popular name or something 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 and 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 by providing your little one with a middle name gives them the option of using it instead of their first name if they want to.

Finding The Right Middle Name 

For some parents finding the perfect middle name is just as important as finding the right 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 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 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’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 wild 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.

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, aunt, uncle, or even a maiden name. Giving your child the same middle name as a family member’s first name is a sweet gesture and a way to remember relatives who have passed away.

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.

Maybe you have some Native American heritage in your family history that you would like to embrace, if so then check out some of our favorite Navajo names with meanings here.

Two Is Better Than One 

Did you have a great first name choice that didn’t quite make the cut? 

Maybe you could use one of the first names that didn’t make the grade as a middle name for baby Caden. The majority of first names work well as middle names too, so there’s nothing to worry about if you love a first name but want to use it as a middle name. 

Giving your child a middle name is not essential, in the US you are only legally required to have a first name and a surname on the birth certificate. However, a middle name gives your child options in the future. 

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, 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, your child will not be using their middle name every day. 

This is why you will often find people with some weird and wonderful middle names.

These more unique names may be ones the parent’s really loved but could not justify using as a first name for their child. But there are still a few things you need to consider when choosing the perfect middle name for your child. 

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 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 Caden 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 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 friends and family and say the full name in conversation. If you find yourself tripping over your words or the name sounds clunky, there’s a pretty good chance that it is not the right combination of names.
