Finding The Right Middle Name

For many 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 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 are 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 wild and wacky.

Here are a few ideas of where you can look for inspiration for that perfect middle name just in case 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, or even a maiden name.

Many families have a rich and varied family history and this can often be a fantastic place for middle name inspiration. 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.

Maybe you have some Japanese heritage that you would like to use for your little one’s middle name, take a look at our Japanese Girl Names for some 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 if not all 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 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 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 Lydia as a first name, there is a chance that their initials could potentially spell out some less than desirable things.

Flow Of 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 friends and family and say the full name in conversation. If the name sounds clunky or you are falling over your words, then there is a pretty good chance that it is not the right combination of names.

Different Ways To Spell Lydia

There are a few different ways to spell Lydia. Here are a few of our favorites that offer a great alternative to the traditional spelling:

  1.  Lydiah
  2. Lidia
  3. Lyda
  4. Lidija

Cute Sibling Names That Go With Lydia

If you have more than one child or plan on having more than one, finding names that go well together is another important factor that you may 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 together.

  1. Lydia and Bennet (this one may be a little two Pride & Prejudice for some)
  2. Lydia and Alistair
  3. Lydia and Hamish
  4. Lydia and Luca
  5. Lydia and Elliot
  6. Lydia and Juliet
  7. Lydia and Miriam
  8. Lydia and Eleanor
