Finding The Right Middle Name

For many parents finding the perfect middle names 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 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, or even a 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 heritage even before they are old enough to understand the connection.

Two Is Better Than One

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

You may be able to use that second place first name as a 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 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 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 couldn’t let go of but also could not justify as a first name.

But there are still 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 Josiah 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.

Different Ways To Spell Josiah

There are a few variations of Josiah. Here are some of the more unique ones:

  1. Jasiah
  2. Joziah
  3. Josea
  4. Josian
  5. Josyah

Cute Sibling Names That Go With Josiah

If you have more than more one child, 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. Josiah and Ezekiel
  2. Josiah and Jacob
  3. Josiah and Seth
  4. Josiah and Rufus
  5. Josiah and Silas
