How to Choose a Middle Name

Naming your baby is a big decision. If you’re struggling to find the right choice, the best thing to do is try every name out and keep a list of your favorites.

Here’s some ways to test if you’ve got a winner:

  • How does the middle name, when combined with her first and last names, sound? It should flow well without any strange or inconvenient sounds or combinations.
  • Consider the length and number of syllables for all of your potential names. It’s a game of balance: A shorter middle name may go well with a lengthy last name.
  • Consider the end sound of the first name. Names that begin with this same sound may appear forced or unusual as a middle name. Consider using a moniker with a consonant for a distinct sound or a vowel for a more soothing effect instead.
