How to Choose a Middle Name

Where do you start when it comes to selecting the ideal middle name for your child? There are hundreds of options, and how do you know which one is THE ONE?

Don’t worry – we’re here to help you through the process 🙂

Keep a notepad handy with a pen (or use your phone) for recording names you like as they come to you throughout the week. This isn’t something that should be done in one sitting, since it will take time for your brain to simmer over ideas. The finest ideas sometimes need time!

Think about where you’re going to source ideas.

Are you going to choose a family name? A name you love? Are you going to name your little one after an important person in your life? It can be a great way to honor someone you care about and who made an impact on you.

Once you’ve compiled a list of possibilities, try them out – start by reciting it aloud and writing your child’s entire name so you can see how it looks.

Finally, make sure you take these things into account before deciding:

  • What does the whole name sound like? Does it sound good and flowing or is there some awkward or not quite right about it?
  • Is the length workable? A longer first name compliments a short middle name (and remember how much room is available on government name forms!).
  • Is it possible that your child’s initials form a word or a well-known acronym? I recommend avoiding this as it may be a source of bullying at school.
  • Have you done a Google search for the whole name to make sure there are no unpleasant connotations?

Have you given your child a name that was inspired by a family member (even inadvertently)? Will they be grateful for the compliment? Will others in the family feel hurt if they are excluded? Sometimes grandmas can be a bit touchy.

Where to Find Inspiration for Middle Name Ideas

If you need more inspiration for middle name ideas, these are our favorite places to look:

  1. Pop culture – name your little one after a favorite character, from your favorite movie or book! You might also pick names from celebrities, films, novels, or video games. Don’t be scared to express yourself!
  2. Celebrity names – why not use the name of your favorite celebrity? Also, pay attention to their middle names – some have unusual and creative name ideas, so give them a try for your baby girl!
  3. Consider whether to include any of your family’s names in your baby’s name. To commemorate your roots, you might use a first name or even your mother’s or grandmother’s maiden name. Don’t feel compelled to stick with feminine given names – gender-neutral or masculine names are acceptable as middle names!
  4. Read up on blog posts like this one, check out top 100 or top 1,000 baby name lists and see what’s been popular this decade (or even in earlier decades if you love vintage!)
