Tips for Choosing the Best Middle Names

I go into more detail on tips for choosing great middle names in this post, but in summary, here are some ideas to help you choose a perfect middle name for your baby boy or girl (we have ideas for both below!):

Use a Family Name

We named each of our children a unique name, and the used family member’s names as their middle names.

Create a theme with sibling names

Sort of like we did by using all family names for middle names, you could choose any theme (like your favorite famous people, for example) and use the same theme for all of your children’s middle names.

Nickname Options

If you have a nickname you love that you want to use, consider that when you choose your baby’s middle name. Some kids end up going by their middle name or some combination of first and middle name.

Make sure it sounds good with your last name

If your child’s middle name doesn’t sound good with your last name, it could be a deal breaker. You don’t want your kid’s name to be a tongue twister, after all. Consider that when you’re naming your little man, ’cause he’s stuck with it for life.
