Middle Names


Recommended Posts

I love both of those! One of ours was almost Isaac because DH likes the nickname Zac.


With Isaac: Paul, Benjamin, Gabriel, Daniel, James, Matthew, Samuel. Sorry, I have a plethora of Biblical names at my house. Otherwise, Bennett, William, Robert.


With Sarah: Elizabeth, Anne, Joy, Rose, Noelle, Nicole, Margaret, Louise, Therese, Michelle. Sarah goes with practically everything.

We have a 2-syllable last name and both my girls have 2-syllable first names. I personally like the way a 3+syllable middle name sound with that combo.


So with Isaac: Nathaniel, Elijah, Benjamin, Xavier, Joshua, Samuel, etc.

With Sarah: Elizabeth, Bethany, Isabelle, Emily, etc.

Benjamin is a name I love, but no because of other family. I wouldn't use Elizabeth, that's my name. I do prefer a long mn for Sarah.

My kids are







The 2-3-1s flow the best.  Obviously not an option with a 2-syllable last name, but I will vouch for mixing it up.  My 2-2-2 and 2-2-1-1 sound choppy to me.


(I was a 2-1-3 and that sounded nicer than my now 2-1-1. Not that I use my middle name as an adult in anything other than legal documents.)
