Hi everyone,

We don't know what we're having but we like the name Joe for a boy, not Joseph just Joe. We could use Joseph but would end up shortening it anyway so it seems silly to give the baby a name which will never be used.

The problem is we think that Joe doesn't really flow well into any middle names and we want to give the baby a middle name.

Any suggestions?

Our surname begins with T.

We have a one syllable "nickname" as dds first name and she has a two syllable middle.name which I think flows well so Joe...

Joe Oscar
Joe Thomas
Joe Edward (only so his initials would be Jet grin )

Thanks folks for all your suggestions, really helpful.

RosemaryandThyme, whilst Joe may be forgettable / nothing special it was DH's late grandad hence our reason for wanting to use it.

I was going to say Joe Alexander too. Nice.
And Joe Nathaniel or Joe Sebastian.

I can't think of many names that wouldn't work with 'Joe'. The main thing is, you pick a middle name that has a special meaning to you or perhaps honour a family member.

Ignore R+T! Joe is the best boy's name ever (my boy-who-turned-out-to-be-a-girl was going to be Joe).

I have a Joe Oliver T.......

At the end of the day, once baby is born and registered, no one will ever give a flea's fart what his middle name is ever again.

Maybe change the Joe bit, it's a bit forgettable really.

I have a Joe Alexander. He is just Joe too.

Joe Noah (I know, sounds like Jonah, but I love Jonah)?

Joseph goes very well with Isaac and Arthur

How about Joe Reuben? Joe Morris? Joe Nathan (Jonathan!)? Joe Jacob? Joe Miles? Joe Silas?

thanks for all your suggestions so far, am still of the mind that Joseph works better with more middle names so maybe we'll go for Joseph. Hmmmm, maybe it will turn out to be a girl and we can call her Eva Rose - much easier!!

Joe Michael?

I have a Joe but his middle name is my surname...just wanted to keep my name going. I realise this probably is of minimal help..congrats on excellent name choice though!
