Middle name for Eben

Our first baby is due in under 8 weeks (well, give or take!). We have agreed on the name Eben although we realise that we might change our minds when we meet him! I also realise that many of you may not like the name but we are happy with it. I've talked DH into giving him a middle name as it is quite important to me (I don't know why) but as our surname is fairly common and two syllables I feel his middle name would 'flow' better if it was a one or three syllable name - does that make sense? I'm struggling to think of one though apart from Alexander. Does anyone fancy throwing some suggestions my way please?

Thank you!

I am thinking Eben Michael or Eben Nathaniel sounds quite nice. I also think your choice of Alexander is great also.

Is it pronounced like Eden or like Evan? (Obviously with a b though)

Frederick, Gregory, William, Lee, John, Mark, Luke, Jeremy, Daniel.... But I like Alexander too!

polkadotdelight Sat 26-Jul-14 21:24:28

picnic I think it can be either way but we say it Eden with a B. I like Evan but DH doesn't because of a lad that lives nearby who is a bit of a pain in the bum! I also liked Rowan and Idris but DH doesnt.

Whatever you choose though someone will find something (and you must be an older codger like me to have heard it!).

BetweenDogandWolf Sat 26-Jul-14 22:10:38

No idea sorry but just wanted to tell you I love the name Eben! Both DH and I knew an Eben (the same one) before we got together and I always thought he had a great name. smile

Thank you!

DS's best mate is Eben (pronounced like Evan) and he is Even Harry. I think you need a mainstream middle name with Eben.

We know an Eben too but his full name is Ebeneezer so pron e-ben
I like Alexander to go with it.
