Our last name starts with O if that is any help... love Isaac but really stuck on a middle name, pls help me out (after everyone's help with the May/Mae debate)!

do you want a biblical name?

littlemissbossy Mon 09-May-05 10:50:04

do you have any relative names that you'd want to use - a grandfathers name for instance, something traditional

I love nathaniel but then I'm biased as DS1 has it for his middle name.

Not specifically biblical, but happy for it to be (dh is christian) family names we want to use as they're all good ol' fashioned methodist names like 'Gordon', 'Ronald' etc or on the other side 'Roy' and 'Ernest'..nothing against these names, you understand, just not my choice for a babe..Like Nathaniel, Jacob & Joshua, all names we thought about for first names..Ethan is a really good idea, as DH suggested it for first name once - keep 'em coming !!

I like James too RTKM.

Is your surname monosyllabic or more? My first thought was that it would sound good with a name with a few syllables - so Isaac Anthony for example, but it depends on how long or short your surname is.

If it's short, e.g. Brown/Jones/Smith I'd have something 'like' Isacc Anthony Smith. If it's long then you could have a shorter one like Isaac James Butterworth.

Erm, I posted that before Suzywongs

JiminyCricket Mon 09-May-05 11:03:24

Its two syllables - don't know where that leaves us?

Ben automatically sprung to mind - no idea why

Gobbledigook Mon 09-May-05 11:09:55

Ok so say the surname is Handforth I think Isaac Anthony Handforth or Isaac James Handforth both sound nice (they are just examples though with the syllables).

Personally my absolute fav boys name is David and I think that would go beautifully with Isaac!

My first thought was James too. It sounds right.

Isaac Alexander? (DS1's middle name )
