Hi hoping for some help please! We're expecting DS2 in a couple of months and have chosen Leo has his first name. DS1 has 2 middle names so really need to do similar for this one.. But just can't decide ... There does seem to be any calling to us, probably because our top 4 boys names are already in use. We have a common surname beginning T ... Ones we're batting around are Austin, Otis, Asher, Asa, Thomas, Atticus, Hunter, Anderson, Finn/Finlay... Nothing seems to trip off the tongue like DS1 full name. Ideas please!?
Alternatively, you can use your maiden name as a middle name. This is quite common in my family and used to be common in a lot of families.
I like the Austin Thomas combo as well. How many syllables in your surname?
I like Leo Anderson.
You don't have to give your child two middle names just because the first one has two- one of my cousins has three middle names (they are Elizabeth Anna Marie) so five names in total but her little brother has a one syllable name and no middle names at all!
Maybe, Leo Hunter Finn? Leo Asher Anderson?
Or just cop out and use the father's name as the middle name
Leo Thomas Alasdair T.. Leo Thomas Austin T Leo Thomas Hugh T Leo Thomas Arlo T Leo Thomas Otis T Leo Thomas ATticus T I think Leo Thomas is the best prefix and a lot of names follow Thomas nicely, most names on your list could become the third name easily.
We have a Leo, but we decided well before we chose his first name that his middle name was going to be my maiden name, which is a boys name anyway. It means that he has a part of my family in his name too.
Thanks everyone, food for thought. Anon I like your logic, I have been trying to think of a 4 syllable name for the first middle name that I like... I love Alexander but I already used it for DS1s middle name! Quicker like Benjamin but would prefer one that starts with a vowel, any ideas?
