Any ideas for a middle name to go with Rory? Brother to James.

First thought was Alexander.

A longer name seems to go with Rory really well.

Rory Alexander
Rory Nathaniel
Rory Christopher
Rory Joshua

Thanks, I think a longer name works well. Christopher and Joshua are my favourites so far.

I was about to suggest James on the basis of your title smile.
Nicholas, Dominc, Matthew?

I meant Dominic not Dominc, Lord knows I don't want to suggest a unique spelling on MN wink

Oh, I quite liked Dominc! smile

The Rory I know is Rory James but that's obv out. I agree about the longer name. I like Rory Alexander too. Or how about keeping with the Scottish theme and Rory Cameron, Rory Mackenzie, Rory Lachlan

Christopher ! But I may be biased

I have a Christopher too, known as Kit. Very underused IMO.

Wow, thanks for all the suggestions. I do like the Scottish theme. I had a Scottish maiden name, my married name is very Irish! James' middle name is Logan. I like Fergus, but don't know if it goes with Rory?

Rory Ferguson?

I love your taste in names smile

Rory is lovely & there are lots of great middle name suggestions above. Rory Fergus would work well, I think.

Alistair? It's the Scottish form of Alexander.
