Middle name help

Hello.
I'm currently 34 weeks pregnant with my second and struggling for names. We finally decided on the name Ted William for a boy (we don't know what we're having) but the realised his initials would be TWT - which I think might be a little mean.
Any good suggestions for a middle name similar to William?
Thanks x

Why not give him the first name Edward and call him Ted as a nickname?
ETW? Any problems with that?

Hey, we've considered that to be honest but neither of us are keen on the name Edward and if we do call him Edward I'm not sure if I would choose William as a middle name anyway! Such complicated decisions :0)
Thanks for your reply thou

or Edgar or Edwin...

Frederick, Christopher, Alexander, James, Jonathan, Nicholas all have a similar feel to William.

I'd be tempted to go with a J name and he can always use TJ if he doesn't feel like a Ted.

Another name that gets shortened to Ted is Theodore.
You'll get there, and by the time he's a few months old you'll wonder how you ever worried about his name, since it fits him!
