My DS is one week old today and I still haven't chosen a middle name sad
His first name will be Henry and some combinations I like are..

Henry August
Henry Elias
Henry William
Henry James

Opinions would be great!

Don't call him Henry James. Everyone will think you've named him after the author.

Congratulations!
Do the names have any special meanings for you? I think August would be an unusual choice as he was born in April, unless it is after a family member.

Henry William. August is a bit odd as its April.

William is in my Granpa's name and it was also in his dad's name - my great grandpa. I found August on a baby name site and the others are just ones I quite liked!
I thought Henry William sounded a little old?

Henry William is a fab name.
It's a "Proper" name? I don't know why I think that. grin

Congrats though.

Henry William. I like middle names with a good reason or story behind them. Otherwise they are dull, just "oh this is a name I never use that my parents once liked".

ProfessorPickles Sun 24-Apr-16 21:33:44

Henry William is lovely smile

Chloeisobelle21 Sun 24-Apr-16 21:35:38

Does he suit Henry William?

I think Henry William has a great sound to it. ( also I spent AGES deciding on my DD middle name. Hardly ever say it really-obvs use it in forms etc) but you get what I mean ??

123rd Sun 24-Apr-16 21:36:10

Defo suits it!! Congrats x

Chloeisobelle21 Sun 24-Apr-16 21:37:22

I've attached a photo above, I do really like William!

The great thing about middle names is you can choose anything you like without having to explain or justify it as most people never get to hear it. So choose what you really like or something significant to you.

Haffdonga Sun 24-Apr-16 21:39:12

Ooh, he's lovely!

My eldest brother is a Henry, as was my DF, DGF and DGGF

Their middle names are/were

John
Thomas
William
Alan

Henry William is a great name! I seriously love it! If Henry wasn't my grandpa's name and my dad's 2nd name (and he hates naming children after relatives, smh) I'd be tempted to use it myself... halo

Congratulations flowers !!! He is sooo cute!!!<3 I think he suits Henry William.

CaptainAnkles Sun 24-Apr-16 21:49:56

He's gorgeous! Henry William is a lovely name. So is Henry James but the writer is an issue.

Sophronia Sun 24-Apr-16 22:46:03

I like Henry August

DerelictMyBalls Sun 24-Apr-16 22:55:56

Aw, he's lovely! Congratulations OP. Henry August is brilliant, but Henry William is nice, too. I love Henry.

A4Document Sun 24-Apr-16 23:22:51

I like Henry Elias and Henry William.

Henry William is perfect x

Chloeisobelle21 Mon 25-Apr-16 09:35:57

Thank you all, I've decided on Henry William as its in my family so it will be nice to pass that down. grin
