Already have a Miles. I want to use an M name. Is Micah too similar?

JanuaryJuniper Tue 28-Feb-17 23:39:34

Both lovely names but I'm not sure I would put them together for siblings especially if you are pronouncing Micah as Mike ah

Too similar for me, especially if the first syllable of each is to be pronounced the same way. Visually they are quite similar to as well with the same start and being the same length.

I'm having trouble finding an boys M name I like! Any suggestions? ( I really do have to use an M)

JanuaryJuniper Tue 28-Feb-17 23:57:22

Hhhhmmm I'm stumped Micah would actually be my favourite M boys name. Also like Milo but that doesn't go either!

Why are you so set on two M names? I think it actually takes away from the uniqueness of Miles.

I'd be naming the new baby after a close relative who recently died. Otherwise I'd avoid 2 M names!

Oh LOVE Moses as a previous poster suggested!!

I have a Myles.
Personally I would avoid another M name.

Murray? A nice Scottish one!

Miles and Marcus

Yes, too similar.

But don't understand the naming after part.

HelenDenver Wed 01-Mar-17 09:38:06

So if the relative (sorry for your loss) was Micah, using Marcus wouldn't be "naming after"...?

Marcus is lovely though!

HelenDenver Wed 01-Mar-17 09:38:30

Could you use your relative's name as a middle name?

BasicBetty Wed 01-Mar-17 11:29:43

Matthew, Marcus, Max all work well with Miles.

In my religion's tradition you use the first letter of the deceased's name as the first letter of the baby's name.

HelenDenver Wed 01-Mar-17 13:28:02

Ah, I see.

Betty's suggestions are all nice.

Love Moses but would say it's more similar to Miles and Micah.
If Micah is Mee-kah I would go for it.
Malachi is also a lovely name and I really love Morgan as it's a family name but not sure if I'd like it otherwise!

JanuaryJuniper Wed 01-Mar-17 22:14:28

Do you like any of the suggestions as this might help posters get an idea of your preferred style!

Punksparkle Wed 01-Mar-17 22:19:16

I work with a Micah, he's gormless! smile

AbernathysFringe Wed 01-Mar-17 22:35:25

Maxim as opposed to Max

But I would avoid another M
