I like to use family names as middle names and had decided on Alexander however I now like Elijah as a first name and I think Elijah Alexander is a bit of a tongue twister? Also have the options of George or Benjamin but would have to use both. Other useable family name William but apart from that all the family members have names of the Barry, Derek, Keith, Lionel variety so won't be using them!


Elijah Alexander
Elijah William
Elijah George Benjamin
Elijah Benjamin George

It is a bit of a mouthful but no one ever actually says or uses middle names so I wouldn't worry

Although Elijah Keith sounds great but I'm guessing there isn't a Keith it was just an example.

Elijah Benjamin George sounds better than vice versa.

I actually like Elijah Alexander the most, I think it flows really well!

Elijah William I said lovely! I don't definitely go for that.

"is lovely!" Not "I said lovely!" confused. Autocorrect is weird today.

Do you know the more I say it Elijah Alexander actually does sound quite nice on the tongue.

haha grasspigeons no there is no real Keith.

I like William but I seem to remember DH has an irrational dislike of it, it is also one of his nephews middle names (although I don't think that should matter?)

Elijah Alexander flows beautifully, IMO!

I like the names individually, and combined, OP.

I think Elijah Alexander is a lovely name, they sound nice together to me :-)

If you really don't like the sound of them together, my next favourite is Elijah Benjamin George.

Keithlijah has a certain ring to it

Elijah Alexander needs something in between it otherwise it's a bit of a mouthful.

Elijah Francis Alexander would be nice.
