Hi, sorry I’ve posted about this before but still need some help - we’re expecting a baby boy in March and have decided on the name Reuben. I’d really like a middle name for him as we have a short one syllable surname.

Please can you give me your opinions on these middle names and we can’t decide? And please let me know if you have any other suggestions!

Reuben William
Reuben Alexander
Reuben Arthur
Reuben Oliver
Reuben Elijah
Reuben George
Reuben Elliot
Reuben Theodore

Thanks xx

Reuben Alexander sounds the best but then nobody takes notice of middle names so it doesn't matter that much 😊

Reuben Arthur Jones/Hart/Gibbs/Other one syllable name sounds nice and flows well.

What does your surname start with?
Using a name beginning with a vowel could spell out words with his initials such as
Reuben Oliver Trig ROT
Reuben Arthur Trott RAT

Just something to bear in mind and may help you decide.
For what it’s worth I like all your choices!

Starts with a Y so potentially ROY or RAY initials which is fine smile thanks for everyone’s help so far! Xx

I think Reuben George flows best. Not my top name amongst your choices but the best for a middle name
