Does he have a grandad or family member you'd like to honour?

Lovely name (though I have a Joshua so am biased!). I think as Joshua is 3 syllables and your surname is 3 syllables I would go for a 1 or 2 syllable name to stop it being too much of a mouthful. What letter does your surname begin with to avoid spelling out anything with his initials, and are there any family names you’d use? Do you want another classic/biblical name?

@miltonj well we have both grandads to potentially honour but can't deal with the headache of upsetting one. Our girls' middle names aren't named after anyone per se

I think you need something with fewer syllables as Joshua and your surname are quite long.

Joshua Jack (risk of being nn "JJ" with those though?)

I like the flow of Joshua j names
Joshua James
Joshua jack
Joshua jax
Joshua jett
Joshua jay

Would both grandfathers name flow? Or do you definitely want only one middle name?

My Joshua is a Joshua Benjamin
So is a friend of ours!
(We found it out when we got talking about middle names one day)
One goes by josh and the other by j (it’s been his nickname since birth)
It’s a name that goes well with most names to be honest
