Take Note

Choose Middle names for Your baby.

Many families believe that two middle names are necessary, and some parents don’t think their children should have any. So traditionally, in the United States, you will receive a first name, a middle name, and your family or last name. However, there is no rule about how many you can choose to use for yourself! So if one isn’t good enough, then maybe try using more than one!

To choose the perfect middle name for your baby, consider how their names will pair together. Do you want all of the syllables to flow evenly? What do their initials spell out? By answering these questions and considering options, you can find a great match that works well with both first and last names.

Shared names for your baby

Families have different traditions about naming babies. For example, some families might name the baby after a family member by adding that person’s last name as a middle name. Another tradition is using an old favorite family surname in future children’s names instead of changing it up every time someone is born into the picture!

In addition to the family, consider the popular or unpopular famous figures who share your baby girl’s name. Do you want her associated with these individuals? You need to choose carefully because this association is likely going to follow her throughout their lives!

On many other families, they use their famous family name as the middle name of the child. Think about the historical figure and the famous personality for choosing a middle name for the baby.
