A middle name for Conrad

So my husband and I had agreed upon [name]Conrad[/name] [name]Alexander[/name] for a boys name when I was pregnant with our first child. (Who ended up being a beautiful little girl) Now that I’m pregnant with baby #2 we definitely are still sold on [name]Conrad[/name] as a first name, however, my love for [name]Alexander[/name] is fading.

It just seems like every time I do a search for middle names, [name]Alexander[/name] is popping up everywhere. It appears that it’s in the same boat as [name]James[/name] and [name]Grace[/name] or [name]Rose[/name]. It just seems to sound good with everything so it becames a filler name.

We still haven’t ruled it out entirely because we do think it sounds great together. (Our last name is 1 syllable) We would ideally like a 3 syllable middle name which is a bit more difficult to find for a boys name. We are also considering [name]Elias[/name]…and that’s about as far as we could get.

Our daughter’s name is [name]Roxanne[/name] [name]Coraline[/name] if that helps anyone out.

I’d love to hear some thoughts and hopefully some suggestions. Thanks!

[name]Conrad[/name] [name]Alexander[/name] sounds lovely :slight_smile: It’s a proper timeless classic, however I know what it feels like when once-favourite names become too popular or common ‘filler’ names. You could try using family names if you want to be a little more unique?

These are some 3+ syllable name suggestions: [name]Christian[/name], [name]Benjamin[/name], [name]Maximilian[/name], [name]William[/name], [name]Valentin[/name], [name]Alastair[/name], [name]Frederick[/name], [name]Everett[/name], [name]Gabriel[/name], [name]Julian[/name], [name]Nicholas[/name], [name]Lysander[/name], [name]Theodore[/name], [name]Zachary[/name], [name]Sebastian[/name], [name]Benedict[/name], [name]Elijah[/name]

But I also think two-syllable names go ok with [name]Conrad[/name] and a one-syllable surname. Perhaps [name]Samuel[/name], [name]Tristan[/name], [name]Joseph[/name], [name]Laurence[/name], [name]Reuben[/name], [name]Thomas[/name], [name]Daniel[/name], [name]Stephen[/name]?

Good luck with your name-hunting!

[name]Conrad[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] was my first thought. It has a similar sound to [name]Alexander[/name], only much less dull.

[name]Conrad[/name] [name]Xander[/name] or [name]Conrad[/name] [name]Anders[/name] might work too if you’re looking for something like [name]Alexander[/name] but less filler-ish.

[name]Elias[/name] [name]Conrad[/name] would be awesome!
