An awesome middle name for...

[name]Hi[/name] everyone,

We are down to choosing between 2 first names and we need some middle names to match them. Would love to hear ideas on middle names for:

[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Smith[/name]
[name]Colton[/name] [name]Smith[/name]

We are looking for something less common rather than more common or traditional, but not as wild as, say, [name]Blaze[/name]. Our first son is named [name]Easton[/name] [name]Cade[/name] [name]Smith[/name]–we have received so many compliments on that one, and of course we love it too. This time around it’s been much more of a struggle to find something we’re in love with. He’s due in a week so it’s crunch time!


The Smiths

[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Reid[/name], [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Ralph[/name], [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Bryce[/name], [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Orion[/name], [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Rhys[/name], [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Hale[/name], [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Flynn[/name], [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Frost[/name], [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Cai[/name], [name]Bennett[/name] [name]John[/name], [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Wolf[/name], [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Mack[/name], [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Miles[/name]
[name]Colton[/name] [name]Brooks[/name], [name]Colton[/name] [name]Seth[/name], [name]Colton[/name] [name]Beck[/name], [name]Colton[/name] [name]Dane[/name], [name]Colton[/name] [name]Gray[/name], [name]Colton[/name] [name]Reid[/name], [name]Colton[/name] [name]Ash[/name], [name]Colton[/name] [name]Rex[/name], [name]Colton[/name] [name]Fox[/name], [name]Colton[/name] [name]Nash[/name], [name]Colton[/name] [name]West[/name], [name]Colton[/name] [name]Jude[/name]

Good luck!

Ooooo, two good names (and [name]Easton[/name] [name]Cade[/name] is great!)…[name]Bennett[/name] is my personal favorite! [name]How[/name] about [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Jude[/name], [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Pfeiffer[/name], or [name]Bennett[/name] [name]McCoy[/name]?

[name]Bennett[/name] is quite a distinguished name and I think it’s a wonderful sibling name for [name]Easton[/name]'s brother. [name]Colton[/name] is too similar in ending to [name]Easton[/name] so I wouldn’t personally choose this name. Here are some suggestions for middle names.

[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Dean[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Cole[/name] (since you like [name]Colton[/name])
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Cruz[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Gage[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]George[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Heath[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]James[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Hugh[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Jack[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Grant[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Kai[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Luke[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Troy[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Vaughn[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Sage[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Pierce[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Nash[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Gray[/name]

I agree with mischa about the matching suffixes of [name]Easton[/name] and [name]Colton[/name]. To me, [name]Bennett[/name] and [name]Easton[/name] share a more distinguished style, while [name]Colton[/name] just seems a little more trendy to me. I’m not sure why, that’s just the vibe I get from the names.

[name]Easton[/name] [name]Cade[/name] and
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Grey[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Wolf[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Blake[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Gage[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Max[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Crew[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Craig[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Paul[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Cash[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Lloyd[/name]

Wow, you guys are great! These are all good, and many I have actually considered! I agree, [name]Colton[/name] is probably not as good a match for [name]Easton[/name] as is [name]Bennett[/name]. So if [name]Bennett[/name], then I like:

[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Orion[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Jude[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Dean[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Dane[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Cole[/name] (does this sound too much like barnacle?)
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Crew[/name]

[name]Do[/name] any of these sound like medicines? For example, we liked [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Graham[/name], but it sounds like a medicine for some reason (Benegram?) Maybe we’re over thinking it…[name]Bennett[/name] [name]James[/name] also has a very nice ring to it, just may not be unique enough. I personally like [name]Gage[/name] & [name]Nash[/name] as well, but my wife thinks they are too harsh. With [name]Bennett[/name] being a “distinguished” name as some have pointed out, we are looking for a more fun/cool middle name, kind of like we did with [name]Easton[/name] [name]Cade[/name].

What about [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Drew[/name]?

I like your name style! I like the sound of [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Gage[/name] [name]Smith[/name], though there are lots of great suggestions. I also like the sound of [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Jude[/name] and [name]Bennett[/name] [name]James[/name]; however you might want to consider that the initials in those cases would be BJ. We named our son [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Joel[/name] [name]James[/name] ([name]Joel[/name] & [name]James[/name] are family names) without even considering the initials. I absolutely love my sons name but I do worry he might get teased about his initials at some point when he gets older.

I think [name]Bennett[/name] & [name]Easton[/name] are great names & will make great brothers - congrats!

Thank you! This is all very helpful.

I like [name]Bennett[/name] more than [name]Colton[/name].

And I really like [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Drew[/name] from the list above. I think that’s super cute!

As a suggestion, I love the name [name]Wade[/name]. [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Wade[/name] is wildly adorable, [name]IMO[/name], but not sure if having [name]Easton[/name] [name]Cade[/name] and [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Wade[/name] matters to you.

Ok, late follow up, baby was born [name]Wednesday[/name], just leaving the hospital, still don’t have a middle name! Down to:

[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Gray[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Drew[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Crew[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] [name]Tate[/name]

Votes? Any last suggestions?

Thanks everyone!

I like [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Gray[/name] or [name]Bennett[/name] [name]Drew[/name] out of your four choices!
