Favorite (uncommon) middle name ideas

What are some names you love as middles but maybe wouldn’t use as firsts. Ones that are more uncommon and fun.

[name_m]Beauregard[/name_m] (just too long)
[name_m]Elvis[/name_m] (too vintage [name_m]Rock[/name_m] n [name_m]Roll[/name_m])
[name_m]Homer[/name_m] (too cartoon-ish)
[name_m]Oscar[/name_m] (too Seasame [name_f]Street[/name_f])

Here’s one of my lists!

I have a lot but off the top of my head:

  • Clover
  • Crescent
  • Petal
  • Leon
  • Blaise
  • Lavender
  • Cosmo
  • Cascada
  • Honey


All the middle names on my UC are names I would not use as a first name!

For boys, they are:


And we can also add (I guess these are “guilty pleasure” middle names):


I’ve been loving [name_m]Cornelius[/name_m] lately! I feel like it may make a better first name with all the nickname possibilities though!

I also love [name_m]Octavian[/name_m]. I have [name_m]Tavian[/name_m] on my list for a first name but either could also be middle names. So handsome :heart_eyes:

I’ve also definitely thought about [name_u]Cypress[/name_u]. I go back and forth on it. I like the sound of the name but Im not super into nature names (there are a few I do like). [name_u]Sage[/name_u] is in the same boat. I prefer [name_u]Sage[/name_u] for a boy and probably only as a middle.

Alaric is also on my list. I like [name_m]Alaric[/name_m] [name_m]Grant[/name_m] or [name_m]Grant[/name_m] [name_m]Alaric[/name_m]. [name_m]Marshall[/name_m] has also been on my list, Im wondering if [name_m]Marshall[/name_m] [name_m]Alaric[/name_m] works? How did I never think about that combo before? I guess its kinda repetitive sounds so maybe that’s why.

These are great!!

I love [name_u]Calder[/name_u]! I have to say never heard that name before and I’m not totally sure of the pronunciation but its one that looks really nice written down!

[name_f]Aster[/name_f] for a boy
[name_u]Asher[/name_u] is also on my middles list - its a but too popular for a first but I feel it makes a really nice middle name

I also love [name_u]Auden[/name_u] and [name_m]Leander[/name_m]!
