First Name for Middle Name Richard

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]! Not pregnant or TTC but if we have another boy in the future we’d really like to honour our grandfathers, who, coincidentally, were both called [name_m]Richard[/name_m]. I’m not crazy about it as a first name, so it will be in the middle, but we’re struggling to find a first name it goes with.

Are there any names that you do like? That would help narrow down suggestions. :slight_smile:

I like @silverose’s suggestions of [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m], [name_m]Samuel[/name_m], and [name_m]Augustus[/name_m]. Also…

[name_m]Barnaby[/name_m]

[name_m]Reuben[/name_m]
[name_m]Mathias[/name_m]
[name_u]Everett[/name_u]
[name_m]Oliver[/name_m]

My father & grandfather’s names are both [name_m]Richard[/name_m] so I’ve tried to think of some, too. These are just a few I’ve come up with.

[name_u]Drew[/name_u] [name_m]Richard[/name_m]
[name_m]Giovanni[/name_m] [name_m]Richard[/name_m]
[name_m]Archibald[/name_m] [name_m]Richard[/name_m]
[name_m]Charles[/name_m] [name_m]Richard[/name_m]
[name_u]Everest[/name_u] [name_m]Richard[/name_m]
[name_m]Kitt[/name_m] [name_m]Richard[/name_m]

[name_u]Lawrence[/name_u] [name_m]Richard[/name_m]
[name_m]Edmund[/name_m] [name_m]Richard[/name_m]
[name_m]Thomas[/name_m] [name_m]Richard[/name_m]
[name_m]Benedict[/name_m] [name_m]Richard[/name_m]
[name_m]Gilbert[/name_m] [name_m]Richard[/name_m]

I have a [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] and a [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f]! Ours are [name_u]Theo[/name_u] and [name_f]Coco[/name_f]. Their big brothers are [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] ‘[name_m]Seb[/name_m]’ and [name_m]Felix[/name_m] ‘[name_u]Fee[/name_u]’. Other names we liked for them were [name_m]Frederick[/name_m] nickname [name_u]Freddie[/name_u], [name_m]Nicholas[/name_m]/[name_m]Dominic[/name_m] nickname [name_u]Nico[/name_u], [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] nickname [name_m]Xander[/name_m], [name_m]Henry[/name_m] nickname [name_m]Hal[/name_m], [name_m]Evander[/name_m] nickname [name_u]Van[/name_u], and [name_u]Everett[/name_u] nickname [name_m]Rhett[/name_m].

[name_m]Henry[/name_m] [name_m]Richard[/name_m] would be so handsome!
