I like Henry

I am considering naming our second boy [name]Henry[/name] [name]Wyatt[/name]. My husband likes [name]Wyatt[/name] and I like [name]Henry[/name].

What do you think of the name combination? Can you think of any other first name or middle name choices? Try it with the last name [name]Myer[/name].

I like that combo! [name]Henry[/name] [name]Wyatt[/name]…

[name]James[/name] (best as middle name)

I think these would be great choices to go with your last name!

Oh, I absolutely [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Henry[/name], too! I know it’s getting popular now, but it’s just one of those names I love too much to give up! :slight_smile:

[name]Henry[/name] [name]Augustin[/name] [name]Myer[/name]
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Anderson[/name] [name]Myer[/name]
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Donovan[/name] [name]Myer[/name] (I’ll do some surnames for your husband)
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Davidson[/name] [name]Myer[/name]
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Ellison[/name] [name]Myer[/name]

[name]Henry[/name] [name]Maxfield[/name] [name]Myer[/name]
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Nathaniel[/name] [name]Myer[/name] (a bit N heavy, though)

[name]Henry[/name] [name]Sullivan[/name] [name]Myer[/name]
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] [name]Myer[/name]

I really love a longer middle in the middle!

The following have two syllables in the middle, which I think your husband prefers (not sure, though!):

[name]Henry[/name] [name]Abbott[/name] [name]Myer[/name]
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Calvin[/name] [name]Myer[/name]
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Davis[/name] [name]Myer[/name]
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Myer[/name]
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Hudson[/name] [name]Myer[/name]
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Hawthorne[/name] [name]Myer[/name] (I got [name]Hawthorne[/name] from [name]Susan[/name]'s list…)
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Quinlan[/name] [name]Myer[/name]

Best wishes to you! :slight_smile:

I love [name]Owen[/name] and [name]James[/name]. I’m glad you mentioned them, I hadn’t thought of them as middles until now!

Thanks [name]Jill[/name]! I have to admit, I’m a [name]Jill[/name] fan too! Thanks for all your great posts. I really value your opinion!

My husband does like the surname as a middle name scheme. [name]How[/name] thoughtful of you to remember.

[name]Love[/name] [name]Hawthorne[/name]! So cool! [name]Sebastian[/name] is cool too as a middle. I think it offsets the classic, formal feeling of [name]Henry[/name] and brings it into the now. I think that is what we were going for with [name]Wyatt[/name].

Thanks again!

[name]Love[/name] it!

There’s a “[name]Henry[/name] [name]Clay[/name]” in my father’s geneaology that I’ve always considered…

[name]Love[/name] [name]Jill[/name]'s suggestion of [name]Henry[/name] [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Myer[/name]! So cute!!!

[name]How[/name] do you pronounce [name]Dashiell[/name]?

I like [name]Henry[/name] [name]Wyatt[/name] [name]Myer[/name]. I like some of the other suggestions too. I know some people don’t like the 2-2-2 syllable, or names that sort of rhyme together like [name]Wyatt[/name] and [name]Myer[/name]. I would not put [name]Wyatt[/name] in the first name for that reason, as people often go through life as their first and last name and the middle name hardly ever comes up. However, some people of note do go by all their names in the history books. I think of [name]Oliver[/name] [name]Wendell[/name] [name]Holmes[/name] or [name]William[/name] [name]Henry[/name] [name]Harrison[/name] sometimes, for examples of how will this name flow if for some reason, one becomes known by their full name and referred to that way.

[name]Henry[/name] [name]Wyatt[/name] [name]Myer[/name] sounds like a name that has a ring to it. I realize some people prefer a little asymmetry in the syllables if possible, but I think everyone’s name starts to fall into a pattern this way, a formula. I like to say and hear [name]Henry[/name] [name]Wyatt[/name] [name]Myer[/name].

I like other suggestions too, but so far this is still my favorite.

Thanks, Mamapajama! I’m a fan of you, too! :slight_smile: (That was so nice of [name]Susan[/name] to do for me…) :slight_smile:

I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Dashiell[/name]! [name]Lyndsay[/name], a poster here, named her little boy [name]Dashiell[/name], and I think it’s amazing.

I pronounce [name]Dashiell[/name] “[name]DASH[/name]-ill,” with the e being silent. (I suppose I also could have written that “[name]DASH[/name]-ell,” with the i being silent, too, as it’s basically the same both ways for me. I looked it up and found this pronunciation, so I think it’s right.

([name]Lyndsay[/name], if you’re reading this, how do you pronounce [name]Dash[/name]'s name?) :slight_smile:

Best wishes to you! :slight_smile:

I always want to say it’s Dashle, but I’m afraid someone will think that means (for whatever weird reason) that it’s pronounced like [name]Dash[/name]-lee. It’s [name]Dash[/name]-L, right? I say it like candle or castle only with a DASHle. I think people wonder how much emphasis is in the last part, and I think just the L. Forget there are even vowels there. :slight_smile:

I love the name [name]Henry[/name], and it sounds wonderful with so many middle names. Yes, it is getting popular, but that is because it’s such a great name. I love it with your last name. [name]Love[/name] [name]Wyatt[/name], too!

[name]Karen[/name], that’s how I say it, too, but I didn’t write out the pronunciation very well! :slight_smile:

I love the name [name]Henry[/name], and it sounds wonderful with so many middle names. Yes, it is getting popular, but that is because it’s such a great name. I love it with your last name. [name]Love[/name] [name]Wyatt[/name], too! But then you would have the 2-2-2 syllable arrangement in his name which I like to avoid. I would go with either a 1, 3, or 4 syllable middle name. My son has a 2-3-2 syllable full name, and my daughter’s is 2-4-2.

No, you did great. I think it’s hard to really write it down every way so it sounds when people read it not like DashELL or DaSheel or [name]Dash[/name]-lee. I think most people probably can guess from the phonetic, but whenever I read something trying to be phonetic, I personally feel like suddenly I can’t read and I’m probably still saying it wrong. We do our best. One thing I discovered or tried today is to look a name up on youtube and see if you can’t find someone being introduced or say their name to hear it. Works so far!

Thanks for everyone’s replies! I really like [name]Henry[/name] and had never thought of the syllable scheme of his name until now. Very good info to have!

Also, thanks for the discussion and clarification on [name]Dashiell[/name]. It’s a very interesting name that I think has a better sound than spelling.

Thanks again!
