Middle name Black

My maiden name is [name_m]Black[/name_m]. I’d love to use it as a middle name, but I’m not sure it sounds very good. Name choices so far are [name_m]Xavier[/name_m] and [name_f]Ivy[/name_f]. I was also thinking of names that mean [name_m]Black[/name_m]. Is that stupid? [name_u]Onyx[/name_u], [name_u]Raven[/name_u], Obsidian, for example. [name_m]Just[/name_m] looking for opinions!

I don’t think it’s stupid at all! I agree with “[name_m]Black[/name_m]” not sounding very appealing as a given name, but I can totally get behind using a name that has the same meaning. [name_u]Onyx[/name_u] is a great one, so are [name_u]Raven[/name_u] and Obsidian! I also enjoy the names you have picked out so far.

Here are some other names that mean black or something similar;

[name_f]Ciara[/name_f] / [name_f]Kiara[/name_f]
[name_f]Lela[/name_f] / [name_f]Lila[/name_f]

[name_m]Cole[/name_m] / [name_u]Colby[/name_u]

I think the middle name [name_m]Black[/name_m] is the cutest option. If I had that maiden name I’d use it for all of the kids middle names. There are other names that mean black or dark that aren’t so silly, but personally my taste is I wouldn’t pick something as blatantly scientific sounding like the ones you mentioned.

Some other options are [name_u]Blake[/name_u], [name_f]Opal[/name_f], [name_u]Jet[/name_u], [name_f]Melanie[/name_f], [name_m]Nigel[/name_m] and [name_m]Midnight[/name_m].

I think an alternative such as [name_u]Raven[/name_u] is a good option

Maiden names as a middle isn’t that uncommon, so it wouldnt be too strange. Especially if you paired if with another, more typical middle name. [name_m]Say[/name_m], [name_m]Xavier[/name_m] [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] [name_m]Black[/name_m] {surname}.
However, I think names of something black, or names meaning black or dark, sound a lot nicer. I like raven, particularly for a girl. [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] [name_u]Raven[/name_u], or [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] {other middle} [name_u]Raven[/name_u] would be nice.

I really like maiden names as middles and see no issue with [name_m]Black[/name_m] as a middle name. I think [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] [name_m]Black[/name_m] _____ and [name_m]Xavier[/name_m] [name_m]Black[/name_m] _____ look and sound lovely, as would a second middle name with [name_m]Black[/name_m], say something like [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] [name_m]Black[/name_m] _____ / [name_m]Xavier[/name_m] [name_u]Hudson[/name_u] [name_m]Black[/name_m] _____.
