Middle name for Cassius!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]! First time poster, long time lurker lol

My hubby and I have pretty much 100% decided to name our son (due [name_u]June[/name_u] 21st) [name_m]Cassius[/name_m] nn [name_m]Cash[/name_m]. We’re both in love with this name, and it’s been one of the only names we have agreed on all throughout this pregnancy and TTC for over a year. But in all this time I’ve not once found a middle name that I like that goes with [name_m]Cassius[/name_m] (pronounced cash-us) well enough that it’s stuck around for longer than a couple of days! Previously liked names that we ended up ditching fairly quickly were:
[name_m]Cassius[/name_m] [name_m]Drake[/name_m]/[name_u]Blake[/name_u]
[name_m]Cassius[/name_m] [name_m]Zane[/name_m]
[name_m]Cassius[/name_m] [name_u]Riley[/name_u]

Any and all suggestions are welcome, except for the following family names: [name_u]Michael[/name_u], [name_m]Preston[/name_m], [name_u]Grady[/name_u], [name_u]Ryan[/name_u], [name_m]Lewis[/name_m]

My husband is VERY picky so I’m sure he’ll narrow it down by a lot (or completely!) so any more suggestions are welcomed and encouraged!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m], back again with an update and STILL looking for the “perfect” middle name for our firstborn! :-?

25 weeks now and here is our new and improved list of middle names we [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] with [name_m]Cash[/name_m]:

[name_m]Cassius[/name_m] [name_m]Eli[/name_m]
[name_m]Cassius[/name_m] Atom
[name_m]Cassius[/name_m] [name_m]Drake[/name_m]
[name_m]Cassius[/name_m] [name_u]Drew[/name_u]
[name_m]Cassius[/name_m] [name_m]Maddox[/name_m]

Our last name clashes (imo) with [name_m]Maddox[/name_m] and my husband isn’t keen on it, but I adore the name and am not willing to give up on it yet lol! Italicized means that it’s my and my hubby’s faves. The other three he is neutral on/has no opinion.

Any more suggestions?

I really like [name_m]Cassius[/name_m] [name_m]Drake[/name_m] and [name_m]Cassius[/name_m] Atom.

I like [name_m]Cassius[/name_m] [name_u]Riley[/name_u] from your original list. I know of someone who gave their son that name too. :slight_smile:

Oh really?? Interesting. I’ve only ever known one male [name_u]Riley[/name_u], which is my husband. I love his name but he’s unsure about using it.

[name_u]Quinn[/name_u] and [name_f]Jade[/name_f] are VERY cool, also. Thank you both. :slight_smile:

[name_m]Cassius[/name_m] Atom is very cool! If you’re willing to go a bit more out there, I love this one best.

Second favourite is [name_m]Cassius[/name_m] [name_m]Eli[/name_m]. I know that doesn’t really help as they’re your favourites already, but I like the flow and sound of these two best.

[name_m]Maddox[/name_m] is great but you feel it clashes with your surname and I feel it’s a bit too similar in sound and rhythm to [name_m]Cassius[/name_m] (with the pronunciation you’re going for): CAH-shuhs MAH-duhks.

What did you decide on? We named our son [name_m]Cassius[/name_m] [name_m]Julius[/name_m] [name_m]Hernandez[/name_m] [name_m]Smith[/name_m]. Weird I know lol but there are no other smith boys on my side of the family, and with my dad passing last year, my boyfriend agreed that he should be a [name_m]Smith[/name_m] also.
