Middle name for Felix or Oscar

I have been thinking about this far too much lately and now everything sounds weird and I keep changing my mind. So would be grateful for assistance.

We have settled on [name]Felix[/name] or [name]Oscar[/name] as the first name but the middle name is foxing both me and my husband.

Our daughter’s two middle names are from her maternal and paternal great-grandmothers. We thought we would stick with tradition, however, we don’t really love any of the family names which would be - [name]Edward[/name]/[name]Edwin[/name], Shillington, [name]Jack[/name]/[name]John[/name], [name]Murray[/name] or [name]James[/name].

I would welcome any and all thoughts/suggestions.


I think [name]Edward[/name] and [name]James[/name] would work really well for style and flow with either [name]Felix[/name] or [name]Oscar[/name] :slight_smile:

But here are some variations you could consider for each:


[name]Felix[/name] [name]Edmund[/name]
[name]Oscar[/name] [name]Edison[/name]


[name]Felix[/name] [name]Evan[/name]
[name]Felix[/name] [name]Jenson[/name]
[name]Felix[/name] [name]Johan[/name]
[name]Felix[/name] [name]Jonas[/name]

[name]Oscar[/name] [name]Eoin[/name]
[name]Oscar[/name] [name]Ivo[/name]
[name]Oscar[/name] [name]Johan[/name]


[name]Felix[/name] Jacobus
[name]Felix[/name] [name]Jago[/name]
[name]Felix[/name] [name]Jeb[/name]

[name]Oscar[/name] [name]Jacoby[/name]
[name]Oscar[/name] [name]Seamus[/name]
[name]Oscar[/name] [name]Xanti[/name]

[name]Murray[/name]: (Scottish placename)

[name]Felix[/name] [name]Arran[/name]
[name]Felix[/name] [name]Harris[/name]

[name]Oscar[/name] [name]Boyd[/name]
[name]Oscar[/name] [name]Lewis[/name]

You could use the mns for either, I just matched them to the one I thought they went with best :slight_smile:

I agree that [name]Edward[/name] or [name]James[/name] would sound best with those names if you do choose to use a family name.

Some other choices:

I can’t resist - Are you guys fans of “The Odd Couple”?

Well they’re both great names and it sounds like you love them
both, since they’re your first picks have you thought about using them together? [name]Oscar[/name] [name]Felix[/name], [name]Felix[/name] [name]Oscar[/name]
looks good on paper and it sounds pretty nice.
hope this helps. good luck!

That’s a GREAT idea :slight_smile:

  1. [name]How[/name] long is your last name?
  2. Might you like to use variants of your names for your son’s middle name(s)?
  3. What IS your daughter’s name?
  4. Is this baby going to have two middle names, too?

Loving [name]Felix[/name]! [name]Oscar[/name] is cute, too, but it reminds me of [name]Oscar[/name] the Grouch ([name]Sesame[/name] [name]Street[/name]) and feels a bit, well, doggy. [name]Both[/name] really cool, hip names with classic, handsome feels! Well done! If you have a daughter named [name]Hazel[/name], it would just blow my mind - [name]Oscar[/name] and [name]Hazel[/name] or [name]Felix[/name] and [name]Hazel[/name] just sound SO right to me!

I kind of like your family names, but if you don’t, forget that!

[name]Oscar[/name] [name]Edmund[/name] [name]Felix[/name] - Rather than [name]Edward[/name] or [name]Edwin[/name]?
[name]Oscar[/name] Shillington [name]James[/name]
[name]Oscar[/name] [name]Murray[/name] [name]Jonathan[/name] - Rather than [name]John[/name]?

[name]Felix[/name] [name]Jacoby[/name] [name]Edward[/name] - Rather than [name]Jack[/name]?
[name]Felix[/name] [name]Anthony[/name] [name]Mercer[/name] - Rather than Shillington and [name]Murray[/name]?
[name]Felix[/name] [name]Edward[/name] [name]Jonathan[/name] - Rather than [name]John[/name]?

You might like other names, such as:

[name]Ebenezer[/name] - WOW!
[name]George[/name] - Or, how about [name]Gulliver[/name]?
[name]Michael[/name] - Though [name]Maxwell[/name] or [name]Marston[/name] would work well, too!
[name]Percival[/name] - Or, try the tamer [name]Peter[/name]…
[name]Quinn[/name] - Perhaps a tad bit feminine…
[name]Sebastian[/name] - Or, how about [name]Simon[/name]?
[name]Thaddeus[/name] - Or, try [name]Theodore[/name] or [name]Tobias[/name]!
[name]Ulysses[/name] - Cool!
[name]William[/name] - Or [name]Wilhelm[/name]…
[name]Xavier[/name] - Great saint name!
[name]Zacchaeus[/name] - Or, how about [name]Zachary[/name] or [name]Zachariah[/name]?

[name]Archibald[/name] - Or, try the softer [name]Archer[/name]…
[name]Bennett[/name] - [name]Benedict[/name] and [name]Benson[/name] are neat, too!
[name]Garrison[/name] - Or, how about [name]Griffin[/name]?
[name]Lewis[/name] - Or, how about [name]Lennox[/name]?
[name]Orville[/name] - But, this isn’t really a surname…
[name]Percy[/name] - Sounds very lord-ish…
[name]Regis[/name] - Surname name? Probably not. Try [name]Roderick[/name]!
[name]Sullivan[/name] - Or, how about [name]Seeley[/name]?
[name]Thatcher[/name] - Great name with literary appeal…
[name]Ulrich[/name] - I don’t know where I pulled that one from…
[name]Wyatt[/name] - Sounds a bit more modern…

Good luck!
