Middle name for Leonidas (Leo)

I’m going to give us a similar but fake last name so you can get the feel of the sounds. Our last name starts with a C and is a little like [name_u]Colorado[/name_u], more like Cordado.

I have a 4 year old son names [name_m]Maximus[/name_m] [name_u]James[/name_u] Cordado

[name_f]My[/name_f] husband liked [name_m]Maximus[/name_m] like from Gladiator and we both liked [name_u]Max[/name_u].
I picked [name_u]James[/name_u] because I thought a 3 syllable first name needed a short middle name. I also think [name_u]James[/name_u] lies in this funny in between place where its one syllable but almost stays on the tongue like two syllables. So it would sound good whether we say [name_u]Max[/name_u] [name_u]James[/name_u] or [name_m]Maximus[/name_m] [name_u]James[/name_u].

[name_u]New[/name_u] baby brother is due [name_u]March[/name_u] 2022. I’m nearly 100% on [name_m]Leonidas[/name_m] (Leo) because I want another warrior name and I really like [name_u]Leo[/name_u] and the combo of [name_u]Max[/name_u] and [name_u]Leo[/name_u].

I’m struggling with a middle name for [name_m]Leonidas[/name_m] __ Cordado

I actually would like [name_u]James[/name_u] if that wasn’t already taken. I want it to sound good said both [name_m]Leonidas[/name_m] __ Cordado or [name_u]Leo[/name_u] __ Cordado

And it needs some gravitas to hang with a strong name like [name_m]Leonidas[/name_m]

Would love any ideas or suggestions. Thank you!


Great names! I love Max and Leo!
I would choose Leonidas Paul

True and Ryan also come to mind.

Thanks! [name_m]Paul[/name_m] is actually my FIL’s name. You’re making me give it a second look.

Thanks for the help! I like [name_u]Jude[/name_u] and [name_m]Zane[/name_m] so far. [name_u]Hayes[/name_u] is really growing on me. I still have to let these sit and simmer for a while.

Thank you so much for the help and it really means a lot to hear you like the name [name_m]Leonidas[/name_m]!

Thank you! [name_u]Grey[/name_u] and [name_m]Grant[/name_m] are on my list too. I’m just having such a hard time because nothing is jumping to the front for me.

Thank you! I really like the name [name_u]Owen[/name_u]. I’m so glad you like [name_u]Max[/name_u] and [name_u]Leo[/name_u] too.

Thanks for the help! I’m so glad you like [name_u]Max[/name_u] and [name_u]Leo[/name_u] too. It’s honestly probably not that original, I’ve seen it in books and website lists of good sibling names. But I decided I still love them together anyway. I’m just having such a hard time because nothing is jumping to the front for me for a middle name. Luckily I still have a while to say these over and over in my head to see what sticks.
