Middle name for NEIL - DUE IN 2 WEEKS

[name]Hi[/name] guys!

My best friend is due in 2 weeks and needs your help!!! She and her hubby decided to name their son [name]NEIL[/name]… but they haven’t found a good middle name yet…

They need your help to find a good middle name for [name]Neil[/name]!

Thanks for your help!

It’s hard to fully account for flow without knowing the last name, but here are some suggestions:

[name]Neil[/name] [name]Orion[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Russell[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Isaac[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Augustus[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Patrick[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Solomon[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Alexander[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Reuben[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Franklin[/name]

As a help: their last name sounds like “giraffe”…

[name]Neil[/name] [name]Oliver[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Donovan[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Fletcher[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Fintan[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Theodore[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Anthony[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Harrison[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Timothy[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Wesley[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Zachariah[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Samson[/name]

[name]Neil[/name] [name]Dominic[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Oliver[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Christopher[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Frederick[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Anthony[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Andreas[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Cedric[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Finian[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Edmund[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Sylvester[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Thurstan[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Wesley[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Lucas[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Alexander[/name] “Giraffe”

With Giraffe, I think a longer middle (at least three syllables) sounds great!

[name]Neil[/name] [name]Benjamin[/name] (Then again, lots of J sound with giraffe…I love [name]Neil[/name] [name]Benjamin[/name], though) :slight_smile:
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Donovan[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Everett[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Gideon[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Harrison[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Augustin[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Abraham[/name]

Sorry for repeats! :slight_smile:

Best wishes to you and your friend!

[name]Neil[/name] [name]Patrick[/name]

[name]Neil[/name] [name]Michael[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Aidan[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Hunter[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Lucas[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Finley[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Connor[/name]

Thanks for your suggestions… I showed them [name]Katherine[/name] and [name]John[/name]. They told me that they’d prefer not to have a middle name that could be a last name… but [name]John[/name] came up with [name]Neil[/name] [name]Sullivan[/name] which is a last name too… In any case… THE name wasn’t suggested yet, but they liked the following ones:

[name]Neil[/name] [name]Patrick[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Lucas[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Aidan[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Finley[/name]

What do you think about [name]NEIL[/name] [name]SULLIVAN[/name]??

Other suggestions are welcome!

I like [name]Neil[/name] [name]Patrick[/name]. [name]Neil[/name] [name]Sullivan[/name] “Giraffe” is a little too wordy for me.

I think [name]Neil[/name] [name]Patrick[/name] Giraffe is great!

Maybe they would like [name]Neil[/name] [name]Donovan[/name] Giraffe?

([name]Donovan[/name] could be a surname, but I think it’s got much more of an established reputation as a first name than [name]Sullivan[/name] while still having a very similar style and feel and it flows better with the first and last name)

I am very pleased that I was able to help you find some suitable combos.

If you choose [name]Sullivan[/name] you will have a very ‘l’ heavy name and it also goes against your criteria of using surnames, so I would not keep this combo.

More combos

[name]Neil[/name] [name]Xavier[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Terrence[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Declan[/name]

[name]Neil[/name] [name]Henry[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Percival[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Andrew[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Emmett[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Alexander[/name]

[name]Love[/name] [name]Neil[/name] [name]Henry[/name]!

I showed them your new suggestions and I think seem to really like [name]Neil[/name] [name]Henry[/name]… Yesterday their neighbours just welcomed their son: [name]Patrick[/name] - so they don’t want to call their son [name]Neil[/name] [name]Patrick[/name]… After your feedback about [name]Neil[/name] [name]Sullivan[/name] I think that this one is out too…

When I last talked to them they seemed very certain about [name]Neil[/name] [name]Henry[/name]…but you can keep coming with suggestions, they can be very spontaneous (during the first months of pregnancy they were persuaded to call the baby [name]Noah[/name] [name]Samuel[/name] if it was a boy…) I don’t think that they are going to change again, but we don’t know…

[name]Neil[/name] [name]Boyd[/name] Giraffe
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Brady[/name] Giraffe
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Bryant[/name] Giraffe
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Gavan[/name] Giraffe
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Oscar[/name] Giraffe
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Seamus[/name] Giraffe
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Tiernan[/name] Giraffe

Good luck!

[name]LOVE[/name] [name]Neil[/name] [name]Henry[/name]–wish I had thought of it!

If [name]Patrick[/name] it ‘taken’ then what about [name]Padraig[/name]?

[name]Neil[/name] [name]Padraig[/name]
or
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Darragh[/name]

First off, I love the name [name]Neil[/name]. It was on my list for my daughter, [name]Sophie[/name]. But, after we found it was a girl, we went for [name]Sophie[/name]. [name]Neil[/name] is a handsome name.
I think these sound good:
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Patrick[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]James[/name] “Giraffe”
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] “Giraffe”
What kind of middle name are they going for?
