Middle name for Neil

[name]Hi[/name] ladies,

If this baby is a boy, we would like to honor my husband’s grandfather by naming him [name]Neil[/name]. We just can’t figure out the perfect middle name that goes with it. Our last name is [name]Stevenson[/name]. I am due in 2.5 weeks. I want a middle name that I love just as much as the first name!

Thank you SOO much!

I guess it depends on whether you want to go traditional, spunky, modern etc. with the middle but I can give you some options that sound good to get started. :slight_smile: I love [name]Neil[/name] BTW, it’s my grandfather and uncles names AND its my DH’s middle!

[name]Neil[/name] [name]Alexander[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Christopher[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Dexter[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]River[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Calder[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Edward[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Theodore[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Milo[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Rupert[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Arthur[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Everett[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]

[name]Neil[/name] [name]Richard[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]

Thank you so much for the reply! I totally forgot to say my style. I like quarky and not too common but not off the way weird either. Some names I like are:

Ned
Zion
Emil
Anders
Clouse (norwegian fav)
Darius
Arnold
Boaz
Floyd
Irving
Arne
Eleazar
Omar
Luc
Jules
Hamish
Tobias
Barnaby

The problem is that so many of my favorite names either start or end with an s or n, both of which don’t go with my last name!

I thought of [name]Edward[/name] first, but others could be

[name]Neil[/name] [name]Michael[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Jacob[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Matthew[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Joseph[/name]

[name]Neil[/name] is quite hard to match with a middle! From the names you say you like above, I think these could actually work:

[name]Neil[/name] [name]Arnold[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Irving[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Barnaby[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]

Also, how about:

[name]Neil[/name] [name]Desmond[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Jasper[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Ignatius[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Cedric[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Valentine[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Gilbert[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Alastair[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]
[name]Neil[/name] [name]Clement[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name]

I second the previous poster on [name]Arnold[/name] and [name]Barnaby[/name]. These jumped out to me from your list. Good luck!
