Middle Name for Pascal?

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] all! We are TTC our second kid and working on our short list while we wait. We’re having a hard time coming up with middle names for [name_m]Pascal[/name_m] - the only family-honoring option is [name_m]Henry[/name_m], and we’re not wild about the clunky rhythm of Pas-cal [name_f]Hen[/name_f]-ry Last-name (all being two syllable names with first-syllable emphases). Can you help? We’d love to find a handful of nature, virtue, and just-sounds-good names to keep in our back pocket.

We’ve considered [name_m]Charles[/name_m], [name_m]Henry[/name_m], and [name_m]Peter[/name_m] from family members; Evergreen, [name_m]Forest[/name_m], [name_m]Heron[/name_m], [name_u]River[/name_u], and Lightning from nature; [name_m]Wolf/name_m from both and Makepeace as a virtue name. Nothing is clicking. Help us, Berries!

I love [name_m]Pascal[/name_m]!

[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_u]Dove[/name_u]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Fox[/name_m]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Josiah[/name_m]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Felix[/name_m]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_u]Elliot[/name_u]

Thanks, greyblue! I love the gentleness of [name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_u]Dove[/name_u] and [name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Josiah[/name_m] has a jauntiness to it (and I have an odd soft spot for the initials PJ?). I know my partner will love [name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m], too.

Thoughts on [name_u]Juniper[/name_u] or [name_m]Viridian[/name_m]?

I’m glad you liked some of them!!

[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_u]Juniper[/name_u] would be stunning (and it gives you PJ which I love)

My only hesitation with [name_u]Juniper[/name_u] (and [name_u]River[/name_u], for that matter) are that our surname starts with R.

I’m feeling inspired and getting more “out-there” I guess but what about [name_u]Falcon[/name_u], Blackbird, or Bluebird?

[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] is awesome!

[name_u]Juniper[/name_u] is good. I find [name_m]Viridian[/name_m] interesting and unexpected.

[name_m]Jonah[/name_m] (Means [name_u]Dove[/name_u]/[name_u]Peace[/name_u])

Holy [name_m]Moses[/name_m], [name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_u]Dove[/name_u] and [name_m]Pascal[/name_m] Evergreen are amazing!

The birds:
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] Ptarmigan
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] Hummingbird
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] Meadowlark
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Peregrine[/name_m]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_f]Sparrow[/name_f]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Crane[/name_m]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Hawk[/name_m]

The rest:
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_u]Valentine[/name_u]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_f]Avalon[/name_f]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Zephaniah[/name_m]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_u]Orion[/name_u]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Isidore[/name_m]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Isaiah[/name_m]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_f]Morrigan[/name_f]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Harry[/name_m]
[name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Algernon[/name_m]

river_dweller, I really like [name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Jasper[/name_m]! I hadn’t even thought about geological names but how warm and handsome does that name sound? Thank you!

thefairophelia, we had [name_m]Peregrine[/name_m] on our short list for our firstborn’s middle name. I’m not keen on the alliteration/initials with [name_m]Pascal[/name_m] but I’ll add [name_m]Peregrine[/name_m] into the mix with our other first name contenders. And [name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_u]Valentine[/name_u]!

I like [name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Julian[/name_m]. It gives you PJ, 3 syllables, and leads in nicely to your R last name. Using [name_u]River[/name_u] for example: [name_m]Pascal[/name_m] [name_m]Julian[/name_m] [name_u]River[/name_u], PJ [name_u]River[/name_u], PJR
