Middle Name For Theodore?

I really adore the name [name_m]Theodore[/name_m], but I can’t seem to figure out the “perfect” middle name to go with it. I have some that I like, but nothing that just clicks like some of my other favorite combos.

What middle name would you pair with [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]?

Here’s some I like, but don’t know if I love:

[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Bruno[/name_m]
[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Maxwell[/name_m]
[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_u]James[/name_u]
[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Amos[/name_m]
[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Milo[/name_m]
Theodore Ezra
Theodore Aries
Theodore Max
Theodore Graham
Theodore Barlowe
Theodore Cormac
Theodore Porter
Theodore Silas

I may like the idea of pairing is with a shorter and more quirky middle name since [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] is such a classic.

Would love your thoughts!

Though I’d fear with [name_m]Graham[/name_m], he’d get the nickname [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] [name_m]Graham[/name_m] lol

[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Silas[/name_m] is great!

I immediately thought of Teddy Graham too!

Here’s some ideas:
Theodore Jack
Theodore Atlas
Theodore Eli/Elias
Theodore Cole
Theodore Basil
Theodore Jude
Theodore Grant
Theodore Kai
Theodore Brooks
Theodore Birch
Theodore Fox
Theodore Leif
Theodore Slade
Theodore Lyle
Theodore Finn/Flynn
Theodore Otto
Theodore Otis
Theodore Gus
Theodore Arlo
Theodore Calvin
Theodore Clive
Theodore Cyrus

Out of your combos, I like Theodore Bruno and Theodore Max. I love the name Milo, but for some reason I don’t like how it sounds with Theodore.

All great combos! Thank you for sharing :slight_smile: I like the sound of [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u]! I actually have [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] down as a girl’s favorite, but I could totally see it working with [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]. [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Brooks[/name_m] is nice, too. [name_m]Brooks[/name_m] is actually my dads name.

[name_m]Bruno[/name_m] has some meaning because my maiden name is [name_m]Brown[/name_m] and my husband and I walked in to our wedding reception to a [name_m]Bruno[/name_m] [name_u]Mars[/name_u] song hahah I know that sounds silly, but it feels meaningful to me. [name_m]Just[/name_m] wasn’t sure if it sounded good with [name_m]Theodore[/name_m].

I like [name_u]Max[/name_u], as well. I’ve always thought [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Maxwell[/name_m] was a good combo and I still think it sounds great, but I’m not a fan of the two lengthy names together. [name_m]Just[/name_m] not my style.

[name_m]Silas[/name_m] and [name_m]Milo[/name_m] are old favorites of mine. I quite like them in the middle name spot.

I really like the suggestion of [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Jack[/name_m] (he could always go by TJ if he ever wanted to).

I also like something short and unexpected as someone else mentioned [name_m]Fox[/name_m].

[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] is such a lovely name that I think you could pick virtually anything for a middle.

I like [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Maxwell[/name_m], [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Ezra[/name_m], and [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Silas[/name_m]

That’s true. I think that’s what makes it so hard picking “the one.”

I’m not a huge fan of the name [name_m]Ezra[/name_m], but my husband really likes it. So I think he’d really like this pairing!

I’m still looking for some more opinion :slight_smile:

I’ll give this one more stab! Still looking for the perfect MN for [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]!

Thanks for your input! :slight_smile:

I like [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Hart[/name_m], [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Jack[/name_m] and [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Caspar[/name_m]

how about [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Joseph[/name_m] or [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_u]Elliott[/name_u]

Thank you for your input! [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Caspar[/name_m] is a nice name. I love your 2 suggestions, but I have name associations to both [name_m]Joseph[/name_m] and [name_u]Elliot[/name_u] that make them not usable. Though I do love the sound of [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_u]Elliot[/name_u]!

I like fun short middle names with a [name_m]Theodore[/name_m].

[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Birch[/name_m]

[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Bridger[/name_m]
[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_u]Owen[/name_u]

Ohh [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Birch[/name_m] is a nice name!

If we have another boy he will be [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Louis[/name_m]. I really like the combination - I think they work well together! Also considered [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_u]Laurence[/name_u].
