Middle name help!

I’m looking for middle name suggestions for [name_m]Charles[/name_m]/[name_u]Charlie[/name_u]. We’ll put [name_m]Charles[/name_m] on the birth certificate so he has the option when he’s older and because there are so many little girl Charlies now, but I want something that goes equally well with both because I imagine when I’m yelling across the house, it’ll be “[name_u]Charlie[/name_u] MN!” and not “[name_m]Charles[/name_m] MN!”

[name_u]Charlie[/name_u] is an honor name, so the middle will be uniquely his. Looking for something not overly common, but that is still a recognizable name, preferably with a Hebrew or English origin, but that’s in no way a deal-breaker. Word names are likely out. I threw out [name_m]Arrow[/name_m] to hubby, that was quickly “shot down” (couldn’t resist the pun :D). Hubby likes [name_m]Charles[/name_m] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m], and while I love how distinguished it is, I feel like there are probably a lot of them out there. But it’s still an option.

Current contenders:

[name_m]Charles[/name_m]/[name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_u]Reid[/name_u]
[name_m]Charles[/name_m]/[name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_u]Camden[/name_u] (has significance to us)
[name_m]Charles[/name_m]/[name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_m]Isaiah[/name_m]
[name_m]Charles[/name_m]/[name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_m]Bennett[/name_m]

When it was just going to be [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] on the birth certificate, I was set on [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_m]Ezra[/name_m], but I don’t like [name_m]Charles[/name_m] [name_m]Ezra[/name_m], it sounds lispy to me.

Would love to hear suggestions and thoughts on the current list!

I adore [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_m]Bennett[/name_m] :slight_smile: and [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_u]Reid[/name_u].

[name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_m]Elijah[/name_m] / [name_m]Charles[/name_m] [name_m]Elijah[/name_m]
[name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_m]Riordan[/name_m] / [name_m]Charles[/name_m] [name_m]Riordan[/name_m]
[name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_m]Oswald[/name_m] / [name_m]Charles[/name_m] [name_m]Oswald[/name_m]
[name_u]Charlie[/name_u] Pringle / [name_m]Charles[/name_m] Pringle [no idea why I like this!]
[name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_m]Nicodemus[/name_m] / [name_m]Charles[/name_m] [name_m]Nicodemus[/name_m]

[name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_m]Roman[/name_m] / [name_m]Charles[/name_m] [name_m]Roman[/name_m]

I really like [name_m]Charles[/name_m] [name_u]Camden[/name_u]!

Or, maybe [name_m]Charles[/name_m] [name_m]Tennyson[/name_m]?

I love [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_u]Reid[/name_u] and [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_m]Bennett[/name_m]. If you like [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_m]Ezra[/name_m], how about:

[name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_m]Levi[/name_m]
[name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_u]Ellis[/name_u]

[name_m]Charles[/name_m] [name_m]Bennett[/name_m] is stunning. I would definitely be inclined to go with [name_m]Charles[/name_m] on the birth certificate for, as you said, the option later down the track.

Thank you for the feedback and suggestions! I love that you all seem to really get my style.

I really like [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] - that’s definitely getting solid consideration! [name_m]Brooks[/name_m] and [name_m]Judah[/name_m] were on my early list, but hubby unfortunately hated both, which is a bummer, because [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_m]Brooks[/name_m] especially sounded great with our last name. [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]/[name_u]Theo[/name_u] is my name if we ever have a second boy, so I don’t want to use it as a middle only to want it as a first down the line!

I love [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] [name_u]Reid[/name_u] and [name_m]Charles[/name_m] [name_u]Ellis[/name_u]! Either of those get my vote! I almost like [name_m]Charles[/name_m] [name_u]Camden[/name_u], but it also sounds almost too hoity-toity?
