Middle name struggle

Ugh, I struggle with boy middle names so much. I am in love with [name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] but for the life of me cannot find THAT great middle name to complete it. We don’t really do honor names so just looking for something that compliments [name_m]Lachlan[/name_m].

This list is hopeless feeling to me but this is what I’ve managed to compile without really LOVING any yet:

[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] [name_u]Archer[/name_u]
[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] [name_u]Asher[/name_u]
[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] [name_m]Ansel[/name_m]
[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] [name_m]Evander[/name_m]
[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] [name_u]George[/name_u]
[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] [name_m]Marshall[/name_m]
[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] [name_m]Rafael[/name_m]
[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] [name_u]Remy[/name_u]
[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] [name_u]Beau[/name_u]
[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] [name_u]Lawrence[/name_u]- too L heavy
[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] [name_m]Garrett[/name_m]

Does this list inspire any suggestions or do any of these hit the mark for you name lovers out there? I think I am looking for something masculine but soft. Simple but sophisticated. Middle names are so hard and I know some people don’t think they matter or thst they aren’t used but it matters to me. I use my Middle name so as someone who does, I think its important to feel a name is complete but with boy names I struggle immensely. [name_f]My[/name_f] son’s name is [name_u]Elliott[/name_u] [name_u]Reese[/name_u] and I love his Middle name!

I love [name_u]Everett[/name_u] but I worry its much too similar to my son’s name [name_u]Elliott[/name_u].

I like [name_u]Alcott[/name_u], [name_u]Fox[/name_u] and [name_m]Rafferty[/name_m].

[name_f]My[/name_f] favorite is [name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] [name_m]Evander[/name_m] from your list. I feel like names flow better when the number of syllables is varied. However, the mn also depends on the surname.

I personally think it works nicely in the middle spot and wouldn’t be too confusing but can see your concern!

[name_m]Conan[/name_m]? :slight_smile:

[name_m]Conan[/name_m] sounds to similar with the n ending although I like [name_m]Conan[/name_m]. I suppose [name_u]Connor[/name_u] or [name_u]Connelly[/name_u] could work.
