Need a Middle Name for Hugh!

[name]Hi[/name], berries! I am due in [name]December[/name] and my husband and I are not going to find out the baby’s sex, so we are picking a girl’s name and a boy’s name. We are set on the girl’s name, but we are stuck on the boy’s. We have different name tastes (i.e., he keeps suggesting names like [name]Rufus[/name] and [name]Virgil[/name] while I prefer names like [name]Henry[/name] and [name]Keir[/name]). Miraculously, though, we both love [name]Hugh[/name]. Now we need a middle name! Our last name is a two-syllable Hispanic name that begins with an “L”, so I’d like something that’s three syllables or longer and doesn’t start with an L or an H. Right now, I’m liking, but not loving [name]Benjamin[/name]. Any ideas??

With the one syllable [name]Hugh[/name] and a two syllable Spanish surname, I would go with a three or more middle name. [name]Hugh[/name] [name]Benjamin[/name] is ok but not ideal. Here are some suggestions. Good luck, [name]Mischa[/name].
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Alexander[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Solomon[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Everett[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Gabriel[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Leopold[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Benedict[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Tobias[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Abraham[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Malachi[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Leander[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Atticus[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Theodore[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Barnaby[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Nathaniel[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Matthias[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Constantine[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Cornelius[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Lysander[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Dominic[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Maximilian[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Raphael[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Xavier[/name]

In honor of the baby’s Spanish heritage…
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Francisco[/name] - swoon!
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Rafael[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Alejandro[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Fernando[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Orlando[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Mateo[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Rodolfo[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Ramiro[/name]
[name]Hugh[/name] [name]Salvador[/name]

I’m not that good at middle names, but I just wanted to say I love the name [name]Hugh[/name]! I argued hard for it to no avail. I like [name]Hugh[/name] [name]Benjamin[/name] actually. I adore the name [name]Benjamin[/name] partly because that’s my husband’s name. I agree with the pp that it might be cool to have a Spanish middle name. Some I like are [name]Mateo[/name], [name]Andreas[/name], and [name]Patricio[/name].

I love suggestions of [name]Hugh[/name] [name]Xavier[/name] and [name]Hugh[/name] [name]Rafael[/name], i might shy away from names ending in O since you have an O sound in your last name. :slight_smile:

[name]Even[/name] though [name]Hugo[/name] [name]Xavier[/name] L would sound amazing to me.

Good luck!

Thank you for the suggestions! I love [name]Hugh[/name] [name]Alexander[/name], [name]Hugh[/name] [name]Benedict[/name] and [name]Hugh[/name] [name]Xavier[/name]. [name]Hugh[/name] [name]Francisco[/name] is also beautiful. [name]Hugh[/name] [name]Xavier[/name] would work especially well, since DH’s father’s name is [name]Javier[/name], it’s be a nice way to honor him!
