Okay I think I have it narrowed! (Maybe)

I think we have narrowed down to boy names we like and can use because other friends haven’t or they don’t sound similar to other names, etc.

Now we just need help with middle names. Boy middle names are hard!


I honestly really like all of the names but I have no idea where to go with middles. My daughter’s just came to me. I’d love the middle names to have some sort of meaning as the first names are all tied to family… Any suggestions? Also, which do you guys like better? Is [name_m]Lathe[/name_m] too weird??

[name_u]Brighton[/name_u] is my vote from your list. [name_m]Lathe[/name_m] sounds…“naughty” to me.

My favorites are [name_m]Thatcher[/name_m] and [name_u]Brighton[/name_u] from your list.

I vote [name_m]Thatcher[/name_m]!

Would you consider [name_m]Latham[/name_m] with the Nickname [name_m]Lathe[/name_m]? [name_m]Latham[/name_m] just sounds more “Namey” than [name_m]Lathe[/name_m]. :slight_smile:

The only one of the 3 that appeals to me is [name_m]Thatcher[/name_m].

I do think [name_m]Lathe[/name_m] is a little bit too weird, sorry. It’s a fairly ugly, clunky piece of machinery to me first and foremost and not a very attractive object to be named after. I think [name_m]Latham[/name_m] (as suggested above) might be a better option.

Middle names for [name_m]Thatcher[/name_m] and [name_u]Brighton[/name_u]:

[name_u]Brighton[/name_u] [name_m]Dax[/name_m]
[name_u]Brighton[/name_u] [name_m]Lathe[/name_m] (could work better in the middle?)
[name_u]Brighton[/name_u] [name_m]Kylo[/name_m]
[name_u]Brighton[/name_u] [name_m]Huxley[/name_m]

I love [name_m]Thatcher[/name_m]. [name_u]Brighton[/name_u] is cool. I don’t find [name_m]Lathe[/name_m] too weird personally - is it pronounced like [name_m]Laith[/name_m]? What kind of meaning do you want the middle name to have?

Thanks for the input guys! I’d really want my boys middle to be something that has virtue to it!

My favorite would be [name_m]Thatcher[/name_m], followed by [name_u]Brighton[/name_u], I agree with a pp that [name_m]Lathe[/name_m] may work better as a middle.
