I’m new to this forum, but have been looking around for the last couple of weeks while I try and find names for our second baby due in [name]May[/name]. Gender unknown. Our first child, a boy, has a traditional Irish name that’s very uncommon where we live. We’re not necessarily sticking with an Irish theme, and we don’t want something too popular. That said, these might not make the cut because of popularity… Anyway, I can’t come up with middle names for these!
So for a girl: [name]Tess[/name]; for a boy: [name]Quinn[/name]. Our last name is 3 syllables, but I think a 3-syllable middle name would work best, or else a two-syllable name with the emphasis on the second syllable.
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Marie[/name] (except I dislike [name]Marie[/name] a lot, even though [name]Mary[/name] is a family name on both sides)
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Caroline[/name] (not crazy about [name]Caroline[/name], just using it as an example)
I don’t like [name]Tessa[/name] and [name]Theresa[/name] is my [name]SIL[/name]. So if it’s [name]Tess[/name], it’ll be just [name]Tess[/name].
For a boy, we liked the middle name [name]John[/name] (also a family name) but it sounds terrible with [name]Quinn[/name]. Again, I like [name]Quinn[/name] and not [name]Quinlan[/name], [name]Quinton[/name], [name]Quincy[/name], etc. I’m such a pain, aren’t I?
