Unique middles for Ian

So after learning that [name_m]Ian[/name_m] is a variation of [name_m]John[/name_m] (my husbands name) we wanted to add it to our name list. We have such a difficult time with middles and were wondering if any berries had some good ideas?

Initially we liked [name_m]Ian[/name_m] [name_m]Wilder[/name_m] since it’s a bit more uncommon but we don’t love it. I’d like a more unusual middle since [name_m]Ian[/name_m] is a fairly common name. It doesn’t have to be “weird” but something a bit more unusual and unexpected. Only rule is no “T” names as the initials would be ITCH.

Our top picks are [name_m]Fox[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] and [name_f]Aria[/name_f] Estellise. Boy names we like include [name_m]Asher[/name_m], [name_u]Constantine[/name_u], [name_u]Dorian[/name_u], [name_u]Kai[/name_u], [name_u]Lyric[/name_u] and [name_u]Rory[/name_u]. [name_m]Just[/name_m] to give you an idea of our naming style and taste.

I really like the idea of [name_m]Ian[/name_m] [name_u]Harper[/name_u]. I adored [name_u]Harper[/name_u] for a girls name (it was a top pick) but when I discovered how trendy and popular it was, I kind of pushed it to the side. So seeing it as a middle for a boy is actually really intriguing.

I like [name_m]Ian[/name_m] [name_m]Wilder[/name_m], personally. I would suggest [name_m]Wesley[/name_m] too but I have no idea how popular it is.

[name_f]Glad[/name_f] you like [name_m]Ian[/name_m] [name_u]Harper[/name_u] :slight_smile:

I have to say, I adore [name_m]Ian[/name_m] [name_m]Wilder[/name_m]-- we are also havIng trouble with a middle name and I love [name_m]Wilder[/name_m] but it doesn’t work with our last name. I think it flows so nicely with [name_m]Ian[/name_m] and doesn’t strike me as overly common at all. Other ideas for MN:
