What do you think of Owen? Middle name suggestions?

So far, the only boy name DH and I have had any agreement on is [name]Owen[/name]. I’m not sure I loooove it, but it’s growing on me. Siblings are [name]Molly[/name], [name]Matthew[/name], and [name]Callie[/name]. My dad’s middle name is [name]Edward[/name]. I’ve considered [name]Owen[/name] [name]Edward[/name], but DH thinks it sounds bad. His name would be [name]Owen[/name] [name]Edward[/name] [name]Lucas[/name] (Lucas is our last name). [name]Do[/name] you think it works? Any other middle name suggestions?

Another idea is [name]Charlie[/name] or [name]Charles[/name] [name]Edward[/name] with a nn [name]Charlie[/name]. However, I’m worried that [name]Callie[/name] and [name]Charlie[/name] is a bit too similar. And, I don’t really care for the name [name]Charles[/name], I only like the nn [name]Charlie[/name].

[name]Alex[/name] is also on both our lists, but it’s really popular. And, I’m not sure I like it as much as [name]Owen[/name].

I like that [name]Charles[/name] [name]Edward[/name]/[name]Charlie[/name] would continue the MMCC thing, but I agree that [name]Callie[/name] and [name]Charlie[/name] are pretty close. I think [name]Owen[/name] [name]Edward[/name] is great. Why does he think it sounds bad? Because of all the vowel sounds? I think the family significance of [name]Edward[/name] trumps the slight flow issues with [name]Owen[/name] [name]Edward[/name]. I think [name]Molly[/name], [name]Matthew[/name], [name]Callie[/name], and [name]Owen[/name] are great together! You could also do something like [name]Owen[/name] [name]Charles[/name]? Although if you don’t like [name]Charles[/name], that might not be the best solution…

Good luck!

I love both [name]Charles[/name] and [name]Owen[/name]! I think that they would both sound great with your sibset. I don’t think that [name]Charlie[/name] and [name]Callie[/name] are too close at all. I do think the MMCC theme is cute but I also really like [name]Owen[/name] with you other children’s names. I think either choice would be great! Good luck! I wish I could have been more help!

I love [name]Owen[/name]! I plan on naming our second son [name]Owen[/name]. A strong and sturdy name. I think [name]Owen[/name] [name]Edward[/name] [name]Lucas[/name] works, although [name]Lucas[/name] does seem like it belongs with [name]Owen[/name] [name]Edward[/name] to me. I think [name]Owen[/name] [name]Edward[/name] sounds good by itself though. Here are some other ideas:
[name]Owen[/name] [name]David[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Jeffery[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Caleb[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Graham[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Emmett[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Rhys[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Tobias[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Atticus[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Reed[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Nicolas[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Maxwell[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Wyatt[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Issac[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Levi[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Hunter[/name]

Thought of a couple more :slight_smile:
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Spencer[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Porter[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Brooks[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Drake[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Walker[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Parker[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Knox[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Beckett[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Tucker[/name]

I really like [name]Owen[/name]. It’s on our own list. The only problem is all of my DH’s names for boys sound kind of similar to each other in terms of rhythm/syllables and sometimes are all variants of the same name, so if we have 2+ boys we’ll really be up the proverbial creek! :smiley:

Our combos for [name]Owen[/name] were/are:

[name]Owen[/name] [name]Piers[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Heath[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Malachi[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Finn[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Hamish[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Patrick[/name] (DH vetoed [name]Patrick[/name], grr)
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Gabriel[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Henry[/name] (DH vetoed [name]Henry[/name], double grrr)
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Rhys[/name]
[name]Owen[/name] [name]Saul[/name]

I should clarify… [name]Lucas[/name] is our last name!!

I definitely would go with [name]Owen[/name]. It is climbing in the popularity charts (I know several little [name]Owens[/name] in the Midwest), but I really like it. [name]Owen[/name] [name]Edward[/name] sounds great, and I like the repeating “w.” I think it goes alright with [name]Molly[/name], [name]Matthew[/name], and [name]Callie[/name].

I really don’t care for [name]Charles[/name], but I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Charlie[/name] by itself. I don’t think [name]Charlie[/name] and [name]Callie[/name] are any more alike than [name]Molly[/name] and [name]Callie[/name] - to me, they just have the “lee” ending sound and both start with a C (although with completely different sounds).

To be quite honest, I love [name]Molly[/name], [name]Matthew[/name], [name]Callie[/name], and [name]Charlie[/name]. I like the MMCC pattern (and I’m not huge on alliteration!), and I think the names all have a similar feel. My vote is definitely for [name]Charlie[/name] [name]Edward[/name] [name]Lucas[/name]!

I know an owen… and he is [name]Owen[/name] [name]Joshua[/name]… I love the sound of this name!

I hate [name]Owen[/name]! I think Oywyykn is better.

[name]Owen[/name] is handsome. [name]Owen[/name] [name]Edward[/name] has some repeating sounds which is a good bet why it sounds funny to you. I like it though. it has meaning to you and and [name]Owen[/name] is your favorite.
