|Picking a middle name or initial is just as important as finding a first name, and in general, the same naming guidelines can be used. You can be a little more creative though when finding baby names to use as a middle name, and choose a middle name that is unique, especially if you are using a traditional first name.
Your first decision is whether to use a middle name at all. They are becoming more and more popular and most people have at least one middle name.
Using a middle name can also make it easier to accommodate family traditions, since you can pick your own first name, and then use a grandparent's name as the middle name. It also allows couples to both be babynamers and choose one name each, since one can choose the first and the other can choose the middle name.
When picking a middle name, be sure that it sounds good and has some balance and rhythm with the first and last names that you choose. And make sure that it the initials do not create an acronym or spell a word (like Faith Alice Taylor = FAT) .
While our search engine doesn't find middle names specifically, you can use the baby name finder to search for a middle name and then enter your favorites into the middle name field as you search for a first name.
