Baby boy called Oliver

If you’ve decided Oliver is your top choice for a first name then you’re here now because you need help with a middle name! I’ve got some classy, cool, unique and boho middle name choices, plus their meanings, to help you pick!

What does Oliver mean?

Oliver is an Old French and English name with connections to the Latin word olivarius, which means olive tree planter. 

Other meanings for the name Oliver include ancestor’s descendants. 

Although Oliver itself is a cute name, people love to shorten it to Ollie or Oly. 

Famous Olivers include actors Oliver Reed and Oliver Platt as well as politician Oliver Cromwell. 

Oliver has been in the top boys’ names in England and Wales since 2013, according to the ONS. The female version of the name – Olivia – has also been a popular choice since 2016.  

The name is also a popular choice in Australia and the US. 

What names go with Oliver?

Oliver is a three-syllable name so lends itself well to one or two syllable middle names. Combinations that sound great include Oliver Cruz, Oliver David and Oliver Edward. 

I also think Oliver Flynn is a great combination. 

As Oliver is quite a popular name it can be nice to choose a lesser used, unusual middle name that creates a slightly different spin. This is why I like the name combination Oliver Gatsby or Oliver Rocco.
