How to choose a middle name for Theodore 

When it comes to making a final decision on a middle name for your baby you may be struggling to agree on a favourite in your family. 

To help with the process try these tips: 

  • Consider sentimental middle names. There may be a particular middle name that has sentimental meaning to your family. You don’t have to have a middle name that has a historic connection to relatives and loved ones, but lots of people do like to use a middle name from a relative. 
  • Sound it out. Say the name in full out loud so that you get a sense for how the first and middle name options sound with your surname. 
  • Write it down. Always write down your top choices in full so you can see what the name would look like. 
  • Take a pause. If you are struggling to agree on your favourite then each write down your top five middle name options. Place them on the fridge and take a week to consider them. You may find your mind has changed in that time. 
  • Consider the initials. Always think about what the initials of the baby’s full name would spell out, as you don’t want this to be anything unfortunate like Aidan Samuel Smith! 
  • Ask yourself if the name will suit an adult. Consider whether the name will work well for your child once they have become an adult. Something that seems quirky and cool for a baby may not be so great once they are grown up!
