Think About the Surname
When choosing a name it’s important to make sure it flows right with both the first name/surname and first name/middle name/surname. People don’t use their middle names all of the time so a name that only sounds right when the middle name is included is no good.
Don’t Forget the Initials
When choosing a middle name for your child, don’t forget to take into account the initials. For each of the names you’re considering, write down the initials combination it will create to make sure it doesn’t spell anything unpleasant or rude. This is even more important if you decide to have two middle names as it increases the number of words you could potentially create. You might find you need to discount all middle names starting with a certain letter because of the word it spells. For example, if you have chosen Thomas as your first name and your last name is Timms, you won’t want a middle name starting with I.
As well as words that can be spelt out, look out for initials that are an acronym for something you’d rather your child wasn’t associated with.
