Sadly, my husband usually gets to pick the middle names because I don't want to use them as first names. It is my way of secretly placating him while letting him think he has gotten his way. :) This go around however, it will be a first for us if this one is a boy because I will have chosen both names. If it is a girl, he is getting his 'reject' name in the middle lol

Since DH and I both have family names for middle names we continued that tradition with our kids. The problem is that after 5 kids we are running out of decent names to use. I was thinking of using a name that has special meaning to us for other reasons but I am not sure what we will do.

We name middle names after other family members. If it's a girl, this baby will get mine and my other daughter's middle name, Therese. If it's a boy - no idea yet!

For boys, I prefer to use a family name such as DH's first name or my father's first name. But for girls I'm not so specific, I like whatever flows and sounds pretty with the first name. I think it's mostly because there are too many common middle names for the women in my family. I'm just not a fan of common middle names like Ann or Marie.

We pick middle names that are family members names. DD is named after my mom & my grandmother. Her name is Isla Elizabeth Louise.
