Middle name help!
Thu, 05-06-2010 - 11:40am
I am in love with the name Henry for my son...dh is on board too, yay!!! I'm having trouble with the middle name though. I've found some that I like (William, Jacob, Isaac) but nothing is really jumping out at me unfortunately. Other names we like are Trent William, Grace Olivia, and Ella Rose if that helps any. Our last name starts with a G. Also, we don't want any family names for his middle name so please don't suggest that. I seem to be stuck for Henry's middle name...any suggestions you can provide are greatly appreciated!!

I like Henry too! Great name!

I think if your last name begins with a G, and Henry begins with an H, then a middle name beginning with an M would be a natural consonant to say in between all three. Just seems to roll off the tongue.

I also think a middle name beginning with a vowel would be a very smooth and easy-to-say choice.

The first name that popped in my head was Henry Alexander, but then initials would be HAG. I also like Henry Michael and Henry Joseph.
