The Importance of a Middle Name

How important a middle name is depends on how it will be used.

A middle name holds some weight simply because it is used for identification. Some people choose to call their children by their middle names. Others choose middle names based on that name's meaning. Some parents call their children by both the first and the middle name, such as Sarah Beth or John Thomas.

A middle name is often used to satisfy the need for incorporating a family name that has been passed down from one generation to another. No matter what the significance of a middle name might be, however, it can still be difficult to find that perfect name for your baby.

Name Searching Tips

As you search for the perfect middle name for your baby, keep the following in mind:

  • You may love the name, but hate the spelling. If so, consider changing it to suit your needs.
  • You don' t have to limit your options to what is listed on the website. Name generators are there to help you with your choices. You may find another name somewhere else that you love.
  • Don't believe everything you read. Just because a name lists a particular meaning or even origin on a site doesn't necessarily mean it's true. Look for that name's meaning on several sources to verify the information.
  • Don't forget to look at the initials of your baby's name to avoid embarrassing acronyms.

Finally, choose a name that your little darling will be proud to call his own. He or she will have that name for the rest of his or her life!
