Name That Kid!

We have a short list of names going, and I was wondering what you all thought of them. Any good ideas for middle names for these? As you can see, we really like traditional-type names. :)

  • Charles
  • Christopher
  • Graham
  • Patrick
  • Peter
  • Edward
  • Edmund
  • Nathaniel

There may be more, but that's all I can think of right now. What a crazy thing to name a person!

I love Christopher! I was thinking about that one for myself, but we had a girl plus we have a good friend Christopher so that would be weird.

Uh...hello. Did you forget the baby's name is Cwistopher Wyatt? Duh! :)
I really don't know. As soon as I start to put together a name for you I think, Wait. What about the name...so and so. Yes you should name your child so and so. :) Do you not want to use the middle name Michael? There are so many good names. Too hard. I'll have to get back to you.

Mike says Christopher. I like Christopher, Peter, or Edward. Zach votes "not Patrick". :)

Hmm... middle names. If you go with one of your two-syllable names, then your middle name needs one or three syllables, not two. Preferably starting with a vowel or a soft consonant sound. Overthinking it much?

Yes, it is quite the responsibility to name a person. I like Graham.

Screw Zach--I've always liked the name Patrick. My other votes would go to: Christopher, Graham (that one was in our top 15ish when we named Malcolm) or Nathaniel.

I'm a big fan of honoring someone with middle names--grandparents, ancestors, aunts/uncles, etc. All three of my kids have one of their grandparent's names.

Well anyway. I'm probably not extemely helpful with traditional names, though. One of these years I'll convince my husband that the name "Phoenix" is a viable option. I'm bound and determined to have one of my kids have an "x" in their name.

Names names names.....hm...
You haven't said anything about using Michael as a middle name but I do like the sound of Christopher Michael. I like Graham too but I can't think of a good middle name. Hm...another comment is in the horizon.

I told Jason's mom about the names you like. She says she likes Graham Levi. I think overall I'd vote for Christopher Michael.
