My husband and I are settled on the first name Fox, but are still working out the middle name. We want it to be a Catholic / saint name for the middle name, since we’re going with an untraditional first name. Our last name is 3 syllables, so personally, I think a 2 syllable middle name works best. What do you think?

What letter does your last name begin with?

I’ve always loved the name Xavier. I also think “Fox Francis” sounds a little gimmicky. But that’s totally my opinion! You do what you love!

Fox Xavier kind of runs together with the X sound. That would bother me so I chose Fox Francis. I like using the name of the Pope for the middle because he’s such a wonderful name-sake to tell your son about someday! 🙂

I lean towards “Fox Francis” more, not a fan of Xavier, but thats just me!

LLEU: I kind of like Fox Christopher.

CocoLoco523: Bad associations with the name Chris, unfortunately.
Our last name starts with U. We both like Pope Francis, which is part of our thinking.

St. Francis is my favorite saint but Fox Xavier has a ring to it that I like so I voted for that one.

Fox makes me think of X-Files. Or Megan Fox. I also can see kids teasing, “foxy”.
It’s too younique for me.
If you do use it, I would pair it with a classic for the middle though.
William, Edward, Christopher, James.

LLEU: I am totally digging the name Fox…

I don’t like it with Xavier…I don’t like that the X’s run together and, sorry, but I don’t like that his initials will be FXU.
I DO kind of like Xavier Fox though. Or Fox Alexander

I think Fox Francis is a little too alliterative. I don’t love that his first & last name initials will be “FU,” and throwing in the middle names doesn’t help a lot: “FFU” or “FXU.”
I love the name Francis, and Fox is cool, but I would rethink it. What about using Fox as a middle name? Xavier Fox U.? It still has the “FU” thing, but maybe I’m the only one who notices that!

playdohpants: I agree! I really like both names you suggested…I like the sound of Xavier Fox better than the other way around. He could always go by his middle name if OP wanted to call him Fox!
