We are 38weeks pregnant with our first baby and super excited for it to make it’s appearance any day now! We are team green and settled on first names for the baby without too much difficulty. Now, we are struggling to pick a middle name that we like. Any suggestions would be much appreciated 🙂
For a girl (first name): Madalyn (or Madelyn)
For a boy (first name): Maxwell
Our last name starts with “A” and is 3 syllables. Thank you in advance!

I LOVE Maxwell.
My only problem with Madalyn is too many people will F it up and it’ll get ANNOYING.
She’ll get called Madel-LINE so many times you’ll want to hurt somebody, lol.

I like Jane or James.
I think due to the 2 or 3 syllable first names and the 3 syllable last name, any middle name would work best as something short and sharp with only one syllable.
Just my opinion though. What names have you been thinking?

Since Madalyn is three syllables as is your last name, a short one syllable middle name would flow best…
Ruth, Rose, Grace and Kate (even though it’s a diminutive) are just a few.
Both my children has family names as their middle names… look to your families’ trees for inspiration!

I like the idea of a one-syllable middle name, since both first names and your last name have three.
Grace, Rose, Jane, Joy, Rae, Hope, Anne
John, James, Paul, Seth
And fwiw, I prefer “Madelyn” instead of “Madalyn”

Madelyn Rae? It’s a bit different but i’ve always thought it complimented well with longer first and last names.
