The importance of picking a good middle name for your daughter

Your daughter’s middle name is one that she will carry with her throughout her entire life.

Of course, middle names aren’t 100%, legally necessary, but they give our names a little bit of extra flavor. And truth be told, they come in handy every now and then.

Ultimately, your daughter’s name makes her unique and gives others a sense of who she is!

Here are 3 reasons you should think long and hard about your daughter’s middle name before you decide.

A middle name lets you preserve even more family or other important names

Some families take a more traditional route and base their decision upon a relative’s name.

For example, you might choose to name your daughter Amelia Sue after your late Aunt Susan.

Others may wish to make middle names a family heirloom.

If family origins date back to the 1500s and you may not want to lose that authenticity!

Their middle name can, and might, become their nickname

It is common for a middle name to overpower the first name. Sometimes, the child may simply prefer her middle name.

Other times, it may be easier to pronounce or spell. Did you know that Reese Witherspoon’s actual name is Laura Jeanne? This is totally plausible for your daughter!

It is also possible for the first and middle names to combine and become one name. Have you met a Sarah Lee or an Anna May?

Some prefer to use their middle name with their first because they flow so well together.

Use caution when determining a middle name, however. Kids will be kids, which means your daughter may be teased or mocked if they have an unusual middle name.

The last thing you want is for your daughter to be ashamed or embarrassed, so keep this in mind when deciding.

Regardless, a middle name holds great potential. Therefore, choosing your daughter’s middle name holds just as much importance as her first.

The full name power play

Want to know one of the most important tools in your disciplinary toolbox as a parent.

Yep, you guessed it:


Nothing strikes concern into the heart of children who’ve misbehaved quite like this lethal combination.

Choose a middle name that rolls off the tongue for maximum impact.
