So, you’re having a baby; congratulations!

It’s time to experience a whole new and exciting way of life. It’s also time to figure out a lot of things, like what to name your baby. 

People assume a lot of things about others based on name alone. In fact, a name even determines a lot about what someone thinks of himself. In other words, a name is a big deal!

So it’s no wonder that people readily scour the pages of Google, searching for the perfect first names for their children.

However, if you focus all of your efforts on finding a great first name, the middle name can ultimately end up on the back burner. 

That’s why I’ve been putting together my How To Pick A Middle Name series. So with a quick glance, you can find the perfect middle name for your son!

Without any further ado, here are the best middle names for a boy named Cole.

I’ve compiled these from baby name databases, parent discussion forums, and other sources then whittled them down to the ones I personally think sound the best.
