Best middle names for Jack

Choosing your child’s first name is a HUGE, time-consuming, and agonizing decision.

It sticks with them for the rest of their lives, so of course, you want it to be good!

But what happens to many parents is that they spend so much time on the first name that they totally forget about the middle name until, well, crunch time.

So I’ve been putting a series together all about how to pick a middle name that sounds good with any first name, to save frantic parents from spending hours on Google!

Scroll down the page a bit to see my list of the best middle names for a boy named Jack.

I’ve compiled these from all over the web — baby name databases, parent discussion forums, you name it. Then I whittled them down to the ones I personally think sound the best.

But this is just my opinion, and I hope it helps!


The importance of picking a good middle name for your son

Do you legally have to give your son a middle name?

Well, no.

In the United States, at least, there’s no law that says anyone has to have a middle name. But pretty much everyone has at least one, and why not?

Good middle names sound great, and they come with a couple of other cool advantages as well.

Here are 3 big reasons you should think and research carefully about a good middle name that goes well with Jack.

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

Is Jack named after dad, or maybe grandpa?

That’s awesome!

But you might find some other important men in your life a little grumpy that THEY weren’t the ones chosen.

With a middle name, you have an opportunity to honor your favorite uncle or childhood best friend with a nod to their legacy.

Their middle name can, and might, become their nickname

It’s pretty common for friends at school, and eventually work, to eventually take to calling someone by their middle name as a nickname

In fact, some people prefer this if they have a particularly awesome middle name (or if they hate their first name!)

A good middle name gives kids options later in life if they want to exert some control over their identity.

The full name power play

“JACK EVERETT SMITH, GET YOUR BUTT DOWN HERE RIGHT NOW!”

WIthout the middle name, that looming threat just doesn’t carry the same oomph.

You’ll want a first, middle, and last name combo that rolls well off the tongue in these situations where you need to lay the hammer down on your kid or toddler.

Trust me.
