Hi Everyone ! I'm new to this website and would like some help on my name list if you don't mind ! (: I just recently took a TON of names off (and added quite a few new ones) but my list is still so tiny! I think it's because I'm super picky when it comes to names so I'm looking to expand my list. If you have any ideas it'd be greatly appreciated.

Here's what needs help on my boys list right now;

Conner - This has been my favorite name since I was about 11. I know that when & if I ever have a little boy, this will be his name. I don't care what my husband says. Haha. I've gone through so many middle names but now I don't like any that I had before. Any suggestions!?

& these need middle names
Garrick
Bryce
Jacob
Hunter
Zachary

Here's what needs help on my girls list right now;

I need to find middle names for;
Emma
Katelyn

I'm starting to like the name Avery but I really hate the spelling. Anyone know any alternate spellings of Avery?

And I like the names Grace and Faith a lot, wether they be used as first or middle doesn't matter but I'd like to use them somehow, I just don't know how!

Anyway, I appreciate any help ! Thank you (:

I've always loved Conner/Connor! Suggestions: Connor Alan, Connor James. I like these.

I've seen it spelt Averie. Avarie. Avaree. Avary.

I love Grace! Grace Victoria, Grace Amanda, Gracie Katherine. I like Grace with every sing name on my list!

Faith I've always had trouble finding a mn or fn for. I never come up with one I actually like.

Hmm. Conner James is nice. I've thought about it before but it's not my favorite.

Averie is my favorite from what you listed. I actually haven't seen any of those before!

I think I like Grace better as a middle name & Faith as a first name but Grace Katherine & Grace Victoria sound super pretty and elegant!

That's the problem I have with Faith! No middle names ever seem right to me.

Thanks for your help !

I still haven't decided between Connor Alan or Connor James.

I like Grace as either. I think I'd prefer it as a fn.
Grace Victoria was what my niece was almost named. Victoria after her mom's middle name. I added it to my list since!

Me either. Faith is so pretty. But, I 'm very picky about it!!

You're welcome. Glad to help.

Well between James & Alan. I'd go with Conner James. Conner Alan has a nice ring to it but I can't picture Alan on a little boy.

It's very pretty! I might add Grace Victoria to my list but I'm thinking I like Grace Katherine a little more.

Hmm. Guess We'll have to keep looking! There's gotta be a middle name for Faith somewhere out there!

There's a few suggestions for the boys :) I LOVE your boys list!!! Garrick and Jacob are the only ones not on my list already hehe! I've had Garrett off and on my list though, quite similar to Garrick. And Jacob used to be on my list a while back <3 And Connor, Hunter, and Zachary are all in my top five!!

I LOVE Emma as well! Gorgeous! And Katelyn is beautiful<333 I love all Kate names :) Avery is GORGEOUS! Grace is beautiful, I love the nick name Gracie. And Faith is sweet<3

Emma Madeleine

Emma Lark
Emma Natalie

Katelyn June
Katelyn Ruth

I love Avery, spelled this way. However, Averie is also a lovely spelling! <3

Grace and Faith are pretty interchangable with them both being one syllable and all... so here's some names that could work as the first/middle name for either!

Charlotte Grace // Faith
Eleanor Grace // Faith
Cecelia Grace // Faith
Serena Grace // Faith
Ivy Grace // Faith
Natalia Grace // Faith
Rory Grace // Faith
Matilda Grace // Faith
Aria Grace // Faith
Lilah Grace // Faith


To be honest, I had Faith on my list until I couldn't find a name that sounded perfect with it ;) so I may or may not be of much help on suggestions.. But I sure hope at least some of this is helpful!!

Just a warning...I'm going to suggest some pretty out-there names. Just do you don't get all super-popular suggestions. Hope you like something! ;)

Conner
This is such a handsome, classic name! What about Conner Brave, Conner Myles, or Conner Yancy?

Garrick
This name is very handsome, even though I have a personal negative association with it. What about Garrick Wiley, Garrick Charlie, or Garrick Leander?

Bryce
This is a very handsome name! What about Bryce Gordon, Bryce Gulliver, or Bryce Lemuel?

Jacob
I really like this name, such a classic. What about Jacob Hannibal, Jacob Frances, or Jacob Noel?

Hunter
This name isn't my favorite, but it's nice with your other names. What about Hunter Jamison, Hunter Wyatt, or Hunter Elroy?

Zachary
I love this name, it's on my list sometimes. What about Zachary Jethro, Zachary Kane, or Zachary Hermes?

Emma
I don't love Emma, it's too popular in my opinion, but it's nice. What about incorporating Faith somehow? Emma-Faith Rae, Emma Laura-Faith, Emma Faye (kind of a variant?).

Katelyn
I don't love Katelyn for personal reasons, but Kate would be absolutely adorable. What about a variant of Grace for the middle? Kate Gracelyn, Kate Graciela, Kate Gracyn.

Avery
I love Avery, but I like it on a little boy (I know, it's all in girl territory now!). Alternate spellings: Avary, Averie, Avarie. As for a middle name, I think Averie Winona would be absolutely beautiful!

Wow, Remy! Thats a LOT of suggestions! I really appreciate it !

Conner Nathaniel has been my favorite combo for the past few years, now I'm not too sure about it. It seems too long of a name and plus the "er" and the "el" in both names irks me a little. Lol. Idk why. I've thought of Connor Nathan, its growing on me, but the flow seems a little off.

These are my favorites of what you suggested:
Connor Ethan
Connor Isaiah
Connor Nathan
Connor Zachary

I think I really like Connor Zachary. I never thought of using Zachary because I was planning on using it as a first name so I never bothered to see how it fits as a middle name. Totally overlooked it!

& Then these are what I liked for the other names

Garrick Mitchell
Garrick Holden
Garrick Michael (This is what I'm using for a middle name right now. Not sure if I'm completly in love with it yet!)

Bryce Colin

Jacob Ryan (Begining to like this A LOT!)
Jacob Timothy

Hunter Chase
Hunter Seth

^ LOVE those two! I had NO ideas for middle names for Hunter before. I dont know which I like most though. :/ They both seem like a perfect fit.

Zachary Cole
Zachary Caleb

You were definitely a help there. I really like both Hunter Seth & Hunter Chase. Now I just have to decide which one I like more ! & Jacob Ryan is really growing on me. Right now I have Jacob Nicholas, but I might like Ryan a little more. Then I have to figure out if I want to use Zachary as a middle name for Conner or keep it as a first name. Decsions, decsions!

Thats so weird, how we have all those names in common! Proves, that they're awesome names!

Here's what I liked for the girl suggestions:
Right now I'm using Emma Rose but its SO common so I'm not sure I like it.

Emma Madeleine
Emma Shiloh (Shiloh is so unique! It goes great with Emma but I keep thinking of that movie with the dog, Shiloh. - _ -)
Emma Grace
Emma Victoria
Emma Faith (I've thought of this too. & I LOVE it. But like with Rose, its super common)
Emma Cadence

I Love:
Katelyn Elizabeth
Katelyn Sophia

My only problem is I used Elizabeth & Sophia as other middle names, so I dont want to use them again.
I obviously cant have a Katelyn Elizabeth & Kylie Elizabeth. Haha. I probably wouldn't even use both Katelyn & Kylie as a sibling set because they're too similar, but I still want all different middle names. So, idk what I'll do with Katelyn, yet!

-

Raven, defnitely dont mind some unique names! Mine are all SO common, which is what I like for some reason. Haha. But I'd definitely like to add a variety of names to my list. (:

Here's what I like from your suggestions:
Conner Myles
Jacob Noel - Very handsome! It has such a nice ring to it. I like (:
Hunter Jamison
Hunter Wyatt - My cousin just had her baby - Ethan Wyatt. I have to admit I didnt like Wyatt at first, but its defnitely growing on me for a middle name.
Zachary Kane

Wyatt was my favorite suggestion. I dont know if I like Hunter Wyatt, but Zachary Wyatt sounds handsome. I might add that to the list.

I really would love to use Faith with Emma somehow but Emma Faith is SO common which is why I'm not using it.
Emma Faye is adorable! I've never heard of Faye before.

Avery Winona isnt my style but I do like the spellings of Averie & Avarie.


Thank you both so much for the help!

No problem! Welcome to BNG! (:
I thought the same thing about Jacob Noel. I suggested the name because there's a kid in my math class named Noel, and I thought it was pretty cool on a boy.

You dont want to add ANY names to that list.. unless your planning on having twenty Children of course. ;)
Trust me. Otherwise you will end up with a list as long as mine... and its much harder to shorten it.

My favourite of your boys names are Conner, Bryce, Jacob and Zachary.
As for your girls, Emma, Grace & Faith.

I've got Grace & Faith on my list as first names. Most people see them as filler middle names. But I like to use them in the first name slot. ;)

I have Faith Audrey & Grace Imogen right now.
But here's a few ideas [using what I had in the past]:

Faith ♥

Faith Emilia
Faith Caroline
Faith Eloise
Faith Victoire
Faith Genevieve
Faith Lorraine
Faith Anneliese
Faith Diana
Faith Arabelle
Faith Emmeline
Faith Lucille
Faith Selene
Faith Annmarie
Faith Bridget
Faith Helena
Faith Eliza
Faith Mathilda
Faith Lorelei
Faith Scarlett
Faith Madeleine
Faith Harper
Faith Amelie
Faith Margaret
Faith NoŽlle
Faith Julianne
Faith Gwendolen
Faith Laurent
Faith Isadora
Faith Gabrielle
Faith Adrienne
Faith Laurel
Faith Georgiana


Grace ♥

Grace Harriet
Grace Mathilde
Grace Rhiannon
Grace Ophelia
Grace Olive
Grace Theresa
Grace Evelyn
Grace Bianca
Grace Addison
Grace Isobel
Grace Charlotte
Grace Emily
Grace Diane
Grace Miriam
Grace Adelaide
Grace Veronica
Grace Phoebe
Grace Lydia
Grace Annika
Grace Marianne
Grace Vivian
Grace Elodie
Grace Liesel
Grace Penelope
Grace Daphne
Grace Helena
Grace Kathryn
Grace Juliette

As for Emma, I think pairing it with something less "traditional" works nicely, since it's a very common name.

I've had Emma Lark, Emma Gwyneth, Emma Lucille, Emma Florence [I now have Anna Florence as one of my top choices], Emma Prudence, Emma Penelope, Emma Celeste, Emma Harper, Emma Juliet, Emma Victoire, Emma Liesel, Emma Therese, Emma Lizbeth, Emma Gail....

Raven - Thanks. I dont know why I havent ever really though of Noel before, right now I have Jacob Nicholas. I think I like the N or something with Jacob cause I do like both Jacob Noel & Jacob Nicholas. Oh & btw I'm really starting to like your suggestion of Hunter Jamison! I thought it was all right at first but now the more I say it, the more I'm begining to love it.

Ash - Haha. I know what you mean! I used to have a kinda long one and it took me FOREVER to shorten it because I loved them all so much. .... I kinda wish I could have 20 kids, just to name them all! Ha. But yeah, I still feel like I have such a short list, and even though I wont use many of them, I still like to have plenty of suggestions. (:

Paperheart - See, I love Grace & Faith for either first or middle. I hate when people say its a filler middle name, I mean yes, it kinda is. Lol. But, for me I'm actually using them because I like how they sound in the middle name slot. I'm not just filling in because I don't have any other choices. But ohhh welll! Ha. I'll stop rambling now, heres what I like from your suggestions;

I really really really really love Faith Audrey! I was deciding between Audrey & Aubrey for the longest time as a middle name for Hannah, Aubrey won but I've been trying to find a space for Audrey somewhere. Think I just found it! Idk why I hadnt thought of it before, mind if I steal it? (:

I also like;

Faith Anneliese
Faith Bridget
Faith Madeleine
Faith Adrienne

Grace Rhiannon
Grace Evelyn
Grace Isobel
Grace Kathryn
Grace Juliette

Emma Juliet

Thanks so much for the help!

Yes, you may steal Faith Audrey ;)
I'm still in between trying to figure out which I prefer [Grace or Faith]. I love Grace because it's just so elegant, but I love how Faith sounds as a first name. And it's definitely a virtue name that would work well for me. You gotta have Faith right?!

Yay!(: I love the sound of Faith Audrey. It's so elegant and beautiful. (Same as Grace) Definitely hard to pick between the two.
