144 Unique Middle Names for Your Unique Baby Boy

You figured out the first name, but it's not over yet.

Middle names for boys sometimes languish in the shadows as parents strive for the perfect baby name. But whether it’s for a baby boy or a baby girl, the middle name offers both lots of space to be both wildly creative or to pay homage to history. When considering a baby boy’s middle name, some parents choose Mom’s maiden name or seek to appease family members who are hoping for a new namesake. Others prize uniqueness or simply aim for a boy’s middle name that sounds cool when said alongside the first name. This is especially useful when the need to scold arises (“Taylor Thomas Cox! You come over here this instant!”) or if you dream of your baby boy becoming a bestselling novelist.

At the end of the day, middle names sometimes do no more than occupy space on your kid’s birth certificate, so take some creative license and choose a cool middle name for your baby boy without worrying about it too much. Secretly want to name your son after your favorite Star Wars character but don’t want to saddle him with that for life? Use it for his middle name and keep schoolyard bullies at bay. There are endless challenges and vexing decisions you’ll face as a parent, so try and enjoy the process of finding your baby boy’s middle name as much as possible. These unique middle names for boys are a good place to start your search.
