90 Unique Middle Names for Your Unique Baby Boy

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

For something that remains largely inconsequential, choosing middle names for boys can stir up a lot of stress. When deciding on a middle name, some parents use the bookended name to appease family members hoping for a new namesake, or to incorporate Mom’s maiden name. Some simply want a boy middle name that sounds alliterative, or at least interesting 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!”). Whether you’re feeling drawn to the classics or looking for a unique middle name for your baby boy, it can be tough to sort through the possibilities. There are millions of cute middle names for boys to choose from, but only one that’s right for your baby.

Of all the decisions that come with impending parenthood, this one is relatively low stakes, so try and enjoy the process of finding a unique middle name for your boy. Finding a first name that sounds decent with your child’s last name was hard enough (and that’s assuming you’ve decided what last name your child will have). Middle names don’t do much but occupy space on your kid’s birth certificate, so feel free to take some creative license and choose a unique middle name for your boy. Want to name your kid, like, Ciabatta or Brioche without subjecting them to a lifetime of torment? Use it for their middle name and keep schoolyard bullies at bay. There are endless challenges and vexing decisions to come in your parenthood journey, so make choosing your baby boy’s middle name as fun as possible. These 86 unique middle names for boys should get you started.
