86 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 hidden name to appease family members hoping for a new namesake, or to incorporate mom’s maiden name. Some simply want a middle name for boys that sounds alliterative or at least interesting when said alongside the first name. This is especially useful when the need to scold arises (“Tyler John! You come over here this instant!”). Others skip the middle name altogether. If you’re not taking these routes, it can be hard to narrow down the millions of baby names. 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).

On the bright side, since the middle name won’t do much but occupy space on your kid’s birth certificate, you can get a little more creative. Want to name your kid Rainbow without subjecting them to a lifetime of torment? Make it their middle name to keep schoolyard bullies at bay. Whether you want to go classic or unique, one syllable or four, you can do something original with the middle name. Here are 86 unique middle names for boys to consider.
