Tips For Choosing A Good Middle Name That Goes With Lyla

1. Choose a meaningful middle name.

For a rainbow baby, you might want her middle name to reflect hope or answers to prayers.

2. The flow of names is important.

How well do the first, middle and last names flow together? Try to avoid overly rhyming names. These might be cute when your child is a baby but not when your child is grown.

3. Consider your baby’s full initials.

This study shows that positive name initials lead to a longer life. So, you may consider giving your baby a positive acronym.

Remember, you might get monogrammed baby gifts.

4. Say the names out loud.

You might like how the name looks on paper, only to discover you don’t quite like the sound of it.

5. Consider your family naming traditions if you have any

Some families have traditions where any girl child is given the middle name, “Ivy” or “Rose” for instance.

However, don’t be too scared to let go of traditions that don’t work for you.

Why You Need A Middle Name For Lyla

Middle names encourage better behaviour in kids

It’s a common parenting strategy to call children by their middle and full names when scolding them for bad behaviour.

But do you know this has been proven by research?

According to this study, reminders of one’s middle name leads to an increase in good behaviour. This is a great reason to give your child a middle name.

It can be a way to honour family members

Giving a middle name can be a way to honour extended family members like grandparents.

If you really would like to, you can give your baby, your grandma’s name or your partner’s nan’s name.

It’s a subtle way to honour that person and keep their memory alive.

An alternative name

We all hope and want our children to love the names we give them.

Though, this isn’t always the case. Whatever happens, your child has the option to use their middle names as their given names.

Work-related reasons

Other times, your child may end up working in a field, where their first and last names are already in use.

They may choose to distinguish themselves by using their middle names as their first names instead.

This is a common trend with actors and celebrities. Ever heard of Laura Jeane Reese Witherspoon, James Paul McCartney?


Picking a middle name can be tough. Hopefully, this article has helped you decide on a middle name for Lyla.
