Our favorite middle names for Amelia are Grace (from Latin, meaning ‘God’s grace’), and Jasmine, a fragrant flowering plant that symbolizes elegance and finesse. Both names enhance Amelia as they’re short, sweet, and feminine.

But these are only our picks — now you decide on one that looks and sounds right for you.

The significance of a middle name 

Although there are no hard or fast rules while picking one (in fact, they’re not legally necessary), over 80% of parents now give their kids a middle name.

If a child’s first and last names are fairly ‘ordinary’, a middle name is a great way to spice it up and personalize it, especially if it represents a person or place symbolic to you, the parents.

Having a distinctive middle name helps your child stand out, especially if others around her share the same first name.

A middle name can sometimes serve as a back up (or ‘safety net’) if a child grows to dislike their first name, in which case they’ll resort to using it as their preferred name.

Honoring a family member – keeping heritage intact

An exceptional way of honoring a loved one, whether it be a family member or someone very close to you, is by passing on their name (or even a variation of it) to your child as a middle name. 

Honoring a departed grandparent, aunt, or uncle helps your child remain in touch with his or her cultural background. You could opt for a middle name that pays tribute to your heritage while at the same time keeping your daughter connected to the family’s roots.

Maiden names can be beautiful. A way of honoring one side of the family that’s growing in popularity is to give mom’s maiden name to your daughter as a middle name. This can also strengthen the bond between both parents.

Have you thought about honoring the memory of a dear loved one without even using their name? We know someone whose favorite grandmother had a passion for poppies, had cultivated a little gardenful of the delicate little plants, and even made sure she had some in her wedding bouquet! Needless to say, our friend’s daughter now has Poppy as her middle name.

Nicknames and initials

Nicknames are usually short and informal, not taken too seriously, and generally used as a term of endearment. 

More importantly, nicknames usually arise among small groups of children, quickly becoming symbolic of how a child is viewed within that circle. Bonds of intimacy and trust can soon develop through the use of nicknames, leading to friendships that often extend into adulthood. 

As mentioned above, nicknames can be extremely useful at school, especially if the teacher has three or four little Williams or Penelopes to deal with simultaneously.

These days initials seem to follow us everywhere, and not just on towels and briefcases. So when choosing that middle name, take care that the initials don’t spell out anything embarrassing. 

For example, it won’t take long for the school bully to notice the initials of young Patrick Eamon Edwards (PEE) or Christine Olivia Walters (COW) displayed proudly on their gym bags!

Full-name powerplay alert!

Apart from writing out your different name choices, try calling them out verbally to hear how they actually resonate with first and last names. 

Remember how it felt when we heard mom or dad thunderously call us by our full names whenever our conduct was less than angelic? TERENCE ZACHARY GOLDSTEIN – STOP DRENCHING YOUR BABY BROTHER WITH THAT GARDEN HOSE AT ONCE. The full-name address never failed to stop us in our tracks.
