Our favorites are Abigail and Charlotte. We think Abigail, a name with classic appeal, blends naturally together with Aurora like a flowing stream! 

Abigail is hugely popular in Ireland, means ‘cause of joy’ in Hebrew, and is described in the Bible as ‘a beautiful and intelligent woman’. 

Charlotte, a middle name that’s regal, traditional, and cute, is of French origin, meaning ‘petite’ or ‘feminine’, and is the female equivalent of Charles. Fun nicknames for Charlotte are Lottie and Charley!

But these are just our personal faves; If you don’t find your perfect middle name here, see it as a starting point to spark your own imagination. And don’t worry if you’re having a tough time choosing from these great names. Remember, the possibilities are endless!

Surprisingly effective tips for picking a middle name that fits

There really isn’t a right or wrong way to pick a middle name. Just let your imagination off the hook and run its course!

If you find yourself drawing a blank, then try out these tips, questions, and checks. They’ll soon have you unstuck.

  • Maybe you’d like to honor the memory of a dearly loved family member (either departed or present), or someone whose cherished name you’d like to remember. Perhaps a dear old friend, ancestor or favorite author, historical figure or movie star.
  • How about one of your chosen godparents?
  • Sometimes, mom’s maiden name is chosen as a middle name as this will honor both families and preserve the family tree.
  • Play around with different names before deciding. Will the middle one flow smoothly with the first and last? Do they clash? Try repeating them out loud. How do they sound together?
  • Consider the length of the middle name; if the first name is long, pick a shorter middle one – or vice versa.
  • Does their middle name make you (and everyone else) smile?
  • Will it grow naturally with your child?

When you’re done, your child’s middle name will hopefully look and sound great and feel just right. 

A middle name can become a nickname

One of the attractions of choosing a middle name (or nickname) can be found in the ways you can shorten it – Maggie or Mags for Margaret – Joey or JoJo for Josephine, for example. 

A middle name/nickname should flow, shouldn’t confuse or upset friends and relatives, embarrass your little one, or, most of all, be a name that the pesky playground bully can make fun of…

The full-name power play

Choosing a middle name that sounds sensible when combined with their first and last can make a real difference when hollering at your cheeky rascal!

Who can forget getting into trouble as a kid, our parents addressing us ominously by our full names (middle ones included)? This could work as a great disciplinary tactic for you, too, as it never fails to stop them in their tracks!

Meaning of the name Aurora

The name Aurora is a consistently popular one, remaining in the top 50 names list since 2015.

It is a mystical, classic name meaning “dawn” in Latin, and is also the name of the Roman goddess of sunrise.

Aurora also refers to the wonderful, natural dancing light display in the Earth’s sky called the aurora borealis, famously visible in high-latitude regions like the North and South Poles.

Wrapping up

Hopefully, you’ve found the ‘perfect’ middle name on our list. If not, you shouldn’t worry too much.

These are just some suggestions we hope will trigger your imagination and get you started.

Even if none of them leap off the page to become your number one choice, we hope it’ll be a jump off point, inspiring you to do some research of your own.

Most of the names and ideas on our list come from actual parents of real Auroras mixed together with a few of our very own favorites
