The relevance of a middle name

In today’s world there is no longer a paltry handful of ‘allowable’ names, but a multiple choice of names found in popular culture, literature, art, and history from around the world.

With this freedom of choice comes great responsibility: How to pick a name that’s both dignified and exclusive? Will it be difficult to pronounce (or hard to spell)?  

If a child’s first and last names are relatively unexciting, a well chosen middle name can spice it up and personalize it more, especially if it reflects a favorite person or place in your life.

A distinctive middle name sets your child apart from others with the same name and can even serve as a fall back or ‘safety net’ if your child decides she doesn’t like her first name as she gets older, opting to use it as her preferred name.

Honoring family members; conserving heritage 

A simple way of saying ‘I love you’ to a dear family member, be it an uncle, aunt, grandparent, or ancestor, is to offer their name to your child as a middle name. 

Or did you know that you needn’t even use their actual name in order to honor them? We knew someone parent who remembered her dearly departed grandma, an avid gardener with a passion for roses (she even grew over a dozen varieties), by giving her daughter the middle name Rose.

Looking through your ancestry records could uncover a long lost grandparent (or great grandparent) whose memory you could revive in the blink of an eye and whose name, though seeming rather antiquated, may sound quite trendy as a middle name for your child today. 

Conserving your family’s cultural roots by giving your child a middle name that reflects, perhaps, a mountain, river, or region where you were born can enable them to feel more connected to their long-established and time-honored family history.

Keeping things closer to home, some moms offer their child their maiden name as a middle name, bringing couples closer together while at the same time strengthening the family tree.

Nicknames and initials

Nicknames, usually short and informal, aren’t taken too seriously, and are basically used as a term of endearment. They can also take on a life of their own, while sometimes being impossible to predict.

Nicknames are generally created among small groups of kids and quickly evolve into how a child is seen within that group. Deep links of trust and intimacy often develop through the use of nicknames, leading to friendships that sometimes extend long beyond childhood.

Most teachers will agree that nicknames can prove extremely useful in a classroom that boasts several Mathews (Matty, Huey, Matz), or Stephanie’s (Steffi, Annie, Tiffany), all fighting for attention at the same time!

Deciding on a nickname calls for a little imagination. If it sounds good and is short, doesn’t confuse too many people, and isn’t something the school bully can ridicule, then it’ll probably work.

Full name power play (or a parents’ secret weapon!)

CHARLOTTE MADELINE GRANT – I’VE TOLD YOU NOT TO CUT YOUR SISTER’S HAIR!

Remember when mom or dad wanted to stop us in our tracks and get our immediate attention? Nothing sounded more scary than hearing them use the ‘full name power play’ tactic. Hearing our first, middle, and last names called together loudly is enough to petrify even the most rebellious kid!

With this in mind, if still undecided on your child’s middle name, we suggest you call them out slowly, listening to which ones gel together with first and last names. You’ll be surprised how quickly you arrive at the ideal combination, and far more effective than just writing them down and looking at them on paper.

Meaning of the name Lucy

The classic, endearing name Lucy is the English form of the Roman Lucia, which itself derives from the Latin, meaning ‘light’. It’s also found in the Bible, where it means ‘bringer of light’. Apparently both names Lucy and Lucia were once given to girls born at dawn.

Lucy currently sits at #47 in the list of most desirable girls’ names in the U.S., having grown in popularity ever since the madcap 50’s sitcom, I Love Lucy, starring Lucille Ball.

When The Beatles’ came up with the iconic Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds in the 60’s, just as the lovable, but bossy Lucy was grabbing all the kudos from Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts Gang, the name’s popularity soared into the top five most popular names.

Wrapping up

So what do you think? We hope our list sparks your imagination and gives you some ideas in your quest to find the perfect middle name for your daughter, Lucy.
