My favorite middle names are Zoey Parker and Zoey Charlotte, as they both have a classic, unique ring to them. 

Parker is an extremely popular English name meaning ‘park keeper’, ‘gardener’, or ‘forester’. 

Charlotte (could even evolve into the nickname, Lotty) has its origins in old France, is the feminine form of Charles, and means ‘petite’ and ‘feminine’. It’s also the 8th most popular middle name of 2022. 

But just remember that these are my faves – you go with what sounds best to you…

How to pick a middle name

Having decided on that all-important first name, you’re now looking for a middle name that flows like a crystal clear stream, doesn’t upset or confuse any relatives (especially the older ones!), won’t embarrass your little one as she grows older, and, preferably, won’t be made fun of by  smarty-pant school bullies in the playground.

Choosing a middle name for your baby is a landmark decision that will, hopefully, enhance your child’s unique personality and be cherished by her for years to come.

Some things to consider when picking a middle name:

  • Choose something that reflects your child’s unique personality and will be cherished for the years to come.
  • Make sure it flows well with the first name and doesn’t sound uneven or out of place.
  • Consider what you want your child’s middle name to represent. Will it be something classical and timeless – or more modern and trendy?
  • What about their initials? Don’t pick a name beginning with Z, for instance, as this will obviously clash with ZOEY, (though, having said that, there could be exceptions!)
  • Consult with your partner or spouse for their opinion on what might work as an appropriate middle name for Zoey.

Here are some other important things you’ll want to keep in mind as you zero in on the perfect middle name for your Zoey.

A middle name can be used to preserve important family names and cultural heritage.

In some countries, middle names are used as a way of continuing the family name or to preserve cultural relationships.

Whether you choose a middle name to honor a favorite uncle or aunt or, perhaps, to provide some historic family significance, it can be a fun way for your child to remain connected with their heritage and culture.

A middle name can become a nickname.

As with their first and last names, your child’s middle name will usually remain with them for a lifetime. Some middle names become the child’s nickname, so choose one that both you and your child love.

It reflects your child’s personality.

A middle name can reflect your child’s unique personality. If they love nature, their middle name could reflect that – eg., Blossom, Petal, Daisy, Poppy, Rosie, etc. If they love colors, you might go for Jade, Hazel, Blue, Goldie, Pinky or Magnolia. The options are endless! These are just some ideas of our own, so just relax and let your own fertile imagination run its course!

The full name powerplay – a sure-fire winner!

Addressing a child by their full, given name (middle name included!) is a fail-safe way of grabbing their attention and reminding them who’s boss! Most kids soon learn that when their parents address them (somewhat ominously!) by their full name, that they’re in REAL trouble!!

This tactic has been used since time immemorial and works like magic! It’s the classic ‘go to’ device employed by every parent when all else fails, kids are pushing boundaries to the limit, and mom or dad’s patience has finally disappeared out the window!
