Why You Need a Middle Name

True, you’re not require to choose a middle name for Elizabeth….but unless your last name is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious it’s a pretty good idea. Here’s just a few reasons Elizabeth will thank you later on in life for choosing her beautiful middle name now:

  • More Namesakes: Have a great aunt that you love dearly but you just can’t stomach the idea of naming your daughter “Bertha?” That’s the beauty of middle names. They allow you to carry on the family tradition without sacrificing your preferences. 
  • Easily Identifiable: Elizabeth is a timeless name that never goes out of style. Unfortunately, this also means that your daughter might share her name with a few of her classmates, coworkers, and friends. The solution? A middle name! Many teachers use the first initial of a middle name (or the entire name) to differentiate between students. Also, a middle name will help her out later when she’s trying to identify herself to others. 
  • Middle Names Can Be Nicknames: Not too fond of Lizzy or Beth? You can totally give her a  nickname based on her middle name. Or, you can combine her first name with her middle name to create something new and unique. We did this with our first daughter and love it!

Things to Consider for a Middle Name


Once you’ve narrowed your list down to your three faves, I would take a quick glance at potential initials. She may not appreciate initials that spell out EEK or EVIL. 


Have you ever heard a name that “just sounds right?” Believe it or not, there’s an unofficial set of rules that help names flow well. When you’re choosing middle names for Elizabeth, bear these guidelines in mind. 

  • Avoiding using two similar-sounding consonants. For example, avoid Kate Kerri.
  • Do use differing syllable counts. E.g. Rose Marie.
  • Avoid two names that sound too similar. For example, Marie Kerri.
  • Consider the meaning of the overall name. For example, Katherine Isabel means pure and promised to God.
  • Choose a name that has the same “feel”. For instance, Elizabeth is a biblical name. You can choose a middle name that follows this theme.
  • If you can’t decide, why not choose two?
