How to Choose a Middle Name for Emmie

Choosing a middle name can be tricky, especially if took you a while to decide on a first name. For my second daughter, Josie, we really struggled to find a name to pair with it.

I went through hundreds of middle name lists and found some really good advice, that might help you to choose a name too!

Here are some ways to pick a middle name:

1. Family Members Names

This is actually how we chose Emmie Kay. My sister’s name is Kayla and I really wanted to pass her beautiful name on! 

The other name that was on the table was Emmie Joy, after my sweet grandmother Joyce.

Choosing a name that honors family members is a beautiful way to name your daughter. But, sometimes these names don’t fit.. so let’s look at a few other ways to pick a name.

2. The Name Meaning

I wanted to include the name meanings because sometimes this can help you to settle on a name. If meaning is important to you, this may weigh a little heavier in your decision process. 

3. Consider the Length

We liked a short and simple middle name. It just seemed to flow for us. I have seen parents pair Emmie with a longer middle name, which looks beautiful too!

4. Decide if you Want a Double-Barreled Name

We planned on calling our oldest daughter Emmie Kay. This is traditionally done in the south and called a double-barreled name. 

If you plan to call your daughter by her full name, take this into consideration. It really needs to flow!

5. Think about Sibling Names

If you already have children, you may want to think about names that flow well together. Maybe they start with the same letter or have the same syllables.

For our girls, we decided on 1 syllable first and middle names! This was kind of a coincidence, but we really like it!

6. How Does it Sound?

Try reading your favorite names out loud. You might be surprised by how they sound. Keep in mind that if you find it difficult to say, a stranger might too!

For my daughter Josie, we said about 100 name combinations out loud!! We loved the way Josie Quinn sounded, so we decided on that.

7. What Are the Initials?

If you don’t live in the south, monograms may not matter quite as much. But, you want to be sure that it doesn’t spell something inappropriate. 

My Thoughts..

Whether you decided on a middle name for Emmie by choosing a family name or loving the sound of a name, I hope this list gave you some inspiration. I’m excited for you to name your daughter Emmie, we think it’s beautiful 😉
