How to Choose a Middle Name for Josie

Deciding on a middle name came be tricky especially if you struggled to come up with a first name. We had a hard time agreeing on our second daughter’s name, nothing felt right.

After spending hours putting together a ton of combinations, we fell in love with Josie Quinn. There were a few reasons why, but I’ll get to those in a bit.

Here are some ways to choose a middle name:

1. Family Members Names

At one point. we wrote down every family members first and middle name. This can be really meaningful especially if you want to honor the person.

2. The Name Meaning

For the names above, I included their meaning. If the meaning of the name is important to you than you will want to focus on that!

3. Consider the Length

We wanted a middle name that was short and sweet. I’ve seen some parents have paired Josie with a longer middle name which is beautiful too.

4. Decide if you Want a Double-Barreled Name

We call our oldest daughter by her full name Emmie Kay! I love the ring it has. If you want to call your daughter by her full name, take this into consideration.

5. Think about Sibling Names

Whether you have a child already or plan on having more in the future, you can pick names that are similar or have the same syllables.

This wasn’t all that important to us but we ended up picking 1 syllable first and middle name combos for our daughters.

6. How Does it Sound?

I mentioned this earlier, but you want to say them out loud. If you struggle to say it, chances are a stranger will too.

This actually helped us decide on Josie Quinn. We loved the way it sounded!

7. What’s the Initials?

The last thing you may want to think about is your child’s initials. The last thing you want is for it to spell something inappropriate.
