Esme middle names


Choosing the perfect middle name for Esme may not be so easy. 

There are so many factors to consider to ensure you give your daughter a name she will love and be proud of.

The flow of the middle name with the first and last names is very important. Some people find pairing a short first name like Esme with a longer, 2 or more syllabic name like Vivienne gives a better flow.

But you know what? If you love a short middle name like Esme Joy, that’s fine as well. There are no rules! 

Also, say the names out loud. Do you like the sound of it, and not just how good it looks on paper?

You may also consider having a meaningful middle name rather than a filler name. 

For instance, you can pick the middle name “Desiree”, if it took you a while to get pregnant with your daughter. “Desiree” means “longed for, wished, much desired,”. This might be a suitable middle name for your Esme. 

One HUGE factor you should consider is how the initials spell out

Be wary of funny-looking initials or acronyms.

This study revealed that people with positive name initials live longer. So that may be something to consider.

Finally, don’t be in a rush. The perfect middle name for your baby will come to you. It might take a while but it will in the end

I know, I know, you might have searched far and wide, scoured blogs and books and still not found the name that “clicks”. 

So, you may be wondering if it would be all that necessary to give your baby girl a middle name.

I hear you. 

Let me give you 3 major reasons why it’s a good idea to give Esme a middle name.

#1. The Power of the FULL NAME

You will be familiar with the full name power play. You know, the one your parents undoubtedly used on you when you were being naughty as a child.

When they called you with your full names including your middle name!

You remember, right?

It’s not just a parent hack, you know. Recent research proves that calling your child by their full names makes your child develop better behaviour.

Amazing, right!

#2. A way to HONOUR FAMILY members

Giving your baby a middle name can be a sweet way to honour family members, especially extended family that passed recently or ones you are particularly fond of.

#3. You’re giving your child OPTIONS

We all want our kids to love the names we give them. Realistically, this won’t always be the case. 

And that’s okay.

By giving your child a middle name, you are giving them options for the future.

In any case, your child has the option of using their middle name as their first name. 

Just like the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle. Her first name is Rachel but she goes by her middle name, Meghan.

There you have it. There are so many options to choose from, I hope I’ve been able to help you pick a good middle name for Esme.
