When it comes to picking a name for your baby, the focus is often on the first name, and rightly so — it’s what they’re (probably) going to be called for the rest of their lives. But between family names, celebrity names, and names we just like the sound of, it can also be downright impossible to narrow down your picks to only one. As it turns out, Europeans in the Middle Ages thought the same thing. Torn between choosing a family name and a saint’s name for their children, they opted to give their kids middle names. But you don’t have to be religious to continue this tradition. First and middle names for boys and girls are the norm now, so there’s no need to limit yourself to a single name. Plus, when your little one grows up and inevitably engages in questionable behavior, nothing has quite the same ring to it as using their first, middle, and last name to get their attention.

If you need a little help picking first and middle names that sound good together, don’t worry — we’re here to help. Keep reading for a massive roundup of first and middle names to consider when you’re racking your brain over what to call your kid.
