We have no ideas for boys names at all as we don't agree on anything.

I like Hudson, Riley, Flynn but DH hates all of these.

DH likes Jack, Carter or Benjamin but I don't like these.

The only name we both think is nice (although I don't love it) is Owen.

I can't think of one single name I like that could go as a middle name. DH doesn't care about middlenames at all.

DS is Cooper. Any suggestions for middle names for Owen or any other name you can suggest to go with Cooper?

Good luck!

I would tend to go either 1 or 3+ syllables on the middle:

Owen Hale/Heath
Owen Rhett
Owen Zane
Owen Miles (is Miles 1 or 2 syllables? I can never decide if 2 or 1 the way that James is 1.)
Owen Mordecai/Malachi
Owen Dominic
Owen Alastair
Owen Zachary/Zacharias
Owen Gabriel

Owen Patrick is what first sprung to mind. It might have been because if DD was a DS, we would have used that name!

Owen Reid
Owen Tom
Owen Bram
Owen Kurt

(I like one syllable after the 2 syllable first name - but depends on how many sylls in your surname as to whether it works nicely!)

Huxley

The mountain range where I grew up consisted of Mountains: Owen, Jukes, Sedgwick, Darwin, Lyell and Huxley.

Owen Huxley sounds exactly right to my ears!

As indeed does Owen Lyell!  (or you could spell it Lyle)

Mintie's Owen Patrick is my fave combo, love it!

And as an aside, I knew a guy called Owen Cooper. I like the two names together, for brothers or as first/surname!

Thanks everyone. I like Owen Patrick and Owen Thomas but now I'm starting to doubt Owen goes with our surname.

DH appears to have gone completely off the name.

Sigh. At least we have a girl's name sorted! But I'm 99% sure this baby is a boy.
