We finally have a boys name picked out, one that everyone will hate and think its awful, but the only name we both like.

However, we're having trouble finding a middle name.

I think something one syllable will be best with this particular name and our surname.

I can't think of much except James, Paul, Reece. It can't be anything like Finn or
Quinn as there's an 'in' sound in the name already.

Any suggestions would be great! original.gif
