There are many middle names for Noah to choose from that are classic, modern, or unique. Here are the best second name ideas for boys named Noah.

There is no such thing as a perfect name but if you look through enough ideas you will find one that you and your spouse can love. Use this name picking advice and the best suggestions I’ve found to get started in the right direction while naming your baby!

The meaning and history behind Noah

Noah has been a very popular name for boys in recent years and manages to be short, cute, and strong at the same time.

In fact, Noah reached the #2 spot on the list of popular boy names so far in 2019.

The name Noah is extremely well known throughout history and most famously appears in the Biblical story of Noah and the ark. It originally comes from the Hebrew version of the name, Noach, which means a rest or repose. Once the name spread to more of the Western world, it quickly became popular in not only the United States but also other countries such as Australia, Belgium, Canada, Ireland, and the UK. It enjoys top 10 status in all of those countries!

Help finding the right middle name for Noah

After spending all of your energy on the first name the middle name can feel like a chore.

Don’t let that take away from finding the perfect complement to the first name that you worked so hard to decide on! Heck, you could even decide to pick up two middle names or even leave that space blank! In the US, you are really only legally required to have a first and last name on the birth certificate so it really is your choice. Still, the overwhelming majority of the country sticks with the traditional three name setup.

Don’t be afraid to have a little more fun with the middle name, by the way, because you can get away with a lot more with this one than you can with a first name. In most cases, middle names are rarely used and serve as a way to honor family or make an otherwise normal name more fun.

Where to find inspiration for Noah’s middle name

Since it’s not as common to use the middle name you can choose to make it whatever you want without much fear of judgment. Still, it can be overwhelming when you start to think about it so I have four ideas for where you could find inspiration:

  • Family or traditional names – The name of family members is a great choice for finding the perfect middle name that many parents use. Comb through the list of grandparents, uncles, and old maiden names long enough and you’ll probably find something neat. Using these names helps preserve their memory and gives honor to loved ones at the same time.
  • Your second choice for the first name – If you were absolutely torn between a few different first names before you made the final decision then you could still let one of them live on through the middle name! Luckily, most good first names also make great middle names!
  • Two can be better than one – Like I said before you don’t have to limit yourself to just one middle name. If you find a combination that flows well together or you just don’t want to be able to honor both granddads you can get away with it. Plus bonus points for sounding like an English prince!
  • Memories or favorite places – Place names are pretty trendy for first names but they work well for middle names as well. Consider honeymoon destinations, favorite retreats, or just a place that you have a great memory of with your spouse.

What to watch out for when you choose the middle name for Noah

It can be super fun thinking of middle names but there are still a few things that you need to watch out for that could cause problems with the name as a whole. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Potential nicknames – While you shouldn’t just toss a name for fear of an unfortunate nickname it is definitely something to think about. Put yourself into the mind of a mean child and see what you can come up with if you were trying to make fun of your child’s name.
  • Initial spellings – There will be many occasions where your child’s initials will be written down, printed on a form, or otherwise put onto display for others. With a name like Noah, it might be unfortunate if the initials spell ‘N.A.W’ or ‘N.A.G’ Just something to think about!
  • Monogram spellings – Monograms won’t come up nearly as much with boys since you usually find them on stickers or clothes but it is still something you might want to write down just in case.
  • The overall flow of the name – Once you decide on your favorite full name I highly recommend that you write it down and say it out loud a few times as well. This will help determine how the whole name flows. Hard stops or repetitive lettering can make a full name sound strange. One trick you can use is to scream the name out like your child is in trouble or read it slowly as if they are graduating from college to see how it sounds. If you can’t take it seriously then you might want to reconsider.

Last Thoughts

I had fun going through these second names for Noah and I’m not even picking out my own son’s name!

Please remember to take it easy during the naming selection process because this should be a fun activity for you and your spouse to enjoy. Start looking at names early but then let them rattle around in your brain for a while and see what settles. Sometimes the name you fall in love with first is not the one you decide to keep!

Whatever name you decide on be sure to enjoy your new baby and have fun becoming a parent!
