Often, parents are faced with the difficult decision of naming their child. Do they want to name them after a family member? What about giving them a unique name that no one else has? Or do they go for something more traditional like John or Mary?
This is especially hard if you’re not sure what your last name will be. But there is another option- middle names! A middle name can stand on its own as an identity, or it can serve as a reminder of someone’s heritage. And don’t worry- it doesn’t have to be their first and last name! It simply goes in between their first and last names.
Some middle names might sound strange, but they can work well for certain people. If you’re looking for middle names for Isaiah, look no further! Here’s a list of middle names many parents have chosen to call their child:
