  • What does he want his name to be? What fun being able to pick your name! I would pick a better middle name than Marie for me. So common.

    But here are a few suggestions:

    Reese
    Beau or Bo
    Donovan
    Walker
    Chase

    They all sound good with the first and last name.

  • At 13, why not ask him if he has any ideas? Maybe there was a member of his original family, like a grandfather or uncle he may want to honor and take their name as a middle name. If not, good luck!

  • Mark popped into my mind but I agree with asking him what he likes and see if he has any suggestions.

  • I would definitely let him chose, see if he has any suggestions, add your own and let him pick! Maybe he has something already in mind, from a birth family member or maybe he would like a name from his new family, perhaps the same middle name as his new dad or other male family member/role model or thier first name as his new middle name to help him feel more connected to his new family?

  • My twin girls were 10 when we adopted them and both wanted to change their middle names. I let them pick and they did a great job with it and were very pleased with themselves for picking the perfect name. Autumn Rose and Amber Elizabeth:) They have even earned nicknames due to their new middle names. Rosie girl and Queen Elizabeth respectively ha-ha. I vote for letting your son pick or at least give him several choices if you're not comfortable with letting him pick on his own. Picking a name is a big job and I did let my girls know I would have veto power. Congrats on your new son!

  • Maybe he could take your husbands, his adoptive fathers name as his middle name.

  • I think he's old enough to have a say about his name.

    Just wondering if you compromise his identity and safety any by putting his birth and adoptive name out here on the web?
