So me and hubby are trying to find a different name for our little boy that is due in January. His name was originally Alasdair Liam, but for some reason, I’m not a huge fan of Alasdair (Hubby wanted his name to be Alasdair), but I like the name Onyx, but we can’t seem to find a middle name that would go good with it. What middle names would you guys use with Onyx???
Why not use both names? Onyx Alisdair or the other way around?
James. Michael. Zayne. Caspian. Charles. Samuel. Zion.
I have no idea how to say any of those names but maybe lee?
You could not have one?!
I rlly like Onyx Orion like another commenter said!
Alexander, Lee, Matthew
Honestly I feel like Onyx should be the middle name
Onyx Liam sounds so cute
Onyx Alasdair Liam. It sounds quite nice and both names are included.
Onyx Alsdair sounds good then you get both
I always feel like I need to hear it with the last name, too, though, to decide.
Maybe go with a meaningful to you or your family, middle name? Almost anything can go with Onyx
Steelix or brock
Onyx (husband’s middle name). I also like Onyx James
Onyx Adair so it’s similar
Onyx James, onyx Alexander, onyx Johnathan
Both compromise with names then both happy
Onyx Fortis…means strong in Latin
Do you know onyx is a black gemstone
Onyx Jasper or Onyx Rain
Well I’m partial to this middle name since it’s my son’s and very different! MOON
Yikes niether sorry. Remember you’re naming a person. A baby who will become an adult.
Use the first name for his middle name onyx alasdair is cute
Onyx Asher, Onyx Reid, Onyx Alexander, Onyx Calum
Anthony, Alexander. I think a middle name starting with a vowel would have the best flow.
Naming children or Pokémon?
My nephews name is Onyxander(Onyx for short)
Onyx Alasdair or Onyx Liam
Things to consider: Onyx may be a difficult name for many to spell, and definately to pronounce. It could garner not-so-nice nicknames as well. Have you thought about the traditional spelling/use of Alastair instead of Alasdair? And Liam is an amazing name that is still “different” and somewhat rare nowadays. Maybe use that one as a first name or keep as the middle name? Hard to misspell or mispronounce that one…and it is a strong name! Something to consider as well…watch the first letters of the 1st, middle and last name to ensure they are not something inappropriate (poor kid has to go to school for many years, lol), and watch the syllables of each name. The first (should) sound phonetically compatible with the last name, as well as the entire name as a whole. Listen to the choices over and over because you guys will be calling him that for a LONG time. Remember no child wants a name they have to wait until 18 to change. Try to give names that someone would want, versus what the parents want only (just my two cents and experience). Have fun with it. Look up names in baby books. Write down the name on paper…does it look ridiculous or strong and gives a good impression? Does it honor someone we want to honor? I know many people don’t believe any of that matters…but it does. Just ask the kids/adults who have gone to court to change their names or who make sure they are called by their middle names or nicknames instead of what their parents labeled them.
Dont worry bout not having a normal name for him name him whatever you feel right
You can always go with no middle name.
How about Onyx Dair? (part of the first name your husband likes)
Our sons middle name is Onyx
Onyx is a BEAUTIFUL name by the way.
I was going to name my baby Onyx, but went for Equinox instead!
Dean, Stone, Blue. Something w/one syllable sounds best.
Onyx Reid,Onyx Xavier,Onyx Lane,Onyx Reign
I like Onyx Alexander
How about Onyx Knightly? I think it goes super cute together.
Onyx James , Onyx Korbyn
I like the name Maximus Onyx (I know I put the middle name as Onyx)
My grandson’s name is onyx
What a cool name!!! I like blue
Hendrickson or Hendi for short
You have to find something that sounds good when they are in trouble. Mine are Evan Michael and Gabriel Steven.
How is onyx pronounced? Just curious
I’m with hubby love.!!!
Tbh my family method (I didnt use it) when you cant think of a middle name pick a color or flower it usually doesnt sound bad
Onyx kaad or kaid lol idk
Liam goes well with Onyx. Onyx Liam
Just flip the names around
I like “wierd” names so I’d go with Onyx Hayze
Are you trying to get him picked on?
Onyx. Really? Won’t get very far in life with that name. Prime Minister Onyx . I’m all for original quirky names but surely there’s a line.
We’ve done unique names as middle names for our sons.
We have Isaac Thor and our second will be Oscar (but middle name to be announced at birth)
We thought it best to have conventional first names for later in life (jobs etc) and our last name is very conventional too.
But still wanted to do something unique for the middle name
You can always call your child onyx, even if it’s his middle name.
Just another perspective
Flynn maybe? And can you adults stop bullying an unborn child? Onyx is a cool ass name and you don’t need a basic name to be successful in life.
ignore them i love the name onyx
Maybe onyx as a middle name?
Why not give him a “normal” first name and use onyx aas his middle. That way you can call him onyx but when he’s an adult he can get a job
My grandson is Onyx Clay
I’m sorry all I think of is the Pokémon. Not trying to be a dick but for real
I saw Onyx Jace and it jumped out at me.
My boys are August and Rory, and their middle names are William and David. When my ex and I named them we didn’t really care if the first names and middle matched. I mean obviously you want it to sound nice but it doesn’t have to completely go together and be a theme. Lol if anything, cause someone mentioned the possibility of the kid being bullied for his name, give him a normal middle name and if he wants to go by that when he gets older he can
Love the name onyx my sons name is oryn Knox.
My mind went to:
I will say that my now teenage son wants to change his name to “Max”. He loves that name. I imagine if he has a son, he’ll be a Max.
(his name is John Avery because my grandpa’s middle name was Avery)
No offense but are you black? That’s what onyx means.
How bout instead or trying to find a name that “sounds good” go with one that has sentimental values to you and your husband?
I thought Onyx Liam was cute
Onyx James goes well
As someone with years of experience on the subject, having an “unique” name sucks and can sometimes be embarrassing as well.
I found my daughter middle name just on Google. Took me a few days and different websites but there were many options
What happened to the traditional names?
Part of my process was practicing yelling their full name (like if they were in trouble) and if you get stuck on it don’t use it. It needs to just flow, if you get stuck yelling their name it makes it funny not scary
Onyx has actually become popular lately I know a few kids with that name. I only know two of their middle names one is Micheal and the other is Kade.
Use parts of yours and your husband name combined.
Tate, Thomas, Levi, Ellis
Why not just call the poor thing Liam and call it a day… Onyx really is he a rapper with a face tattoo and a bad attitude?? Alasd whatever that is…why? Just choose a normal name…
Doesnt matter what u name ur kid there will always be people that like it and people that dont
Onyx sage sounds pretty. I really like onyx Liam too.
Onyx is usually a girl’s name… all jewels are.
Not even gonna lie… Onyx was my cousin’s dog for over 13 years and a boy in my daughter’s daycare class is named Onyx… First thought was… who would name their kid a dog’s name
Onyx James, Onyx Michael, Onyx Fredrick
If youre literally on here to just criticise a childs name youre garbage
My friend named her son Onyx Grey. It is actually becoming a common name for boys
Do the middle names mean nothing ? We choose family names
I Lovee Onyx! Onyx Jayde?
Onyx Zephyr, onyx o’neal, onyx pierce, onyz theodore, onyz james,
