unique middle names for boys

Some people make a meaningful middle names boy list, others a list of cool middle names for boys. There is no right or wrong answer here! You can go with a passed down family name or something no one has heard before.

My recommendation is to have a little fun with the middle name. Pick something you truly love! You don’t have to worry about the middle name choice for your baby boy the same way you do for the first name, as it isn’t something they will really have to use if they don’t want to.

Think of a middle name as a way to make your child’s name sound stronger or more interesting. It’s like a bonus addition to their first name. Oh, and make sure you like the way it sounds when you say it sternly. If your little boy is anything like my little boys, you’ll probably be saying it quite often.


We are kicking off the list with some of the coolest middle names for your rad new little dude! I am absolutely obsessed with “Bodhi” which we have included here. It would pair so well with a classic first name, giving it a little more flavor. I haven’t hopped completely on the bandwagon of super unique names, but I do love the idea of unusual middle names and I think everything on the list below provides that.
