Baby Name Needed – Middle Name for Schyler

A reader named Carol writes:

We are having a second boy and are trying to choose a name. Our first child is a boy also and his name is Sebastian Reece. My husband really likes the names Schyler (Skyler) but I can’t seem to find a middle name that fits.

Carol’s last name is a 2-syllable P-name, so I’m assuming the baby will have the same last name. If that’s the case, I think a 1- or 3-syllable middle would be a good idea.

Here are some of the names I came up with:

Bryce
Cole
Dax
Dane
Finn
Flynn
Hugh
Jack
James
Jude
Max
Tate
Trent
Vaughn
Zane
Alastair
Atticus
Benedict
Benjamin
Cameron
Damian
Dominic
Donovan
Elliott
Gabriel
Julian
Matthias
Nathaniel
Nicholas
Zachary

Do you like any of the above as a middle for Schyler/Skyler? What other names would you suggest to Carol?

  1. I like Schyler Cole and Schyler Dominic.

    Other ideas:

    Abraham
    Chase
    Christopher
    Ezekiel
    Ford
    Francis
    Glen
    Harrison
    Heath
    Keith
    Quinn
    Rune

  2. Not a specific name suggestion, but as I’ve seen Schuyler (and its variants) used for both girls and boys, I’d recommend going with a definitely male middle name, and avoid names that could be confused with girl names (Cameron, Julian, Francis, Quinn, etc.).

  3. Nancy we went with Reid. We decided to give our boys the same initials so that is how we came up with this name. Thanks for everyone’s comments and helpful suggestions.
