Baby Name Needed – Middle Name for Andrew

A reader named Jaime is expecting a baby boy this May:

We’re a Hispanic family that like a strong name like Andrew […] but we’re having trouble with a middle name. Andrew is long already so we want something short for a middle name.

The baby’s last name will be Cruz.

I’m not sure what style of name Jaime is looking for, but here are some short names (of various styles) that I think sound good between Andrew and Cruz:

Eli
Ezra
Ian
Jay
Joe
John/Juan
Jude
Kai
Kane
Kyle
Leo
Lou
Louis/Luis
Lucas
Lyle
Mel
Noah/Noé
Owen
Paul
Saul
Scott
Seth
Shane
Tate
Theo
Toby
Todd
Ty
Vito
Zeno

Do you have any other middle name suggestions for Jaime?
