Baby Name Needed – Middle Name for Henry

A reader named Rebecca needs help finding a middle name to go with Henry:

We are Jewish and had picked the name Greyson but my husband now thinks that is too “waspy” sounding. Whatever name we pick can’t start with a vowel. We love names that are old sounding — would love something like Simon but we can’t use that name.

Yup, many surname-names — especially those that are patronymic (e.g. Anderson), occupational (Tucker) or locational (Whitaker) — tend to rate pretty high on the WASPiness scale. :) Luckily, they’re also easy to avoid.

Here are some potential middles I came up with:

Benjamin
Charles
Clarence
David
Felix
Gideon
Graham
Jabez
Jasper
Jeremiah
Jonah
Jubal
Laban
Lemuel
Levi
Mattan
Morris
Nathan
Nathaniel
Philip
Samson
Samuel
Saul
Seth
Solomon
Tobiah
Walter

Do you guys like any of the above with Henry? What other suggestions would you offer Rebecca?
