We're expecting our second little boy in January. Our last name is two syllables and starts with D and ends with a short "a" sound. Our son is Magnus Joseph. Magnus was originally kind of a joke between my husband and me but ended up becoming his name... and we love it! It's a good strong Scandinavian boy name, and we'd like to give the second boy a strong name as well. So far we are mostly decided on Gunnar for the first name but cannot decide upon a middle name. A biblical/traditional/old fashioned middle name that sounds good with Gunnar, doesn't leave him with weird initials (e.g. G.O.D.), and has a nice rhythm. I like Martin/Martyn and Maxwell and Alexander (though Gunnar Alexander could be a little too much "er"). I like the sound of single syllable names such as James or Jones, but I'm not sure I like either of those enough to use them. My husband is thinking about using Joseph for this baby's middle name, but I'd like to come up with some other options to offer him. We just can't decide on a middle name!
Any middle name suggestions?
