Hi everyone,

I was directed to this board in hopes of finding some help!!! I've finally found a name that DH and I both like for a boy (mission impossible in itself! ), but now I'm stumped trying to come up with a middle name that flows well with River. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

The first thing that comes to mind is PHOENIX.

I think River should have another "nature" name, or at least something unusual. Do you have any thoughts on that? It seems to me that something like River Michael just sounds weird. He needs another uncommon name to keep it sounding nice IMO.

Here are some from place names:

River Finlay
River Hudson
River Eton
River Clifton
River Boyne
River Dayton
River Trenton

From nature:

River Glen
River North
River Vale
River Halcyon

Musical/poetic/artistic:

River Bard
River Canon
River Echo
River Fado
River Galliard
River Legato
River Octave
River Ukiah (haiku spelled backwards)
River Luthier

Virtues:

River Concord
River Justice
River Patriot
River Truth

Hope something in there appeals to you ... I think River Finlay and River Galliard are kind of nice. Depending on the kind of name you like River Ukiah might work too; it does flow well.

That's funny because DH's first thought for a middle name was Phoenix too! And I'm in total agreement, it has to be something uncommon that flows well to sound the best.

I really like Jett too but unfortunately DH doesn't.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions!

Lauren, Ukiah is a place in California.
River Phoenix.

I really like River and I agree that it needs a creative middle name.

Really? I've never been to California and I've never heard of Ukiah, CA.

I just thought of it as a "unique" name because it's HAIKU backwards ... like Nevaeh. It works for place name and for poetic then.

Hey, hey Ms. Inventorer of names.
I wonder if they realize it's haiku backwards?
I really like haiku, it should like totally be a middle name.

I do wonder whether they know. I'm sure someone's noticed it before but was that the reason they called it that?

Now I wonder.
