I'd quite like some input on the name Reid. I've been thinking about it recently and I'm really starting to love it. Do you think it can stand alone on its own? I can't think of anything it could be a nickname for, and truth be told, I don't think I'd want it to simply be a nickname.

I'm also a little stuck with regards to middle names.. the only ones I can think of which I like and seem to flow are Reid Samuel and Reid Finlay. I'm a little hesitant with Finlay though as I absolutely love Finn (for personal reasons) and wouldn't want it to be in the MN spot.

I should also mention I'm from the UK where Finn is slowly gaining popularity, but I haven't heard of any Reid's at all.

Thanks in advance for your input! :)

Re: Reid?
I really like Reid as well.

I would use a 3+ syllable mn with Reid since it's so short.

(I don't know what is popular in England but here are a few suggestions.)

Reid Alexander
Reid Anthony
Reid Emerson
Reid Harrison
Reid Jamison
Reid Maverick
Reid Maximilian
Reid Timothy

(And, I prefer Reid Samuel to Reid Finlay.)

Re: Reid?
I really like Reid. Short, masculine and easy to pronounce/spell. Unfortunately, DH isn't feeling it!! Ughh...

Re: Reid?
I really like Reid and although I think it sounds great with both middle names, I prefer Reid Samuel. I 100% think it can and should stand alone.

Re: Reid?
Thanks for the feedback, ladies.

How about Reid Kristopher?

Re: Reid?
I absolutly love Reid! I think its a very strong name, and stands alone well.

I also think it needs a 3 syllable mn. And I absolutly love Finley, and wouldnt want to see it stuck in the mn position, either!

I love Reid. Reid Kristopher is nice, I love Reid Alexander though.

Re: Reid?
I really like the name Reid. I agree that Reid is a name that needs a long middle name. I particularly like Reid Alexander.

I like it!! Very cute name

Re: Reid?
it's not really my style - I know a lot of people with the surname Reid, so find it hard to think of it as a first name...... The only n/n I could think off would be Ree?

IAmMomMomIAm August 3rd, 2009 06:55 AM

Re: Reid?
I definitely think it stands alone (plus I just don't like nicknames in general).

Reid Christopher sounds nice, but I only like it with a C. Reid Alexander is good too. I think 2 or 3 syllables works fine, but would avoid other monosyllabic names. Here are a few others I thought of:

Reid Julius
Reid Julian
Reid Lucius
Reid Sebastian
Reid Malachi
Reid Elias
Reid Aaron
Reid Wesley
Reid Solomon
Reid Frederick
Reid Matthias
Reid Leonidas
Reid Sullivan
Reid Christian (prefer to Christopher)
