Middle Name for Wilder — The Bump

Middle Name for Wilder

We’re leaning towards naming our baby boy Wilder. Now to figure out a middle name!

Here are some that are in the running:


Wilder Rhys

Wilder Graham

Wilder Lachlan

Wilder Leo

Wilder Bennett


Thoughts? Open to other MN ideas too!

Re: Middle Name for Wilder

  • How long is your LN? Might help with suggestions. 
  • I lean toward Wilder Graham and WIlder Bennett. I like all of them, but the back to back R's in Wilder Rhys trip me up and it sounds like "Wildereese" and similar problem with the L names Lachlan and Leo, although not as bad.

  • Wilder Graham, it helps calm and ground Wilder. I would avoid Leo. Wild Lion is probably not a name you want your child to emulate.

  • Our last name is quite long @bellebaby221! It’s O’Shannessy. 
  • @Bringmemylongswordho Excellent point about Leo being the MN. Leo Wilder was a top pick for us but our last name starts with an O so we nixed it. Trying to still sneak Leo in there somehow I guess!
  • @meggyme Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    I would go with something like Wilder Graham then since you have a LN with several syllables!

    @bellebaby221 I love Quinn as a middle name! Pretty sure I won’t be able to convince my husband though ;) Thanks for the other ideas too!
  • Wilder Graham is my favorite from your list.

    Agreed that Wilder Graham works best.  But I prefer Leo as a first if you are still considering that 
  • Another vote for Wilder Graham!
  • I prefer Wilder as a MN if that’s an option.
