Help me choose a middle name for Clark
My husband and I just found out we are having a baby BOY! yay! We have already decided that his first name will be Clark which is my family name. I am having a hard time coming up with a middle name for him though. We are pretty open to everything right now!
My favorites so far...
Do you prefer any of these names? Any other names you want to throw out?

I think you're having trouble because the strong 'k' ending and single syllable give Clark such a finality, it sounds better as a middle or surname. I do like it as a first name...it's just hard to find a name to follow! What's your surname like? Maybe something that just provides a link/continuity.

Andrew and Oliver sound great with Clark! I love the name : ) Here are some more middles:
Athanasius (this may be a bit extreme, but I think it's the awesomest name in the world)
Names you should probably rule out because of the obvious namesake:
Twain (I threw this in to be thorough)Jude Marius-Raphael Benedict-Charles Dominic-William Christian-Damian Joachim
Genevieve Reine-Caterina Lourdes-Madeleine Neve

I love Clark. I like Clark Hudson and Clark Owen, but I feel like Clark needs a middle name that's at least three syllables. Hmm...
Clark Evander (instead of Evan?)
Clark Gabriel (this was a great suggestion)
As another poster mentioned, Clark has a very "final" feel to it so you need a longer middle name to balance it out. Otherwise the name feels too abrupt or choppy.Emily, 18, Southeastern US.

I think Clark sounds better with mn's beginning with a consonant. Middle names that begin with a vowel like Alexander sound like one long one (Clarkalexander).Since Clark is a short and abrupt one-syllable fn, I think something softer in the middle spot would be fine.
