    Unusual middle name for Michael

    Stylistically my favorite boy names could be defined as classic/timeless. My favorite boy names combinations are James Alaric and Henry Elijah*. As you can see the first names are very very popular in the US so I typically like to put less popular names in the middle name spot. Michael is a new current love of mine. I'm quite picky with names so I'm having a hard time finding more unusual legitimate names that I like .


    Some names I've thought of, but don't quite fit: Malcolm, Perseus, Truman, Gideon, Conrad, Alasdair, Desmond, Phineas, Leonidas, Jolyon

    Maybe someone can convince me that the names above do fit. I do love them, but I'm not sure about them with Michael

    * Elijah is quite popular, but in my 21 years I have not met one. Maybe it's regionally, but it's not popular where I live. I also don't think it has the same feel as James, Henry and MIchael. It fits stylistically more with Alaric


    Suggestions please!

    ^Did I overshoot unusual? I really like them...


    Michael Solomon is a family combo that happens repeatedly in my family tree, but isn't too conventional if Michael Elijah isn't.

    I love Antonia, but just can't get on board with Anthony for some odd reason. It's also ranked 15 last year so too popular for me. I love all the August names, but I don't like them with Michael. I like Cyrus, but Michael Cyrus is too close to Miley Cyrus.

    I love Salvatore, but as a surname only. It has a really cool sound to it. I like Victor, but my sister in law is Victoria.

    Leopold was on my list. I forgot about it. I'm not sure if Michael Leopold has the same feeling as James Alaric and Henry Elijah.

    Adding Leopold and August on the long list for now.

    I used to have Peregrine on my long list of obscure names until I realized I like it more for how it looked and no the pronunciation.

    How is Caradoc pronounced?

    Zebulon will always make me think of Zenon. I loved those movies.

    I really like Nicodemus, but I'm not sure how usable it is. If I didn't already have two Vampire Diaries names on my list I would use Niklaus. I love it so much more than Nicholas.

    I'm not fond of X names and my younger brother is Stephon so I would use a name with the same sound.


    No you didn't! Even if I wouldn't use them I love finding out about unusual names.
