Middle name suggestions?
Hello! My husband and I are expecting our first baby as early as next week and still can't decide on a middle name for our boy. His first name will be Orion. We would like a short, one to two syallable middle name. The only real restriction is that it can't end in "O" as our last name does.
We have a bit of a different taste in names, we aren't keen on common names and like ones that are a little more fresh and modern. Anyone have any suggestions for us? Thank you!

Orion _ _ surname-o
I wouldn't choose a middle ending in O as you mentioned or ending in n as Orion ( a beautiful name I should add) ends in n and it would disrupt the flow I.e.
Orion Collin Leo ( I just made up a middle name for you to show what I'm getting at) I would also avoid a name starting in O as Orion does and you'd get
Orion Oliver Leo... Lots of os and lis innitials would be OO :-/ if you want to go for it but I personally would have those as restrictions and don't have a middle name that ends in the letter the last name ends with either so they don't run together. And avoid anything with an o in it since Orion has 2 and avoid repeating the I sound Isaac would be out Ryan and Ivan and ryder... Also I wouldn't start it with R since -rion is such a big part of the name you'd get a very melodic sound that I imagine most families aren't looking for . Orion is a very solid name but the middle you choose can pull it in either a very solid ( wow they are so good at choosing incredible names, their son is so lucky!) directions or questionable ( what are they trying to do... Be creative?) directions... ie...
Orion Jared OJ might not be ideal initials
Orion Misha ( I pronounced ee so not a conflict)
Orion Vincent ( I is eh so not a conflict)
Orion Willet ( I is eh)
Interesting but yea you can pull
I off in a classy enough way ...
(anything made up of super out there takes the emphasis off the first) find where the line is for that and you'll be in great shape, I love the name!
