    First name to go with family middle name?

    I've been trying to come up with some first name ideas to go with a family middle name, Esmonde. I think it's a really strong middle name, and want to keep up the tradition! So far in the family we've had David Esmonde's and Patrick Esmonde, as well as an Esmonde as a first name.

    My current favorite boy names are:

    Wesley
    Sebastian
    Calvin
    Declan
    Finn
    Dylan
    Adrian
    Cormac
    Soren
    Wyeth

    but I'm not sure any of them quite fit with Esmonde. So if anyone has any ideas of names that might be similar to others that I like, and are more in the style of Esmonde, let me know! Thanks!

    I like Finn best, because it is a bit more common, since the middle name is not. Plus, on its own, I think Finn is a wonderful name.

    If you are looking for some more common names that flow well with the unusual middle name, I think these sound good:
    Holden Esmonde
    Wyatt Esmonde
    Gage Esmonde
    Asher Esmonde
    Lucas Esmonde
    Logan Esmonde
    Colin Esmonde
    Leo Esmonde
    Samuel Esmonde
    Gavin Esmonde
    Aaron Esmonde

    Re: First name to go with family middle name?

    My fav from your list are
    Wesley Esmonde- wesley is familiar, traditional, yet still not common. The double Es in the names may or may not be a big deal to you since they have a lil different sound.
    Calvin Esmonde- Calvin and Wesley would make great names for brothers, they have same style and both familar and not common at same time, however it does scream protestant history, but not sure how many would pick up on that. Calvin Esmonde has great flow
    Finn Esmonde- a more modern choice than Calvin and Wesley, Finn Esmonde is very distinguished
    Cormac Esmonde- not sure how much I like Cormac with Esmonde, but Cormac is just a great name so I had to add it. It does have nice rhythem.

    Wesley, Calvin, Finn and Cormac! Can't go wrong no matter what you choose, you have a great list!
