    FtM Middle name

    I have chosen my first name (Liam), but I've been going back and forth on a couple middle names.
    One I've been using for a while now is Eric, but I'm also considering maybe using Jordan.

    I like the meaning of Eric more than Jordan, but one of my favourite musicians is Eric, so I don't know if that'll be too weird to use considering he's one of my favourite artists. However, my given middle name also starts with a 'J', so I'm kind of torn to use Jordan just to keep the same initial.

    I love the sound of Liam Eric myself!

    Perhaps a mashup of them both; Jericho. It means “City of the moon”, not sure if that’s up your alley meaning wise, but it sounds similar to Eric and has the J initial! And Liam Jericho is quite handsome too! Or maybe even Jared, for a similar sound to Eric and the J initial. Jared means “He descends”.

    I hope this helps!
    A J

    Love the name Liam! Agree with greyblue though, if you prefer Eric, use it!

    What about Jordan Eric? I know I said I had my first name chosen, but all of a sudden I'm seriously considering using Jordan as a first name.

    I like that combo too! So I am probably no help in narrowing it down...

    I agree that Liam Jordan has a better flow but if you prefer Eric, that's the name you should use. Eric is a common enough name that it wouldn't be weird of you to use it even if it is the name of your favorite musician.
    Liam Eric is a perfectly handsome name, so if you love it and it feels like YOU, then you should definitely use it.

    If you decide to go with Jordan as the first name, beware that unlike Liam or Eric it is also fairly common as a female name. Depending on your goals that can be a good or bad thing - if you're looking to present in a more non-binary matter then unisex names are great, but if you're looking to "assimilate" as a male then having a gender-specific name may help.

    I'm also considering the year I was born, and how common Jordan and Liam were then. Jordan and Eric were in the top 30 for boys, whereas Liam was in the 300s. I'd also like a more common name from my generation, and I already pass 95% of the time so I'm not worried about people assuming I'm "female".
