Theodore is lovely, as is Teo. I love TH names. I considered Thaddeus (love Thad or Tad for short) for one of my boys and am considering Thorin (nn Thor) for this one.

Let us know what you settle on! (secretly hoping for Theodore Cavan because it so obviously speaks to you!)

THeodore is a nice name. It's my FIL's name, and his father's name, and his father's name. my husband, though, did not get to be the IV. His name is Theodore Christian.

not that that helps. but, a c-name is nice after theodore.

and teo and teddy are my two fav nick names for it. though i like teo as is too.

You could also just do what we did and honor a loved one with the middle name

I love Teo! I'm so glad you are feeling good about a name!

If you have narrowed down middle names, you could do like we did and just flip a coin .

Theo reads to me thee-oh. I think you would have to spell it Teo to get the other pronunciation, and even then I think it will probably be mispronounced a lot.

I meant the whole thing together was nice.

If you want "tay-oh" I think you'd have to spell it Teo. Theo is just going to be pronounced "thee-oh."

I feel like such a stalker but I've been checking this thread regularly to see what you decided. I was hoping for Theodore James. It flows really well. I love James as a middle name. Teo is also very original without being weird and suits a little baby and an adult.

His whole name sounds great (really, good choice!), but I'm so happy you chose James. Such a great name!
