So these are the kids I have already:
Mary Caitlyn
Nathan Alexander
Audrey Catherine
Sarah Mackenzie
Kasey Elizabeth

Now we have Riley and for the life of me I cannot ocme up with a middle name. My last name is Bunn so it does not make it easy...LOL. My Dad just passed away just shy of a year ago and I thought about using his name (Theodore), but it just does not fit. HELP!!!!!

I think Riley Theodore is nice, especially given the link to your father. But, if you don't like the flow of that, how about Riley James or Riley Christopher?

I really like Riley Theodore. What was your dad's middle name, would you like it better?

DDCC to say that really, a middle name doesn't have to "fit." Barely anyone will know it, much less use it. Whereas honoring your father by using his name would be truly meaningful.

This one of the reasons I'm not keen on Riley.

However I love Theodore. Also love the pet forms, Theo and Teddy/Ted.

Yup, the only Rileys I know are girls.
Love, love, love Theodore – I know a sweet little guy nicknamed Theo.

DDCC

How about Riley Doré? Then it still honors your father, but also gives homage to a really cool artist.

Would your maiden name work as a middle name?

I love homemade: cute skirts, apricot jam, and family!
