    when I (finally) get pregnant I know that if I have a boy I will be naming him Andrew. It's the name of me older brother who was born sleeping. OH and I just can't figure out middle names for baby boy....

    For some reason I keep thinking the name Zachary Andrew but I'm not sure if I like it's reverser; Andrew Zachary.

    Any one have any middle names for Andrew?

    I actually really like Andrew Zachary, I think its quite unusual.

    But as RubyRainbows said above, Andrew James sounds great together.

    That's really admirable, wanting to name after his brother but would he not consider it as the middle name?? I do like the name and its what my younger cousin is called. Might be easier calling after someone for the middle though

    I like Andrew John, or Andrew James but depends on your surname.

    I agree with earlier poster, I think AJ has a nice ring to it as a nickname when he is older.

    Personally, if Andrew is named after someone else, I would use it as a middle name. I think it allows the child to have their own name and identity, but you still honour that person .. Just my preference :flower:

    Andrew Zachary or Zachary Andrew are both nice!

    I think these names work either way around ..

    Andrew Oliver
    Andrew Elliott
    Andrew Joseph
    Andrew Owen
    Andrew Jacob
    Andrew Edward
    Andrew Benjamin
    Andrew Oscar

    the thing is, it would be his own identity. No one talks about Andrew at all. I guess there isn't much to talk about if you know what I mean. I don't think anyone really thinks about it much and it would mean so much to my mom. When he died my grandmother threw away the only picture she had of him because she thought it was "gross" and then after that it was as if he never existed (this is all stuff my mom had told me). I also happen to really like the name and can't think of any other boy names I like. Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

    It's actually my brother, not OHs and because he isn't living it won't make calling him confusing. As in there won't be two Andrews. I thought of Andrew as a middle name but I really have no idea what other boy name I would use. I can't seem to fall in love with any boy name.
