Some fun and fanciful middle names in birth announcements from United Kingdom.
Amelia Primrose is so pretty! I quite like Amelie Lotus and Henry Discretion as well. I’m fond of the Puritan virtue name type names, like Discretion.
Why all the Tyger-with-a-”Y”s?
I like Henry Discretion, Iris Tiger (prefer this spelling), Maximilian Atlas Verity (Verity on a boy, nice), Oscar Fort and Wilkie Mountain.
That’s a good question. Maybe they thought it was girlier?
I had a girl named Xander Verity – I love that Verity is now a unisex middle.
I love these quirky middles – clearly Tiger in the middle is getting to be a bit of a fad.
Henry Discretion is hilarious (to me Discretion sounds like a brand of incontinence pads more than a virtue name. Yeah I said I spend waaay too much with the elderly!
Loving Amelie Lotus, Jack Rocket, Lois Berry, Maisie Blossom, Phoebe Bluebell and Matilda Bliss.

I find it interesting to see Tyger used as middle names on girls. I have it in my family tree twice from the 1700s, both on boys. It was obviously a cool norwegian name back in the day
