I tend to do better with girl names but I'm gonna give it a shot ;)
Kason or Kayden John, Alexander John, Timothy John, Bryson or Brayden, Austin, Anthony,
Jeffrey John, Justice John(I have a JJ complex-our son will be here soon & he is going to be a JJ) lol

It used to be a traditon to use the maiden name of the mother if the name went together well. Like Magnum PI on the tv show with Tom Selleck. I think it can be nice and carries on your name.
His character name was Thomas Sullivan Magnum.
God bless and keep well. Barb

Mitchell (my son's name), Kayden, Camden, Mason (my favorite but my last name is Dixon, that wouldn't be good! LOL)? You could also do a double first name or two middle names to smooth it out. I wanted to use my grandfather's name, Roy but it was hard to match with anything. So my son is Mitchell Steven Roy after dad and papa. Good luck and I'd love to know what you choose.

Most anything can go with "John," but at issue in your choice is what the child's last name will be. Consider two things, for instance: (1) You might not want to have the last sound (or two) of the middle name (or the last sounds of the first name, for that matter) to be the same as the first sound of the last name. Think of it this way, for example: "Lowell Long" is a little difficult to say. (2) Go for 2-3 syllables in his first name. A one-syllable first name doesn't necessarily "feel" right when followed by a one-syllable middle name...but you probably already know that.
The beauty of all this, though, is that "John" itself works beautifully with so many other names, plus--assuming Coffman will be your baby's name, and of course that may not be (it wasn't for us--my husband and I have different last names)--he'll have some good strong consonant sounds to follow his first and/or middle name when spoken. Given that, my suggestions would be things like Alexander and Patrick, or maybe even Vincent or Michael.
Have fun deciding, and congratulations! :-)

I agree with Amie Brown. I gave my daughter my mom's name as a middle name and found a 1st name we liked. So her name is Avriel Darla; doesn't go together but that's okay and like Amie said people won't use his middle name that often.
Also, when you hear the name you'll know.. it's kinda like falling in love, you just know that's the one. - Good luck.

My suggestion is go with what name do you like. How often do people really use your middle name? If your honoring someone by using their name for the middle that great. Don't worry so much if the first and middle name sound funny. You really on say them both when your really mad at the kid and the way the names sound together at that point is the least of their problems.

Most names could go with John so long as they don't rhyme with it or end in a "j" sound. Since it is a one-syllable name, a multi-syllable name would sound best, too. Austin, Colton, Caleb, Carson, or Cameron are some suggestions.
