I love the name Ian for our newest addition to the family. My husband loves the name Ian Bryan Richardson but I don't think it flows nicely. What suggest do you have for other middle names.

The reason it may not flow so well, may be the fact the Ian and Bryan and Richardson!, all end in the letter N

Have you looked at the middle names of the men in his and your families? it can be a nice tribute to a grandfather or uncle. (I like Ian Micheal BTW lol)

I liked the Ian Scott but it's really up to you and your husband. Just think about when he gets to be a teen will he still like his name?

What about looking at all the first and middle names of people in your family or loved ones. When my daughter was born we new her middle name was going to be Mary after a woman I knew growing up who was like a second mother to me. And for my son we used my husbands and father in laws middle name for him....which is Patrick. But if you cant find anything that way...I like the sounds of Ian Patrick :)

Ian William
Ian Joseph
Ian Xaiver
Ian Marcus

I think it would help to know what the significance would be. Like are you naming the baby after a family member or are you just looking for something that flows?

Michael always works well with Ian. A bit more traditional name, so some may not like it.

I agree that Bryan doesn't flow so well... I think it's too many ending in N names. Here are a few suggestions...
Ian Luke
Ian Oliver
Ian Christopher **my personal fave!)
Ian Michael (stolen from PP but i like it!)
