The name Levi stems from the Hebrew word yillaweh, meaning “he will join.” It’s a timeless, classic name that plays very well with Mason.
Mason and Shane fit extremely well together, and it wasn’t a name that was front-of-mind, so we really appreciate this suggestion. Shane is a variation of Sean, an Irish name that means “God is gracious.”
Lee is such a versatile, gender-neutral name that works well with tons of first names. The name has English origins and means “meadow.” Mason Lee is such a perfect pairing we feel like it could be the name of a novelist or even a brand name.
The Spanish name, Rey has the benefit of sounding exactly like Ray but it implies royalty. The name means “king.” Mason Rey or Mason Ray are both excellent options and we were happy to see it suggested.
Cole was one of the most recommended middle names by our readers. It’s an English name that’s especially popular in Scotland. It means “coal black.” Mason Cole sounds like a name for a detective in a Film Noir.
In the UK, Kent is a common surname as well as a place name. However, in Scandinavia, the name has a fantastic meaning: “edge.” We love a name with a little edge. Mason Kent has an excellent ring to it and we appreciate the folks we submitted it!
The name Dean is having a resurgence and it’s climbing the popularity charts in the US. The name has English origins and means “church official.” We’ve always found Dean to be a somewhat butch name and we think it helps bring even more strength to a name like Mason.
The surname Knox dates back at least to the thirteenth century, and John Knox was the priest who brought about the Reformation in Scotland. This Scottish name means “round hill.” Mason Knox was another name that was put forth by several readers.
Avery is a unisex name that’s been trending for girls in the US. However, we absolutely love this name for baby boys. It’s another English name and it means “ruler of the elves.” That meaning, alone, is enough reason to choose it as a middle.
Henry has been a popular name in the US since records have been kept. It’s been steadily in the top 100 for the last 35 years. Mason Henry is an appealing pairing. The name has German origins and means “ruler.”
We got suggestions for both Andrew and Drew, but we’re rather fond of a one-syllable middle name so we are pushing Drew. Mason Drew sounds easy, breezy, casual, and fun. The name has Greek origins and means “strong.”
Some parents really enjoy alliteration for first and middle names. So, we’re bringing you a couple of M-name options. Monroe was suggested a few times and we love Mason Monroe. The name has Scottish origins and means “mouth of the Roe River.”
Another marvelous M-name, Maxwell brings a classy, stately vibe when put with Mason. Yet again, this is another Scottish name. It means “great stream.”
It’s interesting that Carter was suggested because it’s also an English occupational name. Mason comes from “stonemason” and Carter, “transporter of goods by cart.” It’s undeniable that Mason Carter is a winning combination.
Oh, la la! Mason Cash? To us, the name sounds like “make some cash,” but go ahead, MU readers. Cash is derived from the Latin, Cassius and it means “hollow.”
There have been six popes named Paul. If you’re after a middle name with religious (Christian) significance, Paul would be a fine choice. The name has Latin origins and means “small.”
Many people don’t know that the name Chase actually comes from French. Of course, it means “to hunt.” Because this name is also an action verb, it brings a first name like Mason to life.
Mason Finn would be an excellent choice and a number of readers put it forward. Finn is an Irish name with great cultural significance that means “fair.”
Believe it or not, Tate has Nordic roots and means “cheerful.” This short, blunt middle name will work best if you have a longer, more complex last name. For instance, Mason Tate Williamson sounds better than Mason Tate Brown.
The name Xavier is a boy’s name of Arabic, Basque origin meaning “new house” or “bright.” Xavier helps elevate a first name like Mason to a more sophisticated level. Whereas a blunt name like Tate will fit best for longer names, Xavier is the opposite. Mason Xavier Brown sounds much better than Mason Xavier Williamson.
Blake is an English name that means “black.” When in doubt for a middle name, go with Blake. For whatever reason, Blake and Lee work well for just about any name. Mason Blake was a great suggestion.
Allen is a splendid name with Celtic origins that means “handsome.” Mason Allen was one of the most popular suggestions.
Mason Lane sounds like the name of a street in the neighborhood you grew up in, but readers seemed to really love it. Yes, Lane does indeed mean a “small path.” If you’re after a name that conjures images of a treelined road, Mason Lane’s definitely your speed.
