1 or 2 middles?

What are your opinions on 2 middle names. I’m thinking of refining my combos down to just one middle name each.
these are my girl names with two middles:

Margot [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u]
[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] [name_f]Iris[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f]
[name_f]Isadora[/name_f] [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f]
[name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] [name_u]Dove[/name_u]
[name_f]Athena[/name_f] [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]
[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_f]Delilah[/name_f] [name_f]Joy[/name_f]

and with just one:

Margot [name_f]Felicity[/name_f]
[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f]
[name_f]Isadora[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f]
[name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]
[name_f]Athena[/name_f] [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f]
[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_f]Delilah[/name_f]

do you prefer them with one or two?

I prefer…

Margot [name_f]Felicity[/name_f]
[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f]
[name_f]Isadora[/name_f] [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f]
[name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]
[name_f]Athena[/name_f] [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]
[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_f]Delilah[/name_f] [name_f]Joy[/name_f]

I usually prefer one middle, but let me just say that there is literally no name, individual or combined, on that list that I do not like?! There are some I’m eh on ([name_f]Pearl[/name_f], [name_f]Lilia[/name_f], [name_u]Dove[/name_u]) but you seriously have so many names that I love and/or are on my own user card. [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] [name_f]Iris[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] is one of the most incredible NB names I’ve ever seen.

Honestly, with you I would say two middles just because they’re so pretty. Plus, I think you have the flow down, which is difficult to do with three-name combos. I literally commented just to tell you how much I love your list, though. If I met someone with any of these combos as their name, I would be out of my mind jealous.

I think all of your combos flow better with just one middle!

As someone who prefers one middle combos, I love your single middle choices

I love them with 2 middles especially [name_f]Margot[/name_f] [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u]!

Personally it’s not for me. I find it overkill. [name_f]My[/name_f] boys just have one middle name.

I think having 2 middles is a good idea when you want to honor one person and have a fun middle of your choosing or if you have 2 people to honor. If they are just names you adore, then sometimes I think it can be too much, especially if there are lots of letters in the names combined. For example, I think [name_f]Isadora[/name_f] [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f] is a little much. I like the simpler combos in general more. [name_f]Margot[/name_f] [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] is my favorite!

Another vote for 1 middle. I feel like two is usually too much of a mouthful, and even more so when paired with a last name

All sound better with one middle, with the exception of [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_f]Delilah[/name_f] [name_f]Joy[/name_f], which to me sounds even more complete with [name_f]Joy[/name_f] at the end.

@penelope_lynson @12queen
thanks so much guys, I also feel like some of them sound better with 2 and others with just one but I think i’d rather have them all with the same amount of middles if that makes sense.

@Artemis31 That makes sense! Actually, my boy combos also have only one middle which is why i’m thinking the same with my girl combos. thank you!!

@rosejuliet Thanks for your help, you make a good point!!

@flamingo [name_f]Joy[/name_f] is a name I really want to add in somewhere because it’s an honour name but it feels a little lonely as a single middle. Thanks for you help xxx

@kidpix21 thanks so much!!

I prefer two middles personally, just because there’s so many names I love I can’t squeeze them all into one middle combos! But I think that just one middle is lovely too, and in your case I think either works amazingly. Frrom your list I prefer:

Margot [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u]
[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] [name_f]Iris[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f]
[name_f]Isadora[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f]
[name_f]Lilia[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]
[name_f]Athena[/name_f] [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f]
[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_f]Delilah[/name_f] [name_f]Joy[/name_f]

I love using two middle names, especially in hypothetical combos without a last name or with a one syllable last name like mine. They sound more… complete, I guess? Out of yours, I like:
[name_f]Margot[/name_f] [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_u]Wren[/name_u]
[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] (I think I prefer [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] [name_f]Iris[/name_f] though)
[name_f]Isadora[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f] ([name_f]Isadora[/name_f] [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] would be so cute)
[name_f]Lillia[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] [name_u]Dove[/name_u]
[name_f]Athena[/name_f] [name_f]Madeleine[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]
[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_f]Delilah[/name_f] [name_f]Joy[/name_f]
