my husband and i have struggled over a boys name for years (currently trying) and he would like the middle name to be after his grandfather who was also his best friend that passed - john carl. i struggle with it due to me wanting my child to have his or her own unique name, something original and distinguishable. i threw out the idea to use the name jack after john (as a middle name)… which was quickly shot down. carl also happens to be the name of my husband’s best friend. so, then i am left with potentially having my sons name be a hyphenated 4 name combo for the sake of it being different. something like bromley alden-carl … or should i just bite the bullet and let him have the middle name and decide on a first name together??
please let me know your thoughts… or any other names that could spin off either john or carl and still have the memory in mind when naming our child. thanks in advance!
