What are your thoughts about double barrelled middle names or just two middle names? Has it ever caused any issues on paperwork, birth certificate, etc.? Just curious …
I have always loved the thought of giving a baby girl a name that honors the great grandmothers on mine & my fiancé’s side of the family or a name that honors our mothers. I was never close to my dad’s side, so I would honor my mom’s mother (my Oma who passed away before I was born). I have my mom’s mother’s name as my middle name, which is Paulina.
Carmen - My fiancé’s paternal grandmother’s name
Vita - My fiancé’s maternal grandmother’s name
Paulina - My maternal grandmother’s name
Lorraine - My fiancé’s mom’s middle name
Laila - Variant name of my mom’s name Helga
Bernadine or Bernelle - Variant names of my fiancé’s mom’s name Bernadette
Thank you, & I am just worried about second middle name getting lost, but if we were to hyphenate the middle name, I dont want it to look like one middle name squished together as some people have told me happens sometimes.
I hear you on that! [name_f]Every[/name_f] once in awhile, my husband will get something in the mail addressed to Mr. FirstName FirstMiddle LastName, omitting the second middle name. Anything offical or important has it all, so it’s never seemed like a big deal to him.
I have two middle names, and my second middle name tends to get removed altogether on paperwork such as insurance information or job applications.
For the really important stuff; birth certificates, licenses, etc. I’ve been able to enter them both.
I would say not to do a hyphen for a middle, mainly because it makes it harder to tell that it’s a middle name.
I have two middles right now because I wanted to keep both my married name and my maiden name, but didn’t want to have two last names, nor did I want to have to worry about it for important things, like signatures and such. Anyway, having two middles has not been a struggle! It’s rare to have any paperwork that requires a middle all, let alone one that I’d have to put both, other than really important documents and such. Most of the time, I just skip adding a middle unless it’s required (like for a driver’s license or something that has to match my driver’s license). Most things that ask for a middle initial only let you put one letter, so I either leave that blank or just do my first middle. It really hasn’t been a hassle, and it has been much easier than having a 2 last names where I would actually have to put it on most things haha.
[name_f]My[/name_f] friend has given her son 2 middles (as traditional for the oldest son to follow a certain naming pattern), and I don’t think she’s had issues either.
I love [name_f]Vita[/name_f] [name_f]Laila[/name_f] [name_f]Lorraine[/name_f] or [name_f]Vita[/name_f] [name_f]Laila[/name_f] [name_f]Pauline[/name_f] which i know werent in your options, i think the flow is nice and love the name [name_f]Vita[/name_f]! I have 2 middle names and my children have 2 middle names. Never been an issue , no need to double barrell them x
Omg, I really love your name suggestions!!! I never even thought of those. Soooo pretty!! [name_u]Love[/name_u] the flow of [name_f]Vita[/name_f] [name_f]Laila[/name_f] [name_f]Lorraine[/name_f]. I actually had [name_f]Laila[/name_f] [name_f]Lorraine[/name_f] & [name_f]Laila[/name_f] [name_f]Vita[/name_f] on the list as well. Haha Great minds think alike. Ok, I wont double barrell the middle names then.
