I’m from the Southwest part of the US, spending my time along the [name_u]West[/name_u] Coast (primarily [name_u]California[/name_u]) and [name_u]New[/name_u] [name_f]England[/name_f] (mostly Massachusetts). I plan to move to the [name_u]New[/name_u] [name_f]England[/name_f] area in the future. I prefer double names, but I’m curious if one of them would be recognized as being too Southern. The name is [name_m]Christopher[/name_m] [name_m]Robert[/name_m] [name_u]Lee[/name_u], all 3 of which are honor names for very specific people. Would it be better to make this a single mn, even if all the others are double mns? I fear if I chose any other name for the 3rd spot (and use [name_u]Lee[/name_u] in another combo), the name would be too long. I’ve thought about using [name_u]Christian[/name_u] (family mn which comes from our Danish family last name – Christensen – and hasn’t been used since 1948 when the last [name_u]Christian[/name_u] died) in place of [name_m]Christopher[/name_m] and/or [name_u]Robin[/name_u] or Seabert in place of [name_m]Robert[/name_m], but I’m not entirely sure.
Due to the number of people with the same name in the family (we have 6 Chrises (m&f), a [name_f]Krissy[/name_f] and a [name_f]Kristi[/name_f] as well as 15 or 16 people with [name_m]Robert[/name_m] somewhere in their names, many of which go by [name_m]Bob[/name_m], [name_u]Bobby[/name_u], [name_m]Rob[/name_m] or [name_u]Robby[/name_u]), I’ll be using the nn [name_u]Rory[/name_u] from day 1 if I go with this name (the alternative is to use the girl’s name Orestina to honor [name_u]Chris[/name_u] & [name_m]Rob[/name_m]).
Please let me know what you think.
ETA: I have roots in the [name_u]South[/name_u] (part of my family were among the first to settle [name_u]North[/name_u] [name_f]Carolina[/name_f]) and I have family currently from there. I’m more nervous about the accidental association with famous historical figures.
