So, I’m far from having children but in all probability my firstborn daughter will be named [name]Mary[/name] (unless my husband detests it beyond belief, basically). She would probably go by Mol quite a lot, but also by [name]Mary[/name].
Because of this, I’ve pretty much resigned myself to the fact that one of my all time favourite boys’ names, [name]Joseph[/name] (nn [name]Joe[/name], or even Sepp/Seph), would have to be a middle name. But, would it really be that bad? Would it be like naming my children [name]Romeo[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name]? Would [name]Mary[/name] and [name]Joseph[/name] stand out to you among several siblings?
