I’ve written before but now have a new question for you all.
My 4 yr. old daugher is named [name]Eleanor[/name] F (my last name which i kept) D (husband’s last name). At the time, I really wanted her to maintain a connection to my side of the family since I’ll be the last generation to carry my last name and I thought 2 middle names to be unnecessary. Of course, now 4 years later, I’m all about using as many names as possible.
Now we are expecting twins, a boy and a girl, and for some reason this time around I feel like i want to give them middle names (after my grandparents) but i’d also like to add my last name in there as well. For example, for the twin boy I have [name]Nathaniel[/name] [name]Micah[/name] F (2 syllables) D(one syllable).
[name]Do[/name] you think it’s awkward that my first, [name]Eleanor[/name], will not have a second middle name? On the other hand, it really gives me a chance to honor more family members. Would love some feedback on this dilemna. I even thought of going back and adding another mn to [name]Eleanor[/name] so that she wouldn’t feel left out.
Also, still have no clue for the girl’s name other than that the middle name would be either [name]Claire[/name] or [name]Clara[/name] after my grandmother. There are only 3 names that my husband and I more or less agree on. Would love your thoughts on these as well. They are:
[name]Gwendolen[/name] [name]Claire[/name] (not sure if too many consonants with our short D last name - concerned that it might be too much of a mouthful)
[name]Juliet[/name] [name]Claire[/name] (saw this one on another post - sorry if i’m poaching but i really liked it)
[name]Charlotte[/name] + new middle name (as [name]Charlotte[/name] would stand for the [name]Clara[/name] after my grandmother)
So, it would be [name]Eleanor[/name], [name]Nathaniel[/name] and ?
Thanks again for all your help!
