I take it he’s not keen on pushing his name to the middle spot? [name_m]Lucas[/name_m] [name_m]Alejandro[/name_m] sounds really nice.

These situations are always so tough. When it comes down to it, you and he will have to have an honest discussion(s) and work it out in a way that makes everyone happy. It’s hard when each parent had their heart set on something different though.

Would it be OK to make one of the names the middle name?

What if you made the name [name_m]Alejandro[/name_m] [name_m]Lucas[/name_m], but you call him by his middle name, [name_m]Lucas[/name_m]? This really isn’t uncommon in this kind of situation. I know a couple of guys who use their middle name, while their legal first name is actually their dad’s name. The dad gets his name honor, but the family avoids having to call “[name_m]Junior[/name_m]” or "Big [name_m]John[/name_m] and [name_m]Little[/name_m] [name_m]John[/name_m],"and the son gets his own identity, too. Everyone wins!
