Two Middle Names! Good Idea Or Not??

What are some pros & cons about having two middle names?

I’m kind of considering [name]Harlow[/name] [name]Shae[/name] [name]Dacy[/name] or [name]Harlow[/name] [name]Dacy[/name] [name]Shae[/name]

If you go to the Talk About Names section and click on the 4th page, there’s a great thread discussing this topic. You should check it out! :slight_smile:

Here’s the link to that discussion: I’m also going to send this to [name]Linda[/name], who I know has been working on a blog on this topic!

Thank you. I will check it out immediately.

I don’t like two middle names it looks like you couldn’t make up your mind on a name!!

But honestly, I can’t really make up my mind. I adore [name]Harlow[/name], [name]Dacy[/name], and [name]Shae[/name] so I think [name]Harlow[/name] [name]Dacy[/name] [name]Shae[/name] is a nice solution to ym problem

I like two middle names, I think it’s very elegant or something! Very European! Ha!
And I love [name]Harlow[/name] [name]Dacy[/name] [name]Shae[/name]…It flows in that order better than the other way you had!

both of my kids have 2 middle names, I think it flows better than one middle name, and its also a good way to have a name you like and include a family name or a name of some significance. For example, my oldest is [name]Ellie[/name] [name]Sarah[/name] [name]Jane[/name] - [name]Ellie[/name] and [name]Sarah[/name] both being names I love, and [name]Jane[/name] is a family name. My other is [name]Clare[/name] [name]Emily[/name] [name]Ann[/name] - except [name]Emily[/name] and [name]Ann[/name] are both family names (I wanted [name]Emilie[/name], but my husband wanted it to be after his sister). I like the flow of [name]Harlow[/name] [name]Dacy[/name] [name]Shae[/name], [name]Shae[/name] is so cute :slight_smile:

I like it but that may create difficulty when filling out forms. Are you against combining the two into “Dacyshea”?

I just remember kids in school always running into trouble with their multiple middle names. One kid in my fifth grade class had five middle names! He thought he had to always list every single one when asked for his initials. I have memories from this one art class where I waited behind him for what seemed like forever for the teacher to initial his project!

Okay done my rant. Two certainly isn’t five. I’ve just encountered tests and such before that don’t leave a lot of middle name space!
