I have noticed some posts on this site discussing two middle names.
My brother and his wife were having trouble deciding on a middle name for their little boy and mentioned at dinner one night the possibility of using all four names. I typically try to only give positive name advice to my friends and family (avoiding telling them when I don’t love a name), however… When he mentioned the possibility of 4 names I did speak up. He is my brother.
I told them I would be afraid of snags and people getting confused, Issues with Social Security, etc. I have heard stories of people of South American decent with the tradition of keeping family names, and difficulties they have encountered. I asked the simple question: why put your child through that just because you can’t make up your mind?
Then the funny part…
My five year old niece says without skipping a beat, “then just pick one daddy.”
Does anyone here have or have a spouse with two middles? What is your experience?
