I feel like converting my list to single middles takes away from the uniqueness of my names, and takes out a lot of names that Tim and I both love. But I figured having a back-up singles list isn't a bad idea.

So...which do you prefer? :wub:

I am personally a fan of just single middle names, though some of the double combos you've got are quite nice.

I like:

Castiel Scott (though Scott Robin has a nice ring to it as a double)
Marlowe Judith
Freya Elizabeth

I love double middle names! Sometimes they can seem a little jumbled and a bit of an overload, but I think all of your names sound really well balanced!

Favorite Singles:
Castiel Scott
Pacey Jack
Nahla Nicole
Marlowe Rae
Lyra Madigan
Freya Elizabeth

I absolutely adore Odin Timothy Keats, Lane Oliver Stark, and Wylie Memphis Ann! :wub:

Before I select which ones I prefer, I just want to let you know that I generally prefer single middle names - they just seem simpler, cleaner, less complicated to me. Anyway, here's which ones I prefer:


Leonidas Micah Ray / Leonidas Ray


Odin Timothy Keats / Odin Timothy


Castiel Robin Scott / Castiel Scott / Castiel Robin


Pacey William Jack / Pacey William / Pacey Jack


Magnus Edward Finn / Magnus Edward


Lane Oliver Stark / Lane Oliver


Arrow Dean Howard / Arrow Dean



Nahla Terri Nicole / Nahla Terri / Nahla Nicole


Karinne Laura Poet / Karinne Laura


Wylie Memphis Ann / Wylie Ann


Marlowe Judith Rae / Marlowe Judith / Marlowe Rae


Lenore Sonnet Mia / Lenore Mia


Ruby Taormina Lee / Ruby Taormina


Lyra Madigan Fable / Lyra Madigan / Lyra Nicole


Freya Elizabeth Luna / Freya Elizabeth / Freya Luna

Though I love all of your names (<3), single middles are more MY style. So some I would personally prefer with only one middle.


I love the following more with 2 middles:

Odin Timothy Keats

Magnus Edward Finn

Lane Oliver Stark

-

Karinne Laura Poet

Wylie Memphis Ann (Wylie Ann makes me think "Why Leanne?")

Ruby Taormina Lee


And these with one:

Leonidas Ray (Though I love Micah)

Castiel Robin

Pacey William

Arrow Dean (Not sure if I like Howard in that combo)

-

Nahla Terri

Marlowe Judith

Lenore Mia (Though I really like Sonnet)

Lyra Madigan

Freya Elizabeth



I would LOVE Karinne Poet. (Karinne Laura doesn't flow the same..)




Your names are always unique.. and I do feel like they're more YOU with the extra middle. :wub:

I LOVE pretty much all of your double middle name combos. And I agree, loosing the second middle name in most of your combos takes away from YOUR personal style. My family was a little taken aback when I said we were going to give Wiley two middle names and a few of my friends thought it was odd but most only commented on the length of the overall name which didn't bother me.
