It's acceptable.

I think it is confusing. If it is an honor name and you don't like it why leave your child stuck with it.

I love think it's ok, but not preferable. I know a couple of boys that go by their middle names and it is confusing. It is acceptable though.

My nephew was meant to go by his middle name and he does with family (I think, at least most) but in school he always went by his first name and never told the teachers that he wanted to go by his middle name. It did get pretty confusing honestly. I would suggest to either go by the first name or find a new middle name that will go with the name you want her to be called.

Totally acceptable but definitely confusing. I have a relative who goes by their middle name for the exact reasons you describe (flowed better on this order) and they say that they'd prefer the name to have just not flowed as well

As a person who goes by their middle name, please make it their first name! I would rather my name not flow as well and have my legal name be the one I prefer and have gone by my whole life! It gets very confusing in situations such as school and will be difficult when I get a job as well.

I have been referred to by my middle name all my life ..it can be confusing ..my mum thought it sounded better the other way round, which it actually does so I see why she did it
