    I cant help but think Mr Average Office Man, busting out of his average office clothes and revealing his super hero outfit hidden underneath(aka Clark Kent/Superman).

    Sorry, it just doesnt sound "right" for want of a better word.

    I hope my poll isn't broken already and this is my problem. When DH first suggested it my immediate reaction was no, not with our surname. The longer I think about it though, the more I like it.... it's strange.

    Default Does this sound wrong?

    Whack a long middle name in and it will be great

    Brock Alexander Birch

    Just for an example (not saying to choose it), just showing how it looks different and unporno like with a long middle name

    Alexander was the middle name I used in my example..... I know fully written it helps, but as we don't call people by their middle names I wonder if in the long term it really helps. Alexander would probably be the middle name as it's a long standing family name in my family

    I like Brock but not with your surname. We also liked it and have a surname beginning with B so I couldn't do it. It sounds too matchy for me, I don't like names with the same initials at the surname.

    I think it sounds terrible together even with a long middle name he will still be Brock Birch.

    Was it??? Ha ha I didn't read that right then. Might explain why that word was in my head.


    Actually I am almost always referred to by my first and middle name. By most people. It's been like it since I was little.
