    Thanks everyone!

    My dad's name doesn't 'go' with any of the names we like, and neither DH nor I like his name at all. It also doesn't go with our surname.

    It's not family tradition per se but I like the abstract idea of using a family name... if only it was a name I actually liked!

    My dad had a pretty awful family unfortunately. I actually like his dad's name, but he was an abusive alcoholic so we're certainly not going to use that!

    I think we might just have to go with the non-family name that we like.

    We broke DFs family tradition with middle names. All the oldest boys in each family are given the middle name Hezekiah. We do not like the name at all so instead we chose to give DS my dads name as a middle name. DF actually suggested my dads name as the middle name. His reasons were its much nicer, and DS was having DFs surname so he should have something from my family. We had a few comments from DFs sister but I couldn't care less

    Go with what you like.
    .
    But remember you can choose more than one middle name, surname too for that matter - so you can always opt to have both
