    Default Kids with 2 middle names

    what do u think when someone has 2 middle names??

    so 4 names in total Inc last name.

    I never liked it but dh wants our baby to have 2 because we can't agree on one together so use both.

    help.. am I right in thinking it's annoying for the kid?

    My DS has 2 middle names. I don't see an issue with it personally.

    All my boys (3) have two middle names. Honestly other than filling out forms when they're older how often does it come up? Not an issue imo.

    Default Kids with 2 middle names

    I don't see an issue with it but I would try to keep it consistent within siblings. I.e. have all kids have two or all the kids have one. My grandma's sister had two middle names and while grandma didn't have a middle name at all. I remember her complaining about it even when she was in her seventies!

    ETA: of course there is the possibility that grandma just disliked her sister and it wouldn't be an issue for other siblings.

    I'm in trouble then, my oldest has 1 middle name and youngest has 2 middles names.

    I think it depends on the names middle name annoys me because its very long so filling out forms is very very annoying. I'm hoping my DD will forgive me as both her middle names are short and can easily be transformed to 1 as Amelia-Anne

    Why would it be annoying? When telling people their name, kids generally only give their first anyway.
    Our DD has two middle names.
    All my siblings have two- one has three.

    I have four.

    DS has 2 middle names because the one we wanted didn't sound right next to his surname so we chose an extra name to go between them! DH has 2 middle names too and SIL has 3! Doesn't bother DH though.

    I have two middle names and I always found it quite annoying. My siblings and I were all given our mum's maiden name as a second middle name. I like that it is a connection to my mums family, but to be honest it is mostly a PITA. I often leave my second middle name off forms and so on because there is often no space for it. I always knew I would only give my own children just the one middle name.

    None of my siblings are keen on their second middle name either.

    I have two middle names but as pp said I only use the first middle name on official forms/licence so really it's like the second one doesn't exist. No biggie here.
