Please vote in my poll. Here's some more details....
If we have a boy I'd like to use 2 middle names - Nathaniel (after my husband) and Glenn (after my 1st dad who died when I was 2).
Nathan thinks having 2 middle names is a bit much and would rather have just one. He wants to use Glenn.
If we did use just one, I'd like to use Glenn as well. HOWEVER, Glenn doesn't work as well with the 1st names we're considering (I KNOW - we still haven't decided for sure!!!), except for one of them. The one that Glenn works better for also starts with an N, which is why Nathaniel wouldn't work as well - two N names in a row and all that.
Nathaniel Glenn works for all names except the N one, in which case we could use Glenn Nathaniel.
Since we are done having kids after this, I can't "save" one of the names to use next time because there isn't going to be a next time.
I don't want to use Nathaniel as the first name, with Glenn as the middle name - because of the confusion between Nathan and the baby. Nathan goes by Nathan or Nath or even just Nah to his sisters. So, the only other nickname available is Nate and I don't like that one. I also wouldn't want to use the full Nathaniel all the time either. So - that's not an option.
So, the options are....
Just use both names - yeah it's long, but they're both sentimental so it's worth it.
Just use Glenn.
Just use Nathaniel.
Use only one - whichever one works best with the 1st name we end up deciding on.
