How many names is too many?
My SO has a family tradition of having a second middle name for each child - Mary for a girl and Joseph for a boy.
It was never a cause for concern until he decided that he wanted to hyphenate his birth father and adoptive father's last name and have his surname legally changed as such. I understand why he made the choice and fully respect his choice, however I'm starting to feel that five names might be one name too many for our future children.
First Middle Middle Last-Last (last name is 3 syllables in total)
What do you think? Is five names too many?
