Poll: How many middles?
So. I love names. DH is down with potentially two middles, but I am sort of thinking of three. I know that's a lot. DH says it just isn't done, so we can't do it either. What do you think? Where do...

I love Pax! Also love Knox and Dex! Dex I fell in love with after watching The Philadelphia Story (Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant). I think Pax is my favorite, then Dex, then Knox. Good luck!
