FN + MN, or Double FN +MN?
I've posted before that I would like a longer form of Ruth to use (although I cannot use Ruth Ann.) I think I may have found a combo I like: Ruth Ellen. Now the question is: use it as a double FN and add a MN (Ruth-Ellen _____), or just use it as a FN/MN combo (just Ruth Ellen)? Part of me would like to use the double FN because I feel Ruth is a little short on its own, the problem is I cannot find a MN that doesn't seem to spoil it. Any ideas/opinions?
Note: I really dislike not having a MN, so using a double FN and no MN is not an option.~*~Ari-Lee~*~

I personally don't like double first names. It is confusing for people and too complicated. Two middle names is ok but two first names is ugh too much. Unless you smash them together. Ok: Ruthann. NOT Ok: Ruth Ann. I know you said you didn't like that combo but I used it anyways. LOL. Just my thoughts. First name: Ruth. Middle name: Ann Rose. Last name: Smith. Works fine!.. Hope this isn't too complicated. hehe

I have a double first name, and it really has been a headache, but it's not the end of the world. Unless they're smooshed or hyphenated (and sometimes even when they're hyphenated) people assume the second name is a middle name and you're being needlessly formal. However, usually one quick explanation does it. Not always, but usually. I don't recommend double first names, and I think Ruth is good enough on its own.
Ruth Ellen Lastname sounds great together. Ruth for the first name, Ellen for the middle. Best of luck!Plenty of novel babies but no real ones for a few more years.
