    HELP! Middle name dilemma

    Hi Berries, I'm trying to choose a middle name and am having some trouble. My husband and I have decided on the first name Grayson. He is giving me full authority on the middle name. So..... do I choose the middle name James which is my father's name, my grandfathers name, my great-great grandfathers name and my hubs middle name? Or do I choose Michael which is my hubs name and my hubs fathers name? I'll throw in this caveat: we do not get along with his fathers side so choosing Michael wouldn't be to honor his father - it would be to honor my hubs. My gut says to choose James since it has such a long history with my family but didn't know if Michael maybe sounded better with Grayson? I will also add that our last name is one syllable. What do you all think?

    Grayson James H
    Grayson Michael H

    I think both Grayson James and Grayson Michael are fabulous. My inclination would be to use Grayson James, since it honors your husband, as well, but I do think Grayson Michael is less "AY" heavy. Although I think the 2-1 flow of Grayson James works really well, better than Grayson Michael. I don't think you could really go wrong, but there's more family significance with Grayson James, which would speak to me.

    Good luck!

    I agree you have two great options. Grayson James is my mild preference but Grayson Michael works well. I think it sounds like Michael would be a great mn option for any future sons (or likewise if you go with Michael this time, James in the future makes sense).

    Based just on sound & style, I think Grayson James works better. And, it's also got the better history and honors so many people in your life. I'd def. go with James.

    Thanks everyone! I'm still not on board 100% with Grayson but that's what the hubs likes.
