2 middle names- How much is too much?
Can everyone pull of two middle names and how long is too long? We think that we want to name our twins Althea Ellington and Theodore Augustus. Would it be obnoxious to extend that to Althea Ellington Faith and Theodore Augustus Peace? Faith would be for the virtue but also artist Faith Ringgold. How much is too much when it comes to a name? Should we just skip the second middle name?

Two is pushing it, but still okay. I wouldn't do three, though, unless you're royalty or whatever.Annie, mid-twenties, vegetarian, name lover. No kids yet, just two furbabies - Roxy & Layla.

I don't see the problem with using two middle names. I've loved the idea since I was 8 and discovered that my cousins had two middle names not one. I was so jealous. But you would have to be careful with adding an extra name to two long names or it might become to much. Both the names you listed would only work if you have a shorter last name, IMO anyway.Current Favorites:
