    Is John a family name? What about just including his family name as the regular middle name? I guess that's not a good option since you don't like it, but is it really that bad? I love the idea of a family name in the middle, even if it's way out there or doesn't sound like a name. I'm a fan of that tradition. Just a thought, since you're "getting" Theodore ... don't want to cause more drama!

    I know, I know... I wish I could just suck it up and use the middle name as the one and only, but I DESPISE it... What do you think? The family name is: Winkle. I just see endless teasing possibilities there...

    I have to agree with you. Your husband really wants to pass it on? Does he have the name?

    Yes, it is his second middle name. It is the only family name he wants to pass on because it was his mother's maiden name & she was an only child. If we do not use it the name will die... but I would love for the name to NOT get passed on as I think it is awful. I don't know what to do. He keeps stating that no other name matters to him which I cannot understand.

    My side has wonderful family names to pass on, such as Coolidge (we are related to the president). I am just frustrated that this ONE name is the only name he wants to work with.

    Hmmm ... you're right, that is a very unfortunate name. BUT as the middle name, most bully-types will never know it. You could even put W. on anything that other kids might see if ti comes down to that. If it really means a lot to your husband to pass it on, it seems like a must, BUT I'm just realizing that you said your husband has two middles and his second middle initial is W -- I assume that's Winkle? In which case, it would make perfect sense for your son to be Theodore John Winkle. Sorry for throwing a wrench in the works. I'm not used to two middle names, and neither is my husband, so if I suggested putting a name he liked or a family name as a second middle it would be the equivalent of not even using it, which is why I suggested using it as the sole middle. But that is clearly not at all the case here -- it seems like the family tradition to pass along two middles with W. as the second middle. Sorry about that. I should have paid closer attention!
