    Mattias Flynn or Mattias Cosmo?

    We're going with Mattias for the first name and now we need a middle name!

    Trying to decide between Mattias Flynn Callahan or Mattias Cosmo Callahan.

    He has an older brother named Nicolas Felix.

    Your thoughts?

    P.S.: Mattias Flynn would lead to the initials MF... a problem or not?

    Thanks for your help!

    Alex

    I voted for Cosmo. I think the alliteration makes the name roll into Callahan nicely, whereas Flynn Callahan is more halting because of the two n-endings.
    Cosmo is an excellent name, given depth by it's link to the Medicis and Saint Cosmas, but also cool and modern because of those two Os and the word "cosmos." I think Mattias Cosmo is a great match for a brother to Nicolas Felix.
    Flynn, while nicely Irish, seems like a hipster Errol Flynn reference to me. Incongruous next to old, lovely Mattias.

    Mattias Cosmo got my vote. Cosmo is interesting, handsome, and almost completely unused. Flynn is awkward and sounds like "phlegm."
