    Smile Johnson as a first name...?

    Thinking of naming our baby boy

    Johnson Montgomery

    our last name is a longer French name.

    My questions for you...

    1. Id it ridiculous to have 3 "last names" as your name?

    2. My husband brought up thr fact that Johnson is a slang word for a penis. Does that resenate with you at all? It didnt for me. Haha

    3. I want to call him "Johnse" (John-zee, with the emphasis on John)

    4. Your honest opinion of the name

    Thanks

    p.s. Bro and sister are Abraham (Abe) and Maria

    I love Montgomery but I'm not a fan of really common surnames (think Smith, Jones, etc.) being used as first names. I do like some surname names, but mostly rarer ones... though where I draw the line I'm not even sure; I kind of do it case by case. I can't really see Johnson as a first name. I've only heard the Johnson/penis connection on Nameberry, never in real life. I live in Ontario, Canada if it makes a difference... maybe it's a regional thing? Johnse seems kind of awkward but it could grow on me.

    That was the first thing that came to mind. I think it would be for a lot of people. I can see a lot of teasing in Johnson's future.

    It was the first thing I thought of too.

    I like some surnames as first names, but I don't particularly care for Johnson. I think you could use Johnsy as a nickname for just John. John would go well with your other kids' names.
