    I don't think it really matters how name middle names you have. I was reading some of the Australian birth announcements and it's a mixture of both 2 mn and 1 mn. I suppose generally people from wealthier backgrounds tend to use 2 or more mn's.

    I think two middle names is fine! I know a lot of people who have 2. My parents went a little over board with my siblings and I, we each have 3 middle names! I think as long as the names sound good together and you have one last name (we had two! That's a whole lot of names!) it should be fine!

    We plan on using two middles, as there's some history of that on both sides; and, more importantly, we'd really like to honour as many people as possible. Plus, I much prefer the 'flow' of it. I think any British class associations are fairly irrelevant, I'm strongly against the notion of anyone needing to know their place, I'd much rather everyone just do what they fancy doing; for us, that's two middles.

    I'd probably rethink that if we had a very long or double-barrelled surname, though. & for ease, we'll probably only use one mn for everyday paperwork.

    @ottilie, yeah I have no idea in the US. my best friend growing up had 2 middle names and I just thought her parents were weird, lol.

    I know that Cytherea is the more common transcription, but in my strange little mind Cytheria makes it easier to figure out how to pronounce, and I love the -ia ending. (also the quite-famous porn star spells her name with the -ea ending. Maybe that's my true aversion, haha).

    I have two middle names. For us it's a family tradition but my cousin decided to go against it and give her son only one.
    I think it should be up to you.
