    My daughter is 3-2-2 and my son will be 2-2-2. I really think it depends on the names and where the emphasis/accent is on the syllables.

    I've read that first name, middle name, and last name should all have different numbers of syllables, for example 3-1-2 or 2-3-1. The exception, in my opinion, is 2-2-2, which usually seems to work. But I agree with pp's in that the sounds and accents of the names are more important for the flow than the actual number of syllables.

    Mae West sounds fine 1-1. So does Faith Hill. Or James Dean, John Brown, Hugh Grant...?

    It really depends on what the names are.

    But I like a lot of long first names so I would probably take the chance to balance out the last name with a 3-4 syllable first.

    I have a 3 syllable last name and I'm not sure 3-3 or 4-3 works all that well. Though there are some combos I rather like. I just would not, for either of us, go 1-1-1 or 3-3-3, but rather pop either a long one in the middle for you or a short one in the middle for me.
