    Thanks for the feedback. They're expecting twins. I love their son's prospective name of Duncan Frederick Weld. It feels so chic. It seems more challenging perhaps.

    I couldn't explain to my friends why their prospective daughter's name didn't work out. It seems to follow the supposed rules. I hear celebrity + car + verb. Despite the differing styles, it does have family and ethnic significance. I'm also unsure about the likely nickname Gwen Weld. Although there's only two, it seems like a lot of W. I'm unsure how I should advise them when it comes to nicknames.

    Gwyneth is Anglo/Welsh, Mercedes Spanish...the styles don't blend well.

    Duncan Frederick is lovely! Gwyneth Mercedes is.....confusing.

    I agree with most of the posters above, stylistically it doesn't fit. And Gwen Weld is a challenge as well! Gweny/Gwenie are the only other nicknames I can think of for Gwyneth! Such a beautiful name on it's own though, just maybe not with their surname (or the middle name they've chosen).

    It doesn't flow perfectly, but if there is special significance behind their choices I think it's fine. Gwyneth and Mercedes are both nice names. Not ridiculous or made up or too out there. I'd leave it alone.

    Neither of the names are my style at all, but I think it flows nicely.
