The question asked was do I think it is "too much", so my personal feelings on the names are irrelevant. (For the record, I quite like Bear as a nickname when he is little, but Burleigh is all adjective) I would say yes, I think the combination suggested is too much. I personally would love and prefer Seamus Bear, but bear in mind (sorry, couldn't help it!) that your son is not going to be a baby/toddler all his life - Grandpa Bear is sweet, but portly, middle-aged man called Seamus Bear? Not so sweet. Good luck with finding 'the one' - your name list is fab, so I'm sure you won't have any trouble apart from deciding between them!

I agree with you about her asking for an opinion, but people completely jumped down on her hard over a name that she's not really sure about in the first place. I have a very strange taste in names that most people would run away from, but no one has ever gotten nasty with me before. Definitely not like this. I feel like I should apologize too just for all these replies. Another thing, YOU DO NOT ridicule someone's kid like people have done. I think Maeby is adorable and if others don't like it, keep it to yourself. She didn't want anybody's opinion on her daughter's name.
I do agree that Burleigh Bear is too much and I get the same feel that you're describing a husky/fat bear. I like Burleigh and I like Bear, but not together. I also love Atticus from her list. Very handsome name. Atticus Bear would be awesome. (:
Again, I apologize for everyone getting so rude. Most berries are very supportive and friendly. I hope this thread doesn't make you stray away from Name Berry completely. I hope you find your perfect name!!Currently searching for that perfect name...

For those that have suggested two middles...ie Seamus Linden Bear etc. Is there a forum that discusses 2 middles. I have never done that for any of my other kiddos but since this is the last and we rarely agree on boy names or have a million final choices it might be necessary to have more than one middle. THANKS!
