    Holden Young?

    Saying this name aloud makes me hear "holding young", as in I'm turning 55, but I'm holding young! Thoughts?

    Absolutely in love with the name Holden!
    Such a great name, plus it is a literary classic.
    Is Young your last name or the middle name you wish to use?
    It isn't bad...I don't hear what you said...

    Yup, it's our last name! Having a tough time finding names we love which flow well with our last name. I originally thought I wouldn't like the sound of a single syllable first name with our last name, but 3 of my top 6 are 1 syllable! Holden is one of the 2 syllable names we are considering.

    I've never heard the expression "holding young" before. Holden has always sounded silly to me anyway though. I always hear "holdin'."
