    Daniel Elliot Porter?

    Hi!

    I've been thinking today about my top boy name, Daniel Elliot. I have also be thinking that my surname Porter will run out when I get married. Unless my cousin Kathryn changes her surname to Porter-whateverherhusbandssurname there will be no more Porters and I think this is sad. I was wondering if maybe I could add Porter as a second middle name to Daniel Elliot.
    I don't know if Daniel Elliot Porter Whatever would be right.
    What do you think?
    Thanks,
    Ellie xx

    I think it sounds good, and I was in the same situation when I had my son last year (family name ending with me). I wanted to do 2 middles to include my last name, but I felt it would ultimately get lost. So I ended up going with the hyphenated last name for my son. I don't love hyphenated names, but our names sound good together and this way both families are represented.

    Anyway, I think Daniel Elliot Porter sounds nice!

    I think adding your maiden name as a mn for a son is a really nice idea.
    My SO and his sister both have his mothers maiden-name as a mn and it's kinda cool.

    I would probably put Porter in second place -> Daniel Porter Elliot. It seems to have a nicer flow. the -el El- of Daniel Elliot feels a bit awkward to say and I can see the name turning into Danielliot.

    I suggest using Daniel Elliot (though I prefer Elliot Daniel) and keeping your own name.

    Matilda Sailor or Faye Matilda | Sylvie Winifred or Simon Atlas | Atlas Dov or Alice Violetta | Lucien Wilde or Lucinda Jane | Jane Lucinda or Jack Mariner | Marlowe Charles or Roscoe Thomas | Charles ' Charlie' Wallace or Marigold 'Maggie' Wynn | Eloise Lily or Elliot Darwin | Iris Cordelia or Thea Marina | Jasper Augustus or Juniper 'June' Lovelace | Julian Felix or Judah 'Jude' Reeve
