    Fantastic advice.

    Am I correct to assume that Churchill is in honor of Winston Churchill? (You know what they say about assumptions. ) If so, perhaps it'd be better to just use Winston. I think Winston works with David in the middle and is still more distinctive than William.

    Mr. Fry: So, what should we name him?
    Mrs. Fry: Uh, you pick. I picked dinner last night.
    Mr. Fry: Well, I was thinking of Philip. After those screwdrivers?
    Mrs. Fry: That's a great idea! More morphine, please.

    Churchill would be better in the middle spot because some surnames just don't work as first names. What's wrong with Winston as a first name? Lincoln, Calvin and Winston would be a fine trio. There is also Randolph and Spencer which are Churchill family names.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    William David is lovely!

    Winston David would also work well to honor Churchill. And is a bit more unusual so it fits nicely with Lincoln and Calvin.
    I agree with the others that Churchill is a bit much as a first name.

    I agree that Winston would be fantastic! If not, I would go with William David. Imagine a little boy going through life as Churchill.
