    will others swoon over this sib set as much as i do?

    I love both Prosper and Noble, but have mostly kept them as options for middles. But the blog post about boy virtue names included both and makes them seem more useable than i had previously thought.

    Is it too much?
    I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.

    My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.

    It is very Puritan. I think a virtue name theme for middle names would be cool though.

    Love them as middle names and they both have a great feel to them but it might come off as very puritan, for sure.
    The thing that holds me back from using virtue names is that it can kind of give off the opposite effect of the names and sound more... Hmm, pompous? Than virtuous. I mean that kindly, as I also love these names (constant and prosper, as well as true and loyal were ones that I swooned over in that column), but they can seem a bit overbearing. That's why I love them in the middle name, they offer some sense of dignity and importance without declaring it in lights.

    <3 Prosper & Noble! But unfortunately the previous responders have a point about it coming across as pretentious. Also, in my experience adjective names often lead to the opposite effect in their holders, maybe it's just too high of a standard?

    However, I think this would be a perfect middle name duo no matter what your style:

    Timothy Noble & Matthew Prosper (biblical)
    Henry Prosper & William Noble (traditional)
    Hugo Noble & Milo Prosper (trendy O endings)
    Forest Prosper & River Noble (nature)
    Cody Noble & Jesse Prosper (cowboy)

    well, you get the idea!

    Definitely too much. Noble and Prosper are common, everyday words. It's not even on the nose; it's slap you in the face. If you must use a combo of virtue names then choose one that isn't so obvious like:
    Halcyon & Noble
    Prosper & Solace
    Winsome & Prosper
    Noble & Dulcet
