    Rennon is interesting...and I will have to look up the Portugese connection to Renan. Thanks!

    No criteria for middles other than they should have a good flow. Would be nice to sneak David or a form of David in there somewhere, but not necessary.

    I REALLY like Renan and the nn Ren! If you were comfortable in going straight to Ren I think it's a name that can stand on it's own. I would say it ren-ahn but if you choose to pronounce it another way I don't think it would be a big deal. You just have to introduce him that way and, done. Without knowing how many syllables in your last name, or your preferences in names some suggestions for a middle....

    If I were you I would go for Renan, it sounds better than the other names even though it is a variation!

    I do like just Ren a lot, but would like something a little longer if it's going to be the first name. These middles are GREAT! I love Silas, Davis, and Jasper.

    I would instinctively pronounce them REE-nan and ree-NON, but what do I know? I would personally be hesitant about giving a child a name from a different culture that I wasn't sure how to pronounce. Have you considered just using Ren? Also, Lawrence or Laurence could be shortened to Ren, but looking at your signature that doesn't seem like your style.
