    Gamaliel and Cornelius, First or middle names?

    Hi all,

    Gamaliel (Gam-ay-li-el) and Cornelius are both family names and I'm deciding whether I like them better as first or middle names.

    *Cameron is a middle name*

    The combos would be:

    Fraser Cornelius Cameron
    Cornelius Fraser Cameron

    Lewis Gamaliel Cameron
    Gamaliel Lewis Cameron

    Wilfred Gamaliel Cameron
    Gamaliel Wilfred Cameron

    Wilfred Cornelius Cameron
    Cornelius Wilfred Cameron

    What do you like best?

    I actually know a first name Cornelius! He’s known as Conor sometimes.

    Personally, I’d put both in the middle spot, but that’s entirely a matter of taste. Nothing wrong with either of them as a first, although Cornelius feels a touch more wearable because of the easy nickname potentially.

    I love Fraser Cornelius Cameron! Great flow and really fun and unexpected.

    Gamaliel would be strictly a middle name in my mind.

    I normally suggest family names go in the middle, bit honestly I really like Cornelius Fraser Cameron! Cornelius Wilfred Cameron works well top though I prefer the combo with Fraser.
