    Which middle name do you like best ? Help!

    We are having our 3rd gender surprise baby in January and have decided on the name Bode for a boy to go with Crew & Emerson.
    After my previous post and talking with family members I’m undecided on which middle goes best with Bode.

    Both middle names are family names
    Phillips -my dads middle name
    Ransom- my husband and I both have great grandpas with this as their first name!

    Which middle do you like best? What flows better?

    I like that Ransom is on both sides of the family but Bode Phillips is by far my favourite

    Phillips sounds nicer but Ransom is nicer in that it honours both your families.

    The double family connection of Ransom is too good to pass up!

    Ransom is a guilty pleasure of mine, and you’ve got a great reason to use it!

    It’s one of mine too! I absolutely love the name Ransom. I really don’t care, but does the rest of the world think of the negative connotation with the word ransom? I feel like a lot of people don’t know it’s a name!

    Bode Ransom sounds a bit too wordy for my tastes. I prefer Bode Phillips
