I'm adopting a thirteen year old boy. He has asked me when I adopt him could I not only change his last name to ours, but his middle name as well. His name currently is: Jeffery Flloyd _____
His name after adoption will be Jeffery _____ Woods
Any Ideas, anyone?

My twin girls were 10 when we adopted them and both wanted to change their middle names. I let them pick and they did a great job with it and were very pleased with themselves for picking the perfect name. Autumn Rose and Amber Elizabeth:) They have even earned nicknames due to their new middle names. Rosie girl and Queen Elizabeth respectively ha-ha. I vote for letting your son pick or at least give him several choices if you're not comfortable with letting him pick on his own. Picking a name is a big job and I did let my girls know I would have veto power. Congrats on your new son!
