  • I think its so beautiful. But remember, when she grows up she is going to have to sign all of that legally....

  • It seems very complicated and long. I like Abigail Olivia.

  • All my nieces have 2 middle names (so does my hubby. As far as monogrammed things he uses the first middle name.... William Christopher Nelson Hollins ...... WCH it's the same with the girls. His name took up an entire line on the wedding invites....lol The name you chose is beautiful.

  • I have 2 middle names, no one ever uses the second one, even legally. However you only have 16 total spaces for a middle name section on your social security card and there is nothing you can do about that. It sucks, but it looks like you'd be OK. I think it sounds great! :)

  • You'd have to hyphenate - either have a 2 part first name, or 2 part middle name. My 3rd dd has a hyphenated first name. It is beautiful, it is a lot, but I've heard worse!

  • my hubby has two middle names and it is sort of a family thing, so we wanted to keep that tradition. On all of his information he just has to put his first middle name his name is Kalven Blake-Emilio...so everything just says kalven blake....Our daughters name is Maddox Clara-Grace...and stuff we get for her just says Maddox Clara....Don't worry about it...i NEVER even sign my middle name or usually write it...it won't be hard on her...P.S. You will have to hyphenate it...they make you on the birth certificate!!!

  • I love all the names, they are beautiful but it will be way too confusing on a birth certificate, when she learns how to write her name, and pretty much throughout her life. I would only keep two of the names. That's hard though because they are all beautiful. My vote is for Abigail Leighton Pilgrim. Or Leighton Abigail. I really like Leighton, it's different but not weird different and sound very feminine.
