What do you think of double middle names?

For a girl, I was thinking about using Ella Kate as a middle name because my MIL is Ellie and my mom is Kathleen.

So her name would be Sage Ella Kate, but I'm not sure about the double middle name even though I think it's really pretty.

  • Both of my kids have two middle names. Their middle names are after their grandparents too. My DD is Jillian Diane Elizabeth Johns and my son is Rylee Butler Alan Johns. Yes their names are long but I've never had to put down both middle names. Even in school they only needed to know their first middle name.

    I love the names you have picked out. Very cute!

  • I find them cumbersome and unnecessary.

  • I like it when done well if that makes sense...and I like the names you've chosen....and I think when it means something to someone then it's even better....but there are times when multiple names can be very messy ! in your case, i'm thinking more classy ! nice choice !

  • I like it.. very pretty & it's not too long either,, it's shorter than my kids' names with only one middle name :)
