  • Last one, yeah. After 8 or 10 letters it just gets ridiculous IMO.

  • I dont think that any name is too long, My boys have very long names.. here is one of them.. Rowan-Liam Daley Welsh. If you are happy with the name that you have selected the that is all that really matters

  • They just look a little long spelled out. When you actually say them they aren't bad. They might take them a little longer to spell on their own if they're young though lol

  • I think the last 3 are too long! take it from someone who had to spell Nikkolette in kindergarten. Think about your poor kiddo when naming them, the longer the name the harder to spell, the harder for others to say and the harder it is for them to live with. They are beautiful don't get me wrong but maybe too much for a kiddo

  • Trevino is kind of cute. Chancellor is ok (Chance would be an easy nick name). As for the other two, just don't.

  • Way too long and jumbled! Those names are crazy. No one will ever be able to pronounce them!

  • Too long, too complicated, too much. This poor child is going to have to say & spell his name for every person he meets for the rest of his life.

  • Trevino and Chancellor are fine, the others are confusing.

  • They are long, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't use them. I mean, if you are wanting to call the child by their given name and not a nickname, the length may be a problem. But if you plan on shortening it to a nickname for everyday use, it shouldn't be a problem. As long as you pick much shorter middle names, you should be fine.

  • Trevino and Chancellor are ok. The other two are just ridiculous. Don't bother voting me down, I don't care.
