ive sooooo badly wanted to name my baby after my step father, Michael Trent. if a girl i wanted the name Trinity Michaela. and for a boy I wanted Trenton Michael. Once we found out we are having a boy, I didnt feel like the name Trenton fit. after a lot of thinking SO and I considered the name Michael Thomas. Thomas being my SOs middle name. but after a while i was hearing the name Michael SOOOOO much I couldnt stand it anymore as a first name, and dont like the name Thomas enough to use Thomas Michael! anyways we have decided on the name Rylan Thomas but Im still not satisfied. I want my dads name in there somehow! Im thinking of Rylan Michael Thomas but thats kind of a mouth full, isnt it?

also i see a lot of people who use two middle names use a -. When are those appropriate? (not that im thinking of using one. i think the name looks long enough as it is without one. im just curious.)

My sons name is Logan Matthew Brian. Matthew because its my husbands middle name and Brian because it was my dads middle name. I didn't have a - in it.  And i like the name Rylan Michael Thomas :)

we were gonna name out son Rylan Michael! So, I think it's a wonderful name. We're naming him August Michael now. Yes, Michael is a common name but the names runs in the fathers family.

I dont yet know the gender of my unborn, but if I have a boy, his name will be Thomas Danger Durst (+ last name). I'd love to have a son who can flirt with the ladies and say "Danger is my middle name!"---and mean it. LOL I have a deep attachment to the name Thomas, and Durst is my maiden name...my 5-year old son also has the middle name "Durst". I dont worry about the mouth-full name my son would get, cause its a good name.
