Opinion on a Boy Name

My boyfriend likes the name Bond. I do not. However, I have two children from my first marriage. This is his first child, so even though I'm not crazy about the name, I'm willing to go with it. I get to choose the middle name though and that is probably what he will go by. So, two questions....

1) what do you think of the name Bond?
2) what middle name would go with Bond Hosterman?

Here are a few names I like...

Bond Liam Hosterman
Bond Van Hosterman
Bond Alexander Hosterman
Bond Lucas Hosterman

All opinions and suggestions welcome!

bond van sounds russian lol! i like bond alexander. that way, he can also use his middle name for a nickname if he doesnt like to go by his first name. if that happens, dont be offended! some kids are just picky or especially sensitive to criticism.

my partner goes by his middle name because he was named after an uncle who turned out to be a real piece of trash. who knows. its good to have a useable middle name!

Do NOT like the name Bond.  If I had to pick from that list I'd say Bond Alexander.

Not Van.  People who see all three names will assume his last name is Van Hosterman.

I'd pick this one too. I don't care for the name bond but if you can't talk him out of it, this one isn't too bad. Bond Van H. Sounds great BUT van isn't part of your last name so to me it shouldn't be given as a separate middle name. If your name was actually VanHosterman bond would sound great as a first name.

IMO I can't stand the name bond...but if I had to choose from the 4 I would say Bond Van Hosterman

Why not just use Bond as the middle name if the name you choose will be what he ends up being called anyway? It's such a PITA to go by something that isn't your legal first name.

Ok I am gonna be honest here (I hope you dont take offense) Bond is AWFUL, I mean really! I would definately talk him out of it! If I had to pic one of the four names...I would reluctantly go with Bond Alexander Hosterman! Good Luck, I hope he changes his mind!!
