DDCC because I love names!

First of all, there is huge difference in not telling family and friends what you've already decided on
(we aren't either for that reason) and coming out and ASKing for opinions! Would you have them lie?!
At first glance I seriously considered it (and still might, I mean who says middle names out loud?) as we've been looking for the perfect middle name (and DH is in the Coast Guard!
) but I do agree about it looking great on paper but sounding harsh. You know how sometimes there are just words that you HATE? Well "canker" is mine
. It does sort of sound like anger.
I'm not opposed to unique names, actually that's what we prefer. (I named DS Aidan before it was the new 'thing' to do, but I realize its now the new John or Michael. And his middle name is Rayne. People had a fit over that one, it was either love or disgust.)
Good luck in your search! Sometimes I wish they just came out with their names stamped on their butt!
