Okay, I'm 37 weeks 5 days along, we don't know if it's a boy or a girl, and both DH and I, given our feelings about the current political situation, are starting to have issues about the boy's name we picked out back in February:
George Herbert Gooding
Gooding will be the kid's last name.
Please don't laugh! We both grew up with *favorite* grandpas. These grandpas were incredibly special to both of us. Mine was named George, his was named Herbert.
Unfortunately, we're rabid left wing types, and well, with a name like George Herbert, people might get the wrong idea about us and the kid. I know that most people won't know the kid's middle name, but it will be on all school records and stuff. It just seems like an unfair burden to place on the kid.
So, we were thinking about adding another name, like so:
George Bradley Herbert Gooding
Something to break up the "George" and the "Herbert."
DH thinks it might be too many names for the kid, but we should at least try. I am so open to suggestions - anyone got any ideas for a good name to stick in there?
Also, have any of you had a problem with a kid having too many names? DH said this could be confusing for the kid.
Thanks, I look forward to your feedback!
