So we're changing Dd's last name sometime soon. Right now she just has her papa's (I have my own and won't change it if we get married). We want to give her mine as well so she'll have a double last name. We can't agree on which combination sounds better.
1- McClain Patton
2- Patton McClain
Any thoughts. It dosen't make a difference who's name is who's to us so I didn't mention it. Thanks!

definitely #2

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
