Okay... I pretty much have the name figured out... But I just wanted some thoughts and feedback on my final choice...

Justin-Alexander Timothy Valentine

Justin-Alexander being a combo 1st name
Timothy the middle name- His Father's 1st name
and of course Valentine is my son's last name...

Is this too long?

I can honsetly let the Timothy go... But...I like the name... I donno...

Honestly? I think they are all great names - but it is a huge mouthful! Maybe you can save one of the names in case you eventually have another baby boy? I know it is sooo hard to pick...our boy name this time was given b/c our baby will be a junior - however, for next time I don't know how we will ever choose!

Try getting that on any standardized form.

Very nice name, but a mouthful.

It is a little long for me and when I read it I read it as Justin being the first and Alexander being a last name- why I don't know. However, I think you should go with whatever you and your dh prefer!

They are all nice names, and I think for a first baby it is common to have a ton of names, even if they are never used except on paper. My dh was a first baby and he has about 4 names besides his first and last names - his younger sister doesn't even have one middle name.

I think that Justin-Alexander as a first name is a bit of a mouthful (maybe Justin-Alex to shorten it a bit?), but as another person said, what's most important is what you and your dh prefer.

It's fairly common here (in the south) for kids (girls at least) to have hyphenated first names. Think Anna - Grace or non hyphenated. I think it's kind of a mouthful, but I do like the way it sounds.
