Emotional Name Baggage
I have four names, and have always loved it. My second middle name is my mom's last name (she didn't change her name when my parents got married). I really value this connection with her side of the family. I'm recently married and also kept my last name, in part because I felt like I already have all the names I can manage!
Meanwhile, my husband has the more typical three names, but goes by his middle name. This has caused a lot of headaches and misunderstandings over the years.
We are bringing all these experiences to the baby naming table! I think everyone should have four names, like me, and he thinks middle names should stay in the middle.
Curious about what other name-related emotional baggage people are bringing into their baby naming (or general name collecting)!
