Exactly - and having a name that rolls off your tongue easily while P/O'd is a good thing. My daughter: Deena Marie. Seriously. Yell that like you're angry. That's what I did while trying to come up with a name. Easy to spell, easy to say, easy to say angrily, and is really cute.

Edit: That, and my daughter's name is a combination of two friends that probably don't even know I used their names.

As a former "Marie" (for my M.I.) I use to get frustrated that it seemed every other girl had my same middle name. It was almost like, that part of me wasn't special, nothin' to talk about I always preferred unique middle names.

Megan Elizabeth
Megan Leaetta (pronounced Lee-Etta)
Megan Jo
Megan Renee
Megan Michelle
Megan Elise
Megan Taylor
Megan Lynette
Megan Sophia

Brian Nathaniel
Brian Patrick
Brian Marcus
Brian James
Brian Benjamin

just a few that first came to mind

goldpolkadots, I was thinking also about how many girls middle names are Marie, or Maria. Its a very popular middle name. Its not my name or my daughters, but I love it. It sounds good with practically any first name. Maybe thats why its used so much? Plus, its a beautiful name. Classic names never go away. Like Marie, Maria, Michael, Matthew, John, Elizabeth.

Names that have the same number of syllables in the first and middle name are typically the harder ones to say and don't 'flow' well. If you are using Brian or Megan, don't us a single syllable middle name and it will sound better. Also, be aware of what the initials spell. If you named a child Brian Aiden and your last name is Douglas, for example, you wouldn't want a child that lives up to his initials BAD.

My younger sister was going to be named Amy Susan until someone pointed out our last name started with an S.

When my first son was born, I was going to name him Megan Hope, if it was a girl.

For my first we used our "2nd choice" name for the middle. So when we had our second child (we didn't find out the sex for either) we were stumped for a boy name. Don't use your second favorite name b/c you might need it later on : )

I guess it is down to personal preference. For our last name, for girls I only like girls name that end in an "a" sound. Ana, Emma, Hannah, Linda etc..
