My problem is DP wants no.2, if it's another boy, to have the same middle name again. I'm kind of against it, and have offered a compromise of his dad's first name. We haven't decided yet, and if he really puts his foot down I suppose I would do it.
Does anyone else have this in their family? I haven't actually heard of any families where kids have the same middle name, and a friend of mine who is no.2 son in their family doesn't have the "passed down gen to gen" middle name, and doesn't care one bit. DP thinks that no.2 would be upset that DS1 got the family name but not him.
Sorry to ramble, but it takes a bit of explaining!! Any thoughts or experience anyone has would be most appreciated.
