Middle name opinion

We have decided 100% to name our little man Henry Allen. I am debating now on whether to incorporate a second middle name. This is for sure our last and our only boy. I want to honor as many significant male family members as posssible.
What are your thoughts on two middle names?
Opinions on order/flow? Allen has to stay but can either come first or second for a middle name. Possible pairings would be Harold, John, or William.
All opinions welcome and very much appreciated!

Thanks!!!

Re: Middle name opinion

  • If the names are really meaningful, then go for it!

    Henry William Allen
    Henry John Allen

    Those are my favorite of flow. Personally I think Harold is too much.

    Congrats on your little boy!!

  • I don't like double middle names. Is there anyone else in your family who might honor the other relatives? Like if you want to honor your grandfather, maybe a sibling or cousin will use it? I know you can't bet on who would use what, but unless you're the only descendent having kids you shouldn't feel like you have to fit in everyone.
  • Henry Allen John still flows well..I like it

    This exactly. Also, Henry and Harold seem too similar to me to be used together.
    It's a boy! Born 42 weeks, 2 days.
