    Margaret, "Claire" is the French spelling. "Clare" is an English spelling.

    Stupid dyslexia, and yes, I meant Claire as being the French spelling, brain does not always keep up with my typing, and I actually "see" both spellings as the same, I have to really concentrate on the words to see the different spellings.

    Maybe they are pronounced differently? My sister is Tanya, which is pronounced TON-ya, but some people see the "A" and call her "TAN-ya" (which she hates!) so maybe those parents had a TAN-ya and a TON-ya.

    We came close to giving Weston two middle names, because we couldn't decide between William (a strong family name on both sides) and August (his birth month, it also means great, revered, magnificent.) We didn't have anything against two middle names, but it finally came down to the fact that that would have made his initials WWAP and that just looked silly. And WAP looked almost as silly, so he's Weston William.

    I pretty much don't care what parents name their kids, but I think if you start with a theme, you should see it to the end, kwim? Don't start with Abigail, Brian, and Carl, and then skip to Lisa. There is a family we see at a local park all the time, three little girls with city names like Brooklyn, Paris, London... and a little boy named something very classic like Charles. I feel so bad for little Charles. What was wrong with a nice boyish city name like Lincoln or Trenton or Pierre? I just secretly hope he was named for a recently deceased grandfather.

    Tanya and Tonya are different names to me. Annoying for twins, though!

    I'm late to this party. My husband has 2 middle names (one is French, one is African). He always hated it and when he came to the U.S., he dropped one. I do think it's kind of annoying only because most forms, etc, only accomodate one middle name. But I guess there may be times when there is a good reason for it? Like, wanting to incorporate a family name but if you do you need to use a name from both sides or something??? I would never do it though.

    Totally!! I know someone who had twin boys and named one this totally normal name and the other one is a random, never heard of name. I feel bad for the one with the "unusual" name...at least give both boys an unusual name so they can stick together if they're made fun of!

    My boys have two middle names since we included their birth names into our names....So my youngest is Kellen Gordon Russell and our last name. He came to us as Kellen Russell and we included Gordon for my dh grandfather. My kids like it and it hasn't caused any issues yet.
