How Many Names Does Your Child Have?

Whether you give your baby one moniker a la Madonna or four like her daughter, Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon, they'll eventually have to spell them all. Forty-seven percent of lilsugar readers said nay to the notion that multiple names (specifically foursomes) were trendy.

We're curious how many your kids have first, middle and last combined?

I don't have any children yet, but when I do they will have four names in total. One first name a middle name, my maiden name and a last name. I feel like its important for my children to have my last name as part of their name.

My son only has three Seth Alexander and last name. My daughter on the other hand has 4. In order for me to get the name that I wanted I had to add a second middle lane. So she was named Peyton Olivia Giage and last name

My son legally has 5 names. First,2 middle and 2 last names hyphenated. I'm planning to change it so he only has 4 names next month. His initials will legally spell MARS after the change.

My kids have 3 names that they use socially, however legally, they have 2 middle names. They have one "regular" middle name, after a family member, and then they have a family last name as their second middle name. My husband was born with 5 names, and he is Catholic, so he ended up with 6 (counting Confirmation name). We aren't raising our kids Catholic, so they don't have to worry about having any more than 4 names each.

My son has 4 names because I wanted him to have my maiden name. I am part of him and I wanted my name to reflect that in writing.

My children have 4 names, including their surname. Their initials also spell out the first part of their first name... ex. Steven Tyler Emerson Vineyard = STEV (<-- that's just an example though! Not my son's name :P ) My daughter's spells out her nickname.

my son's middle name should also be his first...'Atlas' being his American name, Tae(pronounced 'te' as in 'ted')-Min his Korean name. I wanted to give him another (middle) name, but my mom complained how it would be to hard for her and the other elders to remember and pronounce another western name! LOL. They really have a hard time saying Atlas... "At-tle-las." Haha oops!

my best friend has 6 names. She's hawaiian and also has a hyphenated last name though. Her name has like 43 letter in it. I don't think anyone can beat that haha

Our son will have a first, middle, and last Our daughter might have first, middle, middle, and last -- but we might also drop the first and just have the two middle ones as first and middle. Their last names *might* be hyphenated, but we really aren't sure yet. Also, I'd love to use my maiden name as one of the kid's middle names if we don't hyphenate, but my last name does not sound good for that.
