While I don't love the Zoe in there (the rhythm isn't right for me,) I think Alice-Sophia is fine.

I don't think that Alice-Sophia is too long.

Coincidentally, part of the reason I love the name Alice-Sophia is because it runs together well. If it wouldn't look like a spelling hodge podge I would make it one name instead of a hyphenated one. The Zoe is in there as a concession to my husband. He loves the name, I'm not crazy about it, but it was the only super short middle name I could think of. I didn't want anything insanely long in the middle with an already lengthy first name.

hello!! so i love the boys name, even though as a rule i dont like flynn. i love it paired with broderick-its a good strong name. im not loving alice...i like alicia-sophia better. i also like alexa-sophia...BUT-if you love the name alice-sophia-go for it. not one person in my family liked my oldest dds name-violet rose. most of my friends didnt like it either-until she was born. and then they couldnt imagine her as anything else. so if you love a name and others dont-go for it anyway...take care!!

I think it is lovely. Many people use three names. True, traditionally I think most in US use only two, but there are no rules sayiing otherwise that I know of ;) What would you call her? My friend is "Maria Regina Victoria". She goes by Regina, and only ever uses "Maria" on legal documents.

I would call her Alice Sophia, not sure if I could convince hubby to or not. He sounds a little unsure.
