More Than One Middle Name?
Wed, 12-26-2012 - 10:48am

Talk about an early Christmas present: On Monday, December 17th, Homeland actress Claire Danes and hubby Hugh Dancy welcomed their baby boy, Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy!

Danes and Dancy kept their baby's gender a secret, so we couldn't speculate on names, but now that we know it, we think their choice is the perfect blend of cool and classic. We love the unique, hipster-ish Cyrus which we think is kind of the boy of version of a granny-chic name -- especially when paired with not one, but two classic middle names.

What do you think about giving baby more than one middle name?

This is something we are considering actually.  We want baby's middle name to be a family name, and if we selected two names, we could honor both sides of the family.  We have not decided for sure yet, but it is something we are kicking around.

I have two middle names myself. Usually, you're still limited to just one initial when filling out paperwork (like for a credit card, job application, etc) so I always skip listing a middle initial. But, I love having two. It's very cool I think and I've always liked that about my name. For what it's worth...
