Too many names?

Just wondered what people feel about long names ie more than one middle name? do you think its cruel if you give you little one lots of names or does it give them choice of names in the future?

well my hubby has 3 middle names, so does my sister. they are after people in the family. i dont see this as a problem, its not like people call them by their full names. xx

My boys have long names and people keep trying to make me feel guilty.. the whole they wont be able to spell their full name by the time they go to school (they are only 9 weeks!) and family keep saying they will get bullied. but surly children get bullied for anything and nothing, do you think that by giving them long names they will get bullied more?

my litle girl's middle name is Elizabeth-May. Its up to u. alot of the time the middle names arent used apart from to fill out forms etc. If u have several names that mean a lot to you then i dont see any harm in it i dont think u are being cruel

i think if the names are special to you it doesnt matter what people think, having said that what about people who name there kids after every member of there fav football/rugby etc team! now that is not cool and what kind of mothers would let there oh do that!

Stupid names or long names or whatever, its really nobody elses business is it? Doublebubble should not be made to feel bad; she can give her boys 10 names each if she wants as its her choice and they wont be any worse for the wear.

hi my friend has 4 kids all with double barrel first names a middle name and then a double barrel surname!I dont think it really matters!

Hiya - I cannot see why any child would get bullied for this - unless of course all the initials spelt something daft! Name them what you are comfortable with. They won't know difference and will choose what name(s) they go by when they are older.

My little boys full name is Jake David Thomas Richard Archie Wilkins, his middle names are after his great grandads who he will never meet. The only prob I have is when I have to fill out any forms for him that ask for his full name, cause it doesn't fit! They nameist!x

thanks you have all made me feel like i have done the right thing, all there middle names (they each have two middle names and a double barrelled surname) mean something to us, they are from people that meant something to us and that they will never meet..
Suzai i have the same problem never enough space and people keep saying 'well just leave one of the names out' rude and cheeky sods xx

i have no middle names and always wanted at least one! I think its a personal choice, we have picked names already (not that i am pg yet) and they have middle names, i think its lovely, especially if they have a specific meaning, like the name of a relative.

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
