Would your DH consider a double middle name? Im usually not a fan but I think if your H won't let go of Christopher so you can honor your late brother I think you should consider a double MN. He should also keep in mind that both kids have his last name already or at least I assume. I think Jeffrey would be fine as a MN for a girl...I think anything goes for the MN spot.nbsp;
This is a great idea! My daughter has a double middle name. I too am not a fan of it "just because", but it means a lot to us.
Charlotte was adopted and she had a different name at birth, first and middle. We chose Charlotte because I had a dream it was her name, and Claire is her first middle name because it is DH's favorite girl name. We kept her original middle name as her second middle name, so now she has a name chosen by mommy, daddy, and her birthparents.
