    Okay, so, I've chosen a first name which I really love and seem to be sticking with (Wolfgang). I would like to choose a middle name to go with it. I asked me friends for suggestions and got:
    -Amadeus
    -My dad's name (this isn't really something we do in my family, we all have individual names).

    I figured you guys might be a bit more helpful. These are some of the names I've been thinking of:
    -Valentino (if you look at the day I was born on, you'll see why)
    -Claude (I like how it sounds, and honours a distant relative, but it would make my first initials W.C-- is that a problem?)
    -Nigel (is this a good way of showing how British I am, or does it conjour up images of drunk racists?)
    -Philip (my middle name at birth is Elizabeth, so I could go from the Queen to her husband)

    Which of these do you like, or do you have any other suggestions? I'd like something that goes with Wolfgang and is fairly unusual as most of my family have rare names.

    :grin: Gregory happens to be my best friend's name, so I don't know if that makes it a better or worse choice really.
