I love Otto! Not sure about Maximillian though, bit of a mouthful. We have Otto on our list with Leonard as a mn.
Otto Leonard. Leonard is a family name. Are your mn's family names?
I think th other three all work nicely, I think choose your favorite first name and go with that!

Hugh Zachariah - it's nice. I'm not crazy about Zachariah
Declan Thomas - both nice names, think I would prefer Thomas Declan
William Theodore - easily the best of the bunch, I love this.
Otto Maximillian - very cool. has a slightly different feel to William Theodore, but I still like it.

Hugh Zachariah - LOVE
Declan Thomas - dislike
William Theodore - like but dont love
Otto Maximillian - I LOVE the Otto part but not the Maximiilan part.

I think Otto Zachariah is a better combo (and the winner wink.gif )

I like Hugh, Thomas and William, dislike Declan, Zacharian and Otto, and really really really dislike Maximillian and Theodore - which means that I don't like both names in any of your combinations.

If I had to choose, I would choose Hugh Zachariah.

But if I could mix them up, I would much prefer:

William Hugh
Hugh William
William Thomas
Thomas Hugh

Hugh Zachariah - love Hugh, not Zachariah. Hugh Maximillian?
Declan Thomas - ok, prefer Thomas to Declan
William Theodore - lovely
Otto Maximillian - it works, I'm just not real keen on Otto.

I think they all work as combos, I'm just not keen on all the names individually. As MN's are not really noticed too much my favourite would be based on first name, so Hugh Zachariah, 2nd William Theodore.

The others are all fine but Otto Maximillian is a stunner.   Fantabulous!

Out of your list I like : Zac instead of Zachariah, Declan, Thomas and William. Not a fan of Otto or Maximillan like Max though as for Hugh I can take or leave

Declan Thomas is my favourite. Otto Maximillian sounds OTT to me.

I hadn't thought of that one, I like it, thanks.

I always find Hugh a really difficult name to say as it doesn't really seem to have any distinct sounds to it. Not a fan of Zachariah either but all the others I like, especially Otto (it was my boy's fantasy name ) but not too keen on Maximillian. I prefer Otto Theodore from your list.

#15 schnookaberg

I like Declan Thomas and prefer Otto Maxwell to maxmilliam. William Theodore would make me think of Bill & Ted's excellent adventure.

#16 WithSprinkles

Posted 15 February 2013 - 08:13 AM

Hugh Zachariah - like this a lot (though would avoid the name Hugh if child is likely to be overweight)
Declan Thomas - love the name Thomas, don't like Declan
William Theodore - like this, but prefer William with Thomas (for some reason the name Theodore doesn't grab me..it really does sound like one of those "nerdy" names to me)
Otto Maximillian - not a fan

I like Zachariah Thomas as a combo.

Going by my other children, highly unlikely.

Otto Maximillian is my favourite. The others are all good, but not as interesting.

#19 CleverChook

Posted 15 February 2013 - 04:34 PM

Hugh Zachariah - I love Hugh, but not a fan of Zachariah (would like Hugh Zachary a lot though)

Declan Thomas - I've always loved Declan, and Thomas is a fine name if a little dull.  I'd love Declan Theodore.

William Theodore - Fine, but I don't love William

Otto Maximillian  - Nice, but a little bit over the top for my tastes.

So although I know they weren't combos you listed but I love Hugh Zachary or Declan Theodore. wub.gif
