Hi all,

We think we have FINALLY decided on a possible boys name (hurrah!):

Miles Alexander ********

The only problem is that our surname is the same as a very large city in Queensland and I am worried that having a measure of distance plus a geographical location might be a bit strange.

Thoughts?

I don't think it would be strange.

Miles Alexander is a great combo original.gif.

I think it should be fine.

Miles Alexander is a fab combination!




* I knew a Miles once who we always referred to as Miles of Smiles.... he was just a very smiley person, I automatically think BIG SMILE when I hear of a Miles now!

Just in case you have not realised - Miles is also a town in QLD.

I was just about to add this.  

I personally think it is a bit too geographical.  Sorry.  
Although, depending on just how well known the surname city is, you could probably get away with it if you live in another state.  If you're living here in QLD it's probably not a good idea.  Sorry sad.gif

Haha, that's my son-in-law's exact name. He's pretty pleased with it. He loves both his names and loves them together.

Re geography I sense you might be looking for things to worry about.

Wouldn't worry me at all.  Go with it.   If it was ever a problem, and I bet it wouldn't be, he could just drop off the surname wink.gif

ohh Miles is such a sweet name for a child but also a name I think can age well into adulthood!

Wouldnt worry about it with the surname at all! original.gif

I keep inserting "to" between the names. I wouldn't do it.
