DH feels that we can choose whatever first name we want for our future children, but that the middle names we pick need to be established already within our families.

I understand (and agree with) this tradition, but he and I both like names that are a bit more unusual... Our family is names like Marie, Anne, Lynn, Rose, (and for the boys) John, James, Paul, Robert, Richard, and Joseph. All of them are great names, but kind of common, especially as middle names. My middle name is Marie, and I feel like half of all women I know can say the same.

How do you guys feel about this tradition? Should we choose a family name even though they're all commonly used?
