I usually go with shorter names but I find myself looking at longer names this time around like Felicity, Sylvia, etc.

BUT I find myself wanting to pair longer names with longer middle names!

Tallulah Evangeline
Felicity Cordelia

is it too much?

I love, Felicity Cordelia! But as you mentioned, it does sound a bit of a mouthful.

How about, Felicity Cora?

It doesn't seem like that much of a mouthful to me, I think they flow decently together. =)

I don't think a 7-syllable name is too long....unless you also have a long last name?

The name combos sound just fine together.

I dont' like Tallulah at all because when i hear of it I think of that joke name "Tallulah does the hula in hawaii"

I like long first names because our last name is a 1 syllable last name..... I think the last name has a bit more to do with it then what you match a middle name with.. I find middle names are usually only ever used when kids are in trouble so... depends how you feel about yelling two long names hehe

When I was pregnant with Lauren, we'd considered Ariadne Alexandria with a three syllable last name.. so 12 syllables total. Didn't really bother me that it was long.

I actually like all four names, especially Tallulah, but I think you're right...I think they're a bit of a mouthful.

I think that unless you have an exceptionally long name, they sound fine!
