We chose Mia Catherine Carys for the girl, It means My Pure Love !
The boy will be Max Everett.
Our other boys are Jacob Caspian, Cameron Cade and Levi Cooper.

Do you think it's weird that Max is the only one without a C middle name ? Would Max Calloway be better ? Is Max getting popular now ? Are Max and Mia to cutsey for twins ?

I love these names but I'm still kind of second guessing them. What do you think ?

I think Mia and Max are lovely as twin names and I love the meaning behind your name for your daughter....I agree that the "E" middle name does look out of place though I think Max Calloway actually flows a lot nicer than Max Everett.
I would personally go with Calloway. =)

I think Mia and Max are cute twin names. I would give Max a C middle name to go with all the other siblings, though.

I agree with others. Max and Mia are a great twin sibset. Yes, they both start with a M and have 3 letters. But, they're different enough in the number of syllables each has and how they are pronounced.

I also agree that Max should have a C middle name as you have four other kids that do.

You asked about the popularity of Max. What people consider "too popular" is relative. Some people are okay if their child's name is not in the top 10, for others, they don't want a name in the top 100, and yet for others, it's the top 1000.

Max is at #126 in popularity for 2008 on the social security administration website (the most accurate indicator of name popularity in the US). Mia is at #14. So, clearly Mia is more popular. But, if you love the names, use them!!!!

I love the names you picked and I agree that Max should have a C middle name as well. Mia and Max are both quite popular but so are your other three son's names. I think all of the names sound great together.

I think Max and Mia is SUCH an adorable twin combo!!!! It's cute, but not over the top "twinsy" if that makes sense. They don't rhyme and it's not too cutesy.

I do think it would bother me that Max won't have a C middle name...especially if Mia will. I like Max Calloway!

Oh and I definitely dont' think Max is becoming popular. I'd actually go as far to say that it might be your least popular name out of your children's...

I know a sibset with a Max and a Mia, and I think its lovely!

I agree that if all the other kiddos have a C middle name that Max should as well. I think Calloway sounds very nice with Max.

We never planned to have the twins' names start the same. Until last week our top boys name was Crew Oliver or Oliver Caven. I'm so afraid people will say that I didn't give them their own identity and stuff like that because they are 3 letters and both start with M. We're trying to keep the name a secret from family so it's nice to know that aren't to cutesy !

I hear Jake and Cam's name so often ! When we had them I never knew the names were that popular ! We want Levis name to be less popular but it's gaining ! I don't think I will ever win with getting a non-common name !

I *don't* think Max needs a C middle name - go with the name you love. When you introduce your children to people, you don't use their middle names. And almost no one is going to look at the complete list of your kids' full names, either. And the majority of people (especially boys/men) will not care that their name doesn't match their siblings. I say go with whichever middle name you like the most!

Max and Mia are adorable. I don't think he needs a C name, if you love Everette go with that. He's never going to introduce himself or his sibling with both his first and middle name anyway

How not thinking about the other kids' names .

Which is better Max Everett or Max Calloway ?

oh and do you think Max can stand on it's own or will we need to use Maxwell ?

Everett and Calloway both are family names so it doesn't matter which one we end up choosing.

I love Max and Mia!!!

Since Mia will have two middle names, maybe you could do Max Everett Calloway or Max Calloway Everett and then he'd have a C middle as well.

Mia Catherine Carys
and
Max Calloway Everett

Max and Mia are adorable together. I would prefer a matching C middle name though I do agree that most people will never know the children's middle names unless you tell them so its not that big of a deal.

Max and Mia are a little cutesy to me but if you like them then go for it. I actually prefer Max Everett over Calloway. I don't think Max is getting too popular, Mia is much more popular.
