which do you prefer - long names or short names?

I like short - my last name is a doozy

I should clarify - long being three syllables or more, short being two syllables or under!

I like short names for my kids. I can't say why really, I'm just drawn to them, particularly 4 letter names.

I think it depends on the last name. The "Jane Doe" type of short-short names don't appeal to me, nor do the "Esmeralda Dinglehoffer" types. I think I like the combo of a long and a short, in either order.
