A friend of mine is TTC. They have their boy name picked out but are looking for a middle name. They both really like Rayce for a middle name but worry others will hate it.

What are your thoughts? Full name would be Alexander Rayce if it makes any difference. They are just wanting some feedback.
Expecting #3 in January 2016!

Personally, I don't really like Rayce...but I think it's fine as a MN.

I like the sound of it but not the name, itself. I would prefer Jace/Case/Mace.

I'm not a huge fan of Rayce either. But, as a middle name, I don't think it really matters!

Like Alexander but Rayce is a dealbreaker for me.

It doesn't bother me since it's a middle name. People might mistakenly think they heard Grace instead of Rayce at first though.

I don't like Rayce. It just makes me think of Race which is a strange name. I also don't like the back to back R's from Alexander into Rayce.
Thank-you GraysMama for my beautiful siggy!

Meh. If they love it that is good for them. It is just a MN. I certainly don't like it much myself but don't hate it enough to talk anyone out of it.
