It kind of sounds like ‘flaming brooks’ which to me is fricking awesome. 😀 I don’t think it’s too long, but that’s just me.

I think double barrelled names work best when they’re different syllable lengths so yours would be good! Mine would be 2 syllable – 2 syllable and it just doesn’t sound as good to me 🙁

I don’t think they sound that good together.  Could you take Fleming as a middle name and then be able to use your full name,  but still have Brookes as your surname?

Regardless – if you like it, double barrel your name.  You’re the one who has to live with it, not any of us.
