    I would put it as his middle name … Bc most middle names are different and he won’t be teased about it 🙂

    I just wanted to weigh in on the last part of your second question. I have a very unusual name-I’ve met about 5 people (outside of family) who have ever heard it. There are common names that are close to my name, but pronounced and spelled differently. Growing up, I hated my name. It sucked to not have anyone understand what you said when you introduced yourself. My whole life I’ve had to say my name, then spell it because people think they heard wrong, and often, I even have write it for people. The weird thing is, it is only 6 letters and spelled exactly how it is pronounced, but people assume they couldn’t have heard it correctly. All that to say, at almost 30, I’m okay with having an unusual name. It fits me and my free-spirited personality. But, I seriously considered changing my name even as an adult because it can be very frustrating. So, I voted for James Kenzo. You could call him Kenzo, but that way if he is frustrated by it and wants to go by James it would be less hassle for him to do so.

    I think James Kenzo would be best. He can always choose to go by the name Kenzo if he wishes. I would let him make that decision though.

    I really like Kenzo and hardly think he’d be teased about it. I love James, as well, but it is more common. I think you could go either way with the name placement.

    I picked James Kenzo. I think @smores:  summed up how I would have answered nicely.

    I think James Kenzo flows way better, especially when I stick a variety of different 1-syllable last names with it.

    I think Kenzo James flows better. BUT I think it is very uncommon, so James Kenzo might be a better way to go. Either one sounds good though, so it definitely comes down to what you and your husband think.

    Also, guys sometimes give each other cool knicknames, so he might become “Kenz” or “Zo” or something like that, other than Kenny.

    I think James Kenzo flows better and yes, I do believe he will be teased if his first name is Kenzo (sorry).

    If you are going to call him Kenzo, name him Kenzo James.

    I like James Kenzo better. I think unique unusal names are better for middle names. He could always go by Kenzo when he is younger and then choose whether to go by Kenzo or James later in life.

    I think Kenzo James sounds better, as it ends with a vowel- which leads into James. And I do not think Kenzo would be a name that others would make fun of, since it sounds more masculine. I think his little friends would be jealous instead 😉
