    I think having the two part first name is just fine, especially since they are both pretty short.  It’s not as if you are trying to call her Alexandria Jeannemarie or something lol.  I have seen people do 2 names with a – in the middle (Hattie-Jean) but also just the two names.  I think it gives lots of nickname potential.  If your child feels her name is too long when she’s old enough to decide, she can just go by Hattie or Jean or HJ.  I think it’s cute 🙂  Also nice traditional aspect since you have a 2 part name.

    I voted Hattie Jean Thomas since I think two middle names is too many, BUT I prefer Hattie Marie Thomas. 


    PS LOVE Hattie, it is on my list 🙂

    @cora_123:  Sorry, when I originally replied I didn’t read that you want to call her by both names! Hmm, I think if you want people to call her Hattie Jean, giving her another middle name wouldn’t change whether they do or not. I know an 11-year-old girl named Sarah Rose, and she gets called both Sarah and Sarah Rose. I asked her which she prefers and she said she doesn’t care. I don’t know if she has another middle name, but I don’t think so. I think if you want people to call her Hattie Jean, they will if you will and if she introduces herself this way. 


    PS I see your user name is Cora and I love that name, too!
