    Eh, maybe you guys should just pick a name that is not in use for either family so the other doesn’t feel resentful.

    I think the homeoteleuton of Landon Aaron is too much, so I’m voting for Jeffrey.

    i actually agree with your reasoning, since the kid gets the father’s last name, you should be able to have more influence with the middle name.  if i have a girl, i was actually just telling my DH that i want to give her my mom’s middle name.  have you told your husband your reasoning?   plus i am never a fan of giving the baby a middle name of one of the parents, i feel like it’s too much.  the baby was already created by you, they don’t need your name too.  that’s just my opinion.

    I see you made a decision, so just chiming in to say I agree on all accounts. But if you have a second (and if this one is a boy) you can always do your husband’s name. 

    I like the idea of the middle name being a family name so I think you have a nice compromise.

    Agreed, I see you’ve made a decision, however I was going to suggest if you really can’t use two middle names (why not?) then how about just calling him Landon AJ?

    AJ as a middle name, combining your two wants.

    I vote for whichever one is your father’s name.

    I voted Jeffery and I was hoping that was your dad’s name (mine too!).

    Our daughter’s middle is DHs grandma’s name and our next child will have my grandma’s.

    All our middle names choices come from family. Our first boy has my middle name as his (it was originally a surname so it works) and our second will have DH’s middle name (which so happens to be my FIL’s middle name as well as my grandpa’s first, it’s kind of a classic) as his middle name.

    I voted Jeffrey, because I really don’t like LandON and ArON together. It sounds strange.
