    Since it’s a middle name and not a first name, and you like the middle name, and it flows well with the first name, I think I would be inclined to use the family name.

    I go with whichever you like better (which sounds like the “random” non-family name).

    While it is nice to use a family name if you both really like it, I wouldn’t use one over another name that we liked better.

    ETA: My sister and I both have “random” middle names that our parents happened to like and we really like them too.  I don’t “miss” not having a family tie to my middle name.

    My mom’s middle name is a random name my grandma liked, and she hates it. I’d go with the family name.
