    Just commenting to say it’s the first time I’ve heard the name Aldina, and wow, what a gorgeous and unique name! Why isn’t that coming back with all the Sophias and Olivias?

    I vote for Holly Marie Aldina! Both my brothers and I have 2 middle names. My Darling Husband isn’t too enthused about the idea but I’d love our kids to have two middles too.

    wineplease:  I’ll through this is – DH’s family tradition is that the first son of the first son has the same middle name.

    DH’s dad’s middle name is Christopher, his grandfather’s middle name is Christopher and DH’s middle name is Christopher.  When his brother (younger…) had a son he was given the middle name Christopher…Darling Husband was PISSED.  He would never say anything to his brother but he was really hurt, he felt like something was ‘stolen’ – even though we aren’t ttc at the moment (and definitely weren’t 9 years ago!)

    If you’re going to use your sister’s middle name – I’d talk to her about it first.

    All that said – I like Aldina 🙂

    I vote Aldina, it is unique and has family sentiment. My middle name is Anissa (Ah-knee-sa) and I love it no one has it that I know of and its always fun to get compliemented on it. 🙂

    I voted Aldina because Holly Marie reminds me ‘Holy Mary!’ when I took my first glance..

    I like Holly Marie, but I’m biased because it’s my middle name. And it does flow well.

    I imagine Marie is a less common middle name now than 25ish years ago, but I like having a common middle name. When I find out someone else’s middle name is Marie, it’s like cool me too, and it’s a nice little bonding experience.

    I do have a fairly unique first name though and I like that, one time I found a website that said there were 6 girls with my first and middle name born in California in 1990.

    I love Holly Aldina. I don’t think there are too many L’s unless you intend to regularly call her by both names. I think you can rarely go wrong with a family name, and in this case, since the rest of his family isn’t sentimental, it doesn’t seem like anyone else is going to use Aldina for their kids (whereas Marie is one of the most common middle names).

    I like Aldina, but it doesn’t go with Holly very well. I feel like 40% of women have Marie as their middle name (Exaggeration- but still).
