The pattern for the name would be a three-syllable first name, a one-syllable second name, and a one-syllable surname. The problem Evelin has is that she feels if the middle name is used as the primary name (as Evelin, Celeste, and I all do), then the baby has a one-syllable name with a one-syllable surname. If we flip the first name with the middle name, that wouldn't be a problem, but then the full name wouldn't flow as well.
So, what do y'all think? We have a few options here:
*This option has the disadvantage of making the new baby the odd one out in the family. Growing up using my middle name made me the odd one out (everyone else in my immediate family went by their prénom), but I was deviating from the societal norm. In this case, the child would have the only "normal" naming pattern, thus standing out from the rest of family when the rest of the family has a "different" name ... I'm probably over thinking it, but that would seem to be more difficult than being the only one to go by a middle name.
