Matching Meanings
,

Hi Jennifer,

Your site has been my most visited site recently.

My wife and I are expecting a baby boy this fall (first child). However we got into a bit of confusion over a name we initially chosen. The name is Jayson Dallas Teo. We have chosen Jayson because he can be called Jay, for short. We like the middle name Dallas because it sounds like it’s for a sharp and witty person.

We recently have done a research on the meaning of the name and they don’t quite match up. Jayson (Jason)=a healer, and Dallas = a meadow dwelling. We need your advice to this matter. I look forward to your reply soon. Thanks 🙂

Regards,
Ern & MM

Dear Ern & MM,
It makes no difference whether the meanings “match up” or not for the first and middle name of the child. As long as you and your partner agree on the names and love them, they can be used!

Remember, a child rarely goes by his or her middle name–unless they are in trouble!

Hope that helps.

Sincerely,
Jennifer Moss
