    My Mum's maiden name is 'King' and we are considering it as a middle name (we are TTC) ... we love the way it sounds and looks with our possible baby names & surname...... but is it too weird as a middle name?

    My husband has his mother's maiden name as his middle name, as does his Dad - so it's a family tradition of sorts on my husband's side. I wouldn't burden my child with my maiden name, but I do like the name King.

    I'm hoping as long as we stay away from the first names Wayne or Jo it is acceptable?! :)

    I think it's fine as a middle name. I do actually know a Joanne King. I'm not entirely sure her parents realised it would end up being Jo King.

    Eh, what about Ming the Merciless? lol
    I see no trouble at all with King as a middle name, girl or boy - it's quite nice and interesting. My brother and I have my mother's maiden name as a middle name, and that's Mason, which is technically a boy's name, I suppose!

    I think King is pretty cool. If you weren't too sure about just King, you could go for Kingsley so you have it in there in a different way X
