and what middle names would go nicely with it?

This is for my very good friend, currently living in Switzerland but eventually moving to the UK, her DH's surname starts with 'N' though. Would you think this as a problem?

Arden was the surname of a lady I used to work with. Again, lipstick comes to mind & I'm not keen on surnames as first names. but that's just my opinion.

I thought hard on too. Sorry!

I know a man called Arden. It's quite a nice name.

It could be a lovely name but it makes me think of erections. Which is a shame.

I like it but I think the child will get called Hard On at school, and at uni, and quite possibly at work as well. So No.

I too thought of Arden as a boy's name. blush

Anyway middle names for Arden could be
Arden Sophia
Arden Eloise
Arden Jeannette
Arden Violet

but regardless, I think with their surname starting with N it might jar a little? How often do we rattle off a middle name when introducing ourselves? If that doesn't bother them Arwen could be a nice alternative?

Can I also suggest Aurora or Autumn.

When children go through that really annoying pahse of rhyming thongs she will be Garden.
