Second appeal for help of the day... In case baby turns out to be a boy!

We both like the first name Monty and DH wants second name Levin. Surname is fairly common, two syllables beginning with T.

Does Monty Levin Txxxx 'go'?

Other potential first names we could go for:
Theodore nn Teddy or Theo
Laurence nn Laurie ( is Laurie Levin Txxxx too much?)
Herbert nn Herb or Herbie
Wilfred
Jonty
Felix
Albert nn Bertie

Due in 3 weeks, hormones have turned my brain to mush and I am scared of doing something horrific to the poor child...

It's a great name. I adore the name Monty!

With the name before it ending in an 'e' sound (as almost all of your do) it just sounds like 'eleven'.

Mont Eleven
Bert Eleven
Jont Eleven
Etc!

Why Levin? It's not terrible, but certainly not not particularly nice. Makes me think of the guitarist Tony Levin.

Good point about the 'eleven' effect, hadn't noticed. Hmm.

Levin is a character in Anna Karenina, DH has a bit of a thing about him. He doesn't often express strong preferences on things like this so I'd like to find a way to use the name if we can.

Picture this: Golders Green, 1953...
