So after much deliberation we have narrowed our choice down to 2 names:
John or Murray?
Both have family connections and the middle name would be a surname from OH family followed by our own surname.

John especially with a surname as a middle name. John is a proper tradition boys name.

John for the reasons given by Winterdaisy

John. Murray feels like a surname to me so I think his name could seem like 3 surnames otherwise!

John is just so boring. I know it's a family now but John just says no effort.

Definitely John, I love it.

I like them both but I think it sort of depends how "surnamey" the middle name is, and how many syllables in that and your surname.
I'm don't think John says no effort - just because it used to be a popular name it doesn't mean that people now can't like it, or want to use it for family reasons.

John. 3 surnames in a row would be too much

Murray, John is dull

MamaLazarou Sat 02-Apr-16 19:06:17

So hard to choose, I love them both.

I'd go with John, for the reason chocolatecheesecake has given.

John, is my very very favourite. One was my first love

I think John is due a comeback and is much nicer than its trendy diminutive Jack.

Interestingly FIL and his brothers were: John, Murray, Douglas.

Murray by a long shot!

DontKillMyVibe Sat 02-Apr-16 19:52:35

John is boring IMO so on that basis I'd go with Murray

BoboBunnyH0p Sat 02-Apr-16 19:56:29

Prefer Murray to John. Murray is strong and unique sorry but John is just boring.

BatmanLovesLarry Sat 02-Apr-16 19:57:12

John - classic, but not common

BettyBi0 Sat 02-Apr-16 20:04:18

Murray is great! In fact both are good as you don't hear them ever for toddlers. I would 't let the surname as middle name put you off Murray as people never use middle names

TenThousandSpoons Sat 02-Apr-16 20:19:45

John - great, strong name smile
