  1. Our Mark is a third, so we chose his name so he could carry on his grandpa and daddy’s names. I was nervous about the name because I have a one syllable name and don’t always like how short it is, but Mark fits our son perfectly, and when it seems too short I just add on his middle name, and I love using his whole name regularly!
