On August 9, Gavin and Carrie Jones of Duncanville, Texas, welcomed a set of quints — three boys and two girls:
- Will Edward
- David Stephen
- Marcie Jane
- Seth Jared
- Grace Elise
Let’s play a game. You’re given a chance to change one of the above names (first + middle combo). Which one do you change, and what do you replace it with?

I’d remove David Stephen and replace it with Owen David. David seems to be a more formal first name than the others, and doesn’t really fit stylistically. Owen has the casualness of Will and Seth but the weight to balance out Marcie and David as a middle name complements the other middles nicely.
Marcie Jane -> Jane Marceline
Marcie Jane > Sara Blythe
Well, William for Will would be my first thought. Otherwise it’s a well-balanced, non-gimicky, nice set of names. Marcie also seems a bit quirky with the others, so maybe Hope Janelle or Jane Margaret for Marcie Jane.
David Stephen to Joseph Stephen
Will to Willem.
Marcie Jane to Jane Margaret
Change Seth Jared to Samuel James.
