Middle Names

My son’s is his maternal grandad’s surname which is also sort of a first name. He died when my wife was 13 so it’s nice and I didn’t argue.

my middle name is my dads middle name, which was my grandads first name. my sisters middle name is my mums middle name, which is my grans first name

Thank you

not on middlenamebook

It’s a catholic thing, regrettably (very much lapsed now, obvs).

Had to do 12 weekends of lessons for it and everything, when we were 15 and clearly only there to keep our parents happy.

How about one of these for @ma0sm

My daughter has two middle names, one is the middle name of my late mother in law (I’m not sure we didn’t use her first name, but I think her middle name is objectively prettier), and her second is my wife’s surname.

I think this will actually come in useful when my wife and daughter travel together, because it means they can prove a connection they otherwise wouldn’t be able to:

Yeah it’s my dad’s name. I like it, but if I use it then I share my initials with a racist organisations so…

My middle name is probably even less cool than my first name, if that’s even possible

What don’t you change your first name to Coolin

honestly it doesn’t affect my life at all

I don’t really consider mine part of my official name/part of me really.

My brother ended up with the middle name Clive!

My mum told my dad what she wanted to call me, he offered to register the birth or whatever, had a bit too much to drink inbetween the hospital and town hall/registry office so just gave me the same name as him.

Yes, yes, no.

I think your middle name should be Wilberforce.
