Our grandparents were known by their middle name, our parents have/had middle names that carried a name through the generations, most of us hate pur middle names. What are your thoughts on giving your baby a middle name?

  • I like middle names, but not ones that are sentimental. I just choose a second name that I like and go with that. It makes their full name a bit more unique and less likely to find someone with the exact same name.

  • All my children have two middle names because my husband and I both do too. It is a personal choice but I found middle names the perfect way to add a little bit more meaning to my children’s names. For example I used Toniece for my eldest daughter which is my parents names Tony & Bernice combined. My son has his fathers and great grandfathers names for his and my youngest has my best friends name and her grandmothers middle name.

  • I like middle names and the stories behind them.

  • We like to carry on traditions too and carrying on names is rather lovely as long as everyone agrees!
