What are middle names for?
You just found out that you’re having a baby girl, and now you’re trying to come up with her perfect name. Middle names can help as they can be just as special as a first name. Middle names don’t have to be family names, and they don’t have to be traditional either. You can choose any name that you like for your child’s middle name. Some people choose to honor family members when choosing their baby girl name, whether it’s the wife’s family or the husbands family name there might be some traditions that have always been there. But that doesn’t mean you have to follow them, it’s up to you!
Families often choose the same name for siblings as a middle name. In our family, all the girls had the third middle name Ann which was a family name. As it only has one syllable, it’s easy to tag on as a third name to our given name. Famous people often choose lots of other names! Often people can make the middle name a nickname later on or even you can put the initials together to form a new baby girl name, for example, Amina Shy could become Ash!
Research has also indicated that having middle names improves people’s chances of getting a better job in the future! According to a study published in the European Journal of Social Psychology, people who have middle names are believed to have a high social position and to be intellectually superior.
